The Miami Beach Edition Debuts New Brew at Pineapples & Pizza

The Miami Beach EDITION will celebrate the launch of its new exclusive hotel brew, Iguanita, at its popular Matador Bar monthly live music series, Pineapples & Pizza, on Thursday, January 31.

Other EDITION hotels around the world have also partnered with local breweries to create a custom beer to represent the hotel, and now the tradition continues in Miami Beach with Iguanita. Meaning iguana in Spanish, Iguanita pays homage to South Florida’s diverse roots and tropical wildlife. The Iguanita bottle is also a nod to The Miami Beach EDITION’s tropical locale with the design featuring a sunset color scheme and a sunbathing iguana surrounded by palm trees.

Brewed by Biscayne Bay Brewing Company, a 100% independent craft brewery headquartered in Doral, Florida, with a flagship taproom set to open inside the Old Post Office building in Downtown Miami later this year, Iguanita is a crisp and easy-drinking lager. The brew blends classic German flavor with light fruity and floral notes from Hallertau hops to create a bright golden color and a sessionable taste. Iguanita can only be found at The Miami Beach EDITION at all the hotel’s outlets by the bottle at Matador Bar, Matador Room, Tropicale, Basement Miami, in guest room minibars, and at Market at EDITION, where it can also be found on tap.

To celebrate the debut of its new craft beer, The Miami Beach EDITION will host a special extended edition of Pineapples & Pizza, the delicious monthly pizza, cocktail, and live music series at Matador Bar on Thursday, January 31 at 8 PM.

A local favorite, the event offers a rotating off-menu pizza paired with a signature Pineapple cocktail to provide a savory experience every month for $35.  This month’s Spicy Sausage & Kale Pizza can either be enjoyed with the Pineapple cocktail or for $25 guests can pair their pie with a freshly poured glass of Iguanita to celebrate the launch. Hotel guests and locals alike are invited to bring their friends, share a pizza, and have a few brews while jamming to live music by Eli La O and a special guest starting at 8 PM.

Matador Bar is located inside The Miami Beach EDITION at 2901 Collins Avenue, Miami Beach. Matador Bar is open Sunday through Thursday from 6 pm to 2 am and Friday and Saturday from 6 pm to 3 am. For more information visit or call 786.257.4600.
