Local Roots pairs the best in food and brews at their Taste of Florida feast


Though culinary events of this caliber often have prohibitive price tags, this Florida-centric feast, hosted by co-op Local Roots, won't necessarily break the bank. Plus, you'll get to try tastings from some of the best area restaurants that focus on local ingredients and historic Floridian cuisine. And if that's not enough to get your palate moist, take note that each tasting is paired with beer from specific Florida brewers. Some of the pairings announced include the Strand with Red Cypress, K Restaurant with Cigar City, the Smiling Bison with Playalinda and Swine & Sons with Cask & Larder. Top it all off with live music and the lovely surroundings of East End Market and you've got close to a perfect date night for your favorite foodie or the beer nut in your life.
