Dallas, Tx – One of the best cities in the country for beer, wine and spirits. If you are in the area, it is only fitting that you visit the greatest outdoor beer festival in the south next year.
Be sure to mark your calendars for fall 2018!! Here are the five reasons to check out Dallas Observer BrewFest:
1. THE BEER
Each General Admission grants you permission to bathe in beer – over 500 beers – at the Dallas Farmers Market. Your ticket comes with twelve 2-ounce samples. If you are a beer enthusiast on a mission to taste all 500 beers, you can purchase additional sampling cards. The beer festival only lasts for one night. You can, however, upgrade your ticket to VIP status to get in one hour early. This will allow you and all your tipsy friends to enjoy the tasting at a leisurely pace.
Here’s a short list of breweries who participated this year:
512 Brewing Co Abita Brewing Co Ace Cider American Vintage Beverage Angry Orchard Hard Cider Big Bend Brewing Co Breckenridge Brewery Cedar Creek Brewery Chimay Brewery Cobra Brewing Coedo Brewery Einstok Beer Estrella Damm Firestone Walker Brewing Co Founders Brewing Co. Goose Island Henry’s Hard Soda Hofbrau Humperdinks Leinenkugel's MOA Brewing Co No Label Brewing Co Noble Rey Brewing Co Peticolas Brewing Co Pyramid Breweries Rabbit Hole Brewing Rahr & Sons Brewing Co Real Ale Brewing Co. Spaten Squatters Craft Beers St. Killian Importing Stella Cidre Stiegl Stone Brewing Co Texas Ale Project The Bruery Total Beverage Solution Truly Spiked and Sparkling Tupps Brewery Upslope Brewing Co. Val Dieu Wild Acre Brewing Co Woodchuck Cider Ziegenbock
(Woah that’s a lot of beer!)
2. THE FOOD
You can’t have beer without food!
What is awesome about BrewFest is that it’s not all about the beer. Several restaurants across the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex can showcase their most popular dishes too.
Grub Burger Bar, Olivella’s Neo Pizza, Tacos La Banqueta, Tha Smokin’ Chef, and Chiloso Mexican Bistro were some of the eateries present this year.
Need a beer break? BrewFest has you covered.
Head to the dance floor and move your feet to beat! This is where the party starts! Nothing makes the party better than when the DJ starts mixing and spinning the latest hits.
4. MEETING NEW PEOPLE
Never fear of being an outsider at this event!! Every festival-goer is friendly and welcoming. People are willing to share their ideas and recommendations on which booths to visit as well as their favorite brand. You will make friends for sure and come away with a lot more beer knowledge!
Dallas is such an amazing city. This beer fest takes advantage of its location by holding the event outdoors at the Dallas Farmers Market (DFM). The DFM is nestled among the skyscrapers in the Dallas skyline and is the heart of downtown.
Add lively beer enthusiasts, music and…bam! You have the perfect setting for an amazing beer festival. In the past, BrewFest was held at a differing location. Let’s cross our fingers and pray that it stays at DFM!
