Watch out, the Kilted are Coming!
We’re Invading Brenham, Texas on
Labor Day Weekend: September 3-5, 2021
Brenham is the place to be
kilted over Labor Day!
How does great BBQ sound to you?
Do you love small towns with quaint antique shops and boutique stores?
Would you want to enjoy a whisky tasting or some free-flowing beer?
Maybe you are a Blue Bell Ice Cream lover?
Even better, how would you like to show off your kilt with many other kilties?
If so, then this is for you!
EXCITING WEEKEND EVENTS!
- Check in the Hampton Inn & pick up your kilted meetup packet.
- “First Friday Farmer and Artisan Market in Downtown Brenham” is taking place, so trek downtown and check out all the great vendors.
- In the evening, we are meeting at Highlander Tobacco Company for amazing Texas BBQ by a world-class BBQ company. Come try some great cigars, taste some great whisky, and have some kilted fun!
- We are asking folks to bring ANY sort of whisky so we can share in many great varieties. This does not have to be a Scotch whisky; it can be any whisky from anywhere in the world.
- Don’t forget your lanyard & meal ticket.
- Why not venture out to one of Brenham’s breakfast establishments or Hampton guests can enjoy breakfast in the lobby.
- If you have not done so, check in and pick up your kilted meetup packet in the Hampton lobby.
- Come on and invade downtown! A lot of the shops are giving us special discounts and Included with your ticket is a meal ticket and drink token from Pioneer Smokehouse. If BBQ isn’t your thing, next door is Home Sweet Farm Market & Bier Garden with a great food truck. Both establishments share a huge area where everyone can sit, talk, eat good food and have some great beer, wine, spritzer, and soda.
- Check out a fun whisky tasting at 1844 Liquors. This is a boutique liquor store about 100 yards from Pioneer and Home Sweet and they are stocking up on a lot of “mini” bottles. Brenham is an “open container” city so enjoy some great samples as you walk around town.
- Downtown will be the place to be and we’ll include maps, downtown tour information and businesses in your welcome packet.
- After a warm day, how about some late-afternoon ice cream? Check out the Blue Bell Creamery with $1 bowls of your favorite ice cream flavor!
SATURDAY EVENING – JOIN US For The RMWK Royal Court
For an exciting Saturday evening, come to the RMWK Court! This is going to be a fun event of recognition from The King and Queen, with whisky tastings and shenanigans.
- Doors open at 6:00PM and it will begin around 7:00PM and run till around 10:00PM.
- To Get In and join the fun – We are asking folks to bring ANY sort of whisky(750 ml bottle+) to the RMWK Royal Court, so we can share in many great varieties. This does not have to be a Scotch whisky; it can be any whisky from anywhere in the world.

- Come enjoy this dress-up affair so wear some of your best. We are talking to a photographer to take portrait pictures in your very best.
- Get up and grab some breakfast with another kiltie.
- If you wish to attend church, you will find some church information in your packet. We envision this to be kind of a laid-back day.
- You may want to hang out at the Brazos Valley Brewery. They have a great line up of craft beers and will be conducting tours of the brewery and how beer is made. There is a stage with music and great covered seating outside. In Brenham, it seems there’s always a nice breeze blowing to keep you cool. Several of the locally well-known food trucks will be out in the lot serving up some great eats.
