There are designated drivers at an event going on right now. That’s where many are getting a taste of maybe some of the best beer on the border. It’s the first ever Border Beer Fest taking place at Life Downs this evening. Organizers were busy since the early morning hours setting up the booths and of course the beer. Over 100 different beers from around the world are there for participants to sample. Organizers are hopeful this will become a tradition. "I'm having a fantastic time. The best I ever had ever! I'm kind of surprised that this is the first time it's ever been here. There's a lot of beer drinkers in Laredo and they've got to have this more often. Every year would be nice,” say some beer enthusiasts.
