(Miami, FL) — The fifth-annual WakeFest Invitational & Anniversary Celebration will take place at Mana Wynwood this Saturday, February 15, 2020, from noon to 5:00 p.m. Dubbed one of the “ten-best beer festivals in America” by the readers of USA Today and by the editorial team at Men’s Journal. Over 130 independently-owned craft breweries from across the US, Canada and Europe are expected to pour, including roughy one-third of the top 100 craft brewers in the world from RateBeer’s annual list. Almost all of the breweries are from out-of-state or out of the country and have been individually selected and invited by the JWB team.
Many of the brewers pouring at WakeFest only come to South Florida once a year, specifically to pour at this festival. Over 2,500 craft beer lovers attended this year’s WakeFest, many traveling to Miami, just for the event.
“We’re thrilled at how much WakeFest has grown over the past four years and we are looking forward to making the fifth one even bigger and better. It’s really the only opportunity for craft beer lovers in South Florida to sample the incredible beer that is being made by independent brewers across the country and in Europe. We are so proud to be able to bring it here to our own backyard.” said JWB founder and owner, Johnathan Wakefield.
