Halfway There 2015

Halfway There 2015

For the third year in a row, Tampa Bay Beer Week presents Halfway There: A Rare Beer Festival. For 2015, we are heading back across the Bay and into Ybor City, taking over the historic Cuban Club for an evening a beery bliss.

If you attended in 2013 or 2014, you know what an amazing festival this has turned in to. In fact, we have been nominated for Creative Loafing’s “Best Beer Festival” in their Best of the Bay edition (go vote here!).

So what is Halfway There? It is a beer festival featuring rare and one-off beers from your favorite local breweries and breweries around the globe. Beers you have most likely never had, and some you may never have again. This event is not run by a single brewery, a distributor, or anyone else. It is put on by Tampa Bay Beer Week to celebrate beer culture in Tampa Bay. You do not want to miss this festival. Trust me.
