Big Brew

Big Brew, a week-long celebration of craft beer at the George R. Brown Convention Center, kicks off October 20, 2014 with events around the city, followed by larger events October 23-26 at the GRB. Designed for beer lovers in Houston and across the nation, participants will enjoy more than 1,000 featured beers, meet the best and brightest brewers in the craft beer industry, and quench their thirst on never-before-tasted brews and rare finds.

Offerings for the week-long event include VIP experiences, pub crawls, craft beer dinners, food and beer pairings, beer education seminars, intimate meet-and-greet opportunities, a Best in Texas event focused on Texas offerings only and two grand tasting sessions. The festival is sponsored by Spec’s Wine, Spirits and Finer Foods.

“Spec’s is thrilled to be a part of this citywide craft beer event,” said Lisa Rydman, third generation Spec’s family. “We’ve long focused on making available hard-to-find craft beers, especially those produced in Texas, and on providing products and craft beer education for enthusiasts as well as those just joining the craft beer movement. It’s an exciting time for the craft beer industry.”
