Tap into the island during beer festival in Galveston

That you can find good craft beer on The Strand is no longer a surprise. Friend of Beer, TX Justin Strait made sure of that when he opened Brews Brothers several years ago on the Galveston tourist district's main drag. The subsequent launch of Galveston Island Brewing Co. and its popular Tiki Wheat has locals and visitors alike requesting locally made beer. But Mike Dean, an island native, a longtime bar and restaurant owner and a big promoter of his hometown, has done his share to promote Galveston's craft-beer scene as well. On Saturday, for example, his Yaga's franchise is hosting its ninth annual beer tasting event. It coincides with the festive Chili Quest cook-off.
