Best Fest for Beer Lovers

Texas Craft Brewers Festival

This is a festival that celebrates the miracle of making good beer in Texas, because everyone by now knows how terrible of an endeavor it is to pull off such a thing with all of those repellent distribution laws and building codes set in place to help Lone Star breweries fail. It's a real underdog story. Hosted by the Texas Craft Brewers Guild, this 15-year-old beer party showcases the state’s insane range of brewing talent and creativeness, from the cleanest of pilsners, to the dankest of IPAs, to the pastry-est of stouts (some of these breweries might actually want to be bakeries), this festival is a real proud moment for the city (and state) every year.
