Melbourne, FL – March 29, 2015 – I never miss a change to get outside and enjoy all the outdoor recreation opportunities the Space Coast has to offer. So when I learned about the Brewmaster’s Invitational, I said to myself, what could not be any better – getting outdoors and drinking beer.
Since I attended the New Smyrna Marina Coastal Art and Craft Beer Festival, I have been waiting for the Space Coast to put on such event. Click HERE for my New Smyrna article.
Well my wishes have been granted. On April 4th, next weekend, the Brewmaster’s Invitational at will come to Port Canaveral at the Port Canaveral Exploration Tower. Have you seen the lineup of craft brews? Wow, this will be a great beer fest! Click HERE to see the list or see my slide show.
According to the event organizers, “A brand new brew festival will launch from Port Canaveral to explore craft beer on April 4 with gates opening for VIP ticket holders at noon and General Admission ticket holders at 1:00 pm. The Brewmaster’s Invitational will offer beer tastings and food paring, beer classes, beer inspired recipes and art, as well as a lineup of local music. The first time event will feature up to 50 breweries and 150 plus craft beers plus several of the area’s top restaurants, located next to the Port’s Exploration Tower. A lineup of local musicians and artists will set the mood as beer lovers taste some of the latest local, national and international beers made by breweries from around the world. “This is a great kickoff to spring, and a fun way to encourage event attendees to explore new beer,” said Daniel Todd of 9 Mile Media, which produces the festival in partnership with Fishlips Waterfront Bar & Grill.
Only ticket holders may participate in the event. General Admission tickets are $25 in advance or $30 at the gate and include unlimited beer tastings from 1:00pm – 4:30pm. VIP tickets are $40 in advance or $50 at the gate and include unlimited beer tastings from 12:00pm – 4:30pm, entry into the Brewmaster’s VIP tent plus one ticket to the Brewmaster’s VIP party. Tickets are on sale now at Ticketmaster.com Ticketweb.com and BrewmastersInvitational.com.
They can also be purchased at Fishlips Waterfront Bar & Grill in Port Canaveral, 9 Mile Media in Cocoa Beach and the Cocoa Beach Regional Chamber of Commerce on Merritt Island. Parking is available on site, but for those who’d rather not drive, The Space Coast Area Transit offers public transportation to and from certain areas. For schedule information call the ride line at (321) 633-1878 or log onto ridescat.com. Live art demonstrations will produce unique items that will be donated to the event’s silent auction. All proceeds will go to a local non-profit. Designated Driver wrist bands will be available for purchase the day of the event at the entry gates.”
If this festival is anything like the New Smyrna Festival, it will be a really big hit. I have marked my calendar. I will be there. Will you? See you there.
Until next time, be safe in the sun and have a great day in the great outdoors.
