We love beer and sausage, you love beer and sausage — it sounds like an Ale Tryst in the making! Put on your lederhosen and hook up with the Current at the Hemisfair Arch Plaza for our third-annual Ale Fest, San Antonio’s citywide orgy of high-end brews and meat on a stick. Our version of Oktoberfest means 75 premium brews that you likely won’t find on tap anywhere in town. Cigar Club is the sponsor of this year’s live music stage, which will feature Chris Taylor, Tim Phillips, Jackson Parten, and David Gregory throughout the course of the afternoon. Food will be available for purchase, while free Vitamin Water and regular H20 will keep you hydrated. Entry fee includes 15 beer tickets — designate a driver or bring cab fare! $20 presale at all H.E.B. locations, $30/gate (cash only), 1-6pm, HemisFair Arch Plaza, South Alamo & Nueva,
