This has become somewhat of a tradition with Texas On Tap, once a year we host a beach beer brewau featuring some of the world's best Hawaiian beer paired with authentic Hawaiian BBQ. We featured the portfolio of beers from the Maui Brewing Company, and had a feast of Hawaiian short ribs provided by John Wolfe. DELICIOUS!

There is absolutely no better way to kick-off the North Texas celebration of Oktoberfest then sampling great German beer. This year we brought in one of the most recognized brands in the world, Munich's Hofbrau. And thanks to our local representative, Julie, we were also extended samples of other regional European beers including Steigl and Staropramen. Thanks Julie!

The October event was a great experience for Texas On Tap, we brought in a brewer new to the Texas market this year. The Goose Island Brewery out of Chicago began distribution in Texas in 2013, and we showcased a sampling of their portfolio, including their vintage series. If you're ever in Chicago be sure to stop by one of the two brewpubs, they always have a full line-up of their beers on tap. Thanks to John and Reva with Goose Island for joining for the night and giving us the history of this fast growing brewery. Check out our events page for details of the next planned event!
We finished our structured events of 2013 with a favorite of Texas On Tap, the Brooklyn Brewery. But this year we added some of their lesser known products, including Sorachi Ace, Cuvee La Boite, and their 25th Silver Anniversay Lager. These beers are great! A HUGE thank you to Nadine for joining us to discuss the history of the brewery and the beers we sampled. Brooklyn is a big supporter of Texas On Tap and we love their beers.

We look forward to sharing a drink with you at our next gathering.
