The International Museum of Art & Science presents its annual fundraiser, the 12th annual Night at the Brew-seum April 4. Brew-seum showcases specialty and craft beers from across Texas. It also brings together more than 25 restaurants and food trucks from the RGV who donate their time, talents and fare.
The event takes place at the museum from 7-11 p.m. with VIP guests early access at 6 p.m.
Brew-seum will also show the Final Four championship basketball games on larger-than-life screens. Live music is also part of the evening from the Renaissance Rockers. Brew-seum also features more than 90 craft beers, as well as wine and cider.
Brew-seum is a party with a purpose. All funds support the art and science education exhibits and programs at the museum, reaching more than 30,000 children from low-income school districts annually. The IMAS provides a unique informal learning environment for these children from schools around the Rio Grande Valley.
Tickets are $100 for VIP, $75 general admission and $60 for IMAS members
Brew-seum Beer Dinner, March 9
In addition, the IMAS will host a special Brew-seum Beer Dinner at Salomé on Main on March 9, from 7-9 p.m.
With a limited number of tickets available, this intimate dinner includes a five-course meal by Chef Larry Delgado. Each course will be inspired by beer from Jester King, St. Elmo, The Brewer’s Table, 5 Stones Brewing, High Wheel and Kűnstler Brewing.
Tickets to the Beer Dinner are $150 each
Empty Barrels auction
Also featured at the Beer Dinner and Brew-seum and available for auction that evening, will be six bar tables made using donated wine and whiskey barrels. These barrels can be found throughout the community, currently, as collection vessels for non-perishable foods and monetary donations for the Food Bank of the RGV. In its first year, the Empty Barrels Food & Fund Drive has already exceeded expectations as a collaborative project. It aims to raise awareness and funds to fight hunger in the Rio Grande Valley.
