MIA Beer Founder Piero Rodriguez Killed In Car Crash

imageSome awful news coming from the Miami Herald:

A well-known brewer in Miami’s craft beer scene was killed in a car crash over the weekend.

Piero Rodriguez, one of MIA Beer Company’s founding brewers, was killed in an accident early Sunday, owner Eddie Leon confirmed. He was 34.

“We are completely devastated,” Leon said.

Leon said Rodriguez worked a late shift at the bar Saturday night to make extra money and his last sentiment before leaving was that he couldn’t wait to see his 9-year-old son, Rebel, on Father’s Day. Leon said Doral police told Rodriguez’s family that he lost control of his car on NW 33rd Street at the tight curve in the 8900 block, just minutes down the street from the brewery. He struck a light pole, wasn’t wearing his seat belt and was ejected, Leon said.

“He was telling everybody how excited he was to see his son,” Leon said. “It’s a sudden loss that we’re all having a hard time coming to terms with.”
