SAVE THE DATE for Saturday, June 24 when BeerFest 2017 kicks summer into high gear with Barley’s Angels, featuring craft beers and local brewers, plus snacks and samples from some of Tampa’s top independent restaurants.A limited-capacity premium sampling will begin at 7:00 p.m., and grand sampling ticket-holders can enter at 8:00 p.m. Costumes inspired by the grrl-power action movie starring Cameron Diaz, Drew Barrymore and Lucy Liu are encouraged! And though the themes may be silly, the purpose of Tampa Theatre fundraisers like BeerFest and WineFest is most serious: together, the two events raised $162,000 last year to benefit the not-for-profit historic movie palace’s artistic, educational and community programs, as well as its ongoing preservation and restoration. BeerFest 2017 is sponsored by Mutual of Omaha Bank and Holland & Knight. Participating breweries and restaurants, plus more details and tickets coming soon!
