Craft Beer Festival still needs volunteers


The inaugural Gonzales Inquirer Craft Beer festival on April 27 and 28 is rapidly approaching, but volunteers are still needed to help work the Craft Beer tent on Saturday, April 28.

According to festival organizers, approximately 25-30 volunteers are needed to help out on one of two shifts between the hours of 11 a.m. and 7 p.m. in the Craft Beer tent on Confederate Square.

Volunteers will be pouring samples of Craft Beer from such well known brewers like Shiner, Bells Brewery, Goliad, Laguinitas, Seguin Brewing Company, Blue Moon, Revolver and others.

There will be a one-hour training session the week of the event, and volunteers will get a free T-shirt for volunteering.

“We certainly hope more people will come forward and help us on this worthy cause,” festival coordinator Terence Fitzwater said. “All the net profits of the event are going towards starting a scholarship fund called Project 2030 which will help with educational expenses for graduates of Gonzales County high schools. So please help!”

Volunteers will have their choice of working one of two four-hour shifts on Saturday. The job entails collecting tickets from attendees and then providing samples or full pours depending on the individual person. No money will be exchanged between the volunteers and the patrons.

Interested people are encouraged to call Mr. Fitzwater at 830-672-2861 Monday through Friday between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., or email him at
