If last weekend's Pints for Pulse beer event at Orlando Festival Park was totally your cup of lager, here's another brew-based fest you'll want to hit up this weekend. The Great Orlando Craft Beer Festival is this weekend at Wall Street Plaza, where you'll find 17 of the country's best craft breweries peddling their suds to eager tasters.

For $20 in advance, $30 at the door, you'll get 5-ounce samples of each brew at 17 different spots. If you do the math, that's 85 total ounces, or about five pints from these breweries and more:

Cigar City, Funky Buddha, Coppertail, Crooked Can, Lagunitas, Saltwater, Swamp Head, Orlando Brewing, Orange Blossom, Red Cypress, Founders, New Belgium, Oskar Blues, Sierra Nevada, Ballast Point, Sam Adams, Uinta

Show up at 3 p.m. for early registration and brew sampling at Sideshow, the first location to open. At 4 p.m., the other 16 bars open for you to crawl at your own pace. At 8 p.m., join the festival organizers for an after-party at Wall Street Plaza with live music and, yes, more beer.
