Craft Beer Lovers Unite - It's a Brewvolution!

Scenes from the Big Texas Beer Fest this past April

(Press Release)  Texas Brewvolution Beer Festival is the newest brainchild from organizers of the Big Texas Beer Fest and Untapped festivals.  The two forces have joined together to bring us their latest incarnation for great beers and a well-organized festival. Set to kick off NTX Beer Week, Texas Brewvolution will presumably be the largest collection of Texas craft brewers in one place in North Texas, with 25+ currently arranged. This is the inaugural year for the festival and the 3rd year for NTX Beer Week, formerly known as Dallas Beer Week. Scheduled for November 9 at Dallas’ Fair Park, tickets are on sale now, which expects to draw a select handful of the best breweries from around the world, to serve alongside the 25+ Texas craft brewers.

“We work very hard to maintain great relationships with breweries and distributors by putting on great events, as brewers and distributors are becoming more selective on who they choose to work with” said one of the festival’s organizers, Chad Montgomery from Big Texas Beer Fest. Texas Brewvolution is the perfect opportunity to sample the best of what Texas brewers have to offer. From breweries such as Peticolas, which brought home a gold medal from the Great American Beer Fest in 2012, to Jester King, an Austin-based brewery who is rarely seen at festivals outside their home turf, this festival offers something for beer lovers and novices alike. “We really searched the entire state for some of the more esoteric brands you just don’t ever see up here in our neck of the woods. As far as new festival participants, we’re particularly excited to have Argus Cidery from the Austin hill country participating; these guys have some neat farmhouse-style ciders we don’t typically see in North Texas” conveyed another of the festival’s organizers, Corey Pond.

The festival will donate a portion of the proceeds to the North Texas Food Bank. “It seemed like the perfect match for a Texas-themed festival, to support this local charity where we’ve personally witnessed their commitment to feed hungry North Texans” noted Montgomery’s wife and festival co-organizer, Nellie. Expect live music from Shotgun Friday, the Hanna Barbarians and The Roomsounds to keep things lively, as well as a great selection of local artisanal food and craft vendors throughout the hall. Attendees can take the DART rail to the Fair Park stop, to arrive within mere steps of the venue, which is the Centennial Hall. Visit the festival website at for more information.
