Where else but Key West can someone raise money for a local Rotary Club’s scholarship program by drinking beer, eating gourmet food and enjoying pool parties?
The foamy fun starts Thursday, Sept. 1 with an afternoon pool party at The Marker Resort and an evening kickoff party at The Perry Hotel & Marina.
Saturday is Key West BrewFest’s signature tasting extravaganza at Key West’s South Beach. The VIP hours take place from 3 to 5 p.m. for $100 per person, and the main event takes place from 5 to 8 p.m. for $40 per person.
A giant tent fills the beach area and hundreds of tasting booths fill the tent with representatives pulling taps and filling signature Brewfest tasting glasses.
Then on Sunday, Sept. 4, Kimpton’s Winslow Bungalows hosts a pool party. The Perry Hotel & Marina hosts a beer-pairing dinner with Sailfish Brewing and the hit band Glass Cats performs live on the beach at Southernmost Beach Resort.
The holiday weekend wraps up Monday evening with a bingo fundraiser at the Green Parrot Bar.
