Other EDITION hotels around the world have partnered with local breweries to create a custom beer to represent the hotel, and now the tradition continues in Miami Beach with Iguanita. Meaning iguana in Spanish, Iguanita pays homage to South Florida’s diverse roots and tropical wildlife. The Iguanita bottle is also a nod to The Miami Beach EDITION’s tropical locale with the design featuring a sunset color scheme and a sunbathing iguana surrounded by palm trees.
Brewed by Biscayne Bay Brewing Company, a 100% independent craft brewery headquartered in Doral, Florida, with a flagship taproom set to open inside the Old Post Office building in Downtown Miami later this year, Iguanita is a crisp and easy drinking lager. The brew blends classic German flavor with light fruity and floral notes from Hallertaur hops to create a bright golden color and a sessionable taste.
Iguanita can only be found at The Miami Beach EDITION at all the hotel’s outlets by the bottle at Matador Bar, Matador Room, Tropicale, Basement Miami, in guest room mini bars, and at Market at EDITION, where it can also be found on tap.
Iguanita is the latest to join a growing list of hotels with custom spirits, along with the likes of the Abu Dhabi EDITION, Barcelona EDITION, both of which have a craft beer, and The Norman Tel Aviv who recently released their first private label Rosé in collaboration with Amphorae winemakers.
Set on a unique site on 29th Street and Collins Avenue, The Miami Beach EDITION by Ian Schrager in partnership with Marriott International is its own private enclave right on the beach, uniting great design and innovation with personal, friendly, modern service as well as outstanding, one-of-a-kind dining and entertainment offerings “all under one roof.” The Miami Beach EDITION features 294 individually designed guest rooms and suites, including 28 private bungalows—some with two stories—and a spectacular rooftop penthouse; 26 limited edition one-of-a-kind residences designed by John Pawson; culinary concepts overseen by Michelin-starred chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten, including Matador Room, a restaurant that offers his distinctive, modern interpretation of Latin cuisine influenced by Spanish, Caribbean and South American flavors and Market, a gourmet marketplace with a variety of food and beverages for dining in or on the go; the only indoor ground floor Lobby bar in Miami Beach with a direct view of the ocean; Basement Miami, a full floor entertainment area complete with a bowling alley, ice-skating rink and nightclub, all with a state-of-the-art sound system, as well as dramatic lighting and projection effects created by world-renowned lighting designer Patrick Woodroffe; two outdoor pools with outdoor bars, personal cabanas and lounge areas; a sandbox lounge area; 70,000 square feet of beachfront and an 1,800 square foot, 24-hour state-of-the-art high performance fitness center and spa.
