Starting at 2 p.m. Saturday, two downtown St. Pete events, one driven by gardening and the other by farming, will coincide with each other at The Ale and the Witch.
During the free Roots Seed and Plant Share, the public is set to offer up plants and seeds to swap in the craft beer bar's courtyard. Those without items to contribute are encouraged to take a few seeds or plants for their garden, then save something to bring to the next share.
The all-ages gathering is open to pooches, and live music and a complimentary raffle will also be highlighted.
Meanwhile, the Soils to Suds event will pay homage to farmers who grow and cultivate the ingredients brewmasters use to make beer. Special brews from Darwin Brewing Co., including the Mango Summadayze IPA, Lemon Grass Pirata Pilsner and Chocolate Covered Cherry Llama Mama Milk Stout, will be featured on tap.
The bar plans to have $3 Darwin cans on hand as well, and a selection of food items, served at the upstairs Witches BBQ Den as early as 3 p.m., will be inflected with the beer. Circa 1926 Tangerine Wheat shrimp tacos and bread pudding that calls for the Bourbon Barrel Aged Ayawasca Belgian Dubbel are among the options.
