Beer Fest Coming Up at Flying Saucer

Press release from the Flying Saucer:

The Flying Saucer Draught Emporium will host its first annual Fall Brew Fest on Saturday, Oct. 4 from noon to 10 p.m. at its location at 815 West 47th St. at the City of Austin’s Triangle Park.

The Flying Saucer’s Fall Brew Fest will feature five beer tents, each with crafted brews chosen by The Flying Saucer’s own resident beer guru, Keith Schlabs. Featured beers will include rare special releases and cask-conditioned ales. The event also will feature a Frisbee® Golf tournament and live music.

“We’ve had a great response to these events in other markets and knew Austin would be the perfect place to host our next Fall Brew Fest,” said Shannon Wynne, owner of The Flying Saucer. “Cap’n Keith has chosen some great beers for this year’s event, a few of which aren’t available anywhere else in the Austin area. It’s an event beer lovers won’t want to miss!”

Admission to the event is free, but for $15, event goers will receive a commemorative glass and tasting card that can be redeemed for a sampling of 10 of the 20 featured beers. Brats, kraut and Bavarian pretzels also will be available.

Why must they always schedule beer events on the same day?! This is also the same as the first day of the NXNW Oktoberfest celebration.

That's also Independence's anniversary party (5-9pm)

So it's settled: I'm drinking beer somewhere on Oct. 4.

(Independence is gonna have to come up with some pretty cute women to pull me away from either Flying Saucer's mini-kilts and NXNW's dirndels.)

Hey Bill: You know, Flying Saucer is reasonable walking distance from the No. 3 bus. No reason one couldn't hit BOTH places. :-)

I’ve heard they are going to have Divine Reserve 7 on tap for this…

Great. Oct. 4th we'll be out of town. For the first time since early August.

Figures.
