Jack FM hosts beer, bourbon and barbecue festival in Fort Worth
FORT WORTH From the folks who brought you Sausage Fest comes a new event that will "help grown-ups bone up on the 'Three Bs'" -- that's Beer, Bourbon and Brisket at a festival from 5-11 p.m. September 28, according to a press release from CBS Local Media and 100.3 Jack FM.
The BBB Fest takes place at Panther Island Pavilion in Fort Worth, the site of the very popular Rockin' the River events this summer. Attendees are encouraged to wear swimsuits and bring their own tube for floating the Trinity.
The list of barbecue joints participating notably is missing some of Dallas' most highly rated. Participants so far, according to a press release, are: Daddy Rex's Twisted BBQ, Holmes Smokehouse, North Main BBQ and Smokey’s Barbeque. Kevin Thornburg, director of integrated marketing and events for CBS Radio, says more barbecue joints and craft beer companies may be added.
For the other B's, beer and bourbon, CBS says samples will flow from Samuel Adams, Deep Ellum Brewing Company, Community Beer Company, Lakewood Brewing Company, Mendocino Brewing Company, Woodchuck Hard Cider, Angels’ Envy Kentucky Bourbon, Forty Creek Whiskey and Texas Silver Star Whiskey.
Tickets are $10 online, or $25 including beer and bourbon tastings. Tickets are available for the same price at the door. People of all ages are welcome, but alcohol tastings are 21 and up, of course.
The event is one of several from CBS, which has started offering more events this year. "Our emphasis is on creating lifestyle events, such as this one, which allow us to bring together our stations, our clients and our listeners in fun and creative ways," Thornburg said.
