View Details


Cerveza. Brewski. Libation. Whatever you call beer, there's no denying CL loves it—and we know you do too!

Join us in celebrating your favorite brews at an indoor summertime festival dedicated to the hoppy goodness Tampa Bay can't seem to get enough of. Say hello to Creative Loafing's Beer Fest 2016!

Yes, that's right. Beer Fest is back, but this year we're bringing the fun downtown to Glazer Children's Museum—where you can play like a kid while drinking like an adult!

Choose from more than 95 craft beer varieties from more than 40 local and national breweries, interact with playful and exciting Glazer exhibits, enjoy amazing views of downtown Tampa, purchase tasty food from SaltBlock Catering Co., have fun in a photo booth by Premier Photo Booths of Tampa, and much, much more!

A portion of proceeds goes to Humane Society of Tampa Bay.
