January 23 through 29 is South Florida Beer Week, a sudsy beerfest during which local haunts Funky Buddha, Tap 42, World of Beer, and Laser Wolf sponsor tap takeovers to celebrate local brews. The kickoff is a Monday night pig roast at Lou's Beer Garden. What about bacon?
I'm most excited for this breakfast beer, a porter created by the Funky Buddha guys a year ago, dubbed Wide Awake It's Morning, a concoction of coffee, maple, smoked malt, and yes, bacon. It's not
yet available at the brewery, but it'll be ready in time for the fest.
Don't miss the weekend events up in Jupiter either. On Friday night, there's a Field of Beer at Roger Dean Stadium and the Craft Brewers Festival and the After-Fest on Saturday. Click links to purchase tickets.
