Mark your calendars: North Texas Beer Week returns November 9
It very well may be the hoppiest week this fall.
Amid the local brewery openings and craft beer festivals comes a celebration of suds called North Texas Beer Week. Organizers of the drinking extravaganza recently announced official dates for the festival this fall: November 9-16.
Beer Week includes beer dinners, brew master meet-and-greets, rare tappings, limited releases, homebrew demonstrations, classes and good times spanning several bars and taprooms in North Texas. New this year is a beer festival called Texas Brewvolution on November 9 organized by Chad Montgomery of Big Texas Beer Fest.
Beer Week details and events are still being finalized, but an announcement concerning the festival is expected within a week, according to Montgomery.
In its third year, Beer Week has undergone a few changes, including the name. Formerly known as Dallas Beer Week, the eight-day party was dubbed North Texas Beer Week to encompass craft offerings from all over DFW, according Matt Dixon, founder of website Dallas Brew Scene.
Unlike previous years, Dixon said the week is run entirely by staples of the North Texas craft beer community, including Corey Pond, owner of The Common Table; Fritz Rahr, founder of Rahr & Sons Brewing Company; and Sam Wynne, beer director of The Flying Saucer.
We’ll keep you updated as more information bubbles up. For now, mark your calendars for what should be the hoppiest week this fall.
