Sep 5, 2019

Swamp Head Brewery is proud to partner with the University of Florida to bring the Swamp Head Tailgate to The Gator Walk Village on the North Lawn outside Ben Hill Griffin Stadium beginning this weekend (September 7th) for the game against the University of Tennessee Martin Skyhawks.

“Growing up in Gainesville and being a Gainesville brewery, we’re obviously super excited about partnering with our hometown team,” said Luke Kemper, owner of Swamp Head Brewery.  “We thought this would be a great experience for Gator fans, so we’ll be set up with plenty of beer, shade, music, and tailgate games before every home game.”

According to the University of Florida Gameday Initiatives website, the Swamp Head Tailgate will be a staple of “The Gator Walk Village.  The Gator Walk Village is host to a premium tailgate setup, along with Gator Walk and a designation spot for all Gators Fans with music, drinks, fun & food trucks. The Village, which opens at 3 p.m. on Sept. 7, is located on the North Lawn in between University Ave. and Ben Hill Griffin Stadium will once again expand this season, adding to the lively pregame atmosphere and entertainment surrounding the stadium.”  The tailgate will also feature food from local food trucks.  “The Official Swamp Head Tailgate will open between three-four hours prior to kickoff (depending on kickoff time) and close 45 minutes before kickoff. Fans of all ages can stop by the tailgate for shade, tailgate games, live music and more.”  There will also be water for sale at the water station located near the Swamp Head Tailgate.
