    Hey y'all,
    My name is Kate and I hail from the 903 area of Texas. I have been enjoying various craft brews for years, stouts being my fave. My small town is very new to craft beer, so I have been recruited to chair the brew committee of our biggest entertainment event. I don't claim to know everything, and am still learning types of brew, pairings, the lingo, etc. I do enjoy trying beer and love to learn so any help is appreciated. I look forward to learning from this forum. Thanks for the add.

  8. I think thejukes is near your neck of the woods.

    He would be more popular here if I didn't like his comments as much.

    That’s 4 hours from me. I guess they don’t do much geography in lawyering school.

    Compton25 is in Texarkana, but he only drinks old infected beer from Europe.

    OP, you’re in a bit of a wasteland. You should take a trip to Great Raft in Shreveport, LA. They make some really tasty beers.

    Welcome to TalkBeer! If you need any help with your event, a couple of my friends and me put on the Great Arkansas Beer Festival every year. Happy to share any info or tidbits we’ve learned.

    She's not terribly far from us in Dallas/Fort Worth. There are breweries opening in the east/north/northeast from Dallas going her direction.

    A bit closer to Shreveport, as far as I could tell. Five to six hours round trip either way. That’s what I used to do from Laredo to San Antonio for beer trips. It gets really old really quick.

    Dallas would be worth a trip, for sure, though.

    Ok... so I need some help on event stuff. What are some ways I can raise funds for a non-profit and make the brewers I invite happy?
