Social Committee: Please join the Pavilion Partners for a truly unique experience at B52 Brewery Co. on Saturday, April 2nd from 12-5pm in Conroe.
The social committee will be there a bit early to secure a spot, so look for a Pavilion T-shirt or a friendly face when you arrive. The brewery does have a few picnic tables, but we recommend bringing a lawn chair just to make sure you can carve out your own spot of heaven.
