Freetail Brewing Co. will host RealTail II on Aug. 27. The annual festival will feature rare, barrel aged beers from both the local brewpub and Real Ale Brewing Co. from Blanco, in addition to a special collaborate beer developed by the two breweries. The brewers describe the collaboration—RealTail 2011—as an “untraditional double wit using locally sourced nopalitos (cactus pads), a mélange of four spices and agave nectar”.
The tap-list for the day-long event will be released a week prior and posted to Freetail’s webpage and Facebook. Some of the rare beers fans can expect are Freetail’s Bandito, La Muerta 2010, Atê and selections from Real Ale’s Mysterium Verum series.
Freetail Founder and CEO Scott Metzger said that a few more surprises will be in store for visitors that day. “We’ve been stockpiling a thing or two, and it’s never beyond us to have twenty of our beers on tap. I’m not saying that is what we are going to do, but I’m not saying that’s not what we’re going to do.”
Admission to the festival is free and all of the beers served will be available in sample and full-serving sizes. Doors open at 11:30 a.m. Freetail Brewing Co. is at 4035 NW. Loop 1604 W.
