The Brew! 11/19

Posted on 20 November 2015 by Admin - Mike Cortez

This week in, The Brew! We took a little vacation last week and got out of town so unfortunately we missed a few things. A big hats off to our friends at 512 Brewing for celebrating their 7th anniversary and Texian Brewing celebrated their 3rd anniversary. Thank you to those great breweries for continuously making great Texas beers. Next week is Thanksgiving so we will have an early edition of The Brew! But until then we have a lot to talk about. This week, more shameless self promoting for my book signing this Saturday in San Antonio, then we talk about a beer festival that is taking over San Antonio this weekend. Lastly, we head up north for a brewpubs special bottle release and festival taking place in Dallas. Check it out now in this weeks edition of, The Brew!

San Antonio – This Saturday, yours truly will be at the Twig Book Shop at the old Historic Pearl Brewery from 11am-1pm signing copies of “Beer Lover’s Texas: Best Breweries, Brewpubs & Beer Bars”. Come out to pick up a copy and check out their weekly farmers market. Afterwards I strongly suggest checking out Southerleigh Fine Food and Brewery or the Granary ‘Cue & Brew for a delicious lunch and some great beers.

Like usual you can expect a great line up of live music and the best beers available in Texas. Friday night the official kickoff party will be hosted at Big Hops (The Bridge) starting at 7:30pm. Be sure to head out and pick up your Untapped wristbands so you don’t have to wait in line on Saturday. They will feature beer specials all evening and Alamo Brewing will be showing off their new Winter IPA. Saturday the festival will take place at the old Lone Start Brewery at 3:30pm (2:30pm for VIP).
