A Galaxy Far, Far Away: Winter Haven’s Star Wars-Themed Craft Beer Crawl

Calling all Rebels and Imperial loyalists! It’s time to dust off your lightsabers and get ready for Winter Haven’s craft beer crawl with a Star Wars twist. The event is a collaboration between some of the area’s best breweries and promises to be a day of out-of-this-world fun and, of course, great craft beer.

The Details

The crawl is set to take place on Saturday, May 4th, which just so happens to be Star Wars Day (May the Fourth Be With You). Coincidence? We think not! The festivities will start at 1 pm and continue until 5 pm. For those not familiar with a craft beer crawl, it’s a walking tour of the breweries in Winter Haven that are participating in the event, where you can sample various craft beers and chat with local brewers.

The participating breweries include Grove Roots Brewing Co., Central Florida Brewers Guild, and the Brew Hub. Each brewery will put their own spin on the event, with unique Star Wars-themed decorations and surprises. There will also be food vendors on-site for when you need to refuel.

The Beer

Speaking of refueling, let’s talk about the beer. The breweries have all agreed to create special Star Wars-inspired brews just for the event. Grove Roots Brewing Co. will feature the “Wookiee Brown Ale,” Central Florida Brewers Guild will have the “Jedi Juice IPA,” and the Brew Hub will serve up the “Tatooine Sunset Wheat Ale.” And those are just a few of the options available.

If you’re really into beer and Star Wars, you can purchase a tasting glass for $20, which will get you 5 oz pours at each brewery, or you can purchase individual pours at each location. And don’t worry, there will be non-alcoholic options available as well for those who don’t imbibe or want to bring the young Padawans along.

The Experience

There’s just something about a good themed event that makes it more memorable, and this is no exception. Whether you’re a die-hard Star Wars fan or just someone who enjoys a good craft beer, this crawl promises to be an unforgettable experience.

But it’s not just about the beer and the Star Wars decorations. It’s also a chance to explore local breweries and meet the people behind the beer. It’s a chance to connect with other Winter Haven residents and bond over a shared love of craft beer. And of course, it’s a chance to geek out over all things Star Wars.

In summary

So grab your lightsabers and rally your fellow Rebels or Imperials for Winter Haven’s craft beer crawl with a Star Wars twist. May the Fourth be with you!
