Austin, TX – Austin Beer Week

Austin Beer Week is a multi-day, multi-event, brewer-centric showcase of all things craft beer, now in its 7th year.

Austin Beer Week is produced by a small but thirsty band of loyal Austin craft beer drinkers, in partnership with the Texas Craft Brewers Guild, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit supporting Texas craft brewers and the craft beer community.

Austin Beer Week’s unique event structure provides an open palate for, well, opening palates. To the extent events are curated, brewers and venues are encouraged to embrace the creative, playful, even daring when planning activities, which can range from intense food-beer appreciation from nationally recognized chefs to tongue-in-cheek competitions testing keg-lifting mettle.”
