Miami, FL—On Saturday, February 18, 2017, J. Wakefield Brewing will celebrate its second anniversary with WakeFest 2017, at Mana Wynwood (318 NW 23rd Street). WakeFest 2017 will be the largest craft beer festival ever in Wynwood with over 90 local, national and international craft breweries pouring their signature creations. 50 out-of-state US breweries, 30 Florida breweries and 11 international breweries will be represented. This will be the first time that many of the beers of the out-of-state and international brewers will be available in the State of Florida. It may well be the largest collection of international craft breweries ever assembled for a beer festival in Miami. In addition, J. Wakefield Brewing will be pouring nearly 40 of its own beers on draught. There will also be a large collection of specialty bottles.

“As I’ve travelled around, I’ve been fortunate to meet and collaborate with so many great craft brewers and taste their exceptional beers. I thought it would be really cool to bring these beers back to Miami for everyone else to experience," said Johnathan Wakefield, JWB’s founder, owner and brewmaster.

Some of South Florida’s most-popular food trucks and craft eateries will be on hand including
