Arriving this weekend in Dallas is one of those events local beer lovers drool over and mark on their calendars: the Dallas Observer BrewFest! On Saturday evening, more than 400 brews will be on offer to sample from 120 breweries, amid thousands of expected attendees … oh, and of course there’ll be food! And music!
All this sipping satisfaction will happen at the Dallas Farmers Market starting at 6 p.m. for VIP attendees and 7 p.m. for general admission ticket holders. In addition to early entry, VIPs get access to an exclusive VIP area with private bathrooms, liquor samples and free catered food from Full Circle Tavern, Pollo Campero and more. All attendees can enjoy 12 2-ounce beer samples (you can buy another punch card for more samples after that) and food for purchase from the likes of Grub Burger Bar, Tacos La Banqueta, Tha Smokin Chef and Olivella’s, all of which sound perfect as accompaniments to amazing craft beers!
If all that goodness isn’t tempting enough, cap off your evening with the official BrewFest after-party at The Ginger Man Dallas (2718 Boll St., Dallas) from 10 p.m. to midnight! Wanting to make BrewFest a multi-day celebration? Hit up the pre-party at Lekka Henderson (1921 N. Henderson Ave., Dallas) tonight at 6 p.m.!
BrewFest is a rain-or-shine situation, so bring an umbrella if the forecast calls for it! And, obvi, it’s a 21-and-up affair, so no kiddos will be admitted to the fun and festivity.
[Disclosure: The Dallas Observer provided BrewFest tickets to The Dallas Diva. The opinions here are my own.]
