While it’s always fun to drink Schlafly beer, the Repeal of Prohibition festival provides a fantastic chance to try beers from around the country that you may not have ever sampled before.  And, even if you have had them, how often have you had a chance to try them in your own backyard?

At over 268,581 square miles Texas is the second largest state in the union. It’s no wonder we’re getting some big time breweries to attend this year’s festival.  We’re going to see beers from  Rahr & Sons Brewing Company from Fort Worth, Real Ale Brewing out of Blanco, and of course Deep Ellum Brewing out of Dallas.
