Searching for a new quarantine style date idea? Look no further than the 9th annual Tampa Theatre Virtual Beerfest to be held on August 8th at 6:00 p.m. Keeping in tradition by having a theme, this event will hold the theme Groundhop Day in order to honor the classic film Groundhog Day.
Due to the current climate in our state Tampa Theatre decided that if you couldn’t come in person, they were going to bring the experience to you. Starting by packaging up a 12 pack of bottles and cans, Tampa Theatre popcorn, two tasting glasses and a few other surprises, these boxes will start at $55 for their grand sampling box and $75 for their premium box, (hint: this one features higher-end brews).
Before you pick up your boxes, the Tampa Theatre team is also designing a scavenger hunt across downtown Tampa in order to work up a thirst as you look for clues and experience sights on foot before returning back to the theatre itself.
The night of the event, hop onto Facebook at 6 p.m. to watch the welcome from Tampa Theatre president and CEO John Bell while also enjoying the live music from Ronnie Dee & the Superstars. At 7 p.m. tune into the panel of local brewmasters who will discuss the brewer process while also answering questions on the stream. Lastly, at 7:45 p.m. settle in for a Netflix showing of Groundhog Day.
While the event itself maintains a light and fun atmosphere the purpose is still serious. This annual event benefits historic landmark’s artistic, educational, and community programs while also helping with its preservation. As a result of COVID-19, the unstable financial situation has put a strain on non-profit organizations around the area so this event is more important than ever.
