BeerWorks Charitable Foundation, Inc. was founded in 2008 by five individuals who loved beer and wanted to make a difference by running a beer festival for charity. The beer fest was carefully planned and was a resounding success. It started in the Ft. Pierce parking garage and grew in popularity until the parking garage was not big enough. After a few years at the St. Lucie Civic Center, the Treasure Coast Beer Festis now open to all, and located at Tradition Square, conveniently located just off of Interstate 95.
In addition to the Beerfest, the annual VIP event, River of Beers, started in 2010 as a place to have ultra rare beer (many of them brewed exclusively for this event), and paired with the finest culinary menu. This event sells out every year in a very short period of time and is a wonderful way to experience the wide range of craft beer.
BeerWorks Charitable Foundation consists of three of the original founding members: Mark Carbone, Marc Boland, and Joe Greenwald. Additional board members are Melanie Whitney, Gerry Solorzano, and Mendy Solorzano. Beerworks relies on hundreds of volunteers throughout the year to make these events possible. We are extremely grateful to our volunteers that help produce such great events.
