Beer Fest for Special Forces Around Destin, FL
The Fort Walton Beach Beer Fest 2015 is Coming Up Saturday, March 28th
iLoveDestin.com will be covering the Annual FWB Beer Festival at the very active Uptown Station off Eglin Parkway, only 10 to 15 minutes across beautiful Okaloosa Island from Destin, FL.Â
The FWB Beer Fest hosted by Chan’s Wine World at Uptown Station was a huge success last year featuring 75 unique craft beers from over 20 surrounding breweries. The event was sold out to over 500 attendees who were able to sample delectable cuisine as well as the featured beers. They raised $7,794.79 for the Special Forces Association, Ch. 7 of the United States Army (Airborne) which was 100% of the proceeds.
This year they are hoping to top the proceeds of before and will be featuring 90+ beers and even specialty spirits. Oh, and of course, delicious cuisine. We were lucky enough to cover the Destin Beer Festival and the food was a pleasant and very welcomed surprise, prepared and presented very well. Let’s just say it’s far more food than expected and really delicious.
There is still time to plan to attend this event by checking with our lodging partners if you are traveling from outside of Destin. Festivals are a special and meaningful extra purpose to visit and stay on our beautiful Emerald Coast! A must on your calendar of things to do in Destin, FL when you come.
This event is from 1pm – 4pm on Saturday, March 28 with ticket cost $30 in advance and $45 the day of. Click HERE FOR TICKETS. There will be raffles for other items as well.
