If you don’t end up with a cracked cell phone screen, or fading memories of fun random incidents then you did it wrong. Held at the Dallas Farmers Market again this year, BrewFest 2016 was a brewsky blast. Some of the best breweries in the state and across the country came out to provide samples of the sudsy stuff. This year, the beer wasn’t the only star of the party, BuzzBallz, Tequila Honor, Jameson Irish Whiskey and Dallas based On the Rocks Premium Cocktails also came out to share in the drunken glory. Here’s a look back at this year’s beer loving event. At least, from what I can remember. TxMb
How it all began.
Although pouring up Freaky Deaky, he looked like a Saddy Daddy.
At BrewFest, you're no one unless you are decked out in pretzel bling. Clearly, this fella is a high roller, just look at that cigar. #winning
Beautiful Brew Haha boy showing off his shirt. Just an FYI, the Brew Haha Comedy Series offers a comedy show, 3 craft beers, a brewery tour and a souvenir pint glass for just 20 bucks. Not too shabby.
Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream was there serving up free scoops of ice cream and democracy.
Had the opportunity to try Dallas based company On The Rocks premium cocktails. Both the Jalepeno - Pineapple Margarita and the Rye Old Fashioned went down nicely. Craft bottled cocktails ready for sipping, it's the answer boozers have been looking for.
Pow, pow, pow! Revolver Brewing never disappoints. This year I fell in love with their newly released Redshift, an American Spiced Ale finished with hibiscus and rose.
Pretty Tia Wines talking about the different flavors of BuzzBallz and the expansion of the Carrollton, Texas based company. They may not look like it, but these little balls pack a mighty spirited blow. My favorite was the Ginger Mule.
The cool display for the family owned Honor Tequila.
When you don't just drink beer, you wear it. #respect
Just a few broads who love beer. #whatfriendshipsaremadeof
If you're as addicted to grapefruit and grapefruit flavored anything as I am, this is the Shandy for you. It's a little bit sweet, but balances out with a nice tartness.
Light, and slightly tart, I fell in love with the Redbud with Cucumber by Independence Brewing Company in Austin. It's one of those brews that should be drank especially cold. But, it made me feel free and glorious.
Pouring up Dale's Pale Ale.
Towards the end of the evening I went down a Rabbit Hole.
The last hurrah.
The standard end of BrewFest face. Josh wore it well.
