WakeFest 2017 Announced; VIP Tix – Like Alderaan – Gone Almost Instantly

Last years Wakestock, the first anniversary party for J Wakefield Brewing in Miami, had its fair share of awesome beer and terrible weather. Here’s hoping that this years WakeFest 2017 remains calm, cool, and collected. It’s going down on February 18 and features unlimited beers for $75 a ticket.

What you see pictured, however, is the line that formed to get a limited collection of 50 VIP tickets ($250 a piece) that would offer up unlimited beer, food, some sweet ass bottles, and some other benefits.

The whole press release for the event is below…

On Saturday, February 18, 2017, J. Wakefield Brewing will celebrate its second anniversary with WakeFest 2017, at Mana Wynwood (318 NW 23rd Street). WakeFest 2017 will be the largest craft beer festival ever in Wynwood with over 70 local, national and international craft breweries pouring their signature creations. This will be the first time that many of these beers will be available in the State of Florida. In addition, J. Wakefield Brewing will be pouring nearly 30 of its own beers on draught. There will also be a large collection of specialty bottles for sale.

What’s great beer without food? An array of South Florida’s most-popular food trucks will be on hand, as well as a few local chefs.

JWB’s resident DJ, DJ Popeye, will be performing live throughout the afternoon.

The event will run from noon until 5:00PM for general admission ticket holders. VIP ticket holders will have exclusive access from 11AM-Noon.

JWB sold 50 VIP tickets in their tap room on Tuesday, to provide their most loyal customers an opportunity to purchase their VIP tickets before online sales began today. The first customer lined up at 1:00AM and the 50 tickets were sold the moment the doors opened at noon. Similarly, VIP tickets which went on sale today at noon, online, sold out in about two minutes.
