Flying Saucer Hosts Annual Fall Brew Fest s in Austin and Fort Worth

The Flying Saucer in Austin will host its first annual Fall Brew Fest on Saturday, Oct. 4 from noon to 10 p.m. at Triangle Park in Austin and its third annual Fall Brew Fest in Fort Worth on Saturday, Oct. 11 from 2 p.m. to 10 p.m. in the Saucer’s parking lot in Sundance Square.

The Fall Brew Fest will feature five beer tents, each with crafted brews chosen by The Flying Saucer’s own resident beer guru, Keith Schlabs. Featured beers will include rare special releases and cask-conditioned ales. The Austin event also will feature a Frisbee® Golf tournament and live music. For $15, event goers will receive a commemorative glass and tasting card that can be redeemed for a sampling of 10 of the 20 featured beers. Admission to the event is free.

The event will have beers to satisfy everyone, from the casual drinker to the hard-core beer enthusiast, including some that aren’t often available in the Austin and Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex areas. Some of the notable beers that will be at both events are the St. Arnold Devine #7, Ayinger Oktoberfest, Dogfish Head’s Punkin Ale, Avery Brewing Company’s The Kaiser, Sierra Nevada Harvest Northern Hemisphere fresh hop ale, Live Oak Dry-Hopped Cask-Conditioned IPA, Stone Brewing Company’s Smoked Porter and the Victory Brewing Company’s Storm King Imperial Stout draught. The Fort Worth fest also will feature the Rahr & Sons Blind Salamander Pale and the Real Ale Shade Grown Coffee Porter, which is cask-conditioned, and at 1 p.m., the Fort Worth event will have a ceremonial tapping of the Real Ale Cask-Conditioned Dunkel Roggenbier.

Just a general comment... I guess you're ready for Oktoberfest this year?

Since you are really into the brewing thing, you should start a homebrew's competition as a part of FBG's Oktoberfest. I think that would be cool.

A homebrew contest in Fredericksburg has been discussed, but as there in no home brew club here to host the event, I would be dependent on volunteers. I don't think it would be appropriate for Oktoberfest, though. If you're willing to be a judge. . .
