General Information Beer Descriptions Participating Restaurants Beer in Film

Welcome to the New Times 4th Annual International BeerFest...

a fundraiser for the Old Town at Riverwalk Merchant's Association. With more than 100 of the world's greatest beers and 40 local restaurants' fares being served, it's a celebration of the world of brews and food. Moderation is the key to full enjoyment of these distinctive beers. Careful planning and discretion will enhance your tasting experience. This event is structured as an unlimited sampling; however, time may limit your selection. Remember, too, that a number of featured beers are microbrewed, which can result in a higher-than-usual alcohol content. Please use this program as a guide to deciding which beers you would like to sample, and please enjoy them in moderation. Think before you drink, and don't drink and drive. If you choose to enjoy our fine brews, please arrange for transportation. If you need to call a taxi, call Yellow Cab at 954-565-5400 or come to the stage and ask a New Times employee for assistance. Admission is just $20 at the door. We have a special "designated driver" price of just $13 (available at the door only). Everyone can enjoy plenty of chow, coffee, bottled water, soft drinks, and of course live entertainment. Yeeeeeeha!
