We’ve got Florida breweries from Sarasota to St. Cloud and Orlando to Ormond Beach coming to town, plus beers from all over the country, from coast to coast. Sample as much beer as you can drink from all of your favorites (Cigar City, Brooklyn Brewery, Uinta, etc.) and also try a few new brews from some brewers that haven’t even opened their doors yet (Tactical Brewing Co., Bombardment Brewing Co., Dees Brothers Brewery), while noshing from food trucks or just nibbling on a pretzel necklace. It’s all happening in Festival Park from noon to 5 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 12. Go to orlandobeerfestival.com – or check out our Selection on page 49 – for more details.
