Now in its third year, the Boerne BierFest is scheduled for Saturday, April 6, 2019, and it promises to be an attraction that’s worth the trip to the Texas Hill Country for those who love beer. That’s right. Just a quick drive up I-10, northwest from San Antonio, and you’ll find yourself in some of the prettiest country you’ve ever seen, preparing to make the most of a Texas town that’s become a Lone Star State destination for zythofiles – those who love beer and all things beer-related.

Boerne’s history as a German settlement of Central Texas may have a little bit to do with the fact residents appear to be aficionados of all things that pour nicely into a stein—and taste delicious coming out of it! But there also appears to be a concentration of those who have enjoyed a burgeoning brewery renaissance in Boerne which makes this as great a place to imbibe Texas beer as Fredericksburg is for Texas wine. Yes, it’s that good.

Rob Ziegler, board member of the Hill Country Council for the Arts and a coordinator for this successful annual event, reported that Boerne has taken on its title as a beer destination in the Texas Hill Country with pride. With German heritage going back a century and a half, something of this nature was bound to happen in Central Texas, and we’re certainly glad it did! This year’s event will also see a new development that craft beer brewers will love – the addition of the Homebrewer Showdown! Heritage isn’t the only thing fueling the emerging craft beer resurgence in the area. As it turns out, there’s simply a powerful passion for brewing in and around Boerne, and it shows. This year’s bierfest event will feature 30 craft breweries from Texas and beyond, but in advance of that, on March 2, 2019, at Boerne Brewery, those who are home-based brewmasters can also throw their hat in the ring for top honors as homebrew champion!
