USA Today readers were recently asked to vote for their favorite beer festival in the country, and Jupiter’s Field of Beers, which took place January 29th, came in at No. 4. The exclusive event, which sold out online in just 11 minutes, is held at Roger Dean Stadium and features America’s best craft breweries and top Palm Beach County chefs headed up by Field of Beers founder, Fran Andrewlevich of Twisted Trunk Brewing and Tequesta Brewing Co. and our very own Rockstar Chef, Kyle Pintarelli.
Enlisting the help of a panel of beer experts, USA Today 10Best nominated 20 festival finalists with the top 10 to be determined by popular vote. The winners were announced March 7th with Field of Beers at No. 4, sitting among other notable fests like the Great American Beer Festival (No. 1), the Atlantic City Beer and Music Festival (No. 2), and the Great Taste of the Midwest in Madison, Wis. (No. 3).
A foodie-focused event, the featured dishes - expertly paired with their brews - highlighted fourteen Rockstar Catering creations including Vietnamese Fish Sauce Wings, Rabbit Currywurst, Duck Prosciutto, Reindeer Chili and the conversation-starting Peking Pig that was slow roasted and smoked with hops at third base.
Here’s why FOB made the cut, according to USA Today:
As part of the larger Jupiter Craft Brewers Festival in Jupiter, Fla., this popular pre-event is a sought-after ticket. The intimate evening takes place in Roger Dean Stadium - the spring training facility of the Florida Marlins and St. Louis Cardinals. Some of the best craft brewers in America are partnered with renowned Palm Beach chefs to create unforgettable beer and food pairings. The brewers are on hand to discuss their beers as the chefs reveal their process for creating the complementary dishes. It’s a one-of-a-kind event that offered the opportunity to sample great beer and food while learning more directly from the source.
