Texas Craft Brewers Festival Unites Craft Brewers in Austin

An Outdoor Beer Sampling Festival Dedicated to the Fine Art of Craft Brewing

AUSTIN, TX, [August 29, 2011]—On September 24, 2011, craft brewers from across the state will convene on Austin’s Fiesta Gardens to celebrate Texas’ new, innovative, and delicious craft beers. This non-profit outdoor festival, produced by the Young Men’s Business League of Austin and benefiting Austin Sunshine Camps, will feature Texas-brewed beer and ale (as well as non-alcoholic beverages), a commemorative tasting glass, live music, local food vendors, food and beer pairings, and a good time to be had by all at this beautiful venue on the banks of the Colorado River.

"The Texas beer scene is on fire!” says Tim Schwartz, Director of Brewery Operations for Real Ale Brewing Company in Blanco, Texas, and President of the Texas Craft Brewers Guild. “New breweries are opening all over the state and established craft breweries are expanding. This is a perfect time for the resurgence of the Texas Craft Brewers Festival. The festival brings all of this variety together in one venue. Come on out and see what Texas brewing has to offer."

In addition to the many established craft brewers that will be in attendance, several breweries who haven’t released beer yet are using the festival as their target date to publicly introduce their first beers. Rare and special beers will be highlighted throughout the festival.
