Crack a Cold One This Summer at a Brewery

Because there’s nothing like a cold beer on a hot day

We are surrounded by breweries, but those outside our boundaries often aren’t aware of the cold brews right around the corner.

While we’ve listed the Palm Beach County breweries below for you, I wanted to also alert folks to a Watermelon Party at Tarpon River Brewing in Broward County.

Tarpon River Brewery

The Wit-R-Melon beer showcased on Aug. 3, from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m., is made with watermelon for “a unique, tropical taste.” Why not? And there will be Wit-R-Melon slushies, a watermelon-inspired menu and more at this brewery/restaurant/taproom (pictured). Plus music from DJ Blue, Lonewolf and Josh Diaz & The Bonfires.
