Gulf Brew Beer Lineup Announced! July 23, 2011 in Lafayette

Hello beer loving friend and readers! I just wanted to pass on this press release from the organizers of the Gulf Brew Beer Tasting Festival, which will take place July 23rd in Lafayette.  It promises to be one of the biggest beer festivals in the area and is certain to be a good time.  Unfortunately I will not be able to attend, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't!  There looks to be a really good beer lineup, including one of my favorites, Parish Brewing, and also be sure not to miss out on the homebrewers!  They are likely to be the quickest to go.  Cheers!
 
 
Gulf Brew 2011 Beer Tasting Festival
Beer & Band Announcement
Lafayette, LA - Lafayette’s original beer festival is back and better than ever! Gulf Brew 2011 gives you the best specialty and craft brews around—Beer is King at this year’s most anticipated summer event. This beer-tasting festival is a fundraiser for the Acadiana Center for the Arts.
 
Gulf Brew 2011 will be held at Parc International in downtown Lafayette on Saturday, July 23, 2011 from 6:00 – 9:00 p.m. A special pre-taster event will take place from 5:00 – 6:00 p.m. Only 300 pre-taster tickets are available, allowing participants a full hour of tasting and the opportunity to talk one-on-one with brewers without the crowds or long lines.

Band Schedule
5:00 - 5:45 The Von Dukes
With driving beats and timeless rifts, it’s a 21st century spin on the 50’s. From the ashes of Sun Record Artists Gene Vincent, Eddie Cochran, the Stray Cats, Johnny Cash, Hank Williams and Chet Atkins, the Von Dukes throw it together with some Ventures and the Clash and make it their own.

6:00 - 7:00 Rex Moroux
Rex Moroux is an Americana singer/songwriter. His style is influenced by artists such as Townes Van Zandt, Leonard Cohen, Hank Williams, Tammy Wynette and Levon Helm.

7:15 - 8:30 Soul Express Brass Band
The Soul Express Brass Band is Opelousas’s very own jazz brass band.

8:30 - 9:00 DJ Miyagi

New!
This year BikeLafayette, a Lafayette-based bicycle safety and awareness advocacy group, will provide a bicycle corral just outside the gates of Gulf Brew. Bicycle corrals work like a coat check for bicycles. Patrons are issued a claim check in exchange for their bike and BikeLafayette attendants will watch over your bicycle while you are attending Gulf Brew. There is no charge to check your bike; BikeLafayette is providing the bicycle corral as a public service. Riding your bicycle is a great way to get to and from Gulf Brew while helping keep traffic to a minimum and enjoying wonderful downtown Lafayette.
