I was recently asked what made the 4th Annual BrewMaster’s Festival different from other Texas craft beer fests. The BrewMaster’s Fest is the place to be first the to sample many breweries debuts. The BrewHaHa Grand Tasting was main event on Saturday that had over 400 craft and specialty brews. There were about dozen breweries debuting brand new brews, some that really stood out were Ballast Point Indra Kunindra India Style Export Stout, No Label Perpetual Peace Wee Heavy and Real Ale Scots Gone Wild.

Another big stand out was the VIP section that over looked the Moody Garden Convention Center floor. I stressed many times for people to buy up VIP tickets. The VIP area seemed like a catered bottle share. It was full of extremely rare and hard to get beer. It was paradise for craft beer lovers and foodies. To wash down all that delicious beer was gourmet food prepared by top chefs. It was worth every dollar spent on the ticket.
