…and a little more
For those who can’t get enough of the fun atmosphere provided by the Craft Beer Festival, there’s good news—the festivities last all week long!
The festival itself is the culmination of a week’s worth of fun activities for beer lovers, known as Volusia Beer Week. The week includes the Craft Beer Festival we talked about above, the #DrinkVolusia Bus Tour, and Brews and Bowties.
The #DrinkVolusia Bus Tour takes place on January 30th, and is a special event geared toward showcasing the one-of-a-kind breweries Volusia County has to offer. Participants pay ahead of time for their ticket, which includes transportation and one drink at Odd Elixir Meads and each of the six other stops on the tour. For beer connoisseurs who love to try a bit of everything, this is an experience worth considering!
Following the tour, on February 4th, participants will be able to enjoy dishes from 12 local restaurants paired with 12 rare beers during the Brews & Bowties event in Downtown DeLand. This event is perfect for those who enjoy their meals with a unique beer pairing.
The Craft Beer Festival and other premier events aren’t just fun—they support great causes, too! 100 percent of the proceeds from these events will be used to support Volusia County’s craft beverage community as well as the MainSreet DeLand Association.
