This beer festival on Saturday, Sept. 17, founded by local entrepreneur Frances Antonio-Martineau, celebrates women in the brewing industry and invites everyone in to savor their beer. The talented group of women also includes local female chefs, musicians and business owners who will showcase their craft at the festival as well.
Hosted by the Kimpton Goodland Hotel in Fort Lauderdale, the festival will offer several activities including a yoga class for those wanting to flow into their day.
Guests can look forward to unlimited beer samplings from about 30 brands including Islamorada Beer Company and Tarpon River Brewing. The hotel is offering a “Beercation” package that starts at $279 and includes a one-night stay and two general admission tickets. The yoga class is $65 and includes early access to the festival. General admission is $45.
The festival is pet friendly and in celebration of that it is donating a portion of the proceeds to local nonprofit Abandoned Pet Rescue, one of the largest no-kill shelters in South Florida.
