Fort Lauderdale, August 25, 2022 – In 2022 the FemAle Brew fest will feature five out-of-state breweries and a boozy tea and as it enters its sixth year, continues to be one of the largest gatherings of women in brewing at a craft beer festival in the country. It will take place at the 96-room Kimpton Goodland – Fort Lauderdale Beach from 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm against a backdrop of secluded courtyards and a rooftop pool with Intracoastal views.
Out-of-State Breweries flying in for the festival include Ten Eyck Brewing Company (Queenstown, MD), Allagash Brewing Company (Portland, ME), Austin Street Brewery (Portland, ME), Necromancer Brewing (Pittsburgh, PA), and Ever Grain Brewing Co.

The festival will also feature twenty (20) breweries from areas outside of Broward County, including Tampa, Palmetto, Orlando, St. Petersburg, Bradenton, Oviedo, Sanford, Wesley Chapel, DeLand, Key West, Boca Raton, Hialeah, and Doral.
Since 2017, the festival has made Broward County an annual gathering place for women in brewing, highlighting, and featuring female beer experts and brewers in the beer industry while offering attendees an opportunity to learn about and taste the different types of beers brewed by them. It has also been a place for female beer experts to discuss their challenges and successes and give encouragement to others already in the industry or those interested in getting into brewing.
FemAle Brew Fest will once again be pet-friendly and donate a portion of proceeds to Abandoned Pet Rescue (APR). The Kimpton Goodland is pet-friendly and has no restrictions on types or size, which means pet owners can bring their fur babies with them to join in on the fun.
The festival currently has 34 confirmed breweries and will see the return of its resident Dj LaTrice Perry and other female musicians to be announced. 2022 Festival sponsors include Country Malt Group, University of South Florida – Brewing Arts and Choose954.
