Northeast Florida Beer Cup set for Sept. 27 at Florida Theater

If you are planning on attending this year’s Northeast Florida Beer Cup event at the Florida Theater on Thursday, September 27, you had better get your tickets soon. The event, which features craft beers from both local and regional brewers and tasty foods from local eateries, is limiting ticket sales to 500 this year. If last year’s event is any indication of the fun to be had, this is a not-to-be-missed party.

Jacksonville’s premier lifestyle magazine, Jacksonville Magazine, is putting on the event again this year to sponsor the Children’s Miracle Network. Last year the event attracted over 400 beer enthusiasts and foodies who descended upon the glamorous and exciting Florida Theater to eat, drink, and enjoy the sound of local bluegrass sensation Grandpa’s Cough Medicine.

This year the event will once again feature music from GCM along with food and drink from a stellar list of brewers and fooderies. Among the beer suppliers this year are: Bold City Brewery, Intuition Ale Works, Beer:30, Green Room Brewing, Engine 15, Pinglehead Brewing Company, Sweetwater Brewing Company. Food will be furnished by European Street Café, Mellow Mushroom, French Fry Heaven, MOJO No. 4, Pele’s Wood Fire, and two outstanding food trucks: Mother Fletcher’s and On The Fly will be set up to feed departing guests. In addition the member of Jacksonville’s home brew club, C.A.S.K. (Cowford Ale Sharing Klub), will be providing samples of their creations and Baking Under the Influence will supply sweet treats made with beer. Other beer-centric folks expected to be at the event include the guys from the Jax Brew Bus, a local beer tour operator and Just Brew It, a local home brewer supply shop.

As if all that were not enough, the members of C.A.S.K. will be conducting a “People’s Choice” competition where you get to choose your favorite from among the club’s brews. There will also be a silent auction with an outstanding collection of very exciting merchandise up for grabs.

The event runs from 6:30 to 9:00, Thursday, September 27 at the Florida Theater downtown Jacksonville on Forsyth Street. Tickets are $35 for one or four for $120 and may be purchased online at Event Brite by following this link: https://beercup2012.eventbrite.com/.
