Bousa Brewing Company the newest craft brewery in South Florida and Little River Districtâ€™s first independent brewery, celebrated the official grand opening of their taproom. The brand slogan, â€œSimply Good Beerâ€, embodies a straightforward, less-is-more spirit that is free of superlatives and grandiose claims to focus on serving quality beer that stands on its own. Guests had the unique opportunity to sample Bousaâ€™s 13 American and European-style brews which range from friendly introductory craft beers to rich and strong ales and lagers for the hardcore beer enthusiasts. Styles include: Honey Blonde Ale, Tripel, Guava Ale, Raspberry Wheat, Marzen, Stout, Ãmber, Saison, Session IPA, their flagship American Wheat, and the Quad in collaboration with Lincolnâ€™s Beard Brewing Co.
The grand opening also featured live music from Miamiâ€™s very own Locos por Juana, as well as games and giveaways. Head brewer Kayla Brogna, who hails from the renowned Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. in California and is now joining the ranks of South Florida’s female head brewers, was on-site for Q&A and to give tours of the newly completed 4-vessel 20 bbl and 2-vessel 3.5 bbl brewing system. The 12,000 SF brewery and taproom aims to become a meeting place where the local community can come together to enjoy a fresh pint and unwind but also network, play, and at times even break out of their comfort zones, all for the sake of having a good time.
