There will be over 50 craft brewers and over 100 beers, many of which will be “one off’s” and new releases. Brewers from all over Texas including the greater Houston and Austin areas will be on hand and many of them have never had their beers in the DFW area. There will also be a "Draft Wall of Courage" with nearly 20 craft brews that will challenge beer fans taste buds and knowledge of brewing chemistry.
In addition to the many choices of beer, there will be live music featuring four local bands outside and seven acoustic musicians inside the garage and an assortment of food trucks for those who develop an appetite while sampling the beverages.
Event organizers are planning on 4,000 tasters including 500 VIP attendees. General admission tickets are $30 ($35 at the gate) and includes 12 two-ounce Craft Brew tastings -- extra tasting cards are $5. VIP tickets are $75 and include access to the VIP lounge with covered and outdoor seating, snacks and early admission (1 p.m.).
The proceeds from this event will be benefiting Cloud 9 Charities which is splitting the money received amongst the Alzheimer's Association and a charity for the Prevention of Teen Suicide. Cloud 9 Charities, a 501(c)(3), has given over $600,000 to local charities in the last 10 years.
