Home brewers and local breweries come together for a major fundraiser for the Acadiana Center for the Arts that also doubles as the region’s premier beer festival when the sixth annual Gulf Brew Festival & Fundraiser gets under way July 21 in Lafayette.
Set for Parc International from 6-9 pm. in the comfort of air conditioned tents, Gulf Brew features more than 100 fine craft and specialty brews, on-site brewing demonstrations, gaming area, live music and food.
Kate Waxley, marketing director for the AcA, says attendance "helps to support AcA’s expansive programming efforts including theater, dance, music, opera, and cinema presentations, along with outstanding visual arts, community and education initiatives."
Waxley says that La 31 "was a home brew club when they came on board with us the first year and their business took off from there."
