The Craft Brew & Que Festival captures the essence of an All-American afternoon at the lake: beer, barbecue, live music, and more. The backbone of the Craft Brew & Que Festival is, of course, beer. Over 200 craft beers will be highlighted from all over the region. Local, state and regional craft breweries are invited to sample their finest draughts, while larger distributors will represent national and international brews.

Beer Tasting Tickets are $30 each ($40 at the door, if available) for 12 two-ounce samples and a commemorative pint glass. Additional sampling cards are $5 for six two-ounce samples.

Local wineries will join the festivities this year. This portion of the event is separate from the beer tasting event and will require a separate ticket to participate. Guests can purchase a Wine Sample Pass for $30 each ($40 at the door if available) that includes a souvenir wine glass and 30 tickets, with each ticket worth $1. 

The festival also highlights traditional and exotic barbecue offerings from all over the region. From Korean barbecue to exotic meats, vendors are encouraged to offer smaller portions at affordable prices to allow for greater sampling opportunities by attendees.

VIP ticket holders will get all-you-can-eat BBQ samples from Hurtado Barbecue and Tender Smokehouse, in addition to non-alcoholic beverages. There will also be a meet and greet with the owners/pit masters, where VIPs can learn their secrets to Texas' top-rated BBQ. 

There will also be a kids zone and entertainment from Reckless Kelly, Mickey & The Motorcars, and Grace Tyler.
