Hogtown Craft Beer Festival Draws Brewers, Enthusiasts
It's a toast to a well-known beverage and local charities too.
The third annual Hogtown Craft Beer Festival was held today at Kanapaha Gardens.
The festival focused primarily on Florida brewers with over 65 brewers and 200 individual beers being showcased.
For the first time since the festivals creation, all 1,400 of the tickets were sold.
"Part of our mission with the club is to preach the gospel for craft beer," said festival organizer Mark Tumarkin.
"There are four ingredients to making beer: water, yeast, hops, and grain. It's how you put those together and which ones you use that turns it into something special," said Gerald Walen, the author of Florida Breweries.
The Hogtown Craft Beer Festival is organized by the Hogtown Brewers, Gainesville's local non-profit homebrew club.
All of the money raised from the event goes to local charities.
