It's hard to believe, but 2013 is fast becoming a memory. That's OK, because the new year will surely bring a host of new adventures, opportunities...and the third annual South Florida Beer Week.
The 2014 edition of the festival will return from January 18 - 25, bringing a week filled with tap takeovers, dinners, tastings, and parties to south Florida from Jupiter to the Florida Keys.
Ian Salzberg, Minister of Beer Communications (how's that for a cool title) at Brown Distributing Company, tells Clean Plate Charlie that he's looking forward to an expanded schedule of events.
Although the schedule of celebrations is not yet finalized, there are many new events, like the South Florida Brew Bus tour on January 18 from 11:00 a.m. - 3:30 p.m. that kicks off the week. Tickets for the Brew Bus are $60 and on sale now at eventbrite.com.
The beer-tastic week culminates at the Jupiter Craft Brewers Festival on Saturday, January 25 at Roger Dean Stadium, where from 1 - 5 p.m., you'll be able to sample the best small batch beers available.
A list of events is available at southfloridabeerweek.com, and Clean Plate Charlie will update you as more information is released.
