Old School Beerfest Tonight in Delray Beach, Local Brewers Featured

American Craft Beer Week in South Florida is not over until the fat lady sings, or at least until the beer taps run dry at the Old School Beefest in Delray Beach.

The pouring starts at 6 p.m. and goes until 10 in the Outdoor Pavilion at the Delray Beach Center for the Arts. If you haven't already gotten your tickets, general admission can be purchased at the gate for $40.

More than 50 beers and ciders will be available for pouring, including Florida brewers such as Cigar City, Inlet Brewing Company/Monk in the Trunk, Big Bear Brewing Company, local homebrewers Opus Ales from Hollywood, Florida Beer Company and Miami Brewing Company, who brews Big Rod Coconut Ale.

Going with a friend but care not for beer? No worries, there is a section for winos too courtesy of Gnarly Head Wines. Food and food trucks will be available as well.

Live music will be provided from Preservation, a rock and roll cover band, and The People Upstairs, a South Florida reggae band.

Opus Ales, which specializes in Latin American-flavored beers, will not be pouring their signature Sin Verguenza beer. Instead they are pouring Travieso, a spiced Belgian cactus pear saison--a tart and fruity wheat beer, and Whe Pa!, an American amber ale.

It's been a rough week of overindulgence with happy hours, tap takeovers and beer dinners, but stick it out for a little while longer. Save the best for last. Proceeds from Old School BeerFest will support the 2013-14 Free Friday Concerts at The Pavilion.
