Fort Myers Brewing Company Four Year Anniversary Party

Tap room, Fort Myers Brewing Company

The craft beer scene has been rapidly expanding in The United States since the early part of the 21st century. In 2015, craft beer sales were 13 percent of the total volume of beer sold accounting for 21 percent of all monies spent on beer in this country. Certainly, 2016 will prove to be an even better year for craft beer producers.

In 2013 Southwest Florida's first craft brewery opened in the Gateway area of Fort Myers. Since that time, Fort Myers Brewing Company has evolved into a major area beer producer offering at any one time up to 30 different styles of beer in their tasting room. In 2016, they also won a variety of accolades including not only recognition for two of Florida's best beers, but best large brewery at the prestigious Best Florida Beer Championships in Tampa.

On Thursdays, Fort Myers Brewing Company has a wonderful community event where the tap room is open late and local food trucks rally providing various dishes for patrons.

From Thursday, February 23rd through Sunday, February 26th, Fort Myers Brewing Company will be celebrating their four year anniversary party, virtually extending their Thursday night food truck rally all weekend. Entertainment will also be provided nightly. A beer drinking, 4 lap, mile long "Beer Mile" run will also be open to those interested on Sunday. Up to 12 different food trucks will participate in this event at various days over the weekend including The Nosh Truck, Organically Twisted and The Sizzle Truck. Up to 30 different craft beers will also be available for sampling.

This promises to be a great family- and community-oriented event. Seating is limited; bringing your own seating is highly recommended.
