Time to get a little tipsy and explore the exhibits at The Florida Aquarium during Brews By The Bay. The fundraising event supports the Aquarium which acts as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.

Guests of BBTB must be 21 and up, so make sure to call your babysitter.

On Friday, October 11, from 8-11 p.m., attendees can snag unlimited samples of craft and import beer while enjoying full access to exhibits. Just in case you need a little sustenance, Tampa Bay restaurants are clocking in to supply bites that'll keep you going so you don’t miss out on the penguins. 

Oh, and a silent disco is happening on the rooftop — this is no joke, people.

General admission is $69 and includes at 5-ounce tasting stein, unlimited beer and food tastings, as well as live entertainment. VIP attendees who pay $85 to get in enjoy early admission and an 8-ounce stein.

By the way, Aquarium Member’s get $10 off GA tickets plus free parking. Parking for non-members is $10, but ridesharing might be your best move. After the event wraps up at 11 p.m., scoot around Channelside — just make sure to tip your sitter extra. More information and tickets are available via flaquarium.org.
