Dinner parties have fallen out of fashion and thank goodness for that. My one-bedroom apartment isn’t conducive to hosting a mob of guests and I am not too keen on spending hours prepping food that will leave a trail of destruction in my tight kitchen. My curated wine collection and well-appointed bar cart are reserved for my closest comrades to imbibe and not for that friend-of-a-friend that showed up unannounced and empty handed. Personally, I prefer something more casual and less labor intensive to gather my friends around. I’m talking about bottle shares and takeout food.
Makers Curated Experiences brings you CRAFTed, a brew-centric series made for the front porch sipper to the small batch snob and everyone in between! The first event brings two great things together, craft beer and delicious fare! Join us for a tour of three local breweries that will feature one of their beers paired with food. Brewery stops include Southerleigh Fine Food & Brewery, Dorćol Distilling + Brewing Co, and Roadmap Brewing Co. Food partners include Fork & Garden and Chocollazo.
Raise your glasses, beer lovers! Benefiting the San Antonio Food Bank, the San Antonio Beer Festival presented by H-E-B, is back for another round.

Last June, Vista Brewing hosted the first annual Destination Brew Fest on their scenic grounds. This boutique beer festival benefitted the Texas Brewshed Alliance and featured a wonderful slew of lager and farmhouse beers from many of our favorite local breweries. We attended this festival with a single roll of Kodak Portra 800 and our interest piqued.
It’s Monday and it feels like it. That’s why we’re thinking about our weekend and wishing it hadn’t flown by. But we spent it having fun and that has a way of speeding life along. That and copious amount of lagers in late July in Tejas, thanks to the fine folks that run Austin Beer Guide.
