Those that enjoy sampling a variety of Texas wines and local beers have an opportunity to join friends, primary candidates and community members at the 30th Annual League of Women Voters Taste of Texas Wine and Beer on Thursday, Jan. 25 at the Quail Creek Country Club from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.

To commemorate the 30th anniversary of the event, the league is featuring a variety of Texas wines and beers. Back by popular demand is the sparkling wine from McPherson Cellars in Lubbock. Other offerings include Duchman Winery’s Trebbiano from Driftwood, Fall Creek Vineyard’s Chardonnay from Driftwood, an impressive meritage blend from Llano Estacado in West Texas and Becker Vineyard’s Merlot from Stonewall.

Because local craft beers have become as popular as the Texas wines, an additional offering has been added. From established breweries from around the local area will be Live Oak’s HefeWeizen from Austin, Slow Ride Pale Ale from Oasis Texas Brewing Company in Austin, Austin Amber from Independence Brewing Company and Coffee Porter from Real Ale Brewery in Blanco.

In addition to the wine and beer tastings, there will be a silent auction featuring themed baskets as well as gift certificates for local goods and services.

Funds raised from this single, annual event support League of Women Voters of Hays County projects. The league is well known and appreciated for their nonpartisan support of candidates and voters through countywide debates, forums, voters guides that appear in the San Marcos Daily Record, in addition to Vote 411, an online information source for voter information

Tickets for the event are $20 and can be purchased from league members, at the door on the night of the event, or online by visiting the website.
