On Saturday, June 24 from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m., the Tampa Theatre will host BeerFest 2017: Barley’s Angels as its 6th (almost) Annual Beer Festival and Fundraiser.
BeerFest 2017: Barley’s Angels arrives as the sixth installment in the Tampa Theatre’s series of themed, tongue-in-cheek beer festivals that feature local craft brews and samples from some of Tampa’s top independent restaurants in a fun, theatrical environment. Although the theme may sound a bit silly, it is all done for the very worthy cause of benefiting the historic Tampa Theatre’s “artistic, educational and community programs, as well as its ongoing preservation and restoration.” There are quite a few details to go over when it comes to this festival, so let’s break it all down.
- What – BeerFest 2017 – Barley’s Angels
- When – 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. on Saturday, June 24
- Where – Tampa Theatre: 711 N Franklin Street, Tampa, FL
Barley’s Angels – “Evil villainess Hoppy vonKeggers is trying to steal all the beer at BeerFest 2017, hell-bent on rounding up recipes and creating her own ULTIMATE microbrewery. Luckily, the captivating crime-fighting trio of Amber, Blondie, and Honey – known to their foes as “Barley’s Angels” – are working alongside their ever-faithful assistant, Beersley, to stop vonKeggers and keep the community’s craft brews safe and sudsy for Tampa Theatre patrons to sample.”
The Barley’s Angels – Amber, Blondie, Honey – and other entertainers, courtesy of Busch Gardens, will be in attendance during the beer festival. Guests are invited and encouraged “to get in the spirit by dressing as their favorite Charlie’s Angels character or in a costume inspired by the movie.”
