One of the largest craft brew festivals in Texas, this three-day celebration is also known as super family-friendly and offers festivities for everyone! Main Street (in Historic Downtown Grapevine) comes alive as more than 160,000 people gather to join the fun. Come to enjoy great food, attractions, live entertainment (including Ray Scott and Martin Fry of ABC) and an action-packed KidZone (for the mom and dad tag team). If you’re a “Back to the Future” fan, get excited — the DeLorean Time Machine will be at the festival for awesome photo-ops!
Now’s your chance to walk the walk and talk the talk with craft brew enthusiasts from around the country—featuring more than 75 craft brews, including the “Lone Star State” pavilion featuring all Texas brews. Your education in craft brew starts at the Craft Brew Garden in the middle of the festival grounds and includes eight 3-ounce pours from the massive selection (along with a souvenier glass). This area requires a separate ticket, and you can purchase it in advance for $15 here, $18 at festival. Festival admission is not included.
But before you award a couple of new brews shelf-space in your fridge, pop in to any one of the three pavilions: The Lone Star State of Mind Pavilion, The Grapevine Wine Pavilion and The Wine & Beer Pavilions—for final craft brew tips, a last sample and a final cheer to a weekend for the books.
