Boerne Bier Fest opened to chilly temperatures but excited visitors. The event was one of the most well run events that’s taken place on the square. Check in was speedy, almost zero wait times for bathrooms and beer, and everyone could move around without being encumbered by other guests. It’s a fantastic celebration of German brew culture, and showcased Boerne’s personality …and of course had great beer!
Bier Fest visitors braved the chilly Spring weather to taste some of the available brews.
ALAMO Beer had my favorite new IPA.
Lorelei Brewing Company is my pick for the most beautiful artwork. I’m a sucker for mermaids! Rough Diamond Brewery was one of my absolute favorite finds of the event. They’re open now and will be having all kinds of new and exciting events at their tasting room! Tusculum Brewing Co. provided heaters and hot coco to Bier Fest attendees and showcased what will go into their new Brewhaus once it’s open.
They also offered chicken bingo which brought quite a few laughs to the event.
I happened to win the first round of chicken bingo. Lucky number 13!
The Beer Hoisting Contest proved to be a very entertaining affair. Men and women competed against each other and the clock to see who should be victorious!
Special shout out to Freetail Beer because they’re always so awesome!
Boerne Bier Fest proceeds go to the Hill Country Council for the Arts, which chooses different arts organizations to benefit from the funds raised every year.
Attending Bier Fest was a great way to get out and support our local arts community and have a fun day discovering new favorite local beers!
The festival will definitely secure a place as the best beer festival in Boerne.
