Twenty-eight different local handcrafted beers from 14 Florida microbreweries will flow on August 18th at Jax 5th Ave Deli & Ale House | Lake Mary for Floridafest 2018. This celebration of Florida craft beer in Lake Mary will run from 3:00 PM till 7 PM and the fun will include meet & greets with brewery reps, a "Keep the Glass" promotion, free swag, and raffle prizes. Unlike a traditional festival, FloridaFest is indoors and there is no entry fee. Beers will be pay-as-you-go.
Florida Brews Celebrated At Jax 5th Ave Lake Mary Craft Beer Festival
All participating microbreweries will be from the sunshine state and many will be from Central Florida. Hyper-local participants include WopsHops Brewing Company, Sanford Brewing Company, and Orange County Brewers. There will also be beers poured from breweries on the coast like Tampa Bay Brewing Company and Tomoka Brewing Co. Islamorada Beer Company from all the way down in the Florida Keys will even be in attendance! Most of the micros have not announced what brews they'll bring to the table, but you can definitely look forward to The Dude (a white Russian milk stout) from Ormond Brewing Company and three different IPAs from Daytona Beach Brewing Company.
Got a non-beer drinker along for the ride? Jax 5th Ave. has them covered too. The company has a wide variety of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages available for purchase. They also have an extensive menu. The food is "classic American fare with a gourmet twist" and the Lake Mary deli & ale house is known for their signature burgers, succulent wings, flatbreads, pizzas, salads and more. Alongside a wide variety of things to eat and drink Jax 5th Ave. offers tons of TVs, free wifi, pool tables, and four pet-friendly patios.
