Schedule of Events:

Firkin Fête: Friday, October 1, 2021 from 6:30-9pm on Kelly Green 

Join us for our 2nd Annual Firkin Fête on October 1st, 2021. Firkin Fête features a unique tasting experience as we tap firkins of beer created by local and regional breweries. The firkins, each an 11-gallon keg, are unique in that no one, including the brewers themselves, can know what the final product will taste like until the firkins are tapped for the event! Firkin Fête will also feature live music performances and the culinary creations of chefs from throughout the southeast. This festive evening is not to be missed!

Spirited Seminars: Saturday, October 2 from 11am-1pm

The Spirited Seminars feature four opportunities to learn from some of the best Mixologists in the industry. The seminars will explore the art of the cocktail from the elements of tasting like a pro to special tips for crafting the perfect drink for seamless, gracious entertaining. Preparations, pairings, new craft ingredients and products – these renowned Mixologists invite you behind the bar for a glimpse into the craft of creating beautiful cocktails.

Spirited Soirée: Saturday, October 2 from 3-6pm Pedestrian Path 

Spirited Soirée features craft cocktails from hand-selected mixologists from all over the country. We have paired the mixologists with designated distilleries, to create the perfect cocktail. Guests will have the opportunity taste the spirits both neat and in the curated cocktail, and will hear from the distillers and mixologists on the inspiration and process behind each unique pairing. Enjoy hand-crafted cocktails and spirits, and take home some of the new concepts, trends, and products currently setting the beverage world a-buzz.

The well-being of homeowners, patrons, sponsors, team members and talent is the top priority here at Alys Beach. In preparation for Alys Beach Crafted, the event team is actively monitoring the status of COVID-19 alongside the updates and guidelines from the CDC and the Florida Department of Public Health. Alys Beach will make adjustments to the event offerings as deemed necessary for the health and safety of all involved.
