Dear Fellow Beer Lovers,

Here’s some bummer news to add to a bummer year: After much consideration, it saddens us to announce that the 15th annual San Antonio Beer Festival will not be happening in 2020. 

It takes hundreds of people, months of prep, and a mind-boggling amount of energy and resources to organize and produce Texas’ largest single-day beer festival. Given all that we know about Covid-19,  we cannot host the San Antonio Beer Festival this October in a way that feels safe and celebratory for the thousands of guests, breweries, sponsors and staff we typically see each year.

That said, if you are in the position to do so, we ask that you consider donating your ticket, rather than taking a refund. The value of your donation will help make next year’s San Antonio Beer Festival possible, as well as go toward our nonprofit partner, the San Antonio Food Bank. All you have to do is select "YES" on this page.

If you would prefer a refund, you can select that option instead. Please make your selection prior to October 16, 2020. Any unclaimed orders will be automatically donated after this date.

Finally, these Covid times have not been kind to our beloved breweries. We know you’re just as thirsty for good beer as ever, so we encourage you to patronize your local brewery, stock your delivery cart with brews from Texas brands, and order San Antonio-made beer when dining in or taking out. 

Thank you for your continued support, love and understanding. We look forward to raising a pint with you at next year’s festival. Until then, stay safe and thirsty.  

The San Antonio Beer Festival Team
