Cervecería La Tropical, Cuba’s oldest brewery, now calls Miami home – WSVN 7News | Miami News, Weather, Sports
Here at Deco we are always looking for a new restaurant or a place to have a drink. Thank you “Beery” – and this time we’ve found a place that offers all of that and more. Deco picks a place with a lot of history that is high on your list.
Don’t worry, be hoppy!
Cuba’s oldest brewery, Cervecería La Tropical, is now based in Miami.
Manny Portuondo, Cervecería La Tropical: “I thought to myself: How can something with over 135 years of inheritance just disappear?” And I made it my passion project in life to bring it back to life and bring it back in a big way. “
This new hotspot honors its roots while fully capturing its SoFlo vibe.
Manny Portuondo: “A brand with a Cuban soul, but a Miami lifestyle – of sun, fun and rhythm – and hopefully we will be successful here.”
The place has it all. It’s a restaurant, a brewery, a tap room and a garden – all rolled into one.
Manny Portuondo: “When you come to La Tropical, the first thing you will see is Jardines La Tropical, a tropical botanical garden in the middle of the city.”
Sure the view is nice but let’s talk about the beers because this place makes its own beer right on-site.
Manny Portuondo: “Our flagship is La Tropical La Original, a Viennese-style amber warehouse whose recipe dates back to 1888. And then we brewed a tropical double IPA with around 9.4% alcohol for craftsmen, which we call Gasolina. ”
You can fill up with more than the beer. La Tropical also cooks something special to highlight its roots.
Cindy Hutson, cook, Cervecería La Tropical: “My menu will be tapas, Caribbean, Cuban inspired. There are many options for all types of dinners. “
There are Cuban staples like croquetas and frita burgers, but if you really want to drink your beer and eat it too, go for the steamed clams.
Cindy Hutson: “Mussels with a nice artisanal chorizo.”
Do you remember how we said beer? There’s a lot in the sauce, and that makes everyone a hoppy camper.
Diandra Lamas, Diner: “When you go to a brewery, you often go to a brewery and then you have to go to dinner, or you go to dinner and then you go to a brewery, but there is also great food and great here Beer. “
