Spring is here, although it feels like Summer with temps hitting the 90s on some days, but that just means it’s time to head outside and enjoy happy hour! To keep enjoying the sunny days, we’ve rounded a few great outdoor hangs to prepare you for shot girl summer – see what we did there?

Bay 13 Brewery & Kitchen

Located in the heart of Coral Gables, making it the perfect spot for an after work happy hour, Bay 13 is an Australian style brewpub with a top-of-the-line beer selection. The outdoor patio is nestled next to a scenic fountain with comfortable lounge chairs sitting on a manicured lawn. If you’re trying to get the party started early, we suggest going in for a pint of the Drop Bear Double IPA with an 8.8% ABV.

Cerveceria La Tropical Wynwood

The original La Tropical Cerveceria in Havana, Cuba dates back to 1888. Come present day, La Tropical has made its way to Wynwood recreating the “jardines” or gardens that were once part of the original location. They’ve partnered with Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden to create an immersive outdoor experience where QR codes can be scanned to reveal the story behind each plant. Our beer pick, the Nativo Key with hints of mango, passion fruit, pineapple, lemon and lime. Que rico!
