Featured Brewery Article: Titanic Brewing Company

In the world of craft beer, Miami has become one to watch, home to a growing number of innovative breweries and taprooms where you can enjoy some of the best craft beers in the country. Here, Miami locals know there’s no shortage of great places to stop by when you’re craving a freshly-poured brew, with a wide variety of options to suit the beer palates of everyone from beer snobs to casual drinkers.

One of the best breweries in Miami is the Titanic Brewing Company, counted among the oldest and most respected brewpubs in the city. Located in Coral Gables directly next to the University of Miami baseball field, Titanic Brewing Company has been a hometown favorite for years. The brewery’s laidback ambiance, well-rounded beer list, and carefully crafted cuisine have made it a top choice for locals and visitors alike, cementing its status as a pillar of Miami’s craft beer community.

Sailing onto the Craft Beer Scene in the 1990s

The idea for Titanic Brewing Company was first developed by Kevin Rusk in late 1995. As a resident of the world’s “cruise capital,” Rusk wanted to create a brewery and restaurant concept that has a maritime-inspired spin. Thus, Titanic Brewing Company was born. From the moment you walk through the door, you have the feeling of being out at sea aboard a large, distinguished vessel, complete with dark wood tones and steam engine-inspired elements.

Setting out with the determination to create a unique place for Miami locals to enjoy, Rusk combined three key components when designing the space: a microbrewery, a fresh seafood restaurant, and a live entertainment venue. Excited locals welcomed the new addition to the community, and unlike the ill-fated ship of the same name, Titanic Brewing Company has achieved marked success over the years.

An Award-Winning Brewery

Titanic Brewing Company has six house beers, which have been perfected over the brewery’s more than two decades of experience. From the Triple Screw (an award-winning, German-style pilsner with German hops and imported pilsner malt) to the Shipbuilders Oatmeal Stout (a rich, mocha-esque stout with full-bodied flavor), Titanic’s selection of trademark brews has something for everyone. Not only have the recipes been carefully refined over the years, but the highest-quality ingredients have been sourced to provide an unparalleled flavor experience.

In addition to these core brews, you can also choose from more than 25 original recipes that are rotated on a yearly basis. The brewmaster regularly switches up this mix of guest and seasonal brews, so you can always count on having something new to try. Sample delicious brews like the Nib Smuggler from Funky Buddha Brewery or La Finca Miami from The Tank Brewing Co., taking a flavor tour around Miami’s top-rated breweries without ever leaving Titanic.

If you find that you simply can’t decide between the extensive selection of tempting brews, we recommend the Porthole Sampler. You’ll get six, 5-ounce pours of the most popular brews at Titanic Brewing Company, setting you up with the perfect share-friendly sampler.

A Menu that Doesn’t Disappoint

When Kevin Rusk founded Titanic Brewing Company, he realized that breweries at the time weren’t typically known for high-end cuisine – and he was determined to change this. The menu highlights the best of fresh, local seafood and elevates classic, pub-style favorites, offering a full selection of appetizers, entrees, and sides. If you come with a group, there are plenty of craving-worthy starters to split with the table, like the fried calamari, smoked fish dip, sausage and cheese board, and Cuban-style quesadillas. A variety of fresh, flavorful salads provide options on the lighter side, while indulgent entrees like a crawfish and andouille bisque, southern-style burger, and classic jambalaya are perfect for a weekend treat. Stop by on a Saturday for the prime rib special, pairing the sizeable, 16-ounce cut with a fresh draft beer of your choosing.

Your New Favorite Hangout

Titanic Brewing Company hosts an everyday happy hour, offering drink discounts and specials between 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. Save a dollar off house beers and other drinks, plus a selection of $6 bar food favorites like chorizo tacos and meatloaf sliders – perfect for winding down after a busy day. The three-hour happy hour and money-saving discounts mean you’ll be able to savor two or three pours of the brewery’s high-quality brews without overspending, which is always a plus.

The laidback scene is the perfect spot to hang with friends, and the welcoming atmosphere is just one of the many reasons the Titanic is a neighborhood favorite. Despite its proximity to the university, Titanic Brewing Company has managed to avoid becoming a chaotic party spot, instead serving as a relaxing hangout destination for locals, craft beer lovers, and in-the-know tourists. In addition to great beers and delicious food, you’ll also be able to enjoy an ever- rotating lineup of entertainment, including open blue jam, jazz sessions, and even Sunday night karaoke.
