The Texas Craft Brewers Festival is routinely one of the best ways to get a sense, a taste, of the state's thriving beer industry. This year, nearly 80 breweries will offer almost 200 beers at Fiesta Gardens on Sept. 28 (and that's not even counting the 27 more that are part of the rotating tap list, the rarer stuff that release at certain times throughout the day).

That's a whole lot of beer, more than you'll ever be able to drink in one day. But today, we're revealing the main beer list, and with it in hand, you can start deciding which booths you want to focus on and which might be worth skipping. Haven't bought tickets yet? Those are still available on the Texas Craft Brewers Festival website — general admission, granting entry to the fest at 2 p.m., are $40.

It's a lot to parse, but there are immediate highlights for Austinites who are looking to try brews they can't get here. Those include Houston's B-52 Brewing's new hazy double IPA, A Couple of Juice Bags, made in collaboration with SpindleTap Brewery. Ingenious is another Houston-area brewery known for its hazy IPAs like the C800 and for decadent stouts like the Coconut Caramel Delight, both on the beer list.

Additional options to seek out? Weathered Souls from San Antonio brings an imperial golden stout; farther south, from Corpus Christi, Lorelei Brewing will have a Galaxy SMaSh IPA (a single hop, single malt beer, that is). The festival also offers a first taste of an Austin brewery that isn't quite open yet — Hopsquad Brewing, near Circle, will have a pale ale and saison at its booth.
