Sprung! beer festival is just a few weeks away

Sprung! is coming, that's the Spring and Summer craft beer festival by the same guys who brought you Grovetoberfest. On March 9, Peacock Park will be the place for  South Florida craft beer enthusiasts.

“Our inboxes were flooded with requests for a spring festival. This event is by the people and for the people, and it’s because of them that we sprung into action to create it,” said event director Tony Albelo. “We’re going to continue focusing on our mission of expanding craft beer in South Florida, while adding seasonal beers and sprinkling a little more fun into the mix,” he continued.

Because Sprung! takes place in March, beer fans will have the opportunity to sample over 150 Spring and Summer craft beers, which are considered to be some of the best seasonal beers of the year. Breweries like Sierra Nevada, Brooklyn Brewery, Kona, Magic Hat, Shiner, Shipyard, Harpoon, Blue Moon and many more will be showcasing their spring and summer offerings.

Sprung! will also host a complete lineup of Florida beers from Schnebley, Cigar City, Tequesta Brewing and Florida Beer, to name a few. Local breweries like Wynwood Brewing, Most Wanted, Opus Ales and others are now also springing up in South Florida, so they'll be there too. In addition, the lineup includes a complete list of ciders including Crispin Cider, Magner’s and Woodchuck. As an added bonus, event goers will be treated to a selection of beer not available in South Florida from Sweetwater Brewing from Atlanta and Fat Cat Beer from Wisconsin. Sprung! will also offer a homebrew section featuring brews created by local beer lovers.

“The atmosphere at Sprung! is meant to be fun and free-spirited. There’s no event like it in the area, and much like Grovetoberfest, Sprung! will become a staple of the South Florida scene,” said Tony. Sprung! will feature a dedicated section for games including Corn Hole, Giant Jenga, Beer Pong, Mega Twister and Human Bowling -- complete with large, plastic balls big enough to hurl a person for strikes! Music will be provided by the hip hop ensemble, ArtOficial, offering their blend of jazz and funk influences. In addition, there will be plenty of food vendors offering a wide variety of tasty treats.

Tickets are currently on sale at IgotSprung.com, including a limited number of VIP tickets, which will give ticket holders a one-hour head start and access to the VIP tent where food and a special selection of beer will be available only to those ticket holders. The tickets range in price from $39 for general admission, $69 for Beer Socialite and $89 for VIP.

Because Cocowalk is tiny. Events this size need to be held at the park OR require streets could be closed all around the Grove and the event held on the street. Also, there's more to the Grove than Cocowalk.
