Three In-Person Beer Fests Coming Soon to Austin

POSTPONED Texas Lambic Fest | August 1, 2021 | Batch – Craft Beer and Kolaches | Tickets
Texas Lambic Fest is an annual event that focuses, on you guessed it, Lambic style beers.

This year’s event will take place at Batch (3220 Manor Rd) on Sunday, August 1st from 1 pm to 6 pm. Tickets are $20 and include this year’s commemorative tasting glass, a pour from Batch’s tap wall, and a bite from Envie. Tickets will be available at the door day of for $25 (cash preferred).

Lager Jam | August 28, 2021 | Spokesman Coffee (Yard location)
Lager Jam is also making a triumphant return, (and technically isn’t a beer festival). Presented by the Austin Beer Guide, this year’s jam is returning to Spokesman Coffee at the Yard on Saturday, August 28th. Optional party packages will go on sale on July 28th, although a package is not required to attend. “It’s called Lager ‘Jam’, not Fest, for a reason. We forget about the tasting glasses and offer full frothy pours of nearly 40 of the finest and most fun lagers from Austin and beyond at an all-out parking lot party. After a year off and the COVID-cancelled Texas Lager Jam at the Craft Brewers Conference in San Antonio, we’re counting down the days until we can rub sweaty elbows with our friends, industry partners, and fellow lager lovers at Spokesman.” – Josh Spradling, co-founder of the Austin Beer Guide
Texas Craft Brewers Festival | October 23, 2021 | Fiesta Gardens
Texas Craft Brewers Festival, the state’s largest beer event focused exclusively on Texas-brewed craft beer is planning to return to East Austin’s Fiesta Gardens on October 23, 2021. “We here at the Texas Craft Brewers Guild are eager and excited to welcome festivalgoers back to Fiesta Gardens to celebrate the resilience of our industry and thank you—the Texas craft beer community—for your unwavering support!” Tickets are expected to go on sale later this summer, along with the announcement of the brewery lineup. In the meantime, Texas craft beer lovers are encouraged to download and use the Texas Brewery Passport™ to find and visit Texas breweries and brewpubs across the state.
