Will Hillary Clinton be photographed sipping product from the taps at 3 Daughters Brewery in South St. Pete on Monday?

Why wouldn’t she be? Her campaign announced that she’d be making an appearance there Monday afternoon.

The Democratic presidential nominee — who needs to add millennials to her coalition against Donald Trump — will be making an appearance at 3 Daughters Brewery in the Warehouse Arts District, 222 22nd Street South at 2:30 p.m. on Monday. It’s all part of her “jobs tour” in the Sunshine State, which in addition to a 3:30 p.m. scheduled speech at the St. Petersburg Coliseum, includes an appearance planned for 6:30 p.m. in Kissimmee Monday.

“Clinton will outline her plan to make the biggest investment in good-paying jobs since World War II during her first 100 days in office,” the campaign announced on Sunday said in a news release. It is not a public event.

One of the fastest growing regional breweries in the state, 3 Daughters recently announced major expansion plans, and will add a 10,000 square foot facility on the same property as the original factory. Through a partnership with a local tank manufacturer, BrewFab, the expansion seeks to more than quintuple its current production capacity. Once completed, 3 Daughters will become one of the largest brewers in the state. The company currently sells four styles of canned beer throughout Florida, Georgia and the Bahamas.

People who want to see Clinton can do so by attending her speech at the Coliseum, located at 535 4th Avenue North. Doors open at 1:30 p.m.

Clinton will stay in the Sunshine State thru Tuesday morning, appearing for another event closed to the public at Borinquen Health Care Center in Miami.

A new national ABC-Washington Post poll out Sunday has Clinton leading Republican Donald Trump by 8 points, 50 to 42 percent. She and Trump are about even on the question of voter trust to handle the economy: 48 percent said Clinton; Trump received 46 percent.
