Fallout from this past weekend’s utter disaster of an event; Austin Beer Fest [http://www.scrumptiouschef.com/food/2012/4/3/Dear-Austin-Beer-Fest-Organizers-Your-Facebook-Apology-Doesnt-Cut-It-Now-Were-Getting-A-Rope] commences now.

The Central Texas Beer Festival that was to be held at Austin Music Hall on April 21st has been called off. From the I Love Beer Blog [ http://i-love-beer.blogspot.com/]

“I have taken the decision to cancel the festival that was scheduled for April 21st. This decision was prompted by 2 factors:

· A number of sponsors who had agreed to support the event did not provide funding in time for me to produce what I felt would have been a quality event. I would rather cancel than produce something substandard.

The disastrous Austin Beer Festival that was held last Sat at the Travis County Expo Grounds. The complete fiasco – well documented online – has contaminated the market for beer festivals – especially ones run by private companies.

I want to thank you for your interest in the event and will let you know if I decide to re-schedule.”
