Big Texas Beer Fest Part 2

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).


About dfwbeerscene

I am a beer nut. I drink it all the time, I brew it as much as humanly possible, and if I'm not doing either of the first two, I'm probably thinking about it. So as a beer nut, I've always followed the limited beer scene in DFW, and up until recently, there wasn't a whole lot to discuss. Well now there sure is! As many of you already know, DFW and its surrounding areas is having a bit of a beer renaissance. Every month last year I'd hear about more and more breweries "in development" and I'd scurry the web to find out where I can monitor their progress. And that, is what I intend to do with this blog. So now a little bit about myself: I am an environmental scientist by trade, but as of January 2011 I have made the decision to become a professional brewer. Since then, I applied and was accepted to the American Brewers' Guild CraftBrewers Apprenticeship Program and am scheduled to begin in June 2013.
