New Braunfels is beefing up its event offerings with Braunfest, which celebrates German beer and fitness culture on February 28 at Sophienburg Museum & Archives (401 W. Coll St, New Braunfels). Along with Soph-Fit challenges (including a beer stein-holding contest), Braunfest will include live music and beer, as the event honors the original New Braunfels Brewing Company opened by Julius Rennert in the 1800s. 

Sample brews via New Braunfels Brewing Co. Austin Eastciders, BS Brewing, Deep Ellum Brewing Company, Faust Brewing, Franconia, Goliad Brewing, Guadalupe Brewing Company, Karbach Brewing Co., Middleton Brewing, Pedernales Brewing Company, Rahr & Sons Brewing, Saint Arnold, Shiner, Solid Rock Brewing and Twisted X Brewing Company along with SA's Busted Sandal Brewing Co. 

Tickets range from $10 (for non-drinkers) to $65 (for Soph-Fit competitors and imbibers) and are available here. Visit for more details.
