Boots n Brews Craft Beer & Culinary Weekend at Tanque Verde Ranch

You're darn tootin' this ain't a weekend you'll want to miss. 

‘You can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make it drink’ …unless there’s a cold glass of beer involved — surely that will do the trick?

Tanque Verde Ranch is hosting their third annual Boots n Brews Craft Beer and Culinary Weekend from Friday, February 1 – Sunday, February 3.

Experience local and try it all

Boots n Brews started as an effort to spread the word about craft beers in the area, feature culinary pairings, and show off the extraordinary views at the ranch. Each day will be filled with different activities and separate opportunities to try what the local breweries and cuisine have to offer.

A variety of activities and beer tastings to keep you busy

This is a huge weekend of events including beer tastings, horseback riding, a cowboy cookout dinner, Wyatt Earp Texas Hold’em, live music, and more. You’ve got a couple options, too, depending on what kind of experience you’d like to have at the ranch.
