Brewers who've never exhibited in DFW are coming from Houston and Austin.
FORT WORTH The Best Little Brewfest in Texas takes place at Texas Motor Speedway in Fort Worth Saturday, June 22, and is expected to draw 4,000 tasters, including 500 VIP attendees. With more than 50 craft brewers and more than 100 beers, many of which will be new releases never tasted by the public before, this is sure to be an epic event to put on your annual summer calendar.
At this year's Best Little Brewfest in Texas, there will be a "Draft Wall of Courage" with close to 20 craft brews to challenge your taste buds and knowledge of brewing chemistry. This event is expected to draw brewers from all over Texas, including the greater Houston and Austin areas. Many of these brewers have never exhibited their beers in the DFW area before.
