Florida’s inaugural Hard Seltzer Fest coming to 3 Daughters Brewing in the Burg

A mixed drink, a bottle of Tito's Vodka, and a can of 3 Daughters Brewing's Florida Hard Seltzer

Spiked seltzer is the drink of the summer and we will die on this hill. It’s light. It’s refreshing. It’s delicious. It’s what Floridians need for a good party. 3 Daughters Brewing gets it, that’s why they’re throwing Florida’s inaugural Hard Seltzer Fest.

The super fizzy and fun event takes place on July 20 at their brewery in the Warehouse Arts District. But this isn’t just about popping hard seltzer tabs, this event will feature a seltzer mixology competition with 10 local bars and Tito’s Handmade Vodka. Basically, be ready to treat yourself.

Local bartenders whipping up seltzer cocktails

Bartenders from Park & Rec, Red Mesa Cantina, and Jamminz will be in the competition. More are set to be announced in the coming weeks.

Patrons will enjoy live music throughout the event because it’s St. Pete and we don’t do anything without a little live music. Plus, five Burg restaurants will be serving up special dishes to pair with the seltzer cocktails.
