Homebrew contest part of this year's Grovetoberfest
Grovetober Fest is back at Peacock Park, October 13. Beer enthusiasts from all over will converge rigtht here in Coconut Grove to sample unlimited beer from across the country and around the world. If it's anything like last year's first class event, there will be thousands of people!
Aficionados and the “casual beer fan” will take an active role in beer sampling by voting for their favorite beers in three different categories. They will also sample the festival’s very own Grovetoberfest Coconut Porter, which will only be available at the festival. In addition to featuring 200 craft beers, Grovetoberfest will include an entertainment stage featuring Robert Elias, a Homebrew Pavilion, a Kitchen Lab for beer/food pairings, a VIP area and Food Row, where restaurants and food trucks will sell local fare.
New this year, Grovetoberfest will hold a “Miami’s Best Homebrew Contest” presented by BX Beer Depot. The winner’s beer will be available at a local restaurant/bar for the rest of the year. Contest is only open to home brewers. Grovetoberfest will also showcase all that Miami has to offer by running a National sweepstakes in conjunction with Beer Magazine and Draft that will give one lucky winner and a guest the VIP treatment, including roundtrip airfare, 2-night hotel accommodations at Sonesta Bayfront Hotel Coconut Grove, VIP tickets to the event, a Jet-Ski tour and a Deep-Sea Fishing trip.
Grovetoberfest is from 3 to 7 pm.
