21st Annual Kumquat Festival

Post date: Jan 28, 2018 12:05:31 PM

This year, 4 breweries produced a beer using kumquats from our farms for the festival. Big Storm Brewery (Kumquat Radler wheat 4.8%), Tampa Bay Brewing Company (Quat blonde 5%), Inoculum Brewery (Sour Quat 3.8%), and Brew Bus Brewery (Quat IPA 7.2%). Our family has been growing and selling kumquats for over 100 years. An annual festival was created 21 years ago to showcase this small orange fruit and over 40,000 people attend the event each year. Our family business, Kumquat Growers, also holds an open house on the two days prior to the festival each year.
