Come to East Austin to Texas Craft Brewers Festival for the ultimate celebration of Texas craft beer on Saturday, October 23. There will be live music, food trucks, and most importantly, beer samplings from 90 small and independent Texas craft breweries!
About the Festival
The fun will happen at Fiesta Gardens at 2101 Jesse E. Segovia St., Austin, TX 78702. What’s new for 2021 is that the main entrance will be at the corner of Chicon St. and Nash Hernandez Senior Rd. You’ll have an opportunity to browse more than 200 distinct Texas-brewed craft beers.
The festival is organized by the Texas Craft Brewers Guild, a non-profit trade association for brewers working to advance the Texas craft beer industry. This event is limited to people ages 21 and over.
All general admission and VIP tickets include commemorative tasting cups and 10 sample tickets. These are redeemable for a 3-ounce pour. If you’d like to sample more beer, you can buy ticket packages onsite. They’ll accept cash, credit cards, and debit cards.
Before You Go
You can park around Fiesta Gardens and Lady Bird Lake for no cost. However, there are limited spaces. Please respect the nearby neighborhoods, avoid blocking driveways, and pay heed to any signage.
The festival organizers recommend taking public transportation or riding a bike as they provide bike racks next to the entrance on the west end of the park. If you ride your bike, please bring a lock for your bike. If these transportation suggestions don’t work for you, you can park remotely, carpool, take a rideshare, or arrange for a ride. The festival sells reduced-cost Designated Driver tickets for attendees who will abstain from alcohol.
Buy your ticket before the event as there’s no onsite box office. The only tickets you can buy at the festival are beer sampling tickets. You’ll need a printed or mobile ticket to enter the festival. Please buy your ticket through the festival’s website to avoid counterfeit event ticket scams. They advise not buying tickets sold on unofficial channels like Facebook or Craigslist.
