Rescheduled 2021 Tallahassee Beer Festival set for Sunday

Rescheduled 2021 Tallahassee Beer Festival set for Sunday

Now, more than 2 1/2 months later — with new cases in a steep decline — going forward with the 3rd annual event at 3 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 7, at the Donald L. Tucker Civic Center is being met with the same type of reaction.

And the Tallahassee Beer Festival — North Florida's biggest craft beer event of every calendar year since 2019 — is a big part of that return to normalcy.
