Beat Culture Brewery in northwest Miami-Dade released a new beer Tuesday dedicated to the people of the Bahamas.
The hefeweizen is called Bahama Yellow and 10% of all sales of this beer will be donated to the City of Miami’s #BahamaStrong initiative.
“It’s a light wheat beer. The color is reminiscent of the Bahamian sunset hence the name. Everybody here in Miami whether we admit it or not we have ties to the Bahamas, it’s like a distant cousin where we do vacation frequently, so we have to do our part to help out,” said Alan Espino, Beat Culture co-founder.
The beer pours hazy gold with a fluffy white head of foam and has aromas of sweet orange peel, hints of banana, papaya and bubble gum.
“Folks have responded really well. I guess they really love the idea of drinking charitably,” said Espino.
Bahama Yellow is available on draft at the Beat Culture tap room located at 7250 NW 11 Street in Miami. You can also find it by the end of the week at Union Beer Store, Kush, Lokal, and Exit 1.
“It is light, really easy to drink, that has tropical flavor. So it is aimed stylistically to really showcase the Bahamas not post storm, but really in the way we all know it,” said Espino.
Aside from the Bahama Yellow beer, the brewery is also collecting donation items such as water, batteries, flashlights, small generators, and toiletries.
