We hope the local beer being poured around South Florida yesterday, cured your case of the Mondays. We enjoyed sharing a few beers with the fine beer folks of South Florida and are getting ready for another delicious night.
So what's on the agenda? We've got some awesome beers being poured from Palm Beach County down to Miami Dade.
World of Beer Dadeland is showing some love to St. Pete with a Green Bench Spotlight, pouring up West Coast (Florida) brews
Oh yeah, it's here. We know you've been waiting and now it's time to celebrate Florida's beer scene with, you guessed it, BEER! We're confident you may have already gotten a taste over the weekend at Mariana Trench Day or one of the many of the specials out there in honor of #SFBW2017 but that was just a warm up. It's now time for us to get into the meat of the week.
So what's planned for tonight? Well we've got a bunch on the docket. Firstly, if you haven't checked out our calendar of events on this page yet, please do. We also have a fancy one-page guide for the week to help you map out your path.
So let's jump right into it.... To kick the week off in Broward we've got a Local Brewery Spotlight at The Original Fat Cats in Fort Lauderdale starting at Happy Hour (5pm) where a handful of brewery reps will be there to share some beers with you. Wynwood will also be offering up a wide variety of beers at Riverside Market South, so why not hit both? Are you in the biz? If so, Bar Red Beard has got their industry night tonight with some discounts for those of you who are used to being on the other side of the tap (no worries if you're not in the industry, you're welcome too). Want to flex that brain muscle tonight, while challenging your liver? Funky Buddha has their live trivia at 7pm.
If you're a little further North and feeling a little dirty, Clean up at The Blind Monk who will be hosting a Beer Soap Workshop. Saltwater Brewery will be hosting their In the Biz night too.
For you Miami-Daders, Cigar City is hosting a Tap Takeover at The Butcher Shop which will surely be filled with some amazing beers and meaty goodness.
If you're up in the Treasure Coast, we've got something for you too. 121 Tapas on the Water will be hosting a Holy Mackerel Beer Dinner at 6pm. There's still room.
Don't forget to check out the long list of week-long festivities which may be going on in your backyard too. There's a lot to do and a lot of beer to drink so please stay safe and drink responsibly.
We hope to see you out this week toasting Florida's Craft Beer Scene!
SFBW 2016 was incredible! We truly hope that you enjoyed every minute of it as much as we did. Last year we said that we knew 2016 would be bigger and better, and it definitely was and couldn't have happened without all your help and support.
South Florida Beer Week is very special and will continue to grow as the craft beer culture and community continues to expand in Florida. We ask that you continue to support these amazing local businesses all year long.
Now, here is an epic video that pretty much sums up all the fun we had, enjoy!
