Alchemy & Science’s Two-Pronged Approach for Craft Growth

If you ask Alan Newman what it’s like to build a craft brewery in Miami, expect to hear a few expletives.
Newman, the president of Alchemy & Science — a craft beer incubator and wholly-owned subsidiary of Boston Beer — has been trying to pry open the doors to Concrete Beach Brewery for nearly 18 months but the company, Newman said, has encountered a myriad of confusing permitting and zoning regulations along the way.
On a recent visit to Miami, Brewbound toured the Concrete Beach facility. A 20-barrel brewhouse and multiple fermentation tanks have already been installed, indoor and outdoor taprooms are built and the entire space is, essentially, a few fresh coats of paint away from opening to the general public.
