From dark stouts to pale ales, it’s bottoms up, as the North Texas Beer Festival makes its return Saturday, May 12 in an all-new location at the Irving Convention Center at Las Colinas.
The North Texas Beer Festival is North Texas’ premier event dedicated to educating attendees about craft beer culture and brewers – and is the best place to find your new favorite brew.
More than 50 breweries will sponsor the festival, ranging from Samuel Adams and Franconia to New Belgium, Imperial and Magic Hat, and even including new Texas breweries Guadalupe Brewing out of New Braunfels and Revolver Brewing from Granbury. From ales to lagers, well-known brands to newbies on the scene, all styles of beer will be represented at the festival.
Wine lovers are not forgotten, as there will be plenty to swirl and taste. Featured wineries will include Landon, Calias, Messina Hof, Brushy Creek and D’Vine Wines of Fort Worth, among others.
This year’s event will also feature the Negra Modelo Culinary Corner, a chef stage with demonstrations on cooking with your favorite beer and pairing dishes with beer. Chef John Franke of The Ranch at Las Colinas will perform a culinary demonstration, as well as other local culinarians.
The 50,000-square-foot main conference hall at the Irving Convention Center at Las Colinas and the second floor terrace will play host to a variety of activities, including tastings, home brewing classes and will feature more than 100 exhibitors with everything from beers to home brewing kits, wine sampling, gourmet foods, cigars and more.
The Beer Garden on the beautiful, second- floor terrace will feature musical acts Mingo Fishtrap, J.R. Byrd and Leah Marr. Educational sessions will be held in Brewers’ Breakout on the main floor, with notable brewers speaking on a variety of topics related to brewing beer.
