Katy Wild West Brew Fest 2016 is only three days away. In just 72 hours, more than 125 breweries will descend upon Katy Mills Mall, located at 5000 Katy Mills Circle in the west Houston suburb of Katy, Texas where they will serve more than 500 different malt beverages to the craft beer curious.
The main event is scheduled for Saturday, April 23, 2016 and runs from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. Those with VIP tickets gain admission at 3 p.m. VIP and General Admission tickets are still available and can be purchased here. There is also a Launch Party at the same location, scheduled for April 22, 2016 from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. Tickets for the Launch Party are also available and can obtained through Eventbrite when you purchase your festival tickets for Saturday.
Beer is the main attraction at the Katy Wild West Brew Fest, but there is much more, including a Brewer’s Competition; Live music from five different bands; delicious food; and other assorted fun. Texas Beer Bus has teamed up with the Wild West Brew Fest this year and will offer transportation from three different locations. And since the event is held at the Katy Mills Mall, it’s within walking distance from several hotels. You can purchase a package that includes the festival and hotel through the Eventbrite link.
Beer, entertainment, and convenience are reason enough to attend the Katy Wild West Brew Fest, but there is more. This festival, selected as the Top Beer Festival in the USA by Beeryeti.com, is one of a very small number of festivals in the United States that donates 100 percent of proceeds to local charities and non- profit organizations. You read that correctly. There are NO management fees or payments made to organizers, workers, etc. The Katy Wild West Brew Fest is 100 percent volunteer driven with all money directed to the local community.
Houston has several notable beer festivals each year but few can match what the Katy Wild West Brew Fest brings to the table. The Houston area was hit by heavy rainfall early in the week, but the Katy Wild West Brew Fest and Launch Party will continue as planned. Time is running out, so go to Eventbrite and purchase your tickets today!
