Key West BrewFest is an annual event set to be hosted by Southernmost Beach Resort, spanning the dates from August 31 to September 4, 2023. The multi-day festival includes a plethora of events, including beer pairing dinners, pool parties, and tap takeovers, eventually culminating in a signature beer tasting event. The festival provides a unique opportunity to explore Key West, as events are held in various venues across town, including an assortment of restaurants, hotels, and bars.

Beyond its enticing festivities, BrewFest holds a noble purpose at its core - it is a fundraising event organized by the Rotary Club of Key West Sunrise in the Conch Republic, a non-profit organization that serves both the community and worldwide needs.
