ST. AUGUSTINE, FL — The 5th annual STA Brewers’ Festival will be held from 1 to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 4, 2024 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.

“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.

Festival organizers have donated more than $50,000 to deserving nonprofits in the St. Augustine and St. Johns County community through Brewing A Community. This year’s nonprofit beneficiaries include the St. Johns County Marine Science Program, EPIC Behavioral Healthcare, the St. Augustine Lighthouse & Maritime Museum, and Swamp Haven (pet adoption).

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.
