100.3 Jack-FM to throw ‘Beer, Bourbon & Brisket Festival’ in Fort Worth

Posted 8:13am on Tuesday, Sep. 10, 2013

The motto at KJKK/100.3 FM “Jack-FM” is “Playing What We Want.” Now the eclectic classic-hits station is going for “eating and drinking what you want.” Within limits, of course, just like with the station’s music.

The CBS Radio-owned station announced Monday morning that it will throw the first “Beer, Bourbon & Brisket Festival” from 5 to 11 p.m. Sept. 28 at Panther Island Pavilion, 395 Purcey St. in Fort Worth.

Panther Island is of course the home of the “Rockin’ the River” series and other concert events, and the way the heat is going, it will probably still feel like summer on Sept. 28, so swimsuits are the suggested attire for this feed. But you can wear what you want. Within reason.

Participating vendors include Fort Worth’s Smokey’s Barbeque; Euless’ North Main BBQ; Daddy Rex's Twisted BBQ from Anna ( a bit of a drive from Fort Worth), and Houston-based (an even farther drive!) Holmes Smokehouse, as well as Robust Energy Drink and Unpredictable Snow Cones.

Other liquid refreshment -- at a craft-beer and bourbon-tasting tent -- will include samples from Dallas’ Deep Ellum Brewing Company, Community Beer Company, Lakewood Brewing Company, California’s Mendocino Brewing Company and Vermont’s Woodchuck Hard Cider, as well as from Samuel Adams. Spirit samples will include Angels’ Envy Kentucky Bourbon, Forty Creek Whisky and Texas Silver Star Whiskey.

The main stage will feature live music by Jace Everett, Somebody’s Darling and Whiskey Folk Ramblers. DJ Moxie will spin on the waterfront stage.

General admission is $10 in advance; A $25 advance ticket includes sampling coupons for the craft beer and bourbon tasting tent. A variety of food items and beverages will also be available for purchase.

The event is open to all ages, however, attendees must be at least 21 to participate in the craft beer and bourbon tastings.

Tickets are on sale now, and more information is available at www.BeerBourbonBrisket.com
