The Trail Foundation Hosts Pop-Up Beer Garden at Sand Beach Park
The Trail Foundation, an organization dedicated to enhancing and protecting the Butler Hike-and-Bike Trail at Lady Bird Lake, is setting up a pop-up beer garden on Oct. 9-10. The beer garden will be held at Sand Beach Park from 12-7 p.m. There will be live music from local artists as well as local beverage options.
“TTF is excited to bring Trail lovers together for a celebration of local beer and live music while raising awareness about future projects on the Trail,” Marketing Associate for TTF, Emma Rogers said. “For example, The Seaholm Waterfront Project, located just across the street from the Beer Garden, is in the initial stages of renovation. TTF, along with Austin Parks and Recreation Department, is planning necessary upgrades to rejuvenate and activate the space in the short-term, while plans for the next phase of the Seaholm Waterfront Plan are developed.”
This event will be the first of its kind for TTF. As an organization that brings together the community, they are looking for a variety of events that support that mission.
“TTF is always looking for the best ways to engage with the Trail community,” Rogers said. “We hope to be able to offer the Beer Garden on the Trail again in the future.”
The event will have multiple options for drinks and eats. Local brewery, Texas Beer Co., will have some options to choose from, along with non-alcoholic beverages from the Austin-based company, Weird Beverages.
Tickets will cost 50 dollars in advance or 60 dollars at the door. For children, tickets will be 10 dollars. The ticket will allow for one day of entry into the Beer Garden and access to all non-food vendors. Food will be available for purchase from various food trucks.
“The proceeds from Pop-Up Beer Garden on the Trail benefit The Trail Foundation’s mission to protect, connect, and enhance the Butler Hike-and-Bike Trail at Lady Bird Lake for the benefit of all,” Rogers said. “The Trail sees approximately 4.5 million visits a year, and ecological restoration and infrastructure improvements along this urban green space fall largely to The Trail Foundation.”
