The Mana Wynwood in Miami, Florida, is calling for all craft beer lovers to unite! This event is on Saturday, August 26, from 2:00 pm to 7:00 pm. Ticket holders, who must be at least 21 years old, will have the opportunity to bond over craft beverages. These beverages are from breweries across the nation.
From Clown Shoes in Ipswitch, Massachusetts, to Desthil Brewery in Illinois, participants will get to taste the delicious efforts of more than 150 breweries and cideries over the course of the event. It’s always good to pace yourself when it comes to marathon drinking. Therefore, make sure you stay hydrated. In addition, there will be plenty of food available from award-winning food trucks. This will help you continue on your road to becoming a true craft beer connoisseur. The event also features live music and entertainment. The festival will take place rain or shine, so make sure you have a poncho ready in case Mother Nature intervenes.
A portion of each ticket sale will be donated to Knowledge of Careers. An organization that aims to “put students on the path towards economic security and social influence by giving them the core skills and hands-on experience they need to become leaders in their communities and in the professions of their choosing.”
