UPCOMING EVENT: Central Florida Top Brewer Festival!

I have some big news! Mark your calendars, people!

Next month, on Saturday, May 19th, is the Central Florida Top Brewer Festival!

Local breweries will be competing to win the best beer with randomly selected ingredients that must be incorporated into their brew. That’s right. Someone has the chance to brew a delicious beer with popular flavors, such as chocolate and peanut butter, while some are unfortunately stuck with a combination of jalapeños and marshmallow Peeps. This cut-throat, Top Chef-style competition is one you are not going to want to miss!

A list of participating local breweries can be found here.

In addition to these potentially award winning or nightmarish beers, breweries will be bringing some of their most popular brews to the festival. (Don’t worry, you won’t be stuck drinking marshmallow-oregano beers all day.)

Early bird tickets have ended as of today, but don’t freak out. I have a discount code to get you $5 off your ticket price!

Tickets are $35 and the festival is from 1 to 5 PM, rain or shine. Don’t make plans this Saturday afternoon, you are NOT going to want to miss out on this!  You can purchase tickets by clicking here.

I was fortunate enough to watch the draft, where all the participating breweries randomly drew their ingredients. Each brewery had to draw a hop, a malt, and two miscellaneous ingredients that they must incorporate in their beer.

Check out some of the photos below, and get a sneak peek at the ingredients some of the breweries have to use in the competition!
