VERO BEACH — The 8th Annual Florida Craft Brew and Wingfest will be Saturday Feb. 16th on Royal Palm Pointe. Sunrise Rotary Vero Beach hosts this fundraiser each year to raise money for all the local charities they support.

In 2018, over 14,000 people made their way to the festival. Co-chairs of the 8th Annual Florida Craft Brew and Wingfest, Kevin Rollin and Ray Hooker, spoke about what to look forward to, “This is a craft beer tasting with over 200 beers to taste including local home brewers and craft breweries. There are 19-20 wing cookers vying for Vero’s Best Wings. A stage at each end of the venue hosts two bands including Slip and the Spin outs, Humdingers, SoulJam and Blue Cypress Bluegrass. Non-craft beer drinkers will find drafts, water and soda.”
