Wine World to Launch Destin’s Premiere Annual Craft Beer & Bourbon Festival

“Destin Crafted at Henderson Beach Resort & Spa”

DESTIN, Fla. (August 7, 2018) – Originating as the Destin Beer Festival hosted by Wine World in the parking lot at Paradise Key, this fundraising event has become legend in the Destin community. Now, having outgrown their parking lot setting, Wine World has teamed up with The Henderson Beach Resort & Spa to host this elevated tasting event to raise funds for Children in Crisis.

“Wine World is honored that the team at Henderson Beach Resort joins us in giving back to our community. We are so pleased to welcome them into this community and host an event on their beautiful property. The setting will elevate the whole experience!” –Chan Cox, Wine World, Owner & Founder

The event dons a new name (and hashtag): Destin Crafted, but all the favorite elements of Wine World’s past fests will still be intact. The event, held on Saturday November 3rdfrom 1:00pm til 4:00pm, will feature over 50 premium craft beers and small-batch bourbon for guests to sample alongside hand-crafted foods prepared by some of Destin’s top dining establishments. Guests will enjoy all of this on the spacious and luxurious pool deck and green area at Henderson Beach Resort & Spa.

“The name change illustrates many things, but above all: it’s not just about the beer! This fest is immersive in the “craft” culture, and that includes small-batch bourbon and from-scratch food just as much as craft beer.” –Fontella Hardman, Wine World, Marketing & Event Coordinator
