Alrighty folks. If you don’t have plans this Saturday, you do now.
The Big Texas Beer Fest is being held down at the Fair Park Automobile Building. Deep Ellum (DEBC), Franconia, Rahr, and Peticolas will be pouring. Lakewood Brewing Company will be there, but cannot pour. This is a great time to get out and try the offerings of the local breweries if you haven’t already. Oh yeah, there’s about 100 other breweries from all over the world as well. Tickets are $35 for general admission, $60 for VIP, and $20 for a Designated Driver (you’ll need one). The VIP ticket gets you a few perks like early entry (1 hour), an after-party at DEBC (just take the Dart Green Line to the Baylor stop and it’s a few blocks), plus first crack at DEBC’s cask IPA! The early entry gets you first shot at every beer in the joint actually.
So get on down there. Even if it’s raining, all of this will be indoors and DEBC has plenty of room in the brewery (as oppose to out in the beer garden).
