Local Craft Brewers in the Spotlight
Hemisfair’s Third Brewsday to host SA Beer Week Official Closing Ceremony
SAN ANTONIO, TX (MAY 7, 2013)—The locals have spoken, and Hemisfair has listened. Hemisfair has partnered with six local breweries to host the closing ceremonies of San Antonio Beer Week 2013 on Tuesday, May 21 at the regularly scheduled Third Brewsday pop-up beer garden from 5-9pm. In contrast to previous Brewsdays, this Beer Week celebration will offer free craft beer samples to of-age guests all night long and a chance to mingle with the brewers themselves!
“The opportunity to be included in San Antonio Beer Week is outstanding and illustrates the public’s love for Hemisfair,” says Andres Andujar, CEO of Hemisfair Park Area Redevelopment Corporation. “Hemisfair will be home to a variety of community celebrations once redevelopment unveils one of the world’s great public spaces. Brewsday is just a taste.”
San Antonio Beer Week is dedicated to celebrating local beer and the community that enjoys it. Over fifteen tasty brews from Ranger Creek, The Granary Cue and Brew, Branchline, Freetail, Blue Star, and Alamo Breweries will be flowing from the tap, while the San Antonio Cerveseros talk shop on home brewing. Cryin’ DT Buffkin and the Bad Breath will be singing southern blues while visitors play washers on the lawn. Bite Street Bistro, Ridiculously Gourmet, and Lagniappe Today food trucks will all be serving up delicious grub to compliment the tasty brews, and guests should arrive early for a commemorative tasting mug.
Third Brewsday at Hemisfair, will be held on May 21st, from 5:00-9:00PM at the South Alamo Street entrance to Hemisfair. Guests are encouraged to bring lawn chairs or blankets for optimal outdoor relaxation. This will be the last Third Brewsday to make way for Movies by Moonlight and the summer heat. (Don’t worry; we will sound an alarm when the tradition starts back up again.)
The event is free and open to the public. Free parking for designated drivers will be available at all City-operated parking garages, lots, and meters starting at 5:00PM. Hemisfair also encourages the use of public transportation. For more information on Downtown Tuesday, including a map of free parking, visit www.sanantonio.gov/dtops/downtowntuesday.aspx.
