Flight or Fun at the 6th Annual Destin Beer Festival!

Fall is the time for changing leaves, pumpkin spice everything, and my personal favorite... BEER! Germans honor the hops-flavored beverage with Oktoberfest, a month-long festival of libations new and old. In Destin, FL, beer-lovers celebrate the foamy beverage with the annual "Destin Beer Festival"! Now in its 6th year, this highly anticipated event celebrates all things alcohol, with craft beers at the forefront. The event was originally organized as a way to enjoy food, drinks, and live entertainment, while raising money for local charities. In 2014, the sold-out 5th Annual Destin Beer Fest attracted over 1200 attendees, and hosted over 40 local and nationally recognized brewers/distillers. 2015 is expected to bring in more guests, more vendors, and even hotter entertainment than ever before, with proceeds going to Children in Crisis & The Emerald Coast Autism Center!
