From June 3rd to June 9th four different Yelp communities throughout Florida brought love to their local craft beer scenes with Yelp Florida Beer Week! Over 25 Florida breweries from Tampa to the Florida Keys took part in Yelp Beer Week by hosting unique, brew-focused events or offering 50% off a flight when checking in on Yelp. There were even two breweries who created a Yelp-themed beer for the week!
Check out how each community celebrated below:
Yelp Tampa Bay
Yelp Tampa Bay put on four events during Yelp Beer Week that spanned a wide array of businesses to showcase our bustling beer scene. They included:
BRU Florida Growler Bar – a bar that has a rotating tap list of Florida made beer
Southern Lights Brewing – a nano-brewery
Motorworks Brewing – a brewery with the largest beer garden in Florida
Brew Hub – on top of brewing its own beer, Brew Hub provides full brewing, packaging, distribution and selling services for craft breweries that are capacity, geographically, or financially constrained.
Yelp Orlando kicked off Yelp Beer Week with a tasting party at Orange County Brewers! OCB’s badass lady brewmaster brewed a special Cherry Rye American Pale Ale called “Yelp About It” that guests could enjoy all week long. Celebrations continued at the Broken Cauldron Taproom and Brewery’s second birthday with a brewery tour and a guided tasting.
The promotion wrapped up with Hop On! Central Florida Brew Tours! Orlando Yelpers got to hop on a “beer flight” to three local breweries: Ellipsis Brewing, Dead Lizard Brewing Company and Broken Cauldron Taproom and Brewery.
Yelp Broward-Palm Beach
Yelp Beer Week in Broward-Palm Beach saw 11 breweries across the community offering 50% off on flights of beer. The promotion kicked off with Yelp BeerFest at Young At Art Museum, where 14 local and national breweries as well as 14 restaurants offered about 300 guests samples to sip and savor.
Yelp Beer Week – Miami featured 50% a flight at 12 different breweries in the community and a special Yelp beer from Biscayne Bay Brewing Company called Guayabazo; a sessionable guava IPA.
