Kick off Texas Craft Brewers Festival weekend at the new opening night event—Partners in Craft.
Friday, September 29th | 5:30-9:00pm | Fiesta Gardens (East Side Entrance)
Promising to be a uniquely Texan celebration of collaboration, this intimate evening sampling event highlights the close-knit camaraderie and community-oriented spirit of the Texas craft beer industry with a unique lineup of handcrafted Texas beers brewed with help and inspiration from a wide variety of community collaborators—like other Texas breweries, musicians, non-profits, artisans, and more.
In addition to a terrific lineup of beers (including some making their debut at Partners in Craft) the event, held in the courtyard on the East Side of Fiesta Gardens, will also feature local food vendors, live music, a variety of local artisans curated by Austin Flea, and a beautiful view of sunset on Lady Bird Lake.
Tickets for Partners in Craft are $55. Texas Craft Brewers Festival bundle discounts are also available. Check out the Eventbrite page to view and purchase tickets.
What can I drink, eat, and listen to at the event?
Great question. The beer list, music, and food vendors will be announced soon! Not quite ready to buy your tickets? Be sure to RSVP as ‘Interested’ to the Partners in Craft Facebook event to keep up with news.
What does my ticket include?
Tickets include access to the event, a commemorative taster, and 8 sample tickets each redeemable for a 3-ounce pour. Like Texas Craft Brewers Festival, 24oz per person per transaction is in accordance with TABC code. But rest assured, attendees will be able to purchase 8 additional 3oz sample tickets (aka 24 more ounces) for $5/ transaction. Credit/Debit cards will be accepted, but we recommend bringing cash for speedy transactions.
Do you offer Designated Driver tickets for Partners in Craft?
We encourage everyone to get to and from the event safely by utilizing ride share options, public transportation, walking, carpooling, etc. Due to the very intimate nature and limited capacity of this event, we are only able to offer a limited amount of discounted designated driver tickets for purchase and these ticket holders will not be issued a tasting glass/ served alcohol. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss those options.
I am a local vendor who would like to have a booth at Partners in Craft to display and sell my products, who should I contact?
Great. If you're a local artisan (focusing on handcrafted products that fit within Austin Flea's tagline of "Handmade-Local-Vintage") please use this link to reach Austin Flea and scroll down to Texas Craft Brewers Festival - Partners in Craft to complete your application.
