Hey beer-lovers with too-tight gray suits and red bow ties in your drawers: we've got an event for you. This summer, the historic Tampa Theatre is throwing a "Pee-wee Herman" themed beer festival with more than half-a-dozen of Tampa Bay's best breweries.

Tickets to Tampa Theatre's "Pee-Wee's Beer Adventure" happening on Saturday, July 30 go on sale Monday, June 13 and start at $55. Limited premium sampling is available for a small upcharge, and ticket prices go up on the day but the event almost alway sells out.

The event—set for 7 p.m.-10 p.m. at 711 N Franklin St.—will feature samples from breweries and restaurants listed below, and a press release more are set to join in.
  • Coppertail Brewing Co.
  • Florida Avenue Brewing Co.
  • Gretchen’s Goodies
  • The Independent Bar and Cafe
  • Magnanimous Brewing
  • Motorworks Brewing
  • New World Brewery
  • On the Go Gourmet
  • Shuffle
  • Woven Water Brewing Company
Monies raised go towards educational and community programs at Tampa Theatre, plus continued preservation of the local landmark that escaped demolition in the '70s.

Pee-wee Herman cosplay is encouraged, just don't do the Paul Reuben at the movies bit, OK?
