My New Favorite Brewery: 21st Amendment

May 26, 2012|Posted in: Uncategorized

I no longer have the luxury of going into a bar and asking for a Manny’s or Mac & Jack. (Oh, how I miss you both!) That being said, I have to find something new; something that will match or exceed the taste and quality of the aforementioned microbrews. And in doing so, I discovered a magnificent brewery in South Beach: 21st Amendment*.

I walked over there from work Thursday night, found a place at the bar, and ordered myself a Brew Free or Die Hard IPA. By their own admission, it’s their top-selling beer, and I can see why that is. It’s fucking delicious. After I polished that one off I merely ordered by pointing at whatever looked good around me at the bar. The gents that were sitting next to me had the beer pictured to the left. Unfortunately, I forget which brew it is. After the first beer I was starting to feel hungry. So I ordered a Reuben, and it was well worth the $11.95. Good beer, good food. (Fuck you, Ram.)

The best part is that while you can absolutely order from a huge list of specialty microbrews–they have a fucking wheat beer that is fermented again with watermelon!–these babies are available in cans in local stores around town. My only concern, thus far, is where in the hell I’m going to keep all my beer cold when I move in to my new place next week. (There’s hardly any room in the refrigerator!)

I highly recommend you check it out; if not at the brewery itself, then pick up a six pack and go have fun at Mission Dolores Park.
