Craft Brew Pavilion
Awesome local and national brews and a few grand tastings!
We've been asked about draught beer - and now we're in with a vengeance! Hosted by the Flying Saucer, our "Craft Brew Pavilion" is located near the Bank of Texas Stage with a great view of the performances in a shaded setting. Six taps of local and national brews will be available, served up in classic pint fashion, for only 6 coupons.
The following will be rotated through our taps in the Craft Brew Pavilion (F5).
- Coors Light
- Blue Moon Belgian
- Blue Moon Seasonal
- Rahr Red
- Rahr Ugly Pug
- Rahr Blonde
- Rahr Storm
- Killian's Irish Stout
- Lone Star Bock
- Stella Artois
NOTE: Other domestic beer may be available at our booth located at 7th Street and Main Street, which opens at 6:30 PM on Friday evening.
Also featured will be several grand tasting sessions presented by Certified Cicerones® from the Flying Saucer group of restaurants. These tastings will feature a flight of five specialty brews, and participants will receive a full pint of their favorite and can keep the commemorative glass etched with the 2014 MAIN ST. festival logo.
These seated tastings will be limited to 24 persons per session, and advance reservations are required! To make your reservation, simply stop by the Craft Beer Pavilion and place your name on the list for the session you'd like to attend. Sessions will start promptly at the appointed time; therefore, anyone who is not present will forfeit their seat to someone on the waiting list. You are of course, welcome to reschedule.
Our host and partner for the tasting sessions at the Craft Brew Pavilion is the Flying Saucer Draught Beer Emporium, an incredible Downtown restaurant with locations throughout the Metroplex, and around the country.
The Certified Cicerone® must have detailed knowledge of retail beer storage and service issues, excellent knowledge of modern beers and styles with some familiarity with beer history and historical styles, competence in identifying flawed beers and recognizing appropriate and in-appropriate flavors in modern beer styles, good understanding of the beer ingredients and familiarity with the brewing process and its common variations plus knowledge of beer pairing principles and the ability to recommend reasonable beer pairings for common foods.
