Off-Site is a minimalistic nano-brewery located at Little River that is the spawn of Wynwood’s tragically departed Boxelder Craft Beer Market and one of our favourite Miami eateries, Taquiza. The menu selections are limited, but what makes it into your mouth is always delicious. From the cocktails to the cuisine (don’t sleep on the corn dogs), practically everything at Off-Site is created in-house—and what isn’t has been meticulously picked to make you happy. Off-Site, a brewery for laid-back residents and industry types, also features wine tastings, pop-ups, and live music by some of the city’s best artists. Off-Site is the new brainchild of Steve Santana (Tequila) and Adam Darnell (Boxelder). It’s located in the Little River district, about one block away from The Citadel. It’s a nano-brewery and restaurant that serves a small menu of carefully curated “bar food.” Santana spearheads the food part of this operation. As we’ve seen from Taquiza, it goes without saying that he puts an insane amount of effort into EVERY menu item. Everything food-wise is made in house. You order at the counter, then take a number. So, there is both indoor and patio seating. They do have many beers available that they brew. I started with the French Onion Dip, served with house-made chips. This is a great snack/appetiser. Even though the Fried Chicken Sandwich is the most talked-about item on the menu, I had to go for the Cheese Burger, being a burger enthusiast. This is unlike any other burger I’ve had so far anywhere. The house-blend of beef is a koji-cured 6 oz. Patty served with an aioli, diced white onions and American cheese on a toasted sesame potato bun. Koji is a mould that develops on fermented rice containing Aspergillus Oryzae. Basically will pack an extra umami punch into beef. It sounds weird, yes, but take the leap of faith!
