It’s time to prepare for this year’s St. Augustine Brewers’ Festival. You don’t want to miss a full day of fantastic food, lovely live music, and of course, delicious craft beer. There’s nothing like feeling apart of the crowd while enjoying the warm Florida sun with an ice cold beer in hand. And, if you need a place to stay within walking distance of the event, make Victorian House Bed & Breakfast your home base! Not only are we near the festival venue, but we’re also steps away from the St. Augustine’s historic downtown. And, what’s even better, our bike rentals help you get to where you’re going all the more quickly.

All Your Questions About the St. Augustine Brewers’ Festival, Answered.
What Can I Expect at the Event?
This festival features over twenty-five local and small-batch, regional breweries. These are just a few brands you can sip on, but there are so many more to come!
BOG Brewing Company
Dog Rose Brewing Co.
Old Coast Ales
Ancient City Brewing Co.
Infinite Ale Works
But what’s a festival without food and music? Pair your cocktails with some treats at delicious food trucks like Weenie Panini and Wingin’ It while listening to live tunes by local performers. And, if you’re bringing children along, they’ll have a blast in the family-friendly “kid zone” complete with bouncy houses and face painting. There’s really something for everyone here!
When Is It?
The Brewers’ festival is held annually every May from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. This is one of the perfect times to host St. Augustine events because it comes just before the Floria summertime heat.
Where Is It?
The Fountain of Youth Archeological Park is the best venue to host the event! The vast, natural landscape contains plenty of space to set up tasting booths and food trucks while still providing plenty of walking room and sitting areas. This venue also offers on-site parking, but there’s limited availability. However, if you stay at Victorian House Bed & Breakfast, you won’t have to worry about fighting for a spot by taking a quick walk or bike ride over to the park!
How Much Does it Cost?
Purchase your ticket in advance for $40, or grab one at the door for 45 dollars. After this initial fee, you can sample any of the craft beer. Or, upgrade and become a VIP for 100 dollars. This ticket guarantees on-site parking, provides you with a lunch buffet, an exclusive bourbon tasting from St. Augustine Distillery, access to an air-conditioned pavilion, private restrooms, and even a souvineer festival tasting glass!
What Does the Event Support?
While a large part of the event is to provide patrons with delicious beer, it is also benefitting the St. Augustine Lighthouse and Maritime Museum. This non-profit aims to preserve and tell the stories of the nation’s oldest port. Visit the festival to show your support!
