Ah, Fall...when the weather is changing, the leaves begin to fall and sounds of music fill the air with Houston's Fall festivals. Of course, fall festivals are usually made up of fun events, food and just as importantly, music and beer.
Well, get ready for Houston's largest indoor/outdoor beer sampling event inside the loop, hosted by the Houston Press and sponsored by Lucky's Pub and The Law Offices of Tad Nelson & Associates. It's the Houston Press' BrewFest in celebration of Oktoberfest, featuring craft beers, local food trucks and live music.
The Houston Press' BrewFest on Saturday, October 5, 2013 from 2 p.m. - 7 p.m. will be held at Silver Street Station located at 1501 Silver Street – off Washington Avenue in Houston, Texas.
First, to my favorite part of the festival, Country music by Justin van Sant, August West with Mitchell's Cut, Texas Rezurrection and Keyun & The Zydeco Masters.
The performance schedule is as follows:
2:00 p.m. – 2:45 p.m. - August West with Mitchell’s Cut
3:15 p.m. – 4 p.m. - TeXas Rezurrection - Texas Country and Southern Rock
6:15 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. - Keyun & The Zydeco Masters - Keyun was awarded "King" of the Big Squeeze Contest at the 21st Annual Accordian Kings and Queens Festival on June 5, 2001. For bookings call (281) 883-3117
With 110 different beers (American craft beers- both bottle and draft)and the stellar music line-up hitting the stage, the festival will prove to be even bigger than the Houston Press' BrewFest held in May of this year.
Another perk in the festival - Each guest will receive a punch card good for (8) 3 ounce samples. Or (2) 12 ounces full pours. Additional punch cards can be purchased on-site. GA and VIP will have access to a tap beer wall and beer booths. VIP guests will have access to a VIP lounge including seasonal specialty beers and free apps. You can also buy additional sample cards that include 8 (3 ounce) samples at $ 8 each.
Houston Press Brewfest is celebrating these seasonal craft brews with BrewFest's ultimate first annual Seasonal Brew Showdown. Participating Breweries have entered their pumpkin ales and Oktoberfest lagers to compete in a taste-off where you, the Brewfest guests, will select the winner. First place winner will take home the coveted Beer Boot, a half page ad in the Houston Press Issue the week following and bragging rights. Second and third place winners will be announced and honored.Voting will take place on-site at Brewfest. All GA and VIP guests are welcome to participate (DD tickets excluded).
