Grovetoberfest 2011

Miami will be getting another beerfest this October and this one looks to be doing it right.  Grovetoberfest will be taking place October 15th in Peacock Park in Coconut Grove.  The good people putting it together have been building quite the hype for it with free beer tastings around town of some of the varied styles they will be featuring at the fest.  Tony Albelo, organizer of Grovetoberfest, and I have spoken many times as he has been looking for input from local people in the beer community on how to make this the best beer fest in Miami.  He hopes to make Grovetoberfest as respected as the Jupiter Beerfest in the years to come.  The fest will be providing information sheets on all the beers as well as letting people vote on their favorite beers to win best of Grovetoberfest in three different categories.  There will be chefs there doing food and beer pairings as well as a homebrewers section showing you how to brew your own beer. Live music from The Spam Allstars and a few others will also be going on.

As a special treat for our readers Grovetoberfest has provided us with a code to get your tickets, with all fees included, for only $25.  Click here to buy your tickets and enter SFBB11 in the Discount Code section and you are good to go.

We will be keeping you up to date with what breweries will be attending as soon as more are confirmed but from what I've seen so far it won't be Corona, Bud, or Miller Light to give you a heads up.

  4. This was a major disappointment. We paid a substantial premium for VIP tickets and got almost nothing for the extra cash. The lines at the vendors were long (with no separate lines for VIP's. The food was mediocre at best. I definitely will not be returning.
