Beer festivals are everywhere nowadays. Go to Google and run a search on the words ‘beer festivals’ and you will be presented with upwards of 2 million search results. There are even web sites dedicated to nothing more than listing, ranking, and categorizing all of the beer festivals taking place in the United States and the world, making sure that, no matter where you live, you’ll always be in the know when it comes to beer related festivities.
Here at Great Beer Now, we are fully aware of the seemingly ubiquitous nature of beer festivals and attend countless events each year. But there is one festival that easily stands out in the crowd; a festival that goes above and beyond drinking beer and focuses its efforts on making the world a better place. That event is the Wild West Brew Fest, held in Katy, Texas on the grounds of the Katy Mills Mall.
Let’s Drink Some Beer
The Wild West Brew Fest, scheduled for Saturday, May 7, 2016 with a special launch party on Friday, May 6, 2017, is now in its seventh year and has rightfully gained a reputation as a place to find great beer. With more than 600 beers from which to sample, along with hard- to- find specialty beers, Wild West Brew Fest is one of the best beer festivals in Texas and the United States for seeking out new libations. It’s also a great way to get your beer recognized, as the Wild West Brew Fest holds taste competitions at varying levels, awarding the best beers in the United States with top honors.
Community Matters Most
Drinking beer is, of course, an integral part of any beer festival but the Wild West Brew Fest is much more. You see, this festival is completely, 100 percent volunteer driven. The people who organize the festival, serve the food and beer, and otherwise work tirelessly to make sure that you, the Wild West Brew Fest patron, enjoy your time as much as possible, do so without compensation of any kind. There are no management fees and no one profits financially. All of the cash flow that comes into the festival from ticket sales flows right into the hands of charitable organizations. This sets the Wild West Brew Fest apart and makes it one- of- a- kind in the beer festival world. It is also a prime reason why Beer Yeti has named the Wild West Brew Fest the best beer festival in the United States for two years running.
