Along with more than 50 guest breweries, the festival is going to be released using a collection of pre-event releases and guest tap takeovers. “Our third-annual craft beer festival is coming back with a trippy vengeance to compensate for a year’s unforeseen and sudden cancellation,” says Tripping Animals cofounder Ignacio Montenegro. “The thought was to create this a major festival to welcome everybody back. “The festival will welcome heaps of engaging breweries on Saturday, April 24.

Other guests include Forager Brewery, Imprint Beer Company, Mortalis Brewing Co., Additional whirlpool Brewing Co., Resident Culture Brewing Co., the Eighth State Brewing Co., Toppling Goliath Brewing Co., plus Vitamin Sea Brewing Co.”This season, we’ve also expanded the invitation to our local friends Also, because this is a compilation of sorts,” Montenegro explains. “We’ve got so many industry friends that we’ve worked with previously and collaborated with. This is a celebration of these relationships. “Over the previous six weeks, the group in Tripping Animals was working to make sure the 2021 Irie Jungle has been curated to get a post-pandemic atmosphere. To ensure safety, the brewery is going to be following CDC guidelines for occasions. Masks are needed while moving through the distance, and sanitizing stations will be available in several locations.Two entry tiers and 2 timed-entry sessions allows for adequate social distancing, says Montenegro.

There has been no travel, no in-person collaborating, no festivals, no no getting together to share beer. Now, we can finally celebrate Irie Jungle the ideal way, and introduce some new breweries to Doral and Miami. “Tripping Animals Irie Jungle Beer Festival.
