Thanksgiving is a time to take note of all for which we are grateful. For many, the simple fact of good health, the support of family, and our general well- being rank highly on the ‘things to be thankful for’ list, as they should. But there is one other thing that deserves thanks, and that is craft beer. One of the best ways to learn more and sample a large variety of craft beer is to attend a beer festival and here on the Texas Gulf coast, we happen to have one of the largest and best beer festivals in the nation. It’s the BrewMasters Craft Beer Festival, scheduled for November 24 through November 26, 2017 at Moody Gardens on Galveston Island.
The BrewMasters Craft Beer Festival is an excellent place to improve one’s beer IQ. Seminars discussing the current state of craft beer will be held on the Beer University Seminar Stage, with special appearances from local beer personalities. Attendees can soak up Houston beer history, learn about and meet some of the ladies of Houston craft beer, and walk away all the wiser.
Beer for You
Once you’ve got your fill of education, it will be time to fill your glass and the BrewMasters Craft Beer Festival presents endless opportunities for exactly that. Starting with a Friday Night Pub Crawl, festival- goers will be treated to some of the best beer around, culminating in the Brew HaHa Grand Tasting on Saturday. This year’s festival even has a tequila tasting, perfect for those who want to broaden their adult beverage horizons.
Buy Your Tickets
This year’s BrewMasters Craft Beer Festival is the 8th such event and, as many know, it is normally held over Labor Day Weekend. A nasty and historically significant hurricane/storm known as Harvey forced the cancellation of the festival, but the organizers were not about to give up. They quickly took action and rescheduled the event for Thanksgiving Day weekend, perfect for those who want to continue Thursday’s traditional family party well into the weekend.
Tickets to the BrewMasters Craft Beer Festival are available right now and the cool thing is that you do not need to purchase admission to all of the events. You can pick and choose what you like and buy tickets only to those events. Perhaps you like the idea of attending the tequila tasting and Brew HaHa, but would rather forgo the pub crawl. Or maybe you want to go to the Brew HaHa and the Stubb’s Barbecue Brew-B-Que on Sunday and nothing else. Whatever you like, not a problem- the tickets are sold on a per event basis, so you pay only for what you plan to attend.
Thanksgiving is all about giving thanks and craft beer fans have much to be thankful for, as the number of craft breweries reaches all- time highs and the number of quality beers climbs to unprecedented heights. The BrewMasters Craft Beer Festival is an excellent way to learn more about your favorite craft brew and sample some of the finest beers around while meeting new friends in the process.
