5. Florida beer tap takeover at Riverside Market
Neighborhood hangout The Riverside Market is going local when it hosts a Florida Beer Company gathering tonight (Friday) starting at 7 p.m. The store will welcome the local debut of Gaspar's Porter and Devil's Triangle IPA, with Riverside acting as the first store in Fort Lauderdale to carry the new brews. There will be beer and food specials and live music. Gaspar's Porter is a robust porter last available in 2009. This represents a retooling of the beer which has a reformulated recipe and a sweet new logo and label. This is a must-do for fans of the Drink Like a Local movement.
4. Pig roast at Sybarite Pig
How fitting that the Sybarite Pig in Boca Raton has chosen an indulgent pig roast as its entry into South Florida Beer Week's activity roster. The roast is Sunday from noon to close, with a $30 ticket buying you all-you-can-eat pork with bread and special sauces, plus one Cigar City Brewing draft selection or two bottled beers from a special menu. The bar also will offer its regular menu at the regular prices, in case pork isn't your want; great craft brews available either way.
