I received a media alert this morning indicating that Mayor Parker will be holding a press conference on Tuesday, January 14th to officially announce the Big Brew DestiNATION, a week's worth of craft beer events from Oct 20th to the 26th. I guess we'll learn more on Tuesday, but the BigBrewHouston.com website indicates:
One full week packed with fun and engaging events all over Houston culminating at the George R. Brown for three Big Brew Days.
The Events section on the website already lists a few events including a beer and food pairing, pub crawl and tasting sessions. I assume more information will be announced and released at the event on Tuesday an in the months to come.
We've certainly come a long way from years of having no beer festivals in Houston.
