3rd Annual Treasure Coast Beer Fest

3rd Annual Treasure Coast Beerfest

Welcome to the Beerfest!  Do you like beer?  Would you like to know more about beer?  150 beers, with 28 on tap gave us the opportunity to taste and learn.  A tiny, 2 oz. beer mug, provided as many tastes as we wanted.  Light, dark, fruity, and hoppy, we were able to sample them all.  Vendors were happy to talk about their wares, and some offered menus with descriptions. Popcorn and pretzel necklaces were on sale for $1 and $2.  Shindig Irish Pub gave away free bread and butter pudding.  Delicious!  Everyone had a good time, and all for a great cause!  Local charities such as Dogs and Cats Forever, Michael's Message, and the Alzheimer's Memory Walk benefitted.  Two fun facts: there are 19 types of Guinness.  George Washington had his own brew house.  All this for $25 in advance and $30 at the gate.  The beerfest was held in the parking garage on Orange Avenue, from 1 pm until 6pm.  Tickets can be bought at various locations around Fort Pierce, including JoJo's.
