Keg & Klean

Join The Wynwood Yard, Debris Free OceansMiami Waterkeeper, and New Leaders Council - Florida for this month's community clean up. Working together to clean up Wynwood, we will make an impact on the neighborhood, as well as Biscayne Bay and our Miami beaches. Trash eventually makes its way from city centers like Wynwood to our waterways, harming marine life and water quality. 

Meet at 6 pm at The Wynwood Yard. Bring a canned good (or a few) to trade in for a cocktail from Simple Vodka. Grab your special reusable cup, trash bags, gloves, pickers, and directions, and we'll make our way through the neighborhood. First stop, Veza Sur Brewing Co for a frosty "Chopp" (details below). We'll grab food along the way at a new eatery in town... details to be confirmed soon! End at the Bar at the Yard with more refreshments and live music, TBD.

Cost is only $20 to participate, and guests will receive an awesome Klean Kanteen reusable cup that will be filled along the way by participating partners! (It will also get you a quarter back on every beer purchased The Wynwood Yard when you bring your cups!) Proceeds raised go to Debris Free Oceans and Miami Waterkeeper. Purchase tickets in advance here.

What is a CHOPP? Vez Sur essentially developed their "own version of the super popular Chopp [shoh-pee] in Brazil. It is essentially an ice-cold and crisp Lager with a refreshing foam (thick and creamy Cappuccino-like) that you can drink through. So it is perfect for a hot Miami day, super refreshing and easy to drink. The quality of the foam is the result of running the crisp Lager through the serving lines at close to freezing temperature and higher pressure than you normally would. The serving faucet also plays a role. But the best part of Chopp [shoh-pee] is that the beer will keep coming until you signal stop by placing your coaster on top of your glass. You will never have to worry about that 2nd beer you would love to have. Before you know it, it will be on its way..."

The Wynwood Yard will be continuing with monthly community clean ups in the neighborhood throughout the year, teaming up with local non-profits and community partners.

Our first "unofficial" community clean up was on June 24th with WeCannTeen Leadership, Culture & Service Learning Tours and in partnership with Dr Smood, who graciously provided refreshments for the 50 participants along their way. Thank you also to Radiate Miami and dellafor end-of-the-road sips and bites.

Our first "official" clean up was a pub crawl pick up, and we partnered with Boxelder Craft Beer MarketWynwood Brewing CompanyCoyo Tacoand Saltwater Brewery. You can check out photos here: https://www.facebook.com/pg/thewynwoodyard/photos/?tab=album&album_id=1928349797488558

Each cleanup will take place at a different time of day, featuring unique non-profit partners, and a different "theme." At each one, participants will gather and walk the neighborhoods along pre-arranged routes to help make Wynwood a cleaner place. Proceeds of participant donations will go toward partnering non-profit organizations.

Bags and gloves will be provided.

Complimentary snacks and refreshments will be provided along the way and after the cleanup, depending on that month's partners.
