Free Beer Tasting Tonight in The Grove: Win a VIP Package

You know that whole Midwest market on beer thing? Forget it, because some great beers are coming out of Florida and there's more on the way. Duh!

Which is probably why Tony Albelo, the man behind Grovetoberfest and the new Spring Break extravaganza, Sprung, has dubbed tonight's beer tasting: Flori-Duh!

Tonight from 6 to 8 p.m. The Grove Spot will be hosting an exclusive free tasting of 10 different brews from Cigar City, Inlet, and more. All of the beers come from Florida with the exception of Michael's Genuine Home Brew, which is brewed in Alabama with product from Florida.

So what's the catch with this free beer stuff? Well, the tasting is limited to the first 50 people (which is a good reason to not stay late at the office tonight), with the first 20 people rewarded with a free pint glass.
