Brewery Tour

Join fellow summit attendees aboard Austin’s only concert on wheels! The Twisted Texas Tour bus features a local band riding on board, providing the jams for a good time as we visit THREE local breweries. At each of the breweries, they will serve up local craft brews. You’ll get to try seasonal releases and small batch brews not found anywhere else. Your tour guide will also give a little information about the local craft beer scene and the brews on tap.

Monday 1 p.m.

Kayak on Town Lake

Experience the scenic and beautiful Austin from the unique perspective of your kayak on this 2-hour tour.  Paddle along and discover some of Austin's great landmarks, including Barton Springs, the Congress Avenue Bridge (famous for its 2 million bats), the Stevie Ray Vaughan statue, and the Austin boardwalk. The tour is a mix of history, new landmarks in the expanding Austin skyline and we also include a little information about the wildlife in the area.

Tuesday 1 p.m.

Cruise on Lake Austin

Enjoy the beauty of Lake Austin and its surroundings on this fun and scenic cruise. Located just minutes from downtown, what it lacks in size, it makes up for in proximity and charm.  You’ll see tons of multi-million dollar homes, the famous 360/Pennybacker bridge and Austin Country Club, site of the annual Dell Match Play golf tournament each spring.  Refreshments and great networking abound with your fellow Summiters.  A memorable excursion, for sure!

Tuesday 1 p.m.

Axe Throwing at Urban Axes

Join fellow summit attendees at Urban Axes for a fun afternoon. The sport of axe throwing was invented about 5 minutes after the first axe was created, however it was traditionally undertaken in the outdoors, far away from urban environments. Our aim is to take axe throwing out of the woods and into the bright lights of the big city, by presenting you with ... Urban Axe Throwing!
