MIA Beer Co. Mourns Death of Brewer Piero Rodriguez

MIA Beer Co. in Doral, Florida, is mourning the loss of brewer Piero Rodriguez, who they call an “irreplaceable member” of their community and brewery. Rodriguez was killed in a car accident over the weekend.

We have all been very blessed to know Piero,” the brewery writes on Facebook. “He was a loving person and free spirit that always made the best of every moment with his infectious smile and positive attitude.”

There will never be another. We’ll never forget that smile, that energy.

As the brewery and community work to find strength in this time of sorrow, MIA will remain closed. Their focus will be to find a way to honor and celebrate Piero’s life and set up a fund to help his son who has been left without a father.

This tragedy is a stark reminder that life is fragile, precious and that our community – no community – is immune to the perils of life. On behalf of CraftBeer.com and the Brewers Association, we’d like to send sincere condolences to Piero’s family, friends and the craft brewing community for which he touched.

Please keep MIA Beer Co. in your thoughts and follow their Facebook for an update on how to help.
