ntx beer week picks

















North Texas Beer Week is fast approaching us (starting this Friday October 31) and the number of events is staggering this year. As much as I would love to hit up every single one, I'm pretty sure that would be impossible and a trip to the ER would be the end result. However, I have picked out events each day that I would not only love to hit up but also will realistically be able to attend as well.

As much as I would love to attend the Brewer's Ball on Nov 7, I just can't justify spending $125 for a ticket. However, it looks like it'll be an amazing event so if you can go, go! 

Below are the events I am going to try to hit up. If you see me, come by and say hello. If you recite a LOTR quote upon meeting me, I might just buy you a pint.

I will be here a lot during NTX Beer Week
