The Red, White and Craft Brews Fest Returns

April 9, 2013

Largo, FL (April 9, 2013)  The Armed Forces History Museum’s 2013 Special Event Series presented by Maggi Tax Advisory and Veteran Solutions continues with the return of the Red, White and Craft Brews Fest on Saturday, May 18, 2013 from 5pm to 9pm.  Tickets, priced at $25, are on sale now by visiting www.armedforcesmuseum.com, by calling 727.539.8371 or in person at the museum.

Last year’s inaugural event was a huge success, prompting the museum to welcome it back again.  This year, the event is being held during American Craft Beer Week which is May 13-19, 2013.  For the eighth consecutive year, the Brewers Association has declared American Craft Beer Week® (ACBW), a celebration of U.S. craft brewers across the country. Last year, ACBW was celebrated by breweries, brewpubs and retailers in all 50 states with over 1,300 official events. More than 35,000 beer lovers (now up to more than 45,000) were part of the Facebook community alone, undoubtedly making 2012 the largest celebration of ACBW yet.  From May 13-May 19, the tradition will continue and ACBW will provide an opportunity for small and independent brewers, craft beer enthusiasts and the community of better beer retailers to celebrate the ever advancing beer culture here in the U.S.  Events will include exclusive brewery tours, special beer releases, multi-course food and pairing dinners, collaboration beers, retail promotions and much more.  The Armed Forces History Museum is pleased to offer a signature event during this week.

The Red, White and Craft Brews Fest features over 75 craft and specialty beers in addition to complimentary food thanks to the Florida Restaurant Purchasing Group.  Additionally, the first 300 guests will receive a free souvenir beer tasting cup.

The museum’s 2013 Special Event Series is presented in part by Clearwater Toyota.  Additional Brews Fest sponsors include Cigar City Brewing, J.J. Taylor Distributors and tbt*.
