Gulf Brew hosts over 3,000 guests and receives incredible sponsorship from local business. Celebrating its 10 year anniversary, we're adding more bands, more hours, and of course, more brew than 2016. Gulf Brew 2017 goers can expect over 200 beers, 100 more than in previous years, three bands, and an optional, but suggested, VIP Tasting Event an hour before the festival officially opens. In 2016, AcA moved Gulf Brew back to the summer and inside of Blackham Coliseum. Proving to be "Christmas in July" for beer lovers, the event is staying inside of the air-conditioned venue with events like the "Home Brew Demo" happening outside, spreading the layout for more beer drinkers to enjoy.
