Opa Locka Craft Brewery


Miami New Times recently showcased Legacy Caribbean Craft Brewery’s new Opa-Locka location. Here is a quick excerpt from the article:

In the end, Fernandez opted to keep Legacy in Opa-locka. The brewery is located across the street from the Miami-Opa-locka Executive Airport and a mile from St. Thomas and Florida Memorial universities. The brewery is named after his grandfather, who left a craft brewing legacy with his grandsons.

The brewing facility is 1,600 square feet and houses a two-barrel brewing system. Fernandez considers it a nanobrewery that’s “a lot better” than what he had. He’s hoping to be open to the public before Grovetoberfest on October 15.
