Jupiter Brewfest LogoJupiter Brewfest Jan 27- 28
The sixth annual edition happens January 28th.This is the best beer festival in South Florida by far. The size is limited and the beer selection is great. On Friday night, the 27th, the Field of Beers will occur with 16 stations each with a beer / brewer and food / chef paired together. Limited to 375 people this one never disappoints. Watch the video from last year HERE. There are local hotels to stay at then drive back the next day. Information and tickets located at the Festival Webpage.

From Larry...

 Happy New Year to everyone. This year will be better than ever for craft beer. More and different events and many new beers. The year kicks off with the Jupiter festival mentioned above. Be sure to watch the Field of Beers video; it shows some of the fun at the event and I am in it near the start!

Good beer has come a long way, here in South Florida, and there is plenty left to do. Until there is a good beer bar in every neighborhood, my mission remains the same. Spread the word, educate, talk about and drink craft beer. The emphasis is now moving to craft beer and food events; pairing different styles of beer with foods that go well with them. These events are happening all over our area and are great fun. You can rely on this monthly "Beer Blast" to keep you informed.
