Festivals in Destin, Florida are some of the most anticipated events around the year. The fall season brings beer, wine, and seafood festivals which attract many visitors to the Emerald Coast. Saturday, September 26th is this year’s date for the 2015 Beer Festival held at Chan’s Wine World in the Paradise Key Shopping Center.
Leading up to the big event, select local restaurants will be participating to make “Beer Week” in Destin. World of Beer in Destin Commons will kick off the week’s events with a Colorado Tap Takeover on the 22nd. The next night, The Craft Bar will host a Cigar City Tap Takeover from 6-10pm. On the 24th, Boshamps Seafood & Oyster House on the harbor will have a Gulfside Party and Concert with live music by Big Sam’s Funky Nation. The Craft Bar will be celebrating Dogfish Head Brewery’s 20th anniversary with a party on Friday evening.
The festival will begin on Saturday where over 100 beers and craft spirits will be on hand to sample. Food provided by Bonefish Grill and The Craft Bar will also be available in the culinary tents. The Rips will be on location performing live music for the event. A VIP lounge will be available with exclusive brews and treats for those who purchase the limited VIP tickets. These ticket holders will also enjoy early access to the event.
Proceeds from this year’s festival will benefit Children in Crisis and The Emerald Coast Autism Center. To attend the full lineup of events, many take advantage of the luxury Destin and 30a rentals for overnight accommodations.
Wine World was founded in 2000 by Chan Cox with Destin being the first location to open. It has continued to be Northwest Florida’s most successful full service retailer of fine wine, spirits and beer. Each location also provides a selection of gourmet foods, cheeses and accessories. There are now three locations that offer fine dining with award-winning wine lists.
