When you work hard, you want to play hard. These are simple but true words to live by. With Labor Day fast approaching, it’s the perfect time to celebrate and enjoy the last 3-day weekend of summer. And nothing says celebration like barbecues, picnics, pool parties, good company, and great beer.
If you’re in Florida Labor Day weekend, you’ll get all this and more at the 4th Annual Key West BrewFest, taking place Thursday, August 29, through Monday, September 2. Start your long weekend off right with prizes, raffles, drink specials and a Key West Home Brewers competition. After sampling the best of Key West’s mini-breweries, enjoy the 3rd Annual Florida Beer Company Pool Party and a beer seminar where you can learn more about craft beer and the process. End your fun-filled weekend at the signature event, the Key West BrewFest Tasting Festival where you can sample over 150 different beers!
