Wynwood Brewing Introduces Laces IPA as New Year-Round

wynwoodlogoWynwood Brewing Company (Miami, Florida) has officially announced that it will replace its original Wynwood IPA later this month with a reformulated take that they are calling Laces IPA.

With a name inspired by “the ubiquitous pair of sneakers hanging on power lines by their laces across urban neighborhoods” such as the Wynwood Art District, Laces IPA is a “beautifully crafted” India Pale Ale brewed with “a blend of Mosaic, Amarillo and Falconers Flight hops.”  Coming in at 6.9% ABV, Laces IPA offers a “light golden crisp malt body and a dry finish.”

“When our doors opened in 2013, hop contracts and innovative hop varieties were hard to come by so we worked with what we had and created a classic West Coast IPA brewed with Columbus hops and balanced with a full malt body. Wynwood IPA was a solid IPA for the time, but a few things have changed over the past five years. First, we now have access to some amazingly unique and vibrant hop varieties. Second, the IPA has become the most recognizable and diverse beer style offering a virtual smorgasbord of flavor and style options for beer lovers. We have seen in our own taproom and in the market that consumers tastes have evolved. We are excited to debut our newest core offering, Laces IPA, which we’re confident will wrap taste buds in hop delicious.”

 

– Luis Brignoni, Founder of Wynwood Brewing Company

Laces IPA will completely replace Wynwood IPA as the brewery’s core/year-round IPA offering.  This change will be completed somewhere between the end of June and the start of July 2018.  You can expect to find Laces IPA pouring at all South Florida craft beer establishments that normally carry offerings from Wynwood Brewing.  Prost!

Wynwood Brewing Plans Black Friday Release of Coqui-To Barrel-Aged Milk Stout

CoquitoWBCOfeatureWynwood Brewing Company (Miami, Florida) will officially kick off the holiday season by hosting a special, limited release event for Coqui-To Barrel-Aged Milk Stout beginning at noon on November 24 – Black Friday.

The folks at Wynwood Brewing created Coqui-To Barrel-Aged Milk Stout to mimic the flavors of “Coquito”, a traditional Puerto Rican holiday beverage “known as Puerto Rico’s eggnog, made with rum, coconut milk, sweetened condensed milk, vanilla, cinnamon, and cloves.”  Their brewers pulled this off by crafting a Rum Barrel-aged Imperial Milk Stout that was then finished off with toasted coconut, cinnamon, clove and vanilla beans. The resulting Coqui-To Barrel-Aged Milk Stout comes together as a unique treat that is meant to serve as the perfect beer to share with friends and family this holiday season.

“We’ve been wanting to make this beer for a long time,” said Wynwood Brewing Founder Luis Brignoni. “Coquito is something my family always enjoyed during the holidays. Now that we have more production space to brew and barrel-age, we can offer a taste of this Puerto Rican tradition to our fans.”

Coqui-To Barrel-Aged Milk Stout will officially release in Wynwood Brewing’s Tap Room at noon on Friday, November 24.  Those who attend this Limited Release Event will have the option to enjoy Coqui-To Barrel-Aged Milk Stout on draft or purchase 750ml crowler “shorty” cans for $20 each.  In addition to the beer release, this event “will also feature a special brewery tour of Miami’s first craft production brewery showcasing the barrel-aging process for Coqui-To.”  If you happen to be in the area on Black Friday, make sure you swing by the brewery and get into the holiday spirit by raising a glass of Coqui-To Barrel-Aged Milk Stout with the crew at Wynwood Brewing.  Prost!
