Concrete Beach Brewery Honors Mango Season with Limited Release Beer

There are three things guaranteed during the summer months in Miami – hotter temps, rainy afternoons, and mangos. This summer, Concrete Beach Brewery is putting those mangos to use by bringing back its coveted Mango Gose for a second year.

Inspired by the mountains of tropical fruit sold by street cart vendors, Mango Gose is a German-style wheat ale brewed with salt and coriander. Breaking from tradition, this beer also has fresh mango and lime zest for a refreshingly pleasant summer beer with a local twist.

“Last year we received great feedback about our Mango Gose, so I’m excited to bring it back for a second summer and give people the chance to purchase it in cans as well,” said Marco Reyna, head brewer for Concrete Beach. “Goses are traditionally on the sour side with a touch of salinity, so between that and the fresh fruit notes, it’s perfect for summer!”

Concrete Beach Brewery has partnered with Miami-based EcoRipe Tropicals, a leading importer and distributor of quality tropical fruits and vegetables, for the mangos. The local business donated the mangos, which were added during the whirlpool stage of the process.

The summer time brew was premiered earlier this month at the 25th International Mango Festival where the brewery hosted the Concrete Beach Brewery Beer Garden complete with lawn games and cold beer.

If you missed the Mango Festival, you still have a chance to try Mango Gose before the summer ends by visiting Concrete Beach in Wynwood. Swing by and take a 6-pack to go or stay for a while and enjoy the vibe!

Just in time for the start of summer, we introduce Havana Lager!

Inspired by both Miami’s prevalent and colorful Cuban culture and the rich brewing history of Vienna style lagers in Cuba, Concrete Beach Brewery recently released Havana Lager, a suave lager with a beautiful sunburst-orange hue and foamy white head.

The launch of Havana Lager in 12oz. cans was celebrated at Havana Nights, a new monthly event hosted at the Wynwood-based brewery. The first Havana Nights fell during Father’s Day Weekend during a 3-day event series, and fans were encouraged to bring the entire familia, both human and canine, for a weekend of celebrating dad with refreshing beers, delicious Cuban food, salsa music, dominos and Cuban cigars.

In the past two years, Concrete Beach Brewery has become a Wynwood staple, uniting the community with a common love of traditions. With an artistic array of classically brewed ales and lagers, Concrete Beach works hard to ensure that every pint conveys their passion and that their beer complements any occasion.

The new year-round beer will be available on draft at the Social Hall and across South Florida. To find where Havana Lager 12oz. cans are available near you, visit Concrete Beach’s beer finder.

Wynwood Central Artist Collective

The Wynwood Central Artist Collective was commissioned to celebrate and show appreciation for the talented artists who have helped make Wynwood an internationally recognized arts center.  Developed and managed by Oberhausen Marketing & Public Relations (OBR) and produced and curated by prolific and esteemed street artist Daniel Fila, a.k.a. KRAVE, and Yuval Ofir of Yo Miami, the exhibit showcased the works of nine prominent local street artists on the fencing of the Wynwood Central construction site during Art Basel 2013.
