The Alliance for the Arts is excited to announce the return of its annual fundraiser Arts On Tap on Saturday, Oct. 20 on the Alliance campus at 10091 McGregor Blvd. Fort Myers, FL 33919 from 7 – 10 p.m. Arts On Tap, now in its second year, is a taste of creativity in the Alliance gallery featuring the craft of local brewers benefiting the Alliance for the Arts.
Participating crafters include Big Blue Brewing, Bury Me Brewing, Coastal Dayz Brewery, Eight Foot Brewing, Fort Myers Brewing Company, Momentum Brewhouse, Palm City Brewing, Point Ybel Brewing Company and Scotty’s Bierwerks and culinary creations from Cristof’s and University Grill. For one night only, guests can delight their senses with locally-handcrafted beers, hand-selected wines and culinary creations against a vibrant backdrop of local art, our Dia de los Muertos Exhibit. The event also features two new brews from creative collaborations between the Alliance and award-winning brewmasters from Palm City and Point Ybel.
“The Alliance for the Arts is all about supporting small, independent makers who have a story,” says development and marketing director Jessica Wisdom. “We’re excited to celebrate the art of craft beer for the second year in a row. In our never-ending quest to outdo ourselves, this year’s event will be bigger and better with more art, more food, more fun and of course more beer!”
