The Brandon Ballet invites lovers of beer and the ballet to its Fifth Annual Beers For Barres. Join the Brandon Ballet on Friday, October 4 from 7 to 10 p.m. at the Barn at Winthrop as it kicks off its 26th season with a fun night of craft beers, good food and exciting ballet.

Tickets to the event can be purchased at www.brandonballet.org for $30 plus tax for adults with IDs and $20 plus tax for food tasting only. Tickets purchased at the door will increase by $5. While this event is good for friends and families, you must have valid ID to get a wristband, which allows access to the craft beer area.

During the evening, the Brandon Ballet will perform excerpts from Cinderella’s Ball, Sleeping Beauty and Yuletide Ballet Celebration. Food will be provided by local favorite and event sponsor Stein & Vine. Bootleggers Brewing Co., Beer Can Island, Leaven Brewing, Bay Area Barley’s Angels and Brandon Bootleggers Homebrew Club will be providing original craft beer for you to sample.

Music will be provided by Big Beats Entertainment. It will keep the evening flowing as smoothly as the beer. You can hit the dance floor and dance to your favorite music or enjoy an early fall Florida evening on the patio.
