Palm Beach Craft Brew Fest BUY TICKETS HERE

Palm Beach County sees no shortage of truly stellar outdoor events throughout the year, so when the inaugural Palm Beach Craft Beer Festival wrapped in 2012, attendees knew they had experienced something extra special.  The day long festival delivers big on everyone’s (or at least everyone I know) favorite topics, good beer and live music.

Last year’s festival proved to organizer and unofficial king of West Palm, Rodney Mayo, that there is a prime audience in town thirsty for tasty brews, and that means this year’s event will be even bigger and better.  More tickets will be made available, more breweries pouring, and more massive smiles on all of your friends faces.

When it comes to the beer selection, keep your expectations high. The festival rounds up not only some of the best craft brews in the country, but local heroes like Funky Buddha and Due South will also be on hand dispensing their fine elixirs to the eager crowd. Prefer your own special blend? Enter your magic potion in the homebrew competition to see how it measures up. Are you of the particularly thirsty variety?  The VIP upgrade gets you a free shirt, plus a bonus beer tent complete with food and air conditioning.Two perfect components to keep you going all the way until 9pm.

In pure West Palm fashion, the day wouldn’t be complete without some standout local bands taking the stage to entertain the masses.  Spred the DubRaggy Monster, Gravel Kings, RunDownTown and more will be serving up some solid sounds to accompany your beer.  No shame in downing that double IPA with a smile. Lke last year, proceeds will be going to a variety of charities including the Surfrider Foundation.

Moral of the story: you get to drink heady brews and listen to local tunes with all your friends at an outside amphitheater and the money goes to charity. It couldn’t be more obvious. The Palm Beach Craft Beer Festival is back to prove they can put on an even better event than last year’s and we can’t wait to watch them do it.

The Palm Beach Craft Beer Festival is held at the Meyer Amhitheatre in West Palm Beach, Saturday June 22 from 3-9pm.  General admission tickets are $40, VIP are $80. for more information
