Dallas-based beer festival Untapped expanding to Nashville and Atlanta
Expect the festival in more cities in 2014, too.
Arlington-based production company Spune announced Monday a partnership with Paste Magazine that will expand the indie music and beer festival Untapped to a national scale.
As we reported in February, Untapped hits Fort Worth April 20 and has a Dallas date in September in the works. Expect Nashville and Atlanta festivals in October and November, respectively, according to Paste.
“We share a deep, abiding love for both independent music and craft beer – two things that are undoubtedly better together,” Paste’s Josh Jackson wrote. “We plan to expand to more cities in 2014.”
Untapped’s inaugural year at Trinity Groves in 2012 was a testament to the growing Dallas craft beer scene. It sold out in 2012 to an overwhelmingly supportive crowd.
Untapped festival first takes place in Fort Worth on April 20, featuring music by Justin Townes Earle, Deer Tick, Sarah Jaffe, and TENNIS. Local brewing companies Rahr and Sons Brewing Co., Cedar Creek Brewery, Deep Ellum Brewing Co., Franconia Brewing Co., Lakewood Brewing Co., and Peticolas Brewing Co. will return for a second year, while Armadillo Ale Works, Community Beer Company, Firewheel Brewing Co., Four Corners Brewing Co., Martin House Brewing Co., and Revolver Brewing will host sample tents for the first time.
Tickets are currently on sale for the April event. We’ll update you when we have details about the Dallas installment of Untapped.
