Seltzerland Chicago

In celebration of bubbly booze and slightly cooler weather, a new socially-distant hard seltzer festival is coming to Tampa next month.

On Oct. 10, the Westchase Golf Club will transform into Seltzerland, a hard seltzer festival spread out over nine holes for golf-less and contactless day drinking.

Essentially, the entire festival is set up for social distancing. Each “drinking crew” will sign up for a time slot, and walk the fairways for hard seltzer tasting, food, photo opps, live music and games. Groups can be up to 10 people, and “tee times” are every 10 minutes. In total, Seltzerland lasts about two-and-a-half hours for each group. 

“As the weather became nicer, I, as a consumer, just wanted to get outside and have a drink with my friends while being safe,” said Cannonball Productions CEO & Founder Kate Levenstien in a news release. “What better place to do that than on an open, outdoor, sprawling, and gorgeous golf course? With courses around the country open to the public and tee times available to manage check-in, it is the safest venue and structure for in-person events. We know this experience will provide a safe opportunity to have some much-needed fun and we’re so excited to bring Seltzerland to life.”

Tickets start at $29 and VIP, which includes “premier timeslots,” a full-sized can of hard seltzer, a specialty cocktail, free food and parking, starts at $59.
