It’s almost time for the North Miami Brewfest, hosted by and benefitting the Claflin School of Hospitality at Florida International University! This year it will be happening on Nov. 16th from 3-6 PM, and it’s one of my favorite beer festivals in the state.
To learn a little more about the event, I spoke to Terry Witherell, VP of Strategic Communications and Marketing, and Christina Jardim, Director of Enterprise Development at FIU to learn a little more about the history of the festival and learn what will be coming in 2019.
We then spoke to Matt Crawford from MIA Brewing. He’s a proud graduate of the Brewing Arts program at FIU, and is using what he learned in his career. We spoke about his background, and how the Brewing Arts program helped him get where he is today.
Finally, we chat a bit with Dr. Barry Gump, a chemist, homebrewer, and the head of the Brewing Arts program. We chat about the program, chemistry beer vs. wine, the 2019 event, and much more!
Tickets are available now, and we hope to see you there!
