Great Brews for a Great Cause: Wild West Brew Fest in Katy Returns March 21

February 09 2024

Get ready for the ultimate party with a purpose: the 2024 Wild West Brewfest (WWBF) is set to be the biggest and best yet, and tickets are on sale right now! With over 100 brewers and 10+ wineries ready to pour their best libations, a wide assortment of culinary delights to explore, and an impressive lineup of live music, this is an event not to be missed.

The Brewfest, which will take place from March 21st to 23rd at the spacious Typhoon Texas in Katy, is more than just a celebration of craft brewing; it’s an event with heart. Last year, the Rotary Club of Katy raised a record-breaking $175,000 for deserving causes, thanks to the support of their partners and patrons. In fact, since its inception 13 years ago by Katy Rotarians, the WWBF has raised and donated over $1.25 million to various charitable organizations.

Donations from the 2023 WWBF have made waves throughout the community, funding a wide range of causes from the Christ Clinic for Dispensary of Hope, Katy ISD FFA, Katy Heritage Society, and many more. The event has event has even garnered national acclaim; WWBF has been awarded the No. 1 Beer Festival in North America by for multiple years in a row.

Last year, among the dozens of brewers who shared their craft brew with revelers were Katy-area favorites like Baa Baa Brewhouse, No Label Brewing Company, and Fulbrook Ale Works. A full line-up of local food trucks and restaurants brought their A-game with delicious cuisine, and WWBF is currently accepting applications for the best of the best to share their culinary chops with this year's attendees.

David Loesch, creator and chairman of Wild West Brew Fest, has been on mission to bring the community together for the common good on a large scale since the inception of the event over a decade ago. "We're not just passionate about good brews - we're passionate about doing good," said Loesch.

The 2024 WWBF also promises an upgraded Hop House - an exclusive VIP experience with its own dedicated space complete with bands, DJs, and exceptional beer. "We've moved the event from the old location inside the park to its own structure outside the park. You won't want to miss this," added Loesch.

The Brewfest is not just about enjoying great beers; WWBF is volunteer-created and run, with all net proceeds given back to the local community. The goal for the next three years is ambitious – to hit the $2 million mark in donations. But with a community as supportive as Katy, anything is possible. Be part of this growing movement to do good right here in Katy and get your tickets now at, with volunteer signups at  

“We Rotarians are passionate about the 'why' we do this and are grateful for all the support we receive. After all, we're not just throwing a party, we're making a difference," said Loesch.
