The 5.1%-abv lager is dry hopped with one pound of Citra hops per barrel for a profile that’s light with a robust hoppy flavor, according to the brewery. The beer is named for a type of street art that is literally locked onto benches, street lights and other public furniture. Wynwood’s newest beer is now available at the brewery’s taproom, and in restaurants and bars throughout South Florida. In addition to brewing at Wynwood’s 15-barrel brewhouse, the company contracts additional production to the Craft Beer Alliance.
