The social drinking event of the season, Sprung! Spring Beer Festival will bring its beer-tasting event to the Wynwood Marketplace on April 7, 2018. The festival, which has changed locations from the usual RC Cola Plant due to space, will be featuring over 300 craft beers and over 150 local, national and international breweries for beer fans to discover.

This year, Sprung! has announced its first-ever #Sprung Games. A type of beer Olympics, attendees can indulge in a little sport to compete in games like beer pong, flip cup, and cornhole for the chance to redeem the ultimate prize: a brand-new Master Touch GBS from Weber Grills.


In the middle of Wynwood Marketplace, spectators can catch two wrestlers battle it out in the ring during #SprungBrawl, a smackdown courtesy of Independent Championship Wrestling. Contender Maxx Stardom will battle TNA Superstar Samuel Shaw; in addition, there will be other matches, including a women’s match.

The festival will feature unlimited free craft beer samples, live music, and a variety of food trucks perched on-site for guests to get a bite to eat. The Kitchen Lab will provide cooking demos and samplings from Florida chefs so that attendees can learn to experiment with different beer and food pairings. Guests may also hang out at the Cigar Lounge for a smoke with their newly found favorite beer. For a dose of shopping and rare finds, the Thrifter Market will feature local artisan-crafted goods and artworks.

Guests may also bring along their pooches as the 80,000-square-foot (7,432-square-meter) location will also hold a dog park.
