Austin Beer Guide’s Lager Jam is returning for a third year at Billy’s on Burnet Saturday to celebrate the wonders of the bottom-fermenting brew, offering 25 beers from local breweries.

The $30 tickets, which you should buy ahead of time online, include a Lager Jam glass and koozie, on-site screen-printed T-shirt and three pours of beer. Or, if you’d prefer to pay a la carte, the event will have a limited number of glasses for $5 and shirts for $15, in addition to the beer you’ll pay for as you go.

The local publication, which releases a free twice-a-year guide to Austin’s burgeoning beer scene, started the Austin Lager Jam two years ago as a way of showcasing the talent and creativity of the area’s breweries. This year, Austin Beer Guide has also teamed up with three of these breweries — Austin Beerworks, Hops & Grain and Oasis, Texas Brewing — to bring special collaboration beers to the event.

Here’s the full list of beers you can expect to enjoy at Lager Jam 3, which runs from 1 to 5 p.m. Saturday at Billy’s on Burnet at 2105 Hancock Dr.
