Texas Fly Fishing & Brew Festival
The Texas Fly Fishing & Brew Festival will help experienced anglers up their game, and introduce a new generation of enthusiasts to this irresistible and surprisingly accessible pastime.
Unique to the event is a focus on microbrewery beer. With paid admission, festival attendees 21 years and older receive tasting tickets to sample a variety of locally handcrafted brews. Breweries selected to participate in this year’s event include Four Corners Brewing Co., Oak Highlands Brewery, Real Ale Brewing Co., Sweetwater Brewery, and Tupps. All of the participating breweries will have staff on hand to explain what sets microbrewed beer apart, why and how certain ingredients yield different flavors, and how to brew and taste different types of beer. The festival’s microbrew component has become so popular that a waiting list now exists for breweries that wish to participate.
Instructors and speakers will include Jason Randall, Blane Chocklett, Ed Jaworowski, Landon Mayer, Mac Brown, Mike Tayloe, Dave Whitlock, Steve Dally, Peter Stitcher, Jerry Hamon, Dutch Baughman, Fishy Fullum, Fred Hannie, and Matt Bennett.
