February Beer Tasting 2024
Our Motto: "Life is too short to drink bad beer!"
The Texas Renaissance Festival is the Nation’s largest, most acclaimed Renaissance theme park. Open to the public every Saturday, Sunday, and Thanksgiving Friday, October 3rd through November 29th. Additionally it is the home of Brigadoon Brewery & Brew School. Perhaps the only brewery operating on the grounds of a Renaissance Festival brewing beer with period equipment and traditional methods and then serving it back to the public.
All of our brews are all grain, unfiltered and hand crafted. Many have been reverse engineered to meet period ingredients to the best of our ability.
Our biggest seller is our Black Plague Ale. Our patrons asked for a dark strong ale and we listened. This beer started with the usual experimental process being tested and refined. Lab results show it weighs in at 10.46 % ABV and 86 IBU. This one is a must have.
Our Mission is to educate as many minds and palates as possible about the important role of beer in the development of civilization and the qualities and attributes of craft beer.
The Brigadoon Brewery & Brew Schools mission is to educate the masses to the history of beer and how to make it. Listed below are several offerings to help the individual gain a better understanding of beer.
Hear ye, hear ye! Listen well, my good ladies (and gentlemen!) and gather near for all the latest happenings at Brigadoon, where our crew will be and the latest for our Texas Renaissance Festival location.
Beginning in 2013 The Texas Renaissance Festival, Deep South Barrels and Brigadoon Brewery have partenered to conduct a contest to allow one lucky patron to be crowned The Brew King/Queen for the season. This tradition continues today. Patrons can submit possible names for the Märzen-Oktoberfest beer which will be tapped on opening weekend during Oktoberfest. The top five names are selected by the brewery staff and then patrons are allowed to vote on the winner. The beer name with the most votes is the winner and the patron who submitted the name is crowned The Brew King or Queen for the season.
