Super pumped today to be able to announce more details of RealTail II. We’ll be brewing the Collaboration Beer this Saturday morning at Freetail. Our normal tour is being pushed back to 1pm this Saturday – might be a good one to head out to. Both Jason and John Lee will be here along with Erik Ogershok from Real Ale and whoever else he brings along.
Last year was a blast and this year should be no exception!
If you can’t make it to the festival but will be headed to GABF this year, we’ll have the Collaboration Beer available at the Texas Craft Brewers Guild booth.

“untraditional double wit using locally sourced nopalitos (cactus pads), a
mélange of four spices and agave nectar”.
The tap-list for the daylong event will be released a week
prior and posted to Freetail’s webpage and Facebook. Some of the rare beers
fans can expect are Freetail’s Bandito, La Muerta 2010, Atê and selections from
Real Ale’s Mysterium Verum series.
Freetail Founder and CEO Scott Metzger said that a few more
surprises will be in store for visitors that day. “We’ve been stockpiling a thing or two, and
it’s never beyond us to have twenty of our beers on tap. I’m not saying that is what we are going to
do, but I’m not saying that’s not
what we’re going to do.”
