This October, the inaugural Alys Beach Crafted celebrated the thoughtful craftsmanship of the country’s top artisans, makers, and creatives. The weekend was filled with craft cocktail seminars, a Makers’ Market, and engaging workshops on topics like the art of succulent arrangements and silk scarf dying. The return of the Firkin Fête craft beer event was a crowd favorite. Here, the Southeast’s premier brewers tapped their firkin barrels to share small-batch beers while Northwest Florida chefs crafted delicious fall fare. Proceeds from the festivities benefited Food for Thought Outreach. Cheers, until next year!
