Sprung!, the Spring version of fall's Grovetoberfest, will kick Spring into action with their craft beer festival on Saturday, March 8. The unlimited beer tasting will feature over 150 Spring and Summer ales in the heart of Coconut Grove from 3:00 to 7:00 pm at Peacock Park.
New this year, along with all that beer is the Gold Coast Culinary Experience. It will feature Richard Hales at Blackbrick Chinese & Sakaya Kitchen, Reuven Sugarman at Buns & Buns, Jimmy Carey at Jimmy'z Kitchen Wynwood, and George Patti at MEAT Eatery And Taproom. These chefs will pair their culinary talents with an array of Gold Coast beer during live cooking demos scheduled at 3:15, 4:15, 5:15 and 6:15 pm.
New Belgium, Founder’s, SweetWater, Green Flash, Sierra Nevada, Brooklyn Brewery, Kona, Magic Hat, Shiner, Shipyard, Harpoon, Blue Moon and many others will showcase their spring and summer offerings. Sprung! will also host a complete lineup of Florida beers from Schnebley, Cigar City, Tequesta Brewing and Florida Beer along with local breweries such as Funky Buddha, Wynwood Brewing, M.I.A, and Opus Ales. This lineup will include a complete list of ciders such as Crispin Cider, Magner’s and Woodchuck.
Beer enthusiasts will also be treated to a selection not available in South Florida, and in keeping with tradition, the homebrew section will showcase brews created by locals who are passionate about their beer. Sprung! will also bring back the Orange Pride Games Arena & Bar -- a dedicated game section, which includes Corn Hole, Giant Jenga, Beer Pong, Mega Twister, Human Bowling and a few other surprises. In addition to Bougainvillea’s Live Music Stage, there will be plenty of vendors offering a wide range of food and the Gold Coast Beverage Distributor Culinary Experience, which will pair beer with the talents of some of South Florida’s favorite chefs.
