Lots of Beer Events This Week

This week seems to be a big week for beer events. These events are going to be hard to choose from as they all are pretty excellent, showcasing beers you may not find again for a while. You can always check out our Beer Events calendar for information on beer events all over South Florida.

Tuesday
The Boca Beer Lovers Meetup- Funky Buddah in Boca Raton
The Boca Beer Lovers events are organized every month by Jonathan from Case & Keg. The meetups are known to be lots of fun. They attract a great group of beer lovers who like to get together to enjoy some tasty beers and food. They will be tasting 6-8 of the Buddha' finest. Their current keg selection includes Gudden Draak, Nostradamus, and Prior 8, to name a few. You'll get a sampling of each for only $10. The meet up starts at 7:00pm. You can find more info on this meetup and future ones by joining the meetup group by clicking here.

Wednesday
BJCP Style Guideline Tasting- Abraxas in South Beach
This bi-weekly Beer-Judging-Certification-Program-style tasting is held at Abraxas and is hosted by Chris from Fresh Beer Inc. This installment is going to feature dark lagers and bocks. These tastings always feature some of the best beers in each style. Chris usually brings along a few other treats that you won't find anywhere else too. The tasting only costs $15 and gets you eight 3oz samplings of each featured beer. Another plus: the beer style showcased during the tasting is usually on sale for the rest of the night. The event starts at 8pm. You can find out more info about this event and become part of the South Florida Beer Drinkers meetup group by going here.

Thursday
Beer tasting- Sunset Tavern in South Miami
This beer tasting will be hosted by the bar itself, Sunset Tavern, and is the first of many they hope to have. For just $20, you'll get to sample 20 beers from around the world and munch on their tasty wings. The tasting starts at 7pm. Stone Imperial Russian Stout will be their featured beer and you'll be treated to 1/2 off domestic drafts at the conclusion of the event. Sign up via Pay Pal at www.delilane.com and receive a free draft at the end of the tasting for signing up in advance. You can also call 305.665.0606 or email Patty at pksyankees@aol.com.

Friday
Dogfish Head Brewery Tasting Weekend- Abraxas in South Beach
This is one of two great Dogfish Head events happening this weekend in South Florida. This event will take place at Abraxas starting on Friday and will continue all weekend long (or until they run out of beer). They will be featuring some of Dogfish Head's best and most difficult beers to find. On draft, they will have Burton Baton (if you missed this at the Abbey before you don't want to miss it again), Palo Santo and 90 Minute IPA. Along with these excellent beers, they will also have lots of other great bottled beer from Dogfish Head like their 120 Minute, 60 Minute, Festina Peche, Raison D'etre, Indian Brown, World Wide Stout, and Red and White. Remember, all the Dogfish Head beers will be on special all weekend long.

Dogfish Head Beer Tasting - BX Beer Depot in Lake Worth
The other Dogfish Head tasting is going to be quite an event as well. They will be featuring more of the hard-to-get DFH beers on draft. They will have Palo Santo, Midas Touch, Burton Baton, Chicory Stout, and Indian Brown. The event goes from 6pm-10pm and will run you about $6 for a 9oz pour of these unique kegs. You'll want to get there early, as the first 10 people will receive a free Dogfish Head snifter glass.
