The 16th-annual New Times “Original” Beerfest coming to Esplanade Park in downtown Fort Lauderdale on April 6 is still a little ways off. If you’re counting down the days with thirsty impatience, check out the “Warm Up” event at Crown Wine & Spirits from 7 to 9 p.m. Thursday. There will be some gourmet snacks on hand as well as more than 30 craft beers to be tasted, many of which will be featured at Beerfest and others you’ll get a taste of only at the “Warm Up.”
The cover is $10 and will also net you a chance to get half off your Beerfest tickets — an offer you’ll be able to get only if you attend the “Warm Up.” You will also take home a commemorative New Times pint glass to preserve your sudsy memories for years to come.
Crown Wine & Spirits is located at 1320 N. Federal Highway in Pompano Beach. Visit the crownwineandspirits.com/beer-tasting-events for all the details, and check out the Facebook events page.
