Where's the best place to enjoy more than 101 European beers? Beneath a 6,000 square-foot tent in the great outdoors, of course. That's where the Great European Beer Festival brings some of the best brews from across the pond?with special attention paid to the hops-filled land of Belgium. Names like Piraat, Lindeman?s, Chimay, and Duvel greet festival attendees as they work their way through the tent, which also shelters Belgian cuisine, live musicians, and the tinier musicians that live inside their tubas.

Hosted by the Sharp Edge Beer Emporium, The Great European Beer Festival has been a tradition for nearly two decades. The festivities kick off with an "Ultimate Bier Dinner," during which chefs pair Belgian ales with equally Belgian cuisine, such as duck sausage and imported cheese. The festival then hosts multiple beer-drinking sessions over the course of two days.

The smoothie engineers at Jamba Juice soak torrid tongues with delicious nutrient-rich concoctions from an extensive menu void of artificial preservatives or trans fats. Each large smoothie (a $7.06 value after tax) packs a vitamin wallop that helps people to lead healthy lives and gives them enough energy for all of life’s challenges, from getting through the workday to jumping safely from a cellular tower into a nearby kiddie pool. Take tongues for a whirl with the Strawberry Surf Rider, a smoothie made with strawberries, peaches, Jamba lemonade, and lime sherbet, or pump your palate with a Peach Pleasure smoothie concocted from peach, banana, and orange flavors. Fruit-and-veggie blends, such as the Apple 'n Greens or the Orange Carrot Karma, fuse the salubrious benefits of both types of soil-sprouters in a frozen treat that's more enjoyable than devouring a still-life painting.

Meticulously selected beans brew into a savory black ambrosia to forge hot coffee, iced coffee, and 12 icy Chiller blends.

Berries-and-cream protein smoothies fuel sippers with vitamin C, antioxidants, and whey protein, fusing decadence with nutrition like a broccoli-shaped gummy bear. Though not included with this Groupon, driver's-seat diners can also partake of the barista booth's range of on-the-go oatmeal, freshly baked cookies, and toasty belgian waffles.
