UPDATE: As of Wednesday morning, Brews by the Bay is SOLD OUT! But you still have time to enter top win until 11 p.m. Wednesday.

Explore a coral reef; step inside a Madagascar rainforest; experience the smooth touch of a sting ray (two fingers only, please); sample native food and beer. All of this and more could be yours at the Florida Aquarium's Brews by the Bay Beer and Food Festival

Friday, October 16 from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m., the Florida Aquarium is opening its doors for Tampa's fishiest beer fest (it's a good thing, I promise). The exhibits will be open, allowing guests the opportunity to come face to face with a sand tiger shark with their favorite brew in hand. 

There's also a promise of up-close animal encounters, which, if you're lucky, means a chance to hang with a pair of delightful penguins in an acrylic wagon. 

General admission tickets are $50 in advance, but we've got a pair of tickets to give away to one lucky winner.


Hurry up and enter! You only have until Wednesday at 11 p.m. to enter. The winner will be announced on Thursday, October 15.
