Brewery Planned At Old U.S. Post Office and Courthouse

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).

what’s planned for the rest of the building? What is there now? There is a large parking facility right across the street and so is MDC. I think it would be great to turn the whole thing into eateries and bars with a “food court” type thing at street level — a much nicer version of the old post office in DC. Does it have an interior courtyard? Give Bayside some competition!

The Old Post Office food court never took off (hence the fact the GSA took bids to redevelop it and Trump won), and a food court already exists on Flagler, which was never successful at being anything but shady.

Didn’t know about the food court there before. I agree with you on the Flagler thing…nasty.

Also, repair the stairs and ledges destroyed by street skateboarders/inliners/BMXers and urine-impregnated sidewalks.

His beers are fantastic, but the douche factor is concerning. Guy sold bottles of Bake at his cellar sale for $1500, and $22 for a 4-pack of 3.5% Haterade is laughable.

If only Civil Society was closer…

A craft brewery where a bunch of drunk homeless crackheads hang out. What could possibly go wrong?
