The Odessa Brewfest returns for the fourth year on September 9, 2017. Brewfest fans know what that means: the very best craft beer, wine & spirits, along with fresh food, artisan vendors and live music in a beautiful setting.

But you don't have to wait until September to get into the Brewfest spirit. The famous Odessa Brewbracket contest is back, pitting brewers head to head, tournament style!

Regional Breweries Battle in Annual Contest for Fun & Prizes
