The Temple Chamber of Commerce is excited to present the 2022 Spirit of Santa Fe Trail, a self-guided craft beer and wine trail. The trail is an opportunity to celebrate the 11 participating craft breweries and wineries in Central Texas.
“Central Texas has a budding winery and brewery industry that offers something for everyone,” noted Rod Henry, Temple Chamber of Commerce President. “Our region produces traditional grape-based wine, mead wine, and fruit-based wines, craft beer, and more.”
This year’s trail participants spanning throughout the greater Temple area offer a variety of beverages for craft connoisseurs and casual tasters.
In fact, these Texas Craft Beverages are more than what is in the glass. According to the Texas Wine & Grape Grower’s Association, the economic impact of the wine and winegrape industry on the sate of Texas is more than $13.1 billion. And according to the Texas Comptroller’s office, craft breweries contributed $700 million to the gross state product in Texas in 2020. The economic impact of the industries provide agriculture preservation, jobs, generates taxes, and attracts tourism.
The Spirit of Santa Fe Trail is April 1-3, 2022. Trail tickets are $25 and are valid for one exclusive offer at each participating location over the trail dates. Purchase tickets online at centraltexastickets.com. Pick-up punch card for the trail from participating wineries, breweries, or the Chamber with proof of ticket purchase.
