North Texas Craft Beer Events (updated 5/28/17)

There looks to be festive times ahead, as not one, but two area beer festivals are on the docket for the coming weekend.

The first of these in Index Fest, formerly known as Untapped, which happens on Saturday at Panther Island Pavilion in Fort Worth. A lineup of over 80 breweries will be pouring more than 300 beers for attendees, who will also be treated to live music from a number of national acts.

Also happening on Saturday, the Town of Little Elm is back with its Craft Brew & Que festival, which pairs beer from local and national breweries with barbecue offerings from around the region. Admission to the event is free, with barbecue plates sold individually and beer sampling cards available for $25 in advance (click here to purchase a ticket), or $35 at the door.

As for what else is going on this week, other items worth a look include the Hello Summer Tarts Tapping at Goodfriend on Monday, Yeti Sightings with Great Divide at Kool Keg on Tuesday, and the It's Saul Good events occurring at Bluffview and Lakewood Growler on Wednesday. Then on Thursday, seek out Sasquatch in barrel-aged form at the 903 Tap Takeover at Braindead, or do a little pre-gaming for Index Fest at the official Pre-Party at Wild Acre. Finally, once Sunday rolls around, it'll be time for another edition of donut and beer pairings at LUCK.

Cheers!
