Ever imagine what the beer equivalent to Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory would be? Well there's no need to stretch your brain too much since odds are it would probably look a lot like the Coastline Festival this November 10 at the Cruzan Amphitheatre in West Palm Beach.
The festival is being organized by Live Nation and Ledge Entertainment, two of the nation's leading live entertainment companies. The festival will feature a Beer-copia with a "Craft Beer Cove" featuring over 25 brewers. It's not simply a beer festival, but one that showcases food, music and art as well, each facet designed to compliment the other. A Food Trucktopia and an Isle of Art will feature a lineup of Mediterranean to Vegetarian and Argentinean cuisine and local art.
