Bolts Brew Fest

Cools the Off-Season Heat!

The Tampa Bay Lightning will be hosting Bolts Brew Fest at AMALIE Arena on Friday, August 16, beginning at 7:00 PM. The three-hour event will offer craft beers from a variety of different local craft breweries, oversized games, Lightning personalities and more!

Members of the Tampa Bay Lightning are probably not even allowing themselves ONE beer this off-season, especially Nikita Kucherov, who famously doesn’t drink. On the plus side, a fair number of us hockey fans are not professional athletes, and are free to head over to Amalie Arena on Friday, August 16 (from 7 – 10 PM) to try 50 breweries worth of unlimited beer samples. Check out the price of admission (a portion of which will benefit the Humane Society of Tampa).
