South Florida Beer Week highlights local craft beer

South Florida Beer Week logo 2014South Florida Beer Week officially kicks off Saturday, and like other weeks in the state that highlight a region’s craft beer community, it’s getting bigger.

Beer dinners, pub crawls, beer releases, tap takeovers and other brew-centric events fill the calendar.

Here’s some of the highlights:

  • The folks from the Tampa’s Brew Bus Brewing will kick off their new South Florida service Saturday with a tour that will stop at Due South Brewing, Brewzzi Boca and Funky Buddha Brewery. The trip includes a pint and a private tour at each brewery, light appetizers at Brewzzi and samples of Brew Bus beer along the way. Tickets are $60 and available here.
  • The inaugural South Florida Beer Week Disc Golf Classic will be Sunday at Easterlin Park in Oakland Park. Sponsored by Cigar City Brewing and Funky Buddha Brewery, the event includes a doubles competition, prizes, goodies and an after-party at Funky Buddha. The entry fee is $20, and proceeds will go toward the Florida Brewers Guild, a nonprofit organization that advocates for Florida’s craft breweries. Click here to enter.
  • The eighth annual Jupiter Craft Brewers Festival will be Saturday, Jan. 25, at Roger Dean Stadium in Jupiter. Though I’ve yet to attend this festival, folks I’ve talked to say it’s one of the best in Florida. Dozens of brewers, many from Florida, will pour samples of more than 100 craft beers from 1 to 5 p.m. Click here for more information.
  • An honorable mention goes to the sixth annual Field of Beers Festival, a food-and-beer pairing event taking place Friday at Roger Dean Stadium. Honorable because it is sold out.
