Untapped Fest Coming to Austin


The promoters behind the Texas music and beer festival, Untapped Fest, took to Twitter to announce that Austin has been added to its lineup of festival locations.  Set to take place April 18th, 2015 at Carson Creek Ranch,  the Austin event will feature over 65 breweries with over 200 different beers and eight musical acts to keep the crowd pumped.

We visited the Houston event last year and had a blast. 

We definitely recommend the VIP package, but overall it’s a great event.  Plenty to see and sample, make sure you make it out to the newest stop: Austin.

From Untapped Fest site:

“We have looked to bring Untapped to Austin for several years now so we are thrilled that the circumstances finally aligned to make this possible,” says festival organizer, Matthew Harber of Spune Productions. “We believe Untapped is uniquely tailored to fit the Austin scene in a way that genuinely speaks to both the city’s music and beer culture. We are very, very excited.”

Now in its fourth year, Untapped energetically encapsulates the eclectic culture of quality craft beer while highlighting both emerging bands and established musical talent. Sold-out crowds experience expertly curated lists of breweries and bands. Untapped’s goal is to bring thoughtfully paired music to seasoned craft beer drinkers and to introduce new and exciting craft beers to discerning music fans. As the festival continues to assist in making the connection between beer and music communities, organizers hope to celebrate artists and breweries they know and love.

This year’s band lineup will feature over eight performers including Manchester Orchestra, Phosphorescent, Black Joe Lewis, Jean Grae, Bear Hands, In The Valley Below and additional acts to be announced soon. The beer list will feature over 200 unique craft beers from more than 65 breweries and will reflect both the high quality and special selections festivalgoers have come to expect from the Untapped Festival brand. “We are proud to have worked alongside and featured many of Austin’s fine breweries at previous events and aim for this edition to both showcase and support the culture of this important craft beer community,” says festival organizer, Corey Pond. “It is also safe to assume we bring several breweries with us that are not typically distributed in the Austin area.” The participating brewery list will be announced shortly and the beer list will soon follow.

Untapped will be located at Carson Creek Ranch outside of Austin. Just minutes from downtown Austin, the 20-acre Carson Creek Ranch will host a busy Spring event calendar that features Euphoria, Untapped, Life in Color and Austin Psych Fest.

I've lived in Texas all my life and can't express how much I love this state. I found that I was enjoying these amazing bbq spots and drinking fantastic Texas-made beer and wanted my buddies and I to be able to share them with our readers.
