Grovetoberfest is back in the Grove, and it’s bigger than ever. For the past six years, the festival has served up one of the top craft beer events in the country, attracting close to 7,000 beer enthusiasts eager to drink unlimited samples of 400 beers from hundreds of breweries, all while listening to Live music. This year, festival organizers worked closely with Coconut Grove Commissioner Ken Russell to move back to where it all began in Peacock Park, and the news has been met with great excitement.

To celebrate, Grovetoberfest has put together a great lineup including “first time” pours from 81 Bay Brew Company, Aslin Beer Company, Hidden Springs Ale Works, Lord Hobo Brewing, Ocleot Brewing, and Proof Brewing Company. Some returning heavyweights include 3 Sons Brewing Co., Octave Brewing, and Odd Breed Wild Ales. Also returning will be Angry Chair Brewing, Civil Society Brewing, and J. Wakefield Brewing. In addition, Grovetoberfest will have treatments from LauderAle Brewing, 26° Brewing Company, and 81Bay Brewing Co. The Homegrown Pavilion will delight beer drinkers with a collection of up and coming Florida brewers.

This year, the festival’s Kitchen Lab will be presented by Macy’s. The chefs, who will be conducting demos that pair well with beer, hail from Grove Bay Hospitality Group and include Chef Jeff McInnis and Janine Booth from Stiltsville Fish Bar, Chef Brett Hessler from American Harvest, Chef Jeremy Ford from Stubborn Seed and Chef Giorgio Rapicavoli from Glass and Vine.

The VIP Lounge will be hosted by Chef M from Latin House Grill and as in the past, VIP ticket holders have access to certain perks not available to the general ticket holder such as early entrance, specialty brews, covered seating area and air-conditioned bathrooms.
