Boot Brew Fest – 2024

Boot Brew Fest will take place at Lakeview Park & Beach in Eunice, LA.

This is a HOMEBREW FESTIVAL.  The festival will provide education on the homebrewing process, as well as provide samples of home brewed beer from the brewers themselves. The Dead Yeast Society will be participating.

The event will include an awards ceremony on Friday April 5th at 7:00 pm for homebrews entered in the Boot Brew Fest Homebrew Competition, which is a BJCP sanctioned event. (judging done in advance)

Different homebrew clubs from around the state, including Dead Yeast, will provide homebrew to be served to attendees.  There will a “People’s Choice” award voted on by those sampling the brews as well as a “Best Club/Tent” and an “Iron Brewer” award to whomever brings the most kegs.

More food and bands will be at “The Barn” just behind the festival after the Saturday awards ceremony.

Lodging is available, See the official festival page for more info.

Submitting a 5 gallon batch will get you free entry to the festival!  This is a $40 value, and includes a free sampling cup and a food voucher.

If you plan to bring beer then you need to fill out the Festival Beer Entry Form. (you must be logged in to view and submit the form) This will give us the info on the brew so we can make signs and we will also use that info to register your beer with the festival. (you can register it separately if you like, but we need the info too to print your beer signs) Please fill out the form by Wednesday March 20th so we have time to print signs. (you can still enter your beer later, but we may not get a sign printed on time, and it won’t be featured in the Festival Menu)

If there are enough of us attending, we will likely use the Club Coffin and possibly the Ice Well, otherwise, plan on bringing an ice chest, trash can, or other container to hold your beer (they will provide ice) and a means to tap it. We have CO2 and Nitro (beer gas) and can serve up to 8 brews.

Finally, if someone is interested in attending even just to drink and be festive, and you have a truck or trailer and can help us haul the Coffin and/or Ice Well, that would be much appreciated! Contact, Jim or Mark via the Contact Us link, above in the menu, ASAP to let them know you can help out.

The event is finished.
