You can drink to it: North Miami Beach is days away from soliciting businesses to create the area’s first microbrewery district.
Businesses seeking to set up shop here will compete for one of three grants — as much as $200,000 in taxpayer money in the way of equipment for them to craft their own beer.
If the business fails, the city will keep the equipment. If it thrives after five years, the business can keep it.
For North Miami Beach, it’s an incentive to redevelop an area seeking to stand out among its neighbors — and bring in money, too.
