The San Antonio AIDS Foundation (SAAF) launches the Cerveza Classic Brew Tasting & Pub Hop this coming Saturday, 1:30pm.- 7 p.m. on the San Antonio River Walk.
This inaugural event is your opportunity to sample tasty craft brews, learn about a dozen different beers and mingle with community members while supporting a leading local HIV/AIDS organization.
“San Antonio has been thought of as a beer-drinking city, and this event will be an opportunity for people to learn more about new beers as they develop their palates… Plus, we believe we will reach another demographic that might not be familiar with the San Antonio AIDS Foundation,” says David Ewell, executive director of SAAF.
Breweries highlighted at this event include Blue Moon, Leinekugel, New Belgium, Abita Beer and Deschutes Breweries. SAAF is sponsoring the tastings and complimentary drinks. Stops on the River Walk will include Dick’s Last Resort, Pat O’Brian’s, On The Half Shell and Leapin’ Lizard Pub.
Cerveza Classic tasting participants will receive a free beer from among those sampled. Other beers among those being sampled may be purchased at a discounted rate. Each stop will last approximately 50 minutes. A beer company representative will offer an interactive information session. Additionally, each participant will receive a t-shirt, goodie bag and take part in raffle prize giveaways.
The Cerveza Classic begins at Dick’s Last Resort and is expected to last no longer than 5 hours, ending no later then 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $40 and can be purchased online at www.cervezaclassic.com. No one under the age of 21 will be admitted and an I.D. will be required.
