Ever imagine what the beer equivalent to Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory would be? Well there’s no need to stretch your brain too much since odds are it would probably look a lot like theCoastline Festival this November 10 at the Cruzan Amphitheatre in West Palm Beach.
The festival is being organized by Live Nation and Ledge Entertainment, two of the nation’s leading live entertainment companies. The festival will feature a Beer-copia with a “Craft Beer Cove” featuring over 25 brewers. It’s not simply a beer festival, but one that showcases food, music and art as well, each facet designed to compliment the other. A Food Trucktopia and an Isle of Art will feature a lineup of Mediterranean to Vegetarian and Argentinean cuisine and local art.
The music line-up features bands Passion Pit, Two Door Cinema Club, Matt & Kim, Fitz & The Tantrums, Joy Formidable, Capital Cities, The Neighbourhood, The Mowgli’s, Surfer Blood, St. Lucia and The Royal Concept.
The beer line-up includes brewers such as Widmer Brothers, Sweet Water, Kona, New Belgium, Magic Hat Brewery, Southern Tier, Lagunitas Brewing Company, Dogfish Head, Ballast Point, Abita, Founders Brewing and more.
But it’s all about the local stuff, right? South Florida brewers include Native Brewing Company, Tequesta Brewing Company, Due South Brewing Company, Inlet Brewing Company and Funky Buddha Brewing Company. Other Florida brewers include Florida Avenue Ales and Cigar City.
