San Antonio Beer Festival Heads East


  • Andrew Lopez
The 11th annual San Antonio Beer Festival has found a new home. 

After two years at Maverick Park, the brew bacchanal will head to the city's East Side on October 15, 2016 using Dignowity and Lockwood Parks as backdrops.

The move, which drew support from Mayor Ivy Taylor, District 2 city councilman Alan Warrick and Dignowity Hill Neighborhood Association president Brian Dillard, will nearly double the footprint for the event that brings more than 400 beers from across the globe. 

Benefiting the San Antonio Food Bank, the San Antonio Beer Festival welcomed 5,000 brew-lovers in 2015 and raised $89,329 for the organization.
