Key West Brewfest, a days-long event occurring annually on Labor Day weekend, is a great way to get a feel for craft beer beyond Miami’s borders. All kinds of brews were there, including highlights from Barley Mow from Largo, FL, Seventh Sun Brewing from Dunedin, FL and Saint Somewhere from Tarpon Springs, FL.
Of course, the 305 and (305 adjacent) was on hand, and solid brews were poured as always from JWB (J. Wakefield), 4th Age, Funky Buddha and Wynwood.
It’s hard (if not impossible) to resist an ocean-front, barefoot stroll along Key West’s southernmost point, South Beach, so we didn’t. Here are some photos from the grand tasting event which occurred Aug 30. Enjoy!

not a regulation tasting glass, but we wont tell.
Wynwood keeps the beers light, tight.
Not too shabby of a way to spend the afternoon, huh?
