Texas Craft Brewers Festival


Yesterday, my friends and I went to the Texas Craft Brewers Festival. I'm not much a beer person, but I figured this would be a festive way to try something new. Tickets were $25, which included a small tasting glass and six tasting tickets. You could also purchase extra tasting tickets for a few dollars at one of the stands.

This is definitely on my to do list for next year!! The food was good, the music was good, the people were friendly, the parking was free, there was a wide variety of beer, and the event was well organized. They provided us with a map, a list of breweries, and a list with a detailed description of the beers available. The breweries were in alphabetical order and the food trucks were all in one general area. Easy, easy, easy!! The only downfall was the line to get into the festival. The gates opened at 2pm and the line was huge!! I recommend arriving a little early to beat the line, and don't forget to buy your tickets in advance!!

Here's a list of some of my new favorites:
High Esteem from Black Star Co-op Pub and Brewery 
Nightmare on 1st Street from No Label Brewing
Krunkin Pumpkin from Karbach Brewing
Yellow Rose Ale from Lone Pint Brewery
Blood and Honey from Revolver Brewing
Siesta from Twisted X Brewing
