Biscayne Bay Brewing Company is planning to open at the Old United States Post Office and Courthouse this Winter.
The brewery will open in 6,200 square feet on the third floor of the building, where the Miami Weather Bureau was located from 1914-1929 (their weather instruments were on the roof).
A micro brewing system will be custom fabricated for the layout, where small batches of artisanal and experimental beers will constantly be produced and rotated for customers.
Completed in 1914, the structure was designed by by Kiehnel and Elliott and Oscar Wenderoth. It was added to the U.S. National Register of Historic Places in 1989.
Post Office Development LLC, managed by Daniel Peña, is overseeing redevelopment of the building. Peña is also a principal of Stambul Construction Company, and previously restored the Eurostars Langford Hotel (originally the Miami National Bank building).
