Downtown Bryan will hold its second annual Cheers to Craft Beer event on July 23, 2016 from 2-6 p.m. The event will feature craft beer tastings inside Downtown retail stores and restaurants. Cheers to Craft Beer is a self-paced walking event. Upon check-in, ticket holders will receive a map of all of the participating locations and can choose which order to sample and visit merchants.
Tickets are now on sale on the Downtown Bryan website for $25 or if you are visiting Downtown, you can pick up tickets from a participating merchant. One Cheers to Craft Beer ticket includes a keepsake tasting glass, a koozie, and a map of all of the participating merchants in Downtown Bryan. (Ticket sales are limited to ages 21 and over; identification will be verified at pickup.) After July 9, online ticket sales will increase to $30. Based on availability, tickets may or may not be available at the door. Last year, this event sold out within the first 15 minutes the day of, so plan ahead and buy your tickets early!
