Flying Saucer's BeerFeast Benefits Pints for Prostates

Tickets are now on sale for Flying Saucer's 2017 BeerFeast, which will benefit Pints for Prostates. For all the details, see the release below:

SUGAR LAND, Texas, Aug. 1, 2017 – Tickets are now on sale for Flying Saucer Draught Emporium’s 6th annual 2017 Texas BeerFeast in Sugar Land, one of the South’s premier outdoor craft beer events. The 2017 festival, which is set for 2 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 28 at Sugar Land Town Square, will feature more than 100 high-quality craft brews from around the world. A portion of all proceeds will benefit Pints for Prostates.

A pioneer on the craft beer scene since opening its first beer bar in 1995, Flying Saucer was also a leader in the beer festival movement when they hosted their first BeerFeast in Fort Worth in 2005. Although in prior years Flying Saucer has hosted as many as four separate Texas BeerFeasts, the family of taprooms is returning to its roots, combining its annual celebrations of the world’s best beer into a single festival. The consolidation comes with a new nonprofit partnership, a host of food vendors and more of the high-quality and rare brews beer lovers crave.
