When the ancient Egyptians were developing hieroglyphics and building pyramids, they were also quenching their thirst with beer. The brewing process dates back that far. Long after mead has faded into Renaissance fair obscurity, beer will live on in the hearts of hops lovers worldwide. And just about every nation thinks its ale is best. Germans make a strong case, though American breweries have made major inroads into creating quality quaffs. And Spanish suds are nothing to sneeze at, either. Drink em all today at El Festival de Cerveza. Imbibe brewskis from all over the world, enjoy delicious food made with the golden liquid, and take your beer goggles off for the wet T shirt contest. Say it with us, people klassy! After the raunchy competition, dance to reggaeton, rock, and salsa music by the likes of Dantes, Henry Miguel, Pablo Alejandro, and Cuban salsa superstar Rey Ruiz. The intoxicating action begins at 11:00 a.m. at Bayfront Park Amphitheater. Admission is $20. Call 305-551-4424, or visit www.gatemediavisual.com.
