Well over 70 craft beers, great food pairings from local restaurants, live music and more all came together with the Naples North Rotary Foundation down at Bayfront.  Sunny skies and live entertainment greeted attendees who had the chance to sample everything from traditional pilsners and lagers right through cider beers and those with hints of blueberry and chocolate.  Add in offerings of barbecue and bison chili from restaurants like Boston Beer Garden and Agave Southwestern grill and it was a free for all to the pallette all while benefiting the Rotary Foundation.  President Elect Ron Miller said 'We'll do it again next year too'.
