The fourth-annual WakeFest Invitational will take place at Mana Wynwood on Saturday, February 2nd, from noon to 5:00 p.m. Over 120 independently-owned craft breweries from across the country and around the world, are expected to pour, including eight of the top 10 craft brewers in the world according to RateBeer. Almost all of the breweries are from out-of-state and have been individually selected and invited by the JWB brew team.
Most of the brewers pouring at WakeFest only come to South Florida once a year, specifically to pour at this festival. Over 2,200 craft beer lovers attended this year’s WakeFest, many traveling to Miami, just for the event.
“WakeFest is a way for us to bring some of the world’s best brewers to Miami. It was unimaginable that these brewers would have come to a beer festival in Miami, even six years ago. The rapid growth of the event shows that our fans truly appreciate the incredible beer that is being made by independent brewers across the country and in Europe, just just as much as we do,” explained JWB founder and owner, Johnathan Wakefield.
VIP bottle package tickets will be available for $350 per ticket plus tax and service fees. VIP bottle package tickets include early entrance at 11AM, special VIP tasting glass, free access to VIP food vendors, unlimited beer, special VIP area with specialty beers, five 500ml special release bottles, one 750ml bottle of That’s the Ticket (brewed each year, exclusively for the event) and first dibs to purchase additional specialty bottles.
100 of the VIP bottle package tickets will be made available to locals in the taproom on Monday, November 26th, at 10:00 a.m. Tickets will be limited to two per person.
The remaining VIP bottle package tickets will go on sale, online, on Tuesday, November 27th, at noon. General admission tickets ($60 plus tax and service fees until January 1, 2019, and $75 plus, thereafter.) will go on sale after the VIP tickets are sold out. Last year, that took about 10 minutes.
