Fort Myers Brewing Company is kicking off the hottest season of the year with its annual Summer Beer Fest June 23-26, a four-day summer bash featuring live music, food trucks and more than 50 specialty beers.
From Thursday, June 23 through Sunday, June 26, Fort Myers Brewing is featuring festivities for families, friends and pets to enjoy. A wide selection of locally brewed ales, stouts and lagers are on tap throughout the weekend, including a signature brew, the Summer Beer Fest Rice Lager that’s light, crisp and refreshing – the perfect companion to curb that summer heat.
Food truck rallies will feature eats from popular trucks such as The Nosh Truck, Wicked Streatery, Kings Tacos & Burritos, Vesuvius Wood Fired Pizza, Mambo and Mobstah Lobstah. Nine live performances will take place featuring The Yabo Brothers, Hat Trick, Ralph Curtis and more.
The brewery is also releasing limited-edition Summer Beer Fest swag, including commemorative glasses and T-shirts, available for purchase in the tap room.
Festivities will be held at Fort Myers Brewing Company, 12811 Commerce Lakes Drive, Suite 28, in Fort Myers. For more information, visit Facebook.com/FMBrew or call 239-313-6576. Guests are encouraged to bring lawn chairs, as seats tend to fill up quickly.
