10-24-2016, The BeerVibe Crew

The 2016 Grovetoberfest was held at the Miami Marine Stadium this year. The event had outgrown Peacock Park in Coconut Grove. Many may not have been happy with the change of venue, but those who attended got to enjoy the view of the intercoastal which contributed a lot to the vibe.

The coordinator and arranger of Grovetoberfest; Tony Albelo took to the stage to thank everyone, congratulate Petersen’s Brewing Company of Miami (winners of the Homebrew contest), and to offer suggestions to make the most of the event, “Pace yourselves… drink a little, eat a little, drink a little more, eat a little more.” Beer Vibe appreciates that. Well done. Have a great time without overindulging.

Many breweries were present. Here is a small list: Eagle Brands, Devour Brewing, Elysian Brewing Company, Gold Coast, Brown, 26 Degrees Brewing, Angry Chair Brewing, and many more.

With over 300 craft beers to sample, perfect weather (until later that night), food trucks, fake moustaches (not a typo), and kicking tunes; the event was a smashing success. All present had the best time. After the beer vendors left, the fun continued to be fueled by music from guest DJ Ariel Assault; spinning tunes to a packed dance floor.

Beer Vibe is proud to have represented and gives a big thanks to Dina Allende and SWARM. She works very hard. She provided the tickets for the Beer Vibe winner that enjoyed the event thoroughly (there are pictures).

Next year’s is already being put together with the promise of being even better.
