Attendees may also choose to enjoy the VIP Experience in the VIP lounge, an area where guests will have access to the premium Beerfest adventure, including unlimited liquor samples, food samples from some of Fort Lauderdale’s best restaurants, unique craft beers available only in VIP, premium stage views, and giveaways.
