Want to check out what has documentary filmmakers abuzz about craft beer in Texas? Slackerwood has a pair of tickets to the Texas Craft Brewers Festival on Saturday, October 6, at Fiesta Gardens. These tickets are for two general admission packages worth a total of $50 at the door, and include festival wristband for admission from 2 - 6 pm, six 4 oz sampling tokens, and a commemorative plastic tasting glass.

Twenty-eight Texas breweries will feature over 115 craft beers, many not available in Austin and exclusive to the festival. In addition to craft beer, live music, and great local food, the festival features the Eastside Beer Sessions. The Texas Craft Beer Explosion panel will feature several Texas brewery representatives, but most notably Christine Celis of Celis Brewery (pictured above). Celis is one of several local brewery representatives featured in the upcoming documentary Brewed in Austin: The Zymurgence of Craft Beer in Central Texas. She made the news after reclaiming her father Pierre Celis' intellectual property to all Celis recipes and labels, and hopes to begin brewing the historical Celis beers soon.

Brewed in Austin filmmaker Chris Erlon will be on hand for video coverage of this historical panel discussion. Other speakers joining Celis include Kevin Brand of (512) Brewing, Michael Graham of Austin Beerworks, Brian Royo of No Label Brewing, and more brewers from around the state. Tickets to Eastside beer sessions are still available -- you must have a paid (or comp) admission into the festival to purchase a session ticket.

Here's how to win: post a comment either here, or on our Facebook page about your favorite beer-related movie. Random drawing will take place at midnight tonight, with the winner to be notified by  9 am Saturday.

My favorite beer-related

My favorite beer-related movie is Beer Wars. Makes me hate the big beer companies and stick to drinking craft beer only.

Winner, winner, chicken dinner!
