For the 14th-Annual New Times Beerfest, folks over here have been pulling together what's on tap for this year's event on November 12 from 7 to 11 p.m. in Esplanade Park, proceeds from which will benefit the Humane Society of Broward County.

Among my favorites are Shiner Blonde and Oktoberfest, Brooklyn Lager, a variety from Shipyard, and of course the lowly Budweiser (that's so maligned by commenters on this blog). The event

will also feature cans from Narragansett and PBR as well as pours from Asahi, Chang, and Tiger for those nostalgic for their last trip to Asia.

Restaurants adding to the mix are the soon-to-open Tap 42 and Boca Biergarten as well as America's Backyard

Check back with us after Sunday, when I'm sitting down with Garrett Oliver, brewmaster for Brooklyn Brewery and editor for The Oxford Companion to Beer, to talk suds and fest drinking strategies, among other things.

In the meantime, you can purchase tickets for Beerfest for $30 ahead of time for regular admission or $70 for VIP tickets here

Keep New Times Broward-Palm Beach Free... Since we started New Times Broward-Palm Beach, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of South Florida, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering South Florida with no paywalls.
