Taste of Texas

(Dave Fougeron, founder and C.E.O. of Southern Star Brewing Company, conducting a Taste of Texas Class!)

Many of our patrons asked for a beer tasting class so we sat down and taught about the idea. Not wanting to do just some old average tasting we embarked on a Beer Pilgramage Across Texas in search of beers worthy of our attention. As we move across Texas we have and will continue to visit as many Texas Craft breweries as time allows. At each stop we have sat down and talked with the brewery staff and sampled their beers. We then bring back our new knowledge and beer finds and offer them to our patrons in a class we are calling a "Tast of Texas".

These classes enclude samples of beer which are only available during the class. Many of the classes feature a brewer from one of our featured brewerys to sit down with the group and discuse their beer

Our 2022 classes will begin  Oct 8th.  The class is offered Saturday and Sunday at 1:00pm.

Seating is limited and a Taste of Texas ticket is required for entry to the classroom.
