This 9th November, all bourbon and craft beer lovers will be gathering at the Henderson Beach Resort for Craft Beer, Bourbon, and Food Festival from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm. This event that is presented by Wine World is for the benefit of the local charity, Children in Crisis, Inc. Florida.

Sample hundreds of delicious small-batch beers & bourbons alongside food hand-crafted by some of the area’s favorite restaurants. Enjoy live music performances, games & fun, and enter the raffle to win awesome prizes.

Here’s the line-up of the event:

The Beer

This is not your ordinary beer fest.
Don’t come to this event expecting all the same brews you get on every corner! The beers you’ll enjoy at #DestinCrafted are true craft, and many are truly rare (whether seasonal releases, hard to find or never before seen in this area!)
…but sure, we’ll pour some of your favorites too.

The Bourbon

WHISKEY NERDS WELCOME!

Our line-up is hand-selected by industry experts to showcase the most award-winning expressions alongside new & exciting distillers.

VIP’s will have the unique opportunity to meet & mingle with industry celebrities at Friday night’s event, and taste a selection of spirits not featured on Saturday.

 

FEAST ON, FOODIES!

Enjoy local foods hand-crafted by some of the Emerald Coast’s top dining establishments to accompany your samples of craft beer and bourbon!

 

Reserve your VIP ticket for access to the exclusive cocktail hour on the Rooftop Sunset Vista on Friday night, and the “Beer ‘n Brunch” at The Craft Bar on Sunday morning! These exclusive events will feature food & beverage not included in Saturday’s tasting.
