Not that we need a designated beer week to celebrate drinking beer...but this week is American Craft Beer Week. Here are some nearby Miami-Dade favorites that are celebrating this joyous week! Thanks to South Florida Beer Blog for the info! 
Monday May 16th
 (5835 Sunset Drive Miami, FL 33143)-  To kick off a week of American Craft beer Cerzvezas will host the Night of 1000 IBUs. Starting at 7pm come in for 6 different beers on draft brewed to let the Hops be the star of the show. PLUS we'll have 2 RANDALLS serving up Avery IPA poured through two different types of hops (Centenniel and Warrior), a great experiment to show you what the variety of hops really brings to a beer. They'll have these two Avery IPAs, Dogfish Head Hellhound, Avery Maharaja, Stone IPA, and Southern Tier 2XIPA all on draft. You'll be able to get both pints of Avery as a packaged deal for $10 or a flight of both Avery IPAs, Stone IPA and Maharaja for $12. Hellhound only available by the glass and they'll have a deal of $1 off any bottle IPAs and $2 off large bottle IPAs... get your enamel ready for all of those Alpha Acids!
