Camp Beer II

Camp Beer is a fun and unique opportunity to learn about craft beer and the brewing industry. The price of attendance is actually for a lecture from Kevin Floyd, the beer master at the Anvil Bar & Refuge, but it does include free samples of beer. It just so happens that it's 20+ highly rated beers, most of which are not available for purchase in Texas.

Camp Beer is a fund raising event put on by Live It Big, a non-profit organization that assists small and start-up charities to grow by raising money for them and providing administrative assistance. The first Camp Beer event was held back in December 2009 and the second one takes place this Sunday afternoon. But if you don't already have a ticket, its way too late to try and get one now. All 30 tickets for the event, priced at $50 each, sold out in less then a day. Although Kevin Floyd may give a great talk about craft beer, I think it may have had something to do with the lineup of beers that will be available to sample:

You're certainly not going to find a list of beers like that anywhere around here. I was unable to attend the first Camp Beer, but I have my ticket for this one. After reviewing the list, I see that there's only a couple of beers that I've tried before, so I'm definitely looking forward to it.
