National Beer Day celebrates the day in 1933 that the Cullen-Harrison act was signed into law, reversing the prohibition on selling beer in the United States. In 2009, a Virginian man named Justin Smith decided to commemorate this historic day and created his own unofficial National Beer Day. Since then, it has been recognized by the state of Virginia, and unofficially by millions of brew aficionados nationwide. One of the best things about beer is the sheer number of varieties that exist. IPAs, Pilsners, Stouts, Sours… the list goes on and on. In terms of alcohol content, beer usually ranges between 4-7% ABV, meaning you can sip a cold one on a hot summer day without much worry of intoxication. Last but not least, it’s sold in six-packs, so you can share with your friends! More…

Salt & Straw
No one said beer has to drink and Miami’s newest ice cream shop, Salt & Straw is behind that philosophy. The Portland-based brand created a Mango Habanero “IPA Sorbet” in collaboration with Wynwood Brewing Co. The sorbet is made by taking the hop-heavy Laces IPA from Wynwood Brewing and adding a load of fresh habaneros, then cooling it off with Florida mangoes and citrus. This beautifully clean, simple sorbet is as refreshingly quenchable as the beer. The sorbet can be enjoyed by the scoop in a cup, waffle cone, or as part of a to-go flight; or can be taken home by the pint. Salt & Straw has locations in Wynwood (246 NW 25th Street) and Coconut Grove (3015 Grand Ave., Unit 145) and is also available through UberEATS and Door Dash.
