There has been an increase in food, beer and wine festivals in the Tampa area in the last few years. Some festivals outshine others. There is one festival that I have been drooling over and I am extremely excited to finally be attending: Clearwater Beach Uncorked. This two day festival features food, BEER, wine, cooking demonstrations and so much more. Even better, it is located on the gorgeous and world famous Clearwater Beach.
Did I mention that beer, wine and food samples are all INCLUDED in your admission? Come hungry and thirsty. Clearwater Beach Uncorked also had a blogger contest to select some bloggers of the year. Guess what?
I WON! I will be attending as the Clearwater Beach Uncorked Beer Blogger of the Year! I am so excited to have this honor. Speaking of beer, there will be some great breweries in attendance. Included are 3 Daughters, Brew Bus Brewing, Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Ale, Islamorada Beer Company, and Keybilly Island Ale.
The festival will also feature live cooking demonstrations and some talented chefs. The incredible Emily Ellyn is one of them! You have probably seen her on The Food Network. Yours truly will also be involved in a beer demonstration. I can't wait.
Tickets are $47 for Saturday or $37 for Sunday with a special code on this Clearwater Beach Uncorked Facebook post.
Parking can be tricky at the beach. Luckily, Clearwater Beach Uncorked put together a helpful parking map to assist us all.
