2019 Dia de La Muerta Festival & Bottle Release
Another year has passed and another batch of our beloved La Muerta has been brewed in honor of our departed loved ones. Please join us in celebrating our dead this year on Saturday, November 2nd at the production brewery located at 2000 S. Presa Street. This year we will see the return of an informal bottle share in the taproom and a festival of Freetail beers in the brewery. Due to TABC clarification of our license restrictions, we are unable to present beers from other breweries, but will fill in with more of our own libations. I am very excited to share our three variants this year with the help from our friends at three distilleries:
Tattersall Rye, Minneapolis, MN
Andalusia Texas Single Malt, Blanco, TX
Balcones Texas Single Malt, Waco, TX
A fourth variant--available only to VIP ticket holders-- will be an Old-Fashioned Inspired Remedy, blended from the barrels above and flavored with cherries, orange peel, and bitter spices. As always, we will have several draft-only variants available as well as special selections from our cellar. For those who simply cannot wait, we will have a preview of some of these new releases at our original location on 1604 (4035 N Loop 1604 E) the night before-- Friday, November 1st beginning at 6PM.
Tickets will go on sale at 10:00AM C.S.T. on Monday, October 7. Please read below for more details.
