Spring Plans for Boerne Breweries

Some say there is nothing better than the refreshing taste of an ice-cold craft beer on a hot day.  Here in Boerne, Texas, we are not in short supply of warm-weather days. Well folks, the weather has warmed up, and it’s time to hit the breweries!  All four of Boerne’s breweries have exciting new beers and events on the calendar.  Gather your friends and family and make plans to head on over to one of these local joints for a crafted-beer tasting experience.  You're sure to enjoy an afternoon or evening full of fun!

The big news for the season is the return of Boerne BierFest on April 7th! Your $30 ticket will let you choose samples in a commemorative sampling stein from more than 30 of the best craft beers in Texas. Boerne BierFest will also serve up live music entertainment, a keg toss, a German-themed original art auction, and souvenirs to keep the fun going all afternoon on the Hill Country Mile!

Cibolo Creek Brewing Co-

Spring is going to be BUSY over at Cibolo Creek Brewing Co. this year! In addition to new and exciting brews and fabulously fresh farm-to-table foods (YES, the Greek Lamb Burger is returning!), they have added some new things to their entertainment line-up! Keep up with their Saturday and Sunday LIVE MUSIC line-up on Facebook. If you're a picker and/or a songwriter, come on out on Wednesdays at 6:00pm for Songwriters Night. Also, shake off those Monday blues, gather your team, and compete with/against your friends and neighbors on Trivia Night.  As it just so happens, Mondays are also Pitcher Night!  So, place an order for “apps” to share while you sip and test your trivia skills!

Another fun thing to have on your radar is their new Monthly Main Street Farmer's Market! The next event is scheduled for March 24th.

As always, they will continue to bring on all kinds of new "Small Batch Brews," so keep tabs on their Facebook or Instagram
