Event preview – Delray Beach Craft Beer Fest

Note: Bookmark this page. I am going to be continually updating this with information as I get it in.

Mostly because I am excited for the upcoming Delray Beach Craft Beer Fest, coming up on Friday, May 8th.

There are a lot, and I do mean a lot, of breweries from around the state that will be represented. Some of which I still haven’t tried yet, so I’m pretty excited about that. The Beer Fest web site has a nice rundown of the breweries that will be there. As for who is bringing what beers, that’s what I’m trying to find out for you. Here’s what I have found out so far:

  • BrewHub will be represented with offerings from Golf Beer Co. and KeyBilly.
  • Lagerhead Brewing will have:
    • Session IPA
    • Coffeepot Porter
    • Honey Blonde
    • Honey Blonde treated with jalapeno and basil.
  • Miami’s Descarga Brewing will be bringing:
    • Fuki Fuki (a mango saison with peat-smoked malts)
    • Saison Compeleta (hoppy honey saison)
    • Ducha de Oro (Belgian Golden Strong Ale)
  • Orange Blossom Brewing Co. will be with their standards (in pretty new cans, too!)
  • South Florida stalwart Funky Buddha will be there with:
  • Wild Oak, a new brewery in Palm Beach County that’s been generating a lot of buzz, is going to be there with Some awesome stuff:

    • Grape and Pillage is a 7.2% ABV American Wild Ale with white grapes, barrel aged in French Oak
    • Brett the Farm is a 6.5% ABV pale ale, 100% brewed with brettanomyces
    • Finally, there will be bottles of Dark Tranquility, an 8.3% wild stout aged in Rye Whiskey barrels
  • Tampa’s Coppertail Brewing will be there with their four core beers:
  • Islamorada Beer Co. will be arriving with some of their standards. Stand by, because there should be some fun stuff from them coming soon.
  • Holy Waters will also be there, bringing:
    • Session Pale Ale
    • ENVY Chocolate Malt Pale Ale
    • TKF (Tijuana Knife Fight), a spicy Mexican Celebration Porter
    • GREED Ameri-Koln Ale
    • Double English Brown
  • SaltWater Brewery, where I found out about this event, will be there with a few things:
    • Screamin’ Reels
    • South End
    • Vanilla Oak Dry Hopped South End
    • Tinc’d Out Turtle
    • Sea Cow w/ Randall
    • Guava Don’t Get Confused
    • Oh, and they are also going to have a pre-party at the brewery featuring kegs of Grapefruit Screamin’ Reels, Don’t Get Stung (Stinger and Don’t Get Confused Blend), Green Bench Brewery’s Wild Heart (Brett Pale Ale w/ Galaxy Hops), plus Funky Buddha’s More Moro Blood Orange IPA

Don’t worry; there’s a lot more than this to come. If you see me, swing by and say hi! Have fun!

Drink (lots of) Florida Craft,
