Barleybrine Oyster & Craft Beer Weekend

Downtown Pensacola Pensacola, FL

Barleybrine is a celebration of all things stout & briny — of strong backs, stiff drinks & salty tongues. Above all, it is a celebration of Panhandle people, our way of life & this beautiful place we call home. You can think of this event as the younger, brasher cousin of Peat & Pearls, the Scotch- and oyster- themed event we host each fall in Pensacola. If you’ve been to that event, you have some idea what to expect at Barleybrine, with some caveats. Where Peat & Pearls is swanky, Barleybrine is swarthy and swashbuckling. There will still be plenty of oysters, to be sure, but we’ll be chasing them with craft beer, not fine scotch or expensive cigars. Ticket sales will benefit the Gulf Seafood Foundation, and their efforts to help Florida seafood workers affected by Hurricane Michael.
