Austin Launch Party Review

Posted on 14 September 2012 by Admin - Mike Cortez

The Texas Beer Guide – Austin Launch Party was a huge success. We have over 300 attendees which helped us raise 386Lbs of food and $110 for the Capital Area Food Bank. Lucas Cook and Slash Future keep the crowd entertained while attendees sampled beers from Rogness Brewing, Saint Arnold Brewing, Project Brew, Guadalupe Brewing,  Black Star Co-Op, Real Ale Brewing, 512 Brewing and Adelbert’s Brewery. A big thank you to the great folks at the Co-Lab Projects  for all their help. Thank you to everyone coming out and I hope to see you all at the next one!

No More Texas Beer Fest?

Posted on 07 September 2012 by Admin - Mike Cortez

The sad news broke this morning. With a press release from Texas Beer Fest co-creator Jake Lewis, they announced they would be taking a hiatus in 2013. For how long we don’t know but we can only hope that they take the year off and come back in 2014 with one of the biggest craft beer festivals to hit Texas.

Good morning everyone,

Thank you all so very much for your support of the Texas Beer Festival. We could not have put forward such a craft-centric event these last two years without you.  Unfortunately, we will be going on hiatus as of 2013. Clif is looking to do some international travel, and I cannot finance and run the event from this far out of state.  I hope that we will be able to pick it up again sometime in the future, but in the meantime we are simply grateful for being part of such a fantastic community of craft beer drinkers.

Please keep in touch.

Viva la Craft Beer Revolution!

We wish Jake and Clif all the best in their future endeavors and we raise a glass to their hard work for putting on two amazing festivals. Many cheers to you guys and we wish Clif safe travels.
