Beer Fest U.S.A
@White Oak Music Hall
Saturday 7/28/2018 1:00 PM
Beer is one of the oldest and most widely consumed alcoholic drinks in the world, and the third most popular drink overall after water and tea. Beer is brewed from cereal grains—most commonly, malted barley, wheat, corn, and rice are used. During the brewing process, fermentation of the starch sugars in the wort produces ethanol and carbonation in the resulting beer.
Most modern beer is brewed with hops, which add bitterness and other flavours and act as a natural preservative and stabilizing agent. In commercial brewing, the natural carbonation effect is often removed during processing and replaced with forced carbonation.

Turnpike Troubadour, this Oklahoma founded group started performing in 2005 and their self-titled 2015 album peaked at number 17 on the Billboard 200.
Evan Felker, the band’s singer and one of its primary songwriters a few years ago told the blog Tulsa World.com, "The music is so appealing, regardless of where you’re from or your past, because the songs describe shared human experiences, Felker said. They may be told through an eastern Oklahoma lens that we find familiar, but the stories are shared among people everywhere."
The Red Dirt band will perform this weekend on the lawn of White Oak Music Hall.

Dr. Berger and UH Theatre professor Cecil Pickett went on to direct a pair of plays each summer, performing free to the public at Hermann Park’s Miller Outdoor Theatre in this unique collaboration between a city and a university.
