Win a Pair of Tickets to New Times Beerfest

Beer is near!

The 16th-annual New Times "Original" Beerfest is coming to Fort Lauderdale's Esplanade Park on Saturday, April 6, from 6 to 11 p.m., and the one question we have for you is:

Do you have your tickets?

Come on, dude, these puppies are selling fast, and you absolutely do not want to be the one guy staying home and watching a Two and a Half Men marathon while your friends are out there sampling more than 100 brews and listening to live music -- do you?

Yeah -- we thought not.

General-admission tickets cost only $30 in advance, and VIP tickets cost $75 for you high rollers who love special VIP tents, additional beer samplings, and preferred stage views for the concert. To purchase tickets, vist newtimesbeerfest.com.

Don't forget our all-new home-brew alley, where home brewers will allow their brew-babies to be judged by a panel of experts. Best of all? You get to try them!


If you are a home brewer and you want to participate in this year's Beerfest, shoot an email over to anthony.gordon@miaminewtimes.com to get more information on how you can be a part of this historic moment in beer history.

Want to win tickets? Clean Plate Charlie's got another pair of general-admission tickets to give away. Just comment on this blog and tell us your absolute favorite beer. Is it a Belgium made from monks? A local Florida craft? Or are you a PBR person? We want to know. We'll pick a winner on Friday. Be sure to register with a valid email address so we can contact you if you win the tickets.

See you at Beerfest!
