After making my way through the historical district from south to north, I continued north to 16th Street and then headed west until I reached the Abbey Brewing Company, the first microbrewery to open in Miami. It was time for lunch, but they don’t serve food at the Abbey, only beer, so I asked if I could get food elsewhere and bring it back. This was fine, so I went down the street to a Greek place to get a gyro (which I was surprised to find had french fries inside of it—and I was even more surprised to learn later on that this is a Greek, not American, practice!). Then I returned to the Abbey and looked over the menu.
They had various “flight” options, which sounded like a good idea. I almost got a flight of seven beers, but for some reason I decided to ask how big each beer was. Beers in flights are usually around 120 ml or 4 oz, but the waitress said they were larger. You may not be able to tell from the photo here, but these beers are in fact twice the size of a normal flight beer; had I ordered the seven-beer flight, I would have had 3.5 pints to drink, including beers with an ABV of 10%. Even at four beers, I was a little tipsy when I left the Abbey and headed back out into the bright afternoon sun of Miami.
