Craft Pride Presents: PARTNERS in CRAFT
Our Friday opening night event PARTNERS in CRAFT is taking a little breather this year, so our friends at Craft Pride are bringing the fun to the main event! Stop by this booth to experience 10 unique beers created by Texas brewers in collaboration with their fellow Texas crafts-folk and community members.
Blue Owl Brewing & Hold Out Brewing Horseplay Cold IPA – Cold IPA
This year’s official VIP beer of Texas Craft Brewers Festival!
A fun collaboration between Blue Owl Brewing and Hold Out brewing that combines the strengths of both. Cold IPAs are a hybrid style that people love to debate the technicalities of. Isn’t it just an IPL? Well, kinda-not-really. This fresh take is a slightly tart, dry, clean pilsner base but with super-modern tropical fruity, citrusy hops. So it’s fruity-juicy-hoppy IPA meets crispy rice lager finish. The slight acidity makes the finish bright and inviting and accentuates the fruit flavors from the hops. Now we’re all hip and trendy!

Strong Brown with Roasted Sweet Potato, Maple, and Ghost Chile. Conceived and designed in collaboration with the team at Craft Pride.
