Additional Details

The Craft Brew Battle is celebrating its 3rd Annual A Hoppy Affair! during the 7th Annual Boca Raton Wine & Food Festival Sunday, November 6th at the Florida Atlantic University Boca Raton Campus. This is NOT your average beer pong party! This is catered towards enthusiasts who appreciate the chemistry of craft brew making and the skills of a Brew master. Get ready to experience an awesome variety of brews from around the world - A Hoppy Affair! is the quintessential celebration of craft brew! On a sun soaked November afternoon, there's no better place to sip suds amongst friends. Whether you prefer Belgians or Blondes, Pales or Pilsners, Saisons or Wits - come and see for yourself why we will be one of the best loved Craft Brew Festivals in South Florida. Rich Educational Seminars with knowledgeable Brew masters, Cheese Makers (or fromagere, the French term for cheese maker). You have to be wondering by now where the ‘BATTLE’ comes into play, right? We invite men and women to participate in the Consumer Challenge for the ‘Craft Brew Master’ award. Blindfolded guests will taste one ounce pours of different craft brews with the goal of identifying the hops and naming of the brew. The consumer who gets the most correct receives the “Craft Brew Master” trophy and of course bragging rights! Now for you food lovers, the Brew master experts say the best way to pair craft beer and a prepared dish is to have them both battle it out with equal strength so that one does not over power the other. The featured chefs are up for the challenge and are pairing their dish with what 'they' think is the best craft beer and you get to vote for the "Best Craft Beer Pairing". Say CHEESE!, you will be smiling ear to ear after you get to play with the artisanal cheeses in the new Craft Brew & Cheese Village joined by the cheese and brew experts. And, if that’s not enough...wait until you try the variety of unique food items that we will be showcasing in the Specialty Foods Village! Enjoy Live Entertainment and dancing at the Main Entertainment Stage & Lounge with MAKING FACES. We're looking forward to seeing you at A Hoppy Affair!
