| March 5, 2015 | Sponsored Post The Latest

From tasting South Florida's best restaurant fare to sampling unlimited servings of wine and beer, this four-day event (April 15-18) is a can't-miss culinary fest. Here are 10 reasons why you should get your tickets to VeritageMiami right now.

1 - 10 Reasons You Need to Check Out VeritageMiami

1. Food is NOT sold separately.

At VeritageMiami’s Craft Beer and Fine Wine Tastings, all the drinks and food are included with your ticket purchase; and we aren’t talking bite-sized olives either. Dozens of the hottest South Florida restaurants will serve full-portions of unlimited deliciousness. Take for example, the Daily Melt’s truffle, bacon, tomato, cheddar, and provolone melt that was served at last year’s Craft Beer Tasting or the steak skewers with chimichurri sauce and ropa vieja empanadas that Wynwood Kitchen & Bar dished out. Yum.

2. Look Ma, no hands.

Kudos to those of you who can enjoy an event with multiple drinks in hand. For the rest (er, majority) of us who can’t juggle two or three drinks, plus a plate of food without making a splash or ruining our outfits, we’ve got just the thing for you. Each guest at VeritageMiami’s Fine Wine Tasting will receive a plate that doubles as wine glass holders, giving you one-handed freedom for all the selfies you'll be taking as you feast on the finest local grub and wines from around the country.

3. A WHOLE burger.

Yes, we are serious when we say Shake Shack, a longtime VeritageMiami Craft Beer Tasting participant, will serve its classic ShackBurger in its entirety! The burgers will be cooked onsite, fresh off the flaming 72’ flat-top griddle, and straight into your hands.

4. The cabs are here!

At VeritageMiami’s Craft Beer Tasting, everyone can enjoy the unlimited servings of brews—even the designated driver! We’ve partnered with Uber to offer free transportation (up to $20) with purchase of a ticket.

5. After the party, it’s the “after party".

Living in the 305, we know it’s all about the after parties, which is why the United Way Young Leaders throw one heck of a nightcap at the annual Craft Beer Tasting after party. See you at MAPS Backlot in Wynwood featuring select beer, dessert, and liquor sponsors.

6. Go fish!

If you’re a true Miamian, we know you’ve enjoyed a baseball game or two at the new Marlins Park, but never from the point of view you’ll experience at VeritageMiami’s Auction & Wine Dinner on the Diamond. Feel what it’s like to play in the big leagues when you step foot on the MLB field to enjoy your four-course meal under the stars, thanks to the hi-tech LEED Gold Certified retractable roof.

7. Wine, wine, more wine… did we mention, WINE?

VeritageMiami is open to all importers and distributors, so you’ll have an enormous range of wines to taste, from small boutique producers to large multi-nationals. At the Fine Wine Tasting alone, guests will have the opportunity to sample nearly 400 wines, which are all served by winos who know their stuff! Wineries know that VeritageMiami tasters want to find new and interesting options, so they send pourers who speak about the wines with passion and knowledge. Find a wine you like, and get the whole story on it right then and there—think of the pourers as your personal Winepedia!

8. You get in on the cooking action!

At VeritageMiami’s Interactive Dinner, guests can let their inner foodie come alive. Five celebrity chefs guide guests, as they prepare their own five-course meals right at their tables. Not to worry, aprons and toques are available for full-on foodie satisfaction and chef transformations. And when all the wine from reason number 7 starts to set in, guests can count on the help of culinarily talented Johnson & Wales students, who will be your personal sous chefs.

9. We'll take it with a side of concert, please.

At VeritageMiami’s Auction & Wine Dinner on the Diamond guests will not only experience great food, wine and an amazing venue (see reason number 6), but we're also throwing in a concert! We’re not telling who the evening’s entertainment is just yet, but we guarantee the performance will knock it out of the park!

10. You can make a difference!

Last, but certainly not least, you’ll be eating, drinking, partying, and cooking all to the benefit of United Way of Miami-Dade and its work to strengthen our community. Not only will you walk away full and tipsy, but you’ll feel proud and fulfilled.
