How About Some Fest With That Beer? (How many souvenir cups can you handle?)

You Won't Go Thirsty at these Florida Beerfests:
Go, Baby, Go:  It's a Beertrip!

Hey, Heads Up (Beer Heads, that is). You know that I'm always on the lookout for the next Florida Beerfest (which usually means BEERTRIP, baby). Time to get your suds on! After a bit of a summer break, Beerfest Season 2014 is revving up again.  So, put on your favorite beer shirt, fill up the gas tank, and make a weekend out of one of these (or more than one, if you can handle all that partying). I've been to some of these -- and want to go back!  See the links for hours, venues, special events, VIP/early check-in options, and more, and check out their social media feeds, too. Sorry, I can't do anything about event conflicts! And, hey, homebrewers: there are some homebrew competitions that are part of these fests, too! This list oughtta get your hoppy taste buds salivating through October. Still waiting for some info on a few more, so this isn't done yet, and there are more fests in November, too!  For now, check 'em out and put 'em on your beer calendars (times are local; info subject to change):
