The Monsters Of Beer Charity Festival is the opening event celebrating Houston Beer Week. 100% of the Monsters of Beer Charity Festival net proceeds go to Live It Big , which is a 501(c)(3) organization that supports startup and small charities including Friday Harbour, an amazing group that provides housing for the families of cancer patients in the Houston Medical Center, and Stepping Stones Charter School -- a phenomenal school serving low-income and at-risk children in southwest Houston. This year we are inviting somewhere in the realm of 50 breweries, expanding the invite to out-of-state breweries as well as our local Texas breweries.

Monsters of Beer is the only Houston beer festival that donates 100% of all net proceeds to charity. In order to do this, we do whatever we can to keep the cost of the event as low as possible. For example, the breweries that come to Monsters have graciously donated their beer to Live It BIG so that we can mount a first-rate beer festival, while allowing the vast majority of the money from ticket sales to go towards our charitable mission. The support of participating breweries and sponsors allow us to hold this festival and help out Houstonians in need.

What Can I Expect?

As an attendee of Monsters, you will be able to taste beers from all of the breweries represented. Your purchase of a ticket will get you a wristband, a sampling cup and a tasting card.

Each brewery/brewpub is bringing at least 2 labels along, so you'll have an abundance of beers to taste.

We've got some fantastic bands coming this year, but the lineup for 2011 is still TBA. Last year's stage lineup included Mason Lankford and the Folk Family Revival, Young Girls, Castle Lights, and Chase Hamblin.

We will again have food trucks in attendance- this year we'll have a bunch more.

You CAN bring the following into the Monsters Of Beer Charity Festival:

* lawn chairs
* blankets
* beach umbrellas

You CANNOT bring:

* Ice chests/coolers
* Pop-up tents
* Pets/Children
* Alcohol of any variety
* Weapons (even with CHL)

Silent Auction?

Yes. Last year we had a silent auction of rare beers and other beer-related goodies, and we are expanding it this year. All proceeds from this auction will go toward the charities we support.
