ST. PETERSBURG – The fourth annual Liquid Desires Craft Beer Party is Saturday, Aug. 23, 8 to 11 p.m., at the Dali Museum, One Dali Boulevard, St. Petersburg.
General admission tickets are $50 a person. VIP Tickets are priced at $85 a person. Call 823-3767 or visit TheDali.org/liquid.
The Dali’s Zodiac Membership Committee hosts the popular fundraising event. The committee is a dedicated group of members committed to helping the museum engage the community and expand its reach.
The fourth annual Liquid Desires Craft Beer Party will celebrate Florida breweries and other unique craft brews with a vibe mirroring Dali’s fascination with double images, in celebration of the new exhibit, Marvels of Illusion.
Attendees will sample a wide variety of craft beers and have access to the brewers themselves. Food samples from trendy local eateries will be served. The event also includes dancing.
“The museum prides itself on delighting our guests, with all-things inspired by Dali himself,” said Kathy Greif, Dali marketing director. “This craft beer event is more than a tasting – it’s a party!”
This year’s event brings together locally and nationally renowned craft breweries including Cigar City Brewing Co., Duvel Moortgat, Green Bench Brewing Co., JDub’s Brewing Co., Rapp Brewing Co., St. Pete Brewing Co., Three Palms Brewing Co., and many more.
“Everyone at Coppertail Brewing Co. is especially excited about this event,” said Kent Bailey, president and founder of Coppertail Brewing Co., opening in Ybor City this summer. “Imagine feasting your eyes on an amazing Dali painting while the lush flavors of local craft beer play across your palette. That’s hedonism at its finest!”
General admission tickets include unlimited beer and food tastings, a commemorative tasting glass, giveaways from participating vendors, a raffle with hotel stays and more, free valet parking plus full access to the permanent collection and special exhibition galleries.
A limited number of VIP tickets include early access to the party at 7 p.m., swag bags, exclusive small batch tastings and a special presentation by three esteemed craft beer aficionados, including Joey Redner, owner of Cigar City Brewing Co.; Tom Williams, co-owner of St. Pete Brewing Co.; and Jeremy Joerger, owner of JDub’s Brewery Co.
