FORT MYERS The Fort Myers Miracle's eighth annual Beer, Baseball & Boom Friday, July 20, will feature unlimited samples of several dozen craft beers and postgame fireworks sandwiched around a baseball game.

Beer, Baseball & Boom, presented by Kille-brew Root Beer, has quickly gained fame as a top midsummer event for beer aficionados, who will have two full hours to taste samples of ice cold ales, lagers, pilsners and stouts from brewing companies near and far.

Many Southwest Florida breweries will be featured on the stadium concourse, including Scotty's Bierwerks, which this season has brewed the new Scotty's Miracle Blonde Ale.

"For just $6, fans will receive a wristband to attend the beer fest and hopefully find a new favorite brew at the ballpark," said Chris Peters, Miracle president and general manager. "We suggest arriving early and staying late to take full advantage of Beer, Baseball & Boom."

The event is an extension of the Miracle's Ballpark Festival of Beers, a larger beer fest that celebrated its 14th anniversary in January. This season, the Miracle have expanded the variety of beer and alcohol options being served at Hammond Stadium to offer fans a greater selection of Florida-based brews.

Beer, Baseball & Boom runs from 6 to 8 p.m. on Friday on the stadium concourse. The Miracle will be playing the Lakeland Flying Tigers, with first pitch set for 7 p.m. Game tickets start at $8.50 in advance or $10 on game day.

The July 20 game features an abundance of promotions, including:

Fireworks Friday: A spectacular postgame pyrotechnics display in right field from Zambelli Fireworks.

Wrestling Night: Wrestling legends Tito Santana and Nasty Boy Brian Knobbs will hold a meet-and-greet with fans.

Pregame Happy Hour: Wicked Dolphin and B103.9 will be presenting special drink offers from 6 to 8 p.m.

Miracle vs. Cancer Night: A head-shaving and fundraising event will benefit the Vs. Cancer initiative of the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation.

Nonprofit Night: Southwest Florida charitable organizations will create informational booths and provide materials to fans interested in making a difference in this community.

Baseball Miracles Glove Drive: The Miracle are partnering with Baseball Miracles to collect gently used baseball and softball gloves so all children have an opportunity to play the game.
