    Any recommendations on where to stay for Wakefest? Will be in Miami for 4 days total. Would like to get out and see what Miami has to offer. Is downtown best? Staying on Miami Beach worth it? I’ve tried looking at Airbnb’s vs Hotels. Probably should have secured a room before now, but oh well

    There are some nice hotels in the downtown/brickell area, can be pricey. You could also stay by Miami International Airport. That puts you in between Doral and Wynwood, two best spots in Miami for beer at the moment. Uber/Lyft rides should not be that bad from there. If you are talking straight proximity then downtown/brickel would be best

    Any one else think the lions are a tad hot? I’ve cracked Vanilla and Coffee so far, big barrel presence (almost as big as the adjunct). Beer is real good, think it will be even better in 6 months

    First time going to wakefest, and I was wondering are there any tap takeovers or events around the area days before or after the fest? Obviously, the 3 Sons event on Sunday, but looking for other places to be and what-have-yous.

    Wakefest list of breweries is out. Surprised Cycle is not going this year to Wakefest. Any others you are surprised that are either going/not going?

    Not entirely surprised by that, they sorta mailed it in last year

    I'd argue to the contrary, I think their beers have been very good recently. They've definitely lost the hype they once had though

    Agreed about recent Cycle beers. Although I do wonder if some of the hype-loss was intentional on Doug's part, as he seemed tired of the flippers and mules.

    But I read @LennyRubio 's comment to be specifically about which beers Cycle chose to bring to WakeFest last year (and I wasn't there, so I don't know what they did or didn't bring).

    I believe they brought crank and sharrow to wakefest last year, that’s what I’m referring to

    Apparently they sold out of the 400 bottles last night. There were 50 people at the event so that means everyone bought 8...

    Oh that makes a lot more sense then, thought it was event only last night and then the rest would be available after the event was over

    Coming from NJ, I was hoping Kane would show up. Not sure if they were there last year either though. This will be my first time there.

    Fest is over a week away and currently shows 10% chance of rain. High of 73 and low 61. Always best to be prepared for rain though!

    No BS, I checked yesterday and it said something about rain all week and AM showers on Saturday. Could have gotten confused though. My bad.

    Coming from a place where it's supposed to be -19 tomorrow, I'll happily take 70 and rain. Might as well bring my speedo.

    Kane was not at Wakefest last year but they did pour Coconut ANTEAD at Huna Day about a month later in Tampa. Love me some Kane - hope they come. Cheers!

    Agreed but the loss of hype I feel is due to the fact that they are making so much more beer and it is so much more accessible which is to our benefit. And, as we know, rarity breeds hype. but the recent beers have been very solid so win win if you like their stouts.

    When did they announce what beers breweries are bringing to the fest (besides wakefield) last year? It's getting pretty close to the fest date...

    White gold is actually Maple 27 yr Willet barrel big poppa with kopi Luwak, the big man posted it on his insta today.

    Wakefield taplist was posted the Thursday of that week, the other breweries were that Wednesday

    As much pain as it is to wait for the taplist to drop lol

    Looks like DFPF isn’t ready for Wakefest this year? Bummer. I drank a gallon of it on Thursday before Wakefest last year.

    I’ve not seen the VIP tap list yet. But DFPF isn’t something that would typically be on it. It was all stouts last year.

    I’m not even sure if I’m going to go to Wakefest this year. I’m down here for 3 sons Lumberjack day.

    I'm with my wife in Miami for the weekend and she doesn't really like beer so it's hard to justify wakefest, but is it still worth swinging by the tap room?
