The Dark Embrace Invitational is an exclusive & collaborative festival between three local breweries at the end of Tampa Bay Beer Week. Cycle, Angry Chair, & Ology have come together to bring you an intimate & exciting event like no other! We are inviting over 50 of the best breweries in the world.

Having said that, if you want to enter the fest an hour early, with the most access to beers, we recommend a VIP ticket. Either way you go, there will be beer for all, food vendors on site, merchandise to commemorate our second year, & just a damn good time to be had! This event will be held rain or shine.

What breweries will be pouring at the fest?

Who can attend this festival?

The Dark Embrace is a ticketed event. Attendees must be 21+ and IDs will be checked upon entry with your ticket.

When should we show up?

We recommend showing up a half an hour before your entry time so that we can successfully check you in with your ticket & ID. This will give you the most time to enjoy the festival.

What is the parking situation?

Parking for The Dark Embrace Invitational at Perry Harvey Sr Park will be very limited. Please be mindful of the neighbors and businesses surrounding the park. Please utilize a DD, UBER, LYFT, Walk... multiple hours of drinking big stouts is not conducive to driving post-festival.

When do we pick up our bottles?

Due to park regulations, we are unable to distribute bottles on park property. However, very, very close to the park (.2miles) is Late Start Brewing. You will be able to pick up your bottles at their location 1018 E Cass St, Tampa, FL 33602 from 11am -6pm on Saturday 3/9/24. There is no re entry to the festival, once you decide to leave and pick up your bottles, that is it. Your wristband will be your ticket to receive your bottles. We realize that this is not the ideal situation, but we promise this is a short walk and will be a smooth experience. Please be respectful of Late Start Brewing when picking up your bottles.

Will there be food?

Yes. Available for purchase during the event.

Can I have my designated driver come in free and not drink/receive a bottle?

Unfortunately, no, but we do encourage using rideshare options like Uber & Lyft.

Can I bring my pet?

Unfortunately, no. While we love pets, please leave them at home to ensure an enjoyable time for everyone involved.
