Congratulations Dave Butler!

What Brews You Pt. 1 is over and we’re pleased to share that we’ve chosen our first round winner! The fabulous beer idea came from Dave Butler of Tamarac, FL. His entry:

A mojito cream ale. Light ABV, with big flavors of lime and a slight mint undercurrent. Possibly with some aging in rum-soaked oak.

Sounds delicious to us! And lucky for all of us, his idea will be coming to life later this year. The finished version of Dave’s creation will be on tap at the Social Hall once it has been brewed. In the meantime Dave will work closely with head brewer Chris McGrath and team on finalizing the recipe and planning for the official brew. In addition to brewing his beer with the team, he will also receive a Concrete Beach kegerator, tap handle and a case of Concrete Beach pint glasses.

If you have a great idea for a beer, we have good news, What Brews You Pt. 2 runs through the end of May. Go to and tell us what Miami-inspired beer you would brew at Concrete Beach. We’re looking for creative, out-of-the box thinking. Let your imagination run wild. A second winner will be chosen in early June.
