Starting August 1, the family-run beer tent (operated by the Beemer family) in the center of the market will be replaced by a tent operated by the Tampa-based beer chain, that recently opened a location nearby on Lake Eola.
World of Beer declined to comment on the change and what their plan for the space will be.
The Farmers Market takes place every Sunday on the Southeastern corner of Lake Eola. The beer tent is a crowd favorite for post-brunch drinking, most likely due to their $10 all-you-can-drink mimosa deal and affordable draft beer options.
UPDATE – According to Dana Brown, the owner of Red Top Productions, a third party contractor that manages the Farmers Market, the City required an RFP to be submitted for the contract to provide beverages at the market. The Beemer family was outbid by World of Beer, which is why they are no longer going to be at the market. The particulars of the deal and what services will be provided will be discussed on Friday, July 17. Brown will be giving Bungalower an update on the contract as soon as possible.
