The Alliance for the Arts in Fort Myers has announced the return of its annual fundraiser Arts On Tap. This year’s event spans two days and features an mash up of Southwest Florida’s craft beer and arts scenes and a performance by two-time Grammy-nominated hip hop group the Nappy Roots.

On Friday, Nov. 12, guests can mingle, play, sip and savor as local craft brewers pour new artisan brews, play pub games, rub elbows with craft brewers and the Nappy Roots, bid on silent auction items and enjoy live music.

Participating crafters include Bone Hook Brewing, Coastal Dayz Brewery, Crazy Dingo Brewing, Eight Foot Brewing, Fort Myers Brewing, Hopsized Brewing, LaBelle Brewing, Millennial Brewing Company, Palm City Brewing, Point Ybel Brewing and Riptide Brewing. Restaurant partners include The American Grilled Cheese Kitchen and The Standard.

The celebration continues on Nov. 13 with a night of food trucks, beer, art, VIP lounge experiences and a once-in-a-lifetime performance by the Nappy Roots.

Tickets will go on sale September 2021. Sponsorships and visibility opportunities are available at ArtInLee.org/OnTap or by contacting Jessica Wisdom at Jessica@ArtInLee.org or calling 239-939-2787.
