EL PASO (KTSM) — Many beer lovers were in downtown El Paso for the first Sun City Craft Beer Festival.
People enjoyed beer from dozens of national craft breweries. There was also live music, restaurant food pairings and even a home-brew competition.
Some said an event like this will bring a lot of attention to the Sun City.
"More breweries will pay attention to El Paso as a new craft market. They'll say, 'Wow this is successful event happened in El Paso. Let's go see what's going on. Let's see what our beers can do in El Paso,’" said Adrian Perez with L & F Distributors.
Perez said they'll learn from the first festival and make it even bigger and better next year.
