Cinco de Mayo beer dinner at The Federal will star J. Wakefield Brewing

Can’t-Miss Craft Beer Event: The Federal’s Cinco de Mayo beer dinner featuring J. Wakefield Brewing. Dinner starts at 7 p.m. Tuesday, May 5, at The Federal, 5132 Biscayne Blvd., Miami. 

Story: I’m very excited to host this special “Mexico Meets Miami” Cinco de Mayo beer dinner, and I hope to meet some of you there.

The Federal’s Cesar Zapata and Ani Meinhold, along with J. Wakefield owner-brewmaster Johnathan Wakefield, have put together a five-course, six-beer blowout (with two shots of top-shelf tequila for good measure).

The entire menu is explosive, but I’m most looking forward to Zapata’s chorizo flauta, migas, avocado mousse and Mexican crema paired with Wakefield’s new Not Even French, a saison brewed with fresh guanabana.
