Craft the Night Away is a craft beer tasting of beers, ciders, and meads from approximately 30 Texas breweries and focused on seasonal and local selections. NEW in 2020 we are adding a fiddling contest (5-10pm) sanctioned by Texas Old Time Fiddlers Association.
The festival is in Downtown Sherman on the Courthouse Square, Saturday, August 1, 2020.
The fiddling is 5-10pm.
The beer tasting is 6-10pm.
The ticket ($25*) includes a souvenir tasting glass for sampling 8 different beers, ciders, and meads (24 ounces total) between 6-10 PM. Additional tasting cards are available for purchase: 8 (eight) 3-ounce tastings for $5 (cash only.) Please take good care of your tasting glass since we will not be issuing extras to those who break them! The event will also have live music, food trucks, and artisan/craft vendor booths.
(No ticket is needed for attending only the fiddling contest.)
