Beer Can and BBQ Beach Picnic!

That was so much fun, let's do it again!

Siesta Key Public Beach picnic area. BYOBC. I highly recommend Total Wine on University for a great selection of Craft Cans. But you can usually even get some nice stuff at ABC or Publix.  Our group has grown exponentially since that first event and so has the selection of great beer in a can.  Be prepared to trade cold cans so we can all have a good variety.

So here is the deal:  We will take over some picnic tables and grills.  Bring whatever you want for the picnic.  There will be plenty of us around who will grill for you if you want or do it yourself.  I will have plenty of charcoal, napkins, plates and plasticware. Side dishes to share are appreciated!

We are going to have cornhole and a couple other games.  Please let me know if you can bring any beach games.  Extra cornholes appreciated!  There is a playground so you can even bring the youngins if you want.

If you want to avoid parking issues and the breathalizer, SCAT runs a bus right to the public beach and you can park at the mall on Siesta Drive or at the Sarasota Pavillion.

No excuses, come on out and celebrate the diverse group of friends that we have made sharing our common interest of great beer!

 

Cheers and Better Beers,

Jim

    I'm trying to pick out a good beer to bring. What do you guys suggest? I have a suspicion that Dogfish Head IPA does not come in cans.

      Just pick something you would like to try. You can always trade and sample other's selections. We all like to try new and different beer.

      There are a variety of good IPAs in cans. Avery and Anderson Valley to name a couple you can usually get at Total Wine. Cigar City Jai Alai is available in most publix.
