Hemisfair to Host Free Monthly Beer Tastings
Hemisfair Park Area Redevelopment Corporation (HPARC) and Glazer’s Distributors are teaming up to produce a pop-up beer garden on the third Tuesday of each month beginning December 18th. The new San Antonio tradition will feature live music, gourmet food trucks and complimentary seasonal beer samplings to suit different monthly themes. With Hemisfair recently bejeweled for the Mayor’s Light Up Downtown contest, December’s “Spread the Cheer” theme will showcase country music and new brews from the Tenth & Blake Brewery, sure to charm even the grumpiest of holiday scrooges.
“By taking advantage of the City’s Downtown Tuesday free-parking initiative, we aim to attract locals and their lawn chairs from all zip codes to mingle at Hemisfair, San Antonio’s front porch,” says Andres Andujar, CEO of HPARC. “We hope that Third Brewsday at Hemisfair becomes a beloved community engagement, encourages vitality downtown, and helps us transform San Antonio.”
The very first Third Brewsday sponsored by Glazer’s Distributors will be held on Tuesday, December 18 from 5:00-9:00PM at the S. Alamo entrance to Hemisfair. Of-age guests can enjoy a complimentary tasting of the following artisanal brews while they last: Batch 19, Henry Weinhard’s, Redd’s Apple Ale, and Third Shift. Visitors are encouraged to bring blankets or lawn chairs and soak up live music from Texas Country artists Gabe Garcia, Mario Flores, and Chris Salinas.
The event is free and open to the public. Free parking for designated drivers will be available at all City-operated parking garages, lots, and meters starting at 5:00PM. Hemisfair also encourages the use of public transportation. For more information on Downtown Tuesday including a map of free parking, visit: www.sanantonio.gov/dtops/downtowntuesday.aspx.
