Beerfest Brewmaster Tickets: Exclusive Beers Announced

On October 25, the Fort Lauderdale's

Esplanade Park

will turn into Beertown USA when

New Times' Beerfest

comes to town. From 7 to 10 p.m., brew fans will be immersed in beer culture with live music and more than 100 different beers to sample.

New for this year is the limited-edition Brewmaster ticket that allows entry into the festival at 6 p.m. for one extra hour of enjoyment. Brewmasters also get some pretty sweet perks that general-admission ticket holders don't have access to.

Brewmasters will also be able to watch the homebrewers' competition, which features South Florida's best homebrewers in a head-to-head battle for ultimate supremacy. The winner of the competition will spend the day with Jonathan Wakefield of the soon-to-open J. Wakefield Brewing Co. in Miami. Brewmaster ticket holders will also get to sample these beers from 6 to 7 p.m., with each homebrewer having a 20-minute spotlight on his beers.

In addition, Brewmasters (and the lucky people who snagged sold-out VIP tickets) will be able to sample some exclusive beers, poured only from 6 to 7 p.m. So far, the beers showcased include:

  • Boulevard Brewing Co.- Love Child
  • Saltwater Brewery- Pumpkin
  • Stone Brewing- Xocoveza Mocha Stout or Stochasticity Hibiscusicity Belgian Ale
  • Founders Brewing- Rubeaus
  • Funky Buddha Brewery- No Crust

Brewmaster tickets cost only $45 and can be purchased at ticketfly.com. But hurry, because these special tickets are available only for a limited time.
