Flying Saucer Sugar Land Hosts Inaugural Beer Festival

By Ryan Jones

BeerFeast 2012 will feature more than 40 breweries and 60 different craft beers carefully selected by Flying Saucer’s own resident beer guru, Keith Schlabs, and Sugar Land Flying Saucer general manager, Jake Rainey. In addition, very rare and limited-release beers will be tapped every hour on the hour from 1 to 7 p.m.

Tickets to BeerFeast 2012 are $30, and for a very limited time can be purchased at a discounted price of $25 online at www.Beerfeast2012.com or at the Saucer, beginning on Sept. 13. You’ll pay the regular price after Sept. 27, and on the day of the festival, if there are any tickets still available, they will be $40 at the door.

Ticket purchase includes admission to the festival, a 2012 BeerFeast tasting glass and a tasting card good for 12 samples of any of the 60 festival beers. A very limited number of VIP tickets will also be available for purchase this year. They are expected to sell out quickly and will only be available online prior to the festival for $65. In addition to the tasting card and glass, VIP ticket purchasers will receive early admission to the festival at noon, food vouchers redeemable at any of the festival food trucks, a 2012 BeerFeast T-shirt and a VIP Brew Caddy lanyard to hold their taster glass. Also, all VIP ticket holders will have access to a VIP only line for the rare brew tappings and will be able to sample the hourly brews 10 minutes prior to general ticket holders. Additional 12-sample taster cards will be available for purchase by general admission and VIP ticket holders only for $6 on the day of the festival. There will be designated driver tickets available for $15, which will include admission to the festival and complimentary soft drinks.

This year’s BeerFeast fun is only for those 21 and older who have purchased a ticket to attend. For more information, call 281-242-7468 or email info@Beerfeast2012.com.
