NORTH MIAMI, FLA. (WSVN) - One of South Florida’s premier beer festivals brought local residents together while raising funds for students at Florida International University.

The annual North Miami BrewFest, held Saturday on the lawn of the North Miami Museum of Contemporary Art, featured over 200 different craft beers from local breweries.

It also offered a wide array of gourmet bites, like slow-roasted tenderloin, barbecue brisket and empanadas from vendors across South Florida.
