Upcoming Event: Otter Fest!

Hello! I hope everyone is having a good year so far! I know, I know. It’s early. For most of us, though, it feels like we are already well into 2018.

Currently, I am well into this beer I am drinking and if I could, I would bathe in it.

I will share a post on Instagram, but I am drinking the Imperial Mexican Biscotti Cake Break, a collaboration between Evil Twin and Westbrook. It’s an intense stout and it is a bit on the sweet side, but it’s really good. Truly a cake break. Whatever the hell that is. To me, a cake break is when my coworkers and I sneak over to the conference room on another coworker’s birthday, and well all pretend like it’s a surprise, but we all also know that everyone gets cake on their birthday, and we eat the cake and take a break from work. A cake break. Also, a run-on sentence.

Anyway, I wanted to pop on here and share the beers and breweries that are going to be at Otter Fest at Wekiva Island this weekend. First of all, if you aren’t from Florida, you probably don’t know what Wekiva Island is.

Wekiva Island is a beautiful oasis tucked away in the suburbs of Orlando. Hidden from the highway and sitting on the Wekiva River, you will find a bar with the best wines and craft beers available to the locals; along with a food truck that serves up classic Floridian and southern dishes. It’s a popular spot for the folks who want to sit back and enjoy Florida’s nature while drinking some of the tastiest brews and wines known to mankind.

Anyway, onto the Otter Fest deets!

If you get VIP, the first pour you will receive is the Tooting Otter Pale Ale (one of my favorites). It’s a beer you can drink all day without the compromise of delicious flavors.

I won’t tell you my favorites, but I will tell you this list gets me all warm and fuzzy inside! I am so excited! It’s coming up this Saturday, from 1 to 5 PM, if you get VIP tickets. Regular tickets will get you in from 2 to 5 PM. VIP tickets also allow you to enter to win some cool Island shhwaaaagggg, so I recommend going with VIP.

There will be wine, but we don’t care about that. We only care about the beer. (Sort of. I like wine, but beer is where it’s at!)

Hope to see you all there!
