We love to eat and we love great beers. Let us share with you our views on what Dallas has to offer in fine (and not so fine) dining and fine beers.
Dallas has few diversions other than eating, drinking and shopping.....and shopping does not interest us.
So we spend our time hopping from restaurant to restaurant and to every pub that we can find in search of the perfect meal and the perfect beer.
We randomly review restaurants and bars, dishes and beers at whim and give our brutally honest opinions of our findings. And while we concentrate on Dallas, we travel far and wide to sample cuisine from all regions of the country and beyond.

Best Little Brewfest in Texas Returns June 17
Best Little Brewfest in Texas
the only non for profit Brewfest in Texas!
Howdy, Y'all. You are invited to attend the 5th annual Best
Little Brewfest in Texas on Saturday, June 17, 2017. We are
an outdoor festival under large tents in the streets of Old
Town Lewisville celebrating craft beer. Beer? Did you say
BEER? We have 95 breweries with great craft beer from
Texas and all over the country-sea to shining sea! Other
adult beverages include ciders, hard lemonade and hard
tea. Soft drinks and flavored water is available for the
designated drivers out there. Guess what? Ten sponsored
breweries will each have at least 6 beer selections, even
special one-off beers made just for our event and other
rare tappings in the upper grassy area of the Wayne
Ferguson Plaza. These breweries are in a cooler location
closer to the music so you can tickle your taste buds and
your auditory devices.
At 4 pm we hold our Professional Brewers Competition
Award program inside the MCL Grand Theater, where
we honor the best beer in about 29 categories from
commercially brewed beer in Texas. Join us in the
Black Box theater inside the MCL Grand Theater for
this exciting event and take a break from the sun.
We have 2 music stages that will feature great local
bands (TBA) inside the Wayne Ferguson Plaza on
the Main Stage and an Acoustic stage to sooth your
soul while cold beer soothes your throat.
Got kiddos? Our target audience is 21+. While not
a children's event, some do come with their parents.
Strollers are strongly discouraged due to space concerns.
Come hungry! There are 6 food trucks as well as
items such as kettle corn, shaved ice, beef jerky and
spiced nuts to keep you in search of the next best
beer you have ever tasted!
VIP admission is $70 and $90 with the shirt. Shirts
will be ready for pick-up at the festival, no waiting in
line required! VIP festival-goers have access to an
air conditioned room with finger food snacks and
choice beer selections. VIP starts at 3 pm, an hour
and a half early-get those limited specialty beers
before they run out!
General Admission is $40 or $65 with a special
pre-made cool festival t-shirt. GA starts at 4:30 pm
and the festival ends at 8 pm-the cooler part of the
day! If you choose a shirt package it will be pre-made
before the event and waiting on you. Note: The law
allows 12 samples at 2 oz. each, but we have additional
tasting cards for only $5 which gives you 12 more samples.
You do the math!
We give back! 100% of our profits support Cloud 9 Charities,
a 501(c)3, that distributes the funds to deserving, local
non-profit service providers who help needy women,
children and families. So bring your family and friends
and know that you are helping your community. Bring
Dad since it is the Saturday before Father's Day-best gift ever!
I am lucky enough to have a group of good friends who share my passion for great beers and inspired dining. My goal is to entice you into sampling something different, something uncommon, something outside the box. Join us in the neverending search for the perfect beer and the perfect meal.
