Perhaps the most innovative brewery in Texas is having their 4th anniversary party on Saturday, May 13th at Das Lokal Tap Room at New Braunfels Brewing Company. If you skipped Wurstfest in New Braunfels this year, you won’t want to miss this event since this is when Kelly, Nathan, and the team unleash some rarely-seen beers that you can’t get anywhere else. Music will be provided by the Rick Lugo Band and you’ll be able to grab food from the Texas PO Boys food truck as well.
As I mentioned, the beer selection is going to be outstanding with three bars stationed to tend to thirsty Texans wanting to try some unique beers. The current lineup stands as such:
