Sprung Beer Festival 2014: A Perfect Day for Beer (Photos)

With mid-70s temperatures and blue skies, you couldn't have asked for a better day to drink beer and enjoy music with friends. Coconut Grove's Peacock Park was the setting for Sprung!, the outdoor festival that celebrates spring beer in a playful way.

With thousands of people sampling 150 brews and playing giant Jenga, the scene resembled a sprawling summer camp -- with beer. Local brewers showcased new and exciting brews while fans sipped and sampled, proving once again that Miami loves its suds.
