Even though Tampa Bay Beer Week wrapped last month, two local breweries are keeping the spirit going with a collaborative, lager-centric event.

Greetings from Florida—happening on Saturday, April 29 at Ybor City Museum State Park—will showcase some of the best and crispiest lagers in the entire country. Dozens of craft breweries from across the U.S. will pour their prized brews at next weekend's lager party.

Tickets run for $65 and include a commemorative glass and unlimited pours of 60+ lagers on tap. Guests are invited to wear their best Hawaiian shirts to give these out-of-town breweries their best Sunshine State welcome, too.

Ybor City Museum State Park is located at 1818 E 9th Ave.—a short walk away from other breweries like BarrieHaus, Zydeco Brew Werks and Tampa Bay Brewing Co.

A few out-of-town breweries that we can expect at Greetings from Florida include Kansas City's Alma Mader, California-based Bagby Beer Co., South Carolina's Birds Fly South Ale Project,  Jack's Abby Craft Lagers from Massachusetts, alongside many more.

At last year's World Beer Cup,  BarrieHaus—which appeared on the WMNF 88.5-FM public affairs program WaveMakers today—took home the gold medal for its Family Tradition Vienna lager, a prized brew that's hopefully available at next week's celebration.
This is Green Bench and BarrieHaus' second installment of Greetings from Florida, which is hopefully an annual tradition for the two popular Tampa Bay breweries.
