Guests will be able to enjoy unlimited sampling of specialty beers from breweries stretching from Gulfport to Tarpon Springs and everywhere in between. The event runs from 1:30-5 pm and also includes food trucks, games, beer talk sponsored by the Florida Brewers Guild, and much more.
Early bird General Admission tickets are $30 ($40 at the door), and include unlimited sampling and a collective souvenir cup. Early bird VIP tickets are $65, which include a collectible cup, unlimited sampling, a VIP swag bag, and early entry at 12 pm.
Participating breweries include St. Pete favorites like 3 Daughters Brewing, Bayboro Brewing Co., Grand Central BrewHouse, and Pinellas Ale Works, among nearly a dozen more. Additionally, St. Petersburg locals will have a chance to try some stars from farther north in Pinellas County, such as Seventh Sun Brewing and Cueni Brewing Co. from Dunedin, Grindhaus Beer Lab and Southern Lights Brewing from Clearwater, and Unrefined Brewing and 5 Branches Brewing from Tarpon Springs.
