Why?
Why not?  Basically we’re passionate about great beer & great music and felt like there were thousands of like-minded people who would want to come hang out with us in a great spot and sample a wide range of amazing beers and tunes.  If that doesn’t sound like a good time then this probably isn’t for you.

We fully anticipate lines at the event as many people will likely arrive early.  We will be pre-processing people in lines (checking IDs, ensuring you’re in the proper line, etc.) to ensure the initial admission lines move as quickly as possible.  Within the event the beers/breweries in higher demand will likely have lines but we expect them to move quickly.  While at the event please be courteous to those behind you in line and try to limit conversations with brewery representatives when possible. Bottom line, if there’s a line that means it’s probably pretty good.

No, you will not be allowed to bring any sort of chair but there will be plenty of seating available!

What kinds of beers will be available at the festival?
In short, only really good to out of this freaking world awesome beers. The event is limited to Craft & Import Breweries only.  You will not find any giant macro brews at Untapped.  We will have a wide range of options for the hardcore beer geek and the newbie.

Will there be any special beers I can’t buy at the store?
Abso-freaking-lutely. We’ve aspired to put together the greatest single-day compilation of beers in the history of Texas.  That’s a mouthful, but with all the extremely limited beers, first time releases & event specific brews we’re pretty dang proud of the list. Also, considering the event is DRAFT BEER ONLY there’s a number of brews we’ll be offering that are never available in stores.

How will the beers be served?
Concert + Beer & VIP “Preferred Tasting” Ticket Holders will be given a sampling cup in which 2 oz samples will be poured (12 per ticket).  During the VIP Session ONLY 2 oz samples will be served to make sure as many people as possible get tastes of all the rare/unusual brews.  Additional Beer Sampling Cards may be purchased for $5 each at the event.

Why don’t I get unlimited samples?
By law, we are only allowed to offer 24 oz of beer at any one time.  Considering the rarity (and cost, this ain’t the cheap stuff), $5 for an additional 24 oz – or even 12 oz-  of these brews is a smokin’ deal.

What if I lose or break my sampling glass?
Well then you’re… Nah, just kidding.  BUT, we will have a limited supply of replacement glasses available and you can purchase them at the entry gate for $5 each.

What if I have a NOT Frequently Asked Question – who do I ask?
Click here to email the event organizers and we’ll get back to you with an answer as soon as possible.  Also, feel free to post it on the Untapped Festival Facebook page or Tweet at us.
