South Florida is making carbonated, locally brewed waves in its bar scene. And at the head of the current is an atypical craft beer distributing rep: Lauren Bowen.

 

Lauren Bowen sits beneath falling vines that decorate the patio awning at Sweet Nectar on Las Olas Boulevard – her blonde, pixie buzz cut and chunky black glasses remnants of her short fashion career. Her hands cup a honey jar filled with a golden liquid, but it wasn’t produced by bees. It was actually made by the company Bowen represents – Harpoon Brewery.
