Corporate Ladder Brewing Company To Host 16 Other Florida Breweries at their First Anniversary Party on May 25th

South Beach Brewing Sunset IPA

I've already got my VIP ticket for Corporate Ladder Brewing Company's 1 year anniversary party. You should join me there, at their brewery in Palmetto right off of I-75, on Saturday May 25th. Here are seven solid reasons why:

1) It's also a beer fest. Sixteen other Florida breweries will be pouring samples. These breweries are all listed below, along with the beers they will be pouring.

2) Three food trucks will be there plus the BBQ restaurant next door.

3) The commemorative Rastal glass pictured above is included with the tickets, plus there's an exclusive bottle release for the VIPs. 

4) There will be live music all day from eight different bands.

5) The 16 guest breweries and outside beer fest is all under a giant tent to keep us shaded. Cool off in the AC inside where Corporate Ladder will be pouring their own beers.

6) There will be several specialty beers and limited releases from Corporate Ladder (in addition to their regular beers) in the tap room, which doesn't require a ticket for the beer festival. Two special can releases are planned. Only VIPs get the special release bottle (included in ticket price).

7) 100% of net proceeds go to a Florida non-profit promoting STEM education programs for public schools in Manatee county.

VIP ($75) and General Admission ($50) tickets are limited so get them soon. You can purchase tickets online here, or at the brewery to avoid the online service fee. Drink Local Florida will be there as soon as it opens for VIPs (‪11am‬). Please say "Hello" if you see me, I'll be in a green Drink Local Florida t-shirt.
