It’s not Labor Day weekend in the Florida Keys without Key West BrewFest. The beer-lover’s paradise (in paradise) features tastings from craft breweries and international brands, brunch, lunch, and dinner pairings, pool parties, after parties, and exceptional live music.
Set your calendar for the last hoorah of summer planned for Sept. 2 through Sept. 6. The main event is the signature tasting festival, which takes place Saturday, Sept. 4 from 5 - 8 p.m. on South Beach, in front of the Southernmost Beach Café at 1405 Duval St. It features unlimited tastes of beer from nearly 100 different breweries from around the world, including Belgian ales, German hefeweizens, Kona porters, and American ambers. Local favorites like the Florida Keys Brewing Co. and the Florida Beer Company will also be serving up their hardy concoctions.
Tickets are $40 in advance. VIP access gets you early entrance as well as a BrewFest T-shirt and passed appetizers. While the tasting event will be the weekend’s highlight, it doesn’t even tap the surface of BrewFest - there’s plenty more planned for the long weekend.
For a complete list of times and events, stay up to date with the Key West BrewFest schedule of events - which is being added to daily!
Parties aside, make sure to get tickets for at least one of the beer pairings over the long weekend. Some of the island’s best restaurants and chefs are teaming up to create specialty menus to compliment the festival’s featured beers.
