- Event Details
Beer, barbeque, and country music–the three staples that most people would argue DEFINE our great state and the three things that (when combined) make up a pretty kick-ass, Texas-style July 4th festival. Yes, JULY 4TH is almost upon us, and while we have a long list of patriotic parties that you should check out, the 2nd Annual Brew-B-Que Festival is one not to be overlooked. Set in the City Park of Buda, Texas (a town about 13 miles from Austin), this July 4th Fest is an annual BBQ Cook-Off and Beer Festival that will no doubt exceed your expectations with entertainment from top country artists, free food, lumberjacks, chihuahua races, beer games, and a stellar firework show (duh). From 11 AM to 11 PM, come celebrate July 4th “the Texas way” at the 2nd Annual Brew-B-Que Fest.
The name says it all. Brew-B-Que Fest is partially a beer tasting event that sees both professional and home brewers showcasing their creations and discussing the art of brewing Texas’ favorite beverage. Throughout the fest, $9 sample trays will be available, allowing patrons to sample 6 beers (in 4 oz servings), and beer games will go on throughout the day, giving you the chance to exhibit your skills in games like Washers, Quarters, Darts, Horseshoes, Coaster Flipping, Empty Keg Tossing, Beer Trivia, Beer Belly Competition, Beer Pong and more. To top it all off, Austin Home Brew will be on stage doing 2 live brewing demonstrations and fielding a Q&A session.
5,000 POUNDS OF FREE BBQ! That’s enough to sell me right there. Barbeque being the “unofficial” state food of Texas (and BBQ being the other half of the festival’s title), it is only fitting that this fest has a BBQ challenge. Pitting (no pun intended) teams against each other to see who can make the best finger-lickin’ food in central Texas, the challenge will be filmed for a full length documentary on BBQ techniques, teams, and beer. For a team entry fee of $100, you get 150 lbs. of meat, but make sure you register NOW because the deadline is June 30th.
