It's Getting Hot Around Here .. June/July Events

Palm Beach Summer Beer Fest, July 23
WHEW! Summer officially started only a few days ago, but temperatures are climbing, it's almost July already, and things are really heating up! Time to grab a cold Florida brew? Yeah. 

So, take a look at the Tap This Calendar Page for local beer tappings and such around North Florida, AND, check out the BeerSphere Page for beer fests and special events around Florida (both are constantly updated).  

Where? North Florida, Daytona, Space Coast, South Florida, and I even have an Orlando event listed right now. Here's a sampling of what your next road trip (or two) might look like. And, hey, like you haven't heard this before: get a room (so you don't have to drive back).
