We Dig St. Pete – Beer+Garden Tour

January 26 @ 1:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Free
Add in an engaging SPEAKER, a BUS TOUR, and some LIVE MUSIC and you’ve got St.Pete’s unique spin on the Biergärten experience – sustainability style.
What a way to spend the day!
Bring a date, bring your kids, gather your friends or grab your grandparents and join us for the “We Dig St. Pete” Beer+Garden Tour!

— Teach ‘em: We’ll kick it off at Cage Brewery with a guest speaker from the nationally acclaimed “Fleet Farming” project based in Orlando. (And our first beer tasting.)

— Tour ‘em: We’ll jump on buses to explore local gardens to learn all the ways we’re growing healthy food, resilient communities and green jobs on Florida’s edible urban frontier. Every garden will feature a different craft beer tasting — and garden educators will be on each bus and at each farmlette to satisfy your inquisitive minds.

— Taste ‘em: We’ll finish our outdoor adventure at Brick Street Farms where we’ll get a guided tour of St. Pete’s shipping container hydroponic farm which produces 10 acres of fresh food every 30 days. The USFSP Brewing Arts Program will showcase their students’ most recent “homework” (vote for your favorite!), and we’ll tempt you to stay and play with additional beer tastings, food trucks and live music.

Hosted by the Open Partnership Education Network (OPEN), the Sustainable Urban Agriculture Coalition (SUAC), and USFSP’s Brewing Arts Program.

Yep. We Dig St. Pete. (literally – and – figuratively) Find out why you should too!

Tickets are $10 for Adults and $5 for children under 10. (Priced to love & learn!)

ALL PROCEEDS go to support the Sustainable Urban Agriculture Coalition (SUAC).
