Alcohol & Altruism
The Wild West Brew fest is one of Katy’s largest philanthropic events. Rated the “#1 Beer Event in North America,” by BeerYeti.com and hosted by the Rotary Club of Katy, all the funds from Wild West Brew Fest go directly to local charities. Festival founder and Katy, TX Rotary club member David Loesch was inspired by a trip to Colorado, where he attended a festival in Breckenridge. David brought this idea back to Texas and more than a decade later the Wild West Brew Fest is considered as one of the best Porter parties that the country has to offer. A mecca for craft brew lovers and those that just love a cold one, this Pilsner paradise draws thousands from all over the great state of Texas and beyond.
Not only does the Wild West Brew Fest boast a mind-boggling number of suds to sip, but it is also staffed 100% by volunteers, meaning 100% of the money you spend here goes directly back into the community of Katy and surrounding areas. There’s been more than a few beers enjoyed since its inception and now, but this foamy festival has left a lasting legacy right here in the Houston area and raised almost $1 million dollars, with all proceeds benefitting charitable organizations and student scholarships.
