About M.I.A Brewing
Esta cervesa es M.I.A…
BLUEJAY is the new underground sound of Miami – a mix of indie, tribal, folk, and pop. The live shows are an enchanting romp; a well-balanced mix of pop hooks and compelling tribal cries from the depths of the spirit, all tied together by three-part vocal harmonies and the low singing lull of the cello. Bluejay will woo you and draw you in to their paranormal world of goblins, sex, and horror, like entering a lucid dream. JAY THOMAS (guitar and vocals) OSCAR QUESADA (cello and vocals) JOJO SUNSHINE (keys, vocals, and drums)
Crackerman Crackers were born out of love. My wife loves bread, but she can’t eat yeast. I was looking for a substitute for her that was both delicious and healthy. Using ingredients of the best quality available we finally were able to manufacture a cracker, which is super thin, very tasty and healthy at the same time. We distributed them among our friends and the members of our extensive families, and they came back and asked for more. While everybody loved the crackers, some challenged my German pride and asked for that dense, grain loaded whole wheat bread with its spices we are famous for on the other side of the pond. So we started to manufacture breads, too. Meanwhile we make more than a dozen varieties, all organic. You can get your supply at various markets, online and at shops in the area.
