How do you top bringing in the largest state in the union to your beer festival? You bring in the second largest state in the union.

Rumors about Texas being the next state invited to the Schlafly Repeal of Prohibition Festival swirled when it was discovered that local brewing legend Drew Huerter was moving to Dallas.

Well, last night Schlafly officially announced via their Twitter feed that we will be seeing three different breweries from the Lone Star State visiting the St. Louis area. On April 14th, we’ll be seeing: Rahr & Sons Brewing Company from Fort Worth, Real Ale Brewing out of Blanco, and of course Deep Ellum Brewing out of Dallas.

Drew Huerter is the head brewer at Deep Ellum and for many of us, this will be the first opportunity to try some of his beers since Deep Ellum opened on December 17th. I personally couldn’t be more excited about this announcement and can’t wait for April 14th to arrive.

Schlafly put out this hilarious video to announce the state, so be sure to check it out:
