Hard Seltzer Fest returns to St. Petersburg this spring

Spiked seltzer was the drink of the summer (which is basically endless in St. Pete) in 2019. Seriously, there was nearly a worldwide shortage of White Claw. It’s light, refreshing, and delicious — and it’s what Floridians need for a good backyard cookout. 3 Daughters Brewing gets it, that’s why they’re throwing the second annual Florida Hard Seltzer Fest.

The super fizzy and fun event takes place on April 25 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.

Bartenders from all over the ‘Burg will compete for Hard Seltzer cocktail supremacy. The competition will feature vodka from St. Petersburg Distillery, and guests will judge the bartenders in 3 Daughter’s cocktail competition, which has only one rule: include Florida Hard Seltzer and St. Pete Vodka in the drink.

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, multiple ‘Burg restaurants will be serving up special dishes to pair with the seltzer cocktails.
