Today marks the beginning of the North Texas Beer Fest! While the majority of the festival including the much coveted sampling session take place tomorrow, the event itself begins today.

The inaugural event today is the “VIP Brews Cruise” taking place on the largest catamaran in Texas. Meet the brewers, reps, and sponsors, and grill them about their deepest, darkest beer-related secrets. Ok, maybe not that last part.

VIP tickets include the cruise, as well as festival admission, T-shirt, and glass. Cruise tickets are also available separately.
