You’ve probably been kicking yourself because you missed Jake’s Beer Festival last spring. Jake’s, as you know, is a festival created by the folks at Loews Royal Pacific Resort especially for beer lovers. If you didn’t make it to the last one, don’t be so hard on yourself, we all make mistakes.
And every now and then you get a second chance. Which is good news for you because Jake’s Beer Festival happens twice each year, spring and fall. And oh, hey look — it’s fall. The the autumnal fest is Friday, Oct. 5, from 6:30 to 9 p.m. at Loews Royal Pacific Resort at Universal Orlando.
Jake’s Beer Fest features more than 50 local and regional craft beers for you to quaff. There’s also food, because you shouldn’t quaff on an empty stomach, and there’s entertainment, too, because this is a festival, dammit.
Tickets are $45 plus tax for regular admission and $55 for VIP, which gets you a few extras. Either way, you’ll have good beer and a good time. Click this link to purchase your tickets.
