The 2021 Wild West Brewfest (WWB) was an amazing, record-breaking event, and we hope you had as much fun as we did! Brewers, patrons and vendors were able to get out and have a great time for a worthy cause. The attendance was strong – patrons from all over Texas, along with 13 other states, came to Katy for the event. The event featured record brewer attendance, record beer consumption, great feedback from the wine and silent auction tents, along with terrific praise for all of the activation party zones throughout the event.
The Rotary Club of Katy made the firm decision to have the 2021 WWBF after the previous year’s event was cancelled due to the COVID pandemic. Twenty-twenty was a difficult year because giving back to those in need is what WWBF was founded upon, and not being able to donate to the charities the organization supports was a tough blow to many, especially to the organizers of the event. While COVID continues to plague our country, WWBF did its best through the uncertainty in today’s world.
Because of those efforts, the 2021 event was a great success. The Rotary Club of Katy will be able to donate $135,000 to worthy charitable organizations in and around the Katy and Houston areas. WWBF is extremely excited to be “back in business,” and they could not do this without their sponsors, patrons, brewers and vendors.
Updates on the deployment of these funds will be released in the coming weeks. As it is widely known, no one takes any fee to run this event. The Rotarians give away everything they make so that they can positively impact as many as possible. Rotarians are passionate about what they do and the “why” they do it, and know that they are always grateful for the support they receive. Stay tuned for further updates from the 2021 event and details of the 2022 festival!
