Suncoast Festivals has announced their new event, 
Sip the Sunshine All-Florida Craft Beer Festival benefiting the University of South Florida Sarasota Manatee’s College of Hospitality and Tourism on Saturday, October 29th, 2016 at Nathan Benderson Park, 5851 Nathan Benderson Circle, in Sarasota, FL. 

Sip the Sunshine is the premier All-Florida Craft Beer Festival showcasing the talents of Florida’s award-winning established breweries and those younger breweries you may not have heard of yet. This event is like no other the suncoast has ever seen, with 50 Florida Craft Breweries in attendance serving over 100 beers! We have also secured the area’s top chefs and caterers to create Florida-inspired cuisine for all attendees.
While guests are enjoying the best craft beer from the state, we are also giving the Florida Craft beer community reason to celebrate for years to come. A portion of the proceeds will be to the Food and Beverage Science Program at the University of South Florida Sarasota/Manatee’s College of Hospitality and Tourism. This program will help train the next generation of Florida Brewers. The only way to continue the explosive growth Florida has seen in its craft beer community is to support the passion inside those beer enthusiasts that want to take the next step. The school’s dedication to the future of Florida craft beer is worth supporting.
