2010 Jupiter Craft Brewers Festival and Field Of Beers

Field Of Beers and the Jupiter Craft Brewers Festival will be held this weekend January 29th and 30th at Roger Dean Stadium. This is the premier beer festival in South Florida and you don't want to miss out. The capacity is limited on both days so you will need to get tickets online or get there early to get a ticket at the door.

The Field Of Beers is a beer and food pairing held for only a limited group of 300 people on Friday night from 6:00pm - 9:00pm. The food will be paired with selections from breweries that have been invited to participate in the Field Of Beers event. Some of the breweries even brewed beer specially for this event so you may never get to try these beers again. The food is prepared by some of the top chefs in Palm Beach led by Chef John Carlino. The event is not sold out, as of yet, so buy tickets quickly by clicking here. Tickets will run you $77. Here is the menu for the event.

The Jupiter Craft Brewers Festival will be held this Saturday from 1:00pm-5:30pm. One of the great things about this festival is that the capacity is limited to only 3200 people. 1600 tickets are sold online and 1600 are sold at the gate the day of. The online tickets are sold out so you will need to get there early to stand in line to get your ticket. Tickets will be $30. I'm sure this doesn't need to be said but the event is only 21 plus so be sure to bring your ID or you'll be sitting in the car while your friends have the time of their lives. You will also find live music, a best dressed monk contest and a silent disco. Food will also be available for you to purchase inside so you can soften the blow from all this great beer. Here are the breweries you will find there Saturday.
