Miami, FL – Bousa Brewing Company, the newest craft brewery in South Florida and Little River District’s first independent brewery, is pleased to announce the launch and distribution of its first flagship beer in partnership with leading wholesale distributor Eagle Brands. The brand will begin distribution to bars and restaurants in Monroe and Miami-Dade counties in December 2016.
“We are extremely excited to be part of South Florida’s surging craft beer scene and introduce the community to our first IPA beer. During the past year, we have worked on developing and perfecting our craft beer recipe and resolving logistics to get to the point where we can supply it to the community of South Florida and that moment has finally arrived. We are sure that our partnership with such a respected distributor in the beer community as Eagle Brands will provide us with a strong foundation to solidly enter the beer market in South Florida,” said Bousa Brewing Company co-founder Juan Pablo Vergara.
The brand’s flagship medium body IPA features a delicate balance of malty and hoppy-citrusy notes. The team describes it as a friendly, introductory beer that will attract diners to try Bousa for the first time.
“Eagle Brands Sales is excited to announce our newest Miami Craft Beer partner Bousa Brewing Company. We look forward to bringing Bausa’s high quality craft beers to beer lovers throughout Miami-Dade and Monroe counties,” said George Halper, General Manager at Eagle Brands.
Bousa’s mission is to bring back simplicity to beer and to life. The brand slogan, “Simply Good Beer”, embodies a straightforward, less-is-more spirit that is free of superlatives and grandiose claims to focus on serving authentic, quality beer that stands on its own.
“We believe less is more and have transmitted this mantra to our beer. There’s a diverse amount of beer on the market, but our approach is different. We want to be accessible to people who don’t know about beer yet but be interesting for people who do already know and have strong opinions about beer,” said Bousa Brewing Company co-founder Enrique García.
Bousa beer is expected to show up on draft lines starting December 8, followed with the rollout of beer cans projected for 2017.
In the meantime, the Bousa team is also constructing a 11,250 SF brewery and taproom in Miami’s booming Little River District neighborhood. When complete, the facility will have an initial capacity of 4,000 barrels/year, expandable up to 60,000 barrels/year.
The opening of Bousa’s first taproom is planned for the first half of 2017. Additional information will be announced as details become available at bousabrewing.com and on Bousa’s social media accounts.

The public will get their first chance to sample Bousa’s flagship IPA at Art Beat Miami in Little Haiti starting on Thursday, November 30th through Sunday, December 4th.
Flagship Beer Details
There is a yeasty bread sweetness right at the start that quickly moves on to the more intense citrus peel and earthy pine of the hops. The bitter is equivalent to fresh coffee with a hint of mocha added. It contains the subtly sweet aroma of floral infused pineapple and grapefruit citrus with pine resin. [ABV 6.2%]
