25+ craft breweries come together at the Fountain of Youth Archaeological Park
ST. AUGUSTINE, FL — The 4th annual STA Brewers’ Festival will be held from 1 to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 6, 2023 at the beautiful Fountain of Youth Archeological Park, 11 Magnolia Ave. The festival will include free tastings from 25+ regional breweries, local food trucks, face painting and live music — all while enjoying one of St. Augustine’s most scenic and historical locations. Tickets will be available starting March 1 at stabrewersfest.com
“This is a great opportunity to try small batch beers right in your backyard. Each attending brewery is encouraged to not only bring a unique offering but also a true brewery representative to share insights of their creations and answer all of your questions,” said Doug and Courtney Murr, organizers and owners of Dog Rose Brewing Co.
In the past three years, festival organizers have donated more than $40,000 to deserving nonprofits in the St. Augustine and St. Johns County community through Brewing A Community. This year’s nonprofit beneficiaries include the UF Whitney Lab Education Program, the St. Johns County Marine Science Program, and the St. Augustine Lighthouse & Maritime Museum.
In addition to the regional brewers, five of St. Augustine’s breweries will be part of the event — Bog Brewing Co., Dog Rose Brewing Co., Ancient City Brewing Co., Old Coast Ales and The Brewery at Jack’s BBQ.
Unlimited beer tastings from the craft breweries will be the highlight of the annual St. Augustine Brewers’ Fest. Each ticket holder will receive a commemorative 6-ounce tasting glass.
Food will be available from favorite local food trucks and vendors — Funkadelic Food Truck, County Road Provisions, I Love Pierogi, and Datil Furters Hot Dogs, and The Spice and Tea Exchange.
Live music by The Thick & Thin String Band and One Good Ring will be on stage throughout the day.
Being true to a community event, family-friendly activities include face painting and plenty of space for kids to run around.
Merchandise for sale during the event will include t-shirts, koozies, and hats, all created by Skinny Lizard T-shirt Printers.
General admission tickets are $45 and a limited number of VIP tickets are $100. VIP tickets include guaranteed on-site parking, access to the climate-controlled pavilion, private air-conditioned bathrooms, a catered buffet, a festival tasting glass, and full festival access an hour early. This event will sell out. Tickets are available starting March 1 at stabrewersfest.com
