Yard House may be a nationwide chain with locations across the U.S., but don’t let that fool you – it’s a favorite of Miami Beach locals, especially those with a penchant for craft beer. Happy hour runs every weekday from 3 pm to 7:30 pm, with a late-night happy hour from 10 pm to close (Sunday through Wednesday). Not only will you get $2 off all draft beer, but you can also pair your favorite brew with a half-off appetizer to satisfy your after-work appetite. The extensive beer menu is split into handy categories to suit a variety of tastes, with everything from the Funky Buddha Floridian to the Concrete Beach Havana Lager.

Pizza & Burger by Michael Mina

Get deals on food and drinks during nightly Social Hour, with half-off beers on tap including local brews like MIA Miami Weiss, Concrete Beach Mas Hops, and MIA Tourist Trappe.


Counted as one of the Miami area’s best happy hours by the Miami New Times, Ricky’s is home to South Beach’s longest running happy hour, with weekday specials starting at 5 pm until 10 pm.

Choose from a variety of draft and bottled beers, including several local creations like the Cigar City Jai Alai.

Abbey Brewing Co

Abbey Brewing Co opened in the mid-90s when Miami Beach locals were far more interested in chic cocktails than handcrafted brews.
