PROOF BREWING CO. HOSTS 5th ANNUAL FLORIDA TAP INVITATIONAL,
SEPTEMBER 29/30


Tallahassee, FL:  Craft beer aficionados constantly thirst for new beers to add to their never-ending lists of unique beers and ongoing quests to find elusive, limited, rare, and maybe never-seen-before, brews. On the other side, brewers continue to develop new recipes and creatively combine ingredients as they produce different types and styles of beers. In what may be a dream scenario for both, the 5th Annual Florida Tap Invitational, hosted by Proof Brewing Co., returns on September 29 and 30. 




The beerfest takes place over two days: Friday night and Saturday afternoon. For the Table Hospitality hosts the Friday night kickoff event, featuring beer and food pairings, music and carnival games in the College Town District on Madison Street, near Madison Social. On Saturday afternoon, the area surrounding Proof Brewing will be transformed into a beerfest with over 40 Florida breweries sampling more than 100 rare, limited release and/or new beers.  The majority of breweries will have reps and/or owners behind the taps. "We're not the typical beerfest where [guests] will see cores and maybe one specialty," says Bryan Smith, Proof Brewing Sales & Events Director. "The beers are even bigger and crazier" than in years past, he adds. Further, adding to the mystique, many of the breweries will pour beers that have not been tapped before, some of which still do not have names. Most of the breweries will offer two beers, with a few pouring three beers. The beerfest is about as unique as the beers that will be sampled, as the fest requires participating breweries to bring limited, rare and/or tap-room type beers. Currently, 47 Florida breweries are expected to attend, an increase from last year's 39. While the tap list is has not yet been finalized, a preliminary review reveals beers such as Imperial IPAs, Imperial Stouts, Berliner Weisses, Barrel-Aged Stouts, IPA, Lagers, Goses, and more.   

General Admission tickets ($55) include admission to the Friday night party and 12 pairing/activity tickets, along with unlimited beer samplings at the Saturday beerfest (1pm entry). The VIP ticket option ($100) includes the General Admission to both events, plus a one-hour early entry to the Saturday beerfest (12pm), one plate of food on Saturday, and one 750 mL bottle of Royal Blood Line Imperial Stout, which will be released on Saturday. Although the event is expected to sell out during the week, limited tickets are still available. To purchase tickets and view the brewery list click here; and check out the tap list.

Proof Brewing Co. is located at 644 McDonnell Drive, Tallahassee. Madison Social is located at 705 S. Woodward Avenue, at the corner of Woodward and Madison Street. The venues are within walking distance.
