The 4th Annual Houston Beer Week is on its way. Festivities get underway starting Saturday, November 9th. A myriad of craft beer-related events will take place all over the Houston area and we hope you will attend several over the course of the 8 days of craft beer goodness.This year, Houston Beer Week partners with Untapped Festival Houston. The Untapped Festival takes place on Saturday, November 16th at Discovery Green park in downtown Houston. They have a slew of bands lined up and will play host to over 60 breweries. It will definately be the place you'll want to be on the final day of beer week!The beer portion of the festival will feature more than 200 different beers from over 60 different breweries and will also mark the end of Houston Beer Week.The festival will feature musical performances by The Walkmen, Heartless Bastards, Big Black Delta, The Tontons, Wild Moccasins and The Suffers, with more bands to be announced in the coming months.At its origin, Untapped was designed by its organizers as an event equally focused on quality music and beer, a balance uncommon at music festivals and rarely found at beer events. The aim is not about the quantity of selection but rather the curating of the best in both craft beer and emerging local and national bands. A few of our favorite things so to speak!The addition of local artisans, quality food vendors, and unique locations add texture to each event and create a vibrant village of activity. What started as a self-serving shindig designed to showcase our personal interests turned out to be something that resonates in a way that is meaningful to us and our supporters!Untapped Festival Houston takes the place of The Draft, but will continue to help efforts to provide fundraising to Live It BIG, a 501(c)(3) non-profit that raises money for cancer patients and their families as well as underprivileged school children.Please stay tuned to the Houston Beer Week website for the latest information on the events to be scheduled for beer week.
