Tickets may now be purchased for the 2016 Texas Craft Brewers Festival. Put on by the Texas Craft Brewers Guild, the festival which represents the largest event in the state focused exclusively on Texas-brewed beer will be held on September 24, 2016, at Fiesta Gardens in East Austin.
"Once again we are excited to bring Texas craft brewers and Texas craft beer fans together in Austin for our unique celebration," said Charles Vallhonrat, the Guild's executive director. "The Texas Craft Brewers Festival is one of a kind because it really is the brewers' festival. With nearly 200 operating and in-planning brewery members, the Texas Craft Brewers Guild is the leading advocate for Texas craft beer, and we are excited to have our members come together with the people who love craft beer for this great celebration."
This year, the event will feature over 65 Texas breweries in attendance, with upwards of 200 brews available for sampling. A complete list of participating brewers, including over 15 from North Texas, is provided at the following link:
In addition, for the second straight year, a portion of the proceeds will benefit The House that Beer Built, a collaborative effort between Austin breweries and Austin Habitat for Humanity. This initiative seeks to raise $85,000 in order to build a new home for a deserving Austin family.
