Whiskey Blue At The W Fort Lauderdale Is Launching A Monthly Beer Garden Series, And It Kicks Off Labor Day Weekend

There's a new place in town to kick back and relax oceanside at the end of the work week.

Whiskey Blue, a Gerber Group bar at the W Fort Lauderdale, is launching a monthly beer garden event series featuring barbecue and live music on the first Friday of every month. 

The series kicks off Sept. 4 during Labor Day weekend in collaboration with Funky Buddha Brewery. The venue plans to partner with different local breweries—stretching from Fort Lauderdale to Miami and even the Keys—each time.

The team at Whiskey Blue had been watching the evolution of South Florida's craft beer scene and decided to plan a community event around it.

"We wanted to offer a showcase for these wonderful creative endeavors and offer guests another great venue at W Fort Lauderdale, the patio at Whiskey Blue," a Gerber Group representative said.

Entry and tunes at the Whiskey Blue Beer Garden are free for hotel guests, passersby and locals alike, but the drinks and food will cost ya. 

"The vibe is laid back and guests are welcome to take a seat on the patio with ocean views, live music, good food and craft beer," the rep said.

At the kick-off event, Funky Buddha draft and bottled brews, such as Hop Gun and Floridian, will start at $7. The Labor Day weekend BBQ menu will include a selection of sliders, bratwurst simmered in Funky Buddha beers and more, ranging in price from $12 to $16. Local folk rock band SOSOS will be performing on the W's southeast-corner patio throughout the night. 

The event will take place from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. For table reservations, call 954.414.8300.
