Miracle’s Festival of Beers January 8, 2007

Posted by grhomeboy in Drinks & Beverages.

Coirm, Pito, Sor, Zithos. No matter how you say it beer is a word that is understood around the world. From Ireland to Greece, Miracle Baseball will give Southwest Florida a chance to taste some of the finest beers from around the world at the third annual Ballpark Festival of Beers at Hammond Stadium.

On Saturday, January 27, over 35 different types of beer will quench the taste buds of even the most die hard beer drinker. From 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., for just $20, patrons will receive 20 sampling tickets, each good for a four ounce taste of their favorite beer and the first 350 people will receive a commemorative sampling glass presented by Shoeless Joe’s Sports Café. They will also receive tickets good for the Best of the Ballpark Wing Contest, with local restaurants such as Mr. Burro, Stoney’s, Potts Sports Café and many more participating restaurants.

Along with great beers and wings, the entertainment is sure to bring the house down with the rocking sounds of Vintage Vinyl. Cigars of Ybor will offer a cigar rolling station for those who enjoy the finer tastes of tobacco.

The Ballpark Festival of Beers is a 21 and over event. Kids, babies in strollers and anyone under the age of 21 will not be allowed into the event. Tickets can be purchased in advance by calling the Miracle office at (239) 768-4210 or on the evening of the event.

Editor’s Note > Zithos is the Greek, scientific, word for beer. Or in plain modern Greek you can also call it “beera” (pronounced as “bee-ra”).
