San Marco Merchants celebrate success of Inaugural Beer Fest
The San Marco community and visitors alike enjoyed a beautiful, sunny and sudsy afternoon in the San Marco Square. Friends Mary Claire Boline, Hannah Pataky, Ellie Boline, Emily Scott, pup Annie and Kelsey Hendricks felt right at home in their local community enjoying the cooler, beautiful weather during the first take of the San Marco Beer Fest, held Saturday, March 26.

Lovers of all things San Marco, those that enjoy craft beer, and those seeking a great Saturday outing were in for a treat as patrons packed the San Marco Square to enjoy the inaugural San Marco Beer Fest.       

The Spring weather was the charm as 20 local breweries brought their finest bubbles and craft suds to the day’s fundraising event, which was held Sat., March 26. There wasn’t a drop of rain in sight and cooler temps prevailed, helping to make the inaugural event a smashing success.

The San Marco Merchants Association, under the leadership of Scott Wohlers as President, has kicked off what many hope will be an annual affair in the Square after the strong showing and launch of the Beer Fest.

Beef Fest plans were first pitched as Wohlers engaged Aardwolf Brewing owner, Preben Olson, at an Aardwolf Brewing ‘Tealgate’ event during the last NFL season. Following the idea session, the festival gained traction and assistance on many fronts, from the vendors, to the merchants, and sponsors as well.

From families playing cornhole, to visitors driving in from Nocatee and the furthe reaches of the beaches; over 500 patrons came out seeking a great time with friends, fellow merchants and sponsors, vendors and business associates.

The San Marco Merchants Association, in conjunction with Aardwolf Berwing, thanked its many sponsors and its lead, Incipit of Florida, LLC., alongside the Beer Fest Committee, vendors and volunteers.

Proceeds from the Beer Fest will be invested back into the community for the furtherance of beautification and future event production. The goal of the San Marco Merchants Association is to enhance quality of life for residents and merchants in the San Marco area.
