3rd Annual Foeder for Thought
Foeder for Thought is a celebration of oak fermentation. This is one of the most unique and intimate festivals during Tampa Bay Beer Week offering beer to sample from across the country.
On Friday, March 11th (the day before Hunahpu's Day 2016) from 5pm till close we'll be offering unlimited samples of oak fermented craft beer on draft and in bottle format. We'll have a food truck on site, and music spinning all night, featuring beers from: Jester King Brewery, Almanac Beer Co, New Belgium, Jolly Pumpkin, Fonta Flora, Side Project Brewing, Crooked Stave, Wicked Weed and many more! A schedule of special tapping times and a full list of beers will be available as we get closer to the event.
In addition, we'll have owners and brewers from across the U.S. in attendance for special Q&A sessions each hour. Don't miss out!
Foeder for Thought was an event built around education. Every year we see more and more locals appreciating Oak Fermented Farmhouse Ales/Wild/Sour brands and we like to think that events like Foeder for Thought are helping that cause. Each year we try and push the complexity of the tap list and the depth of the education aspect so that every year you're learning something new. This year we're setting up a live, hourly interview/Q&A with the owners/brewers of some of the featured breweries, hosted by Marco of The Craft Commander.
During the 6 PM hour we will be tapping beers from Yazoo's Embrace the Funk series and we'll have an interview/Q&A with Brandon Jones, who runs their sour program and is the Founder of Embrace the Funk.
During the 7 PM hour we'll be tapping brands from Almanac and we'll have Jessie Friedman, the Founder and Brewmaster of Almanac, available for an interview/Q&A.
During the 8 PM hour we'll be tapping brands from Jester King, and we'll have Jeffery Stuffings, Ron Extract, and their whole crew available for a live interview/Q&A.
During the 9 PM hour we'll be highlighting Fonta Flora, where Todd Boera will have an interview/Q&A, dropping dope knowledge.
Lastly, during the 10 PM hour we'll be tapping into Side Project, and we'll have Cory King, Fonder/Brewer, available for a live interview/Q&A.
The hope is that this will provide those interested an opportunity to try the beers with the creators of the brands/breweries and learn from them the who, what, why and how of what they're doing. You get to hang out with the people that made these beers! And you get to experience, directly from them, their passion for these kinds of beers.
Oh, and don't think we forgot about the 5 PM and 11 PM blocks! Some very special tappings are planned during those hours, and there are lots of other great breweries that will be represented at our third annual Foeder for Thought. Can't wait to see you there!
