Grovetoberfest 2016 is rapidly approaching! Just three weeks until the annual festival makes its debut in a more accessible and bigger location: Key Biscayne's Miami Marine Stadium.
While my personal favorite stops are the local Florida breweries, I definitely won't resist some of the special stuff that Chief Sample Taster Tony Albelo has promised! Estoteric, Unique, Elite! Oh My! Blackberry Farms, Civil Society, Mikkeller, Prairie? Sure, sign me up!
As usual, I plan on documenting the awesome beer brands people represent on the shirts they wear. Here are last year's entries, which were a little tame compared to other years, even "Meh" as you see in the last shirt! LOL.
CONTEST: Actually, how about you show me now what you plan to wear to Grovetoberfest 2016? Email me your t-shirt modeling photo, DailyBeerReview@yahoo.com. I will publish it in this post and you will be entered to win two general admission tickets to the festival.
The rules... If I don't get your email, sorry. "Tasteful" pictures required--they don't need to be PG but I can't publish everything; and I define tasteful. Pictures must be submitted by Friday 9/30/16 at midnight and I'll randomly pick a winner the next day. Any other rules I need to make, don't worry, I'll do it along the way.
Here is some info. Be sure to check out their website too for any updates and a lot of other cool information about some of the festival activities, besides drinking beer. They include live bands, games, food, and HOW TO GET HOME SAFELY! Don't be a Dick and drive home drunk! And I couldn't resist posting the list of participating breweries and distributors below. That list is MONEY and still growing!
