American Craft Beer Week
continues tonight with three outstanding events throughout Broward and Palm Beach Counties. Which means you don't have to drive too far to get a taste of great craft beer.
If You're in Palm Beach...
...then you've got to hit up BX Beer Depot's
(2964 Second Ave., Lake Worth) Tiki Bar Anniversary Party. For two years, this covered tiki bar behind the Lake Worth homebrew shop has
played host to outstanding bluegrass, blues, and folk bands, as well as offering an ever-changing selection of rare and special craft beers. That tradition continues tonight at 7p.m. with live music, custom-smoked barbecue for sale by the plate, and a few really cool kegs including Avery Maharaja and a hush-hush batch from Tequesta Brewing Company. Oh yeah: Entry is free.
If You're In Central Broward...
...you're in luck, because Stage 84
(9118 W. State Road 84, Davie) is doing a nifty beer pairing featuring a host of four-ounce beer flights. Each flight features four pours of craft beer, plus a food pairing, all for just $9.99. The pairings are Holy Mackerel Golden ale with cheddar cheese and ham, Holy Mackerel Panic attack with Chinese popstickers, the Eleven Brown Ale with barbecue chicken wings, and Cigar City Maduro Brown Ale with chocolate macaroons. Pints of any of the above are just $4 too. The event is free, and starts at 8 p.m.
If You're in South Broward...
...then visit the totally free craft beer tasting at Hollywood Vine
(2035 Harrison St., Hollywood). Beginning at 7 p.m. and running until 9, comers can sample Victory V-12, Rogue Double Mocha Porter, Avery Reverend, and Cigar City Guava Grove. Of course, each beer will be available for sale as well. Free beer in downtown H-wood? What's not to love?
