South Florida gets ready for great food, live music and unlimited beer tastings featuring over 150 Spring and Summer ales in the heart of Coconut Grove at Peacock Park on March 8, 2014.
Spring Beer Festival Sprung, will be a great way for beer enthusiasts to try local craft beers by local brewers like Funky Buddha, Wynwood Brewing, M.I.A, and Opus Ales. In addition to some out-of-state brewers like New Belgium, Founder’s, SweetWater, Green Flash, Sierra Nevada, Brooklyn Brewery, Kona, Magic Hat, Shiner, Shipyard, Harpoon, Blue Moon, many others will showcase their spring and summer offerings.
This craft beer festival is a great voice for small brewers that offer a richer taste on beer, more choices, and go hand in hand with great food. Some argue that Craft beer is healthier than wine; carrying more nutrients, range of antioxidants, and a rich source of silica; silica in the diet may help in countering osteoperosis.
