What about coronavirus?
HCCBF leadership is continually monitoring local, state, and national sources of information and recommendations regarding COVID-19. At this time, the Rotary Club of New Braunfels has not cancelled the 2020 Hill Country Craft Beer Festival due to the length of time until it takes place and in hopes the COVID-19 crisis subsides prior to the festival date.

Rest assured that the HCCBF has no profit motive considering it was created by the Rotary Club of New Braunfels solely as a fundraiser to support New Braunfels non-profit organizations.

Organizers are meeting regularly to evaluate the situation and will make a prudent decision that takes into account a commitment to the safety of organizers, volunteers, vendors, breweries, and attendees. Should the festival be cancelled or postponed, all ticket purchasers will have the option to either request a refund for the ticket(s) purchased, OR choose to donate the proceeds from their ticket(s) to the festival beneficiary, Steve’s Pantry, a 501(c)3 organization that provides basic needs to the homeless in our area.
