New Times Beerfest 2013: Winning Beers, Good Times (Pictures)

On Saturday evening, hundreds of beer lovers in South Florida came together in Esplanade Park to sample the finest beers, enjoy great live music and have a great time at New Times' Beerfest. Even the weather cooperated. Mother Nature is clearly a beer lover, because the evening was cool and clear -- perfect for hanging out and having a second glass of your favorite brew.



Speaking of brew, each partygoer received a pencil and scorecard in their beer tasting glass so they could take notes on which beers were best. We too got in on the action, with some New Times writers judging the beers in several different categories.
