Fort Myers Brewing Company is celebrating its seventh anniversary with a four-day family-friendly festival featuring more than 50 specialty craft beers, 12 local food trucks, seven performers and a friendly-but-competitive beer mile.

Fort Myers Brewing’s Anniversary Party will be held Thursday, Feb. 27 through Sunday, March 1 at Fort Myers Brewing Company, 12811 Commerce Lakes Drive, Suite 28, in Fort Myers.

More than 50 flavorful craft beers will be on tap, including Fort Myers Brewing’s Anniversary IPA, a tropical IPA brewed with mandarina bavaria, mosaic and vic secret hops. The specialty beer will be poured all weekend long and sold in 16-ounce four-packs beginning Feb. 27.

Foodie favorites will be dished up throughout the weekend from 12 local food trucks, including The Nosh Truck, Rollin’ Raw Bar and Wicked Streatery. Seven local bands and musicians will take the stage over the four-day event, including Ben Allen Band, Soulixer and Them Hamilton Boys.

The ultimate sporting event for beer lovers, Fort Myers Brewing’s anniversary Beer Mile begins at 1 p.m. on March 1. The rules are simple: Drink a beer. Run one-fourth of a mile. Repeat three more times. Try not to fall down.
