Making Dallas Even Better

Ticket Giveaway: A Pair of Tickets to Untapped Festival on September 8

I just got off the phone with Corey Pond, one of the organizers behind this whole Untapped Festival shebang that’s happening on Saturday, September 8 from 1 to 11 p.m. Not only is there going to be an incredible lineup of Indie rock bands (The Burning Hotels, David Dondero, The Eastern Sea, etc.) at Trinity Groves, but there’s also going to be 50 different breweries with well over 100 beers at this thing. Holy cow. And 20-30 beers are rare and limited editions. Some of them have been brewed especially for this event, like Deep Ellum Brewing Co.’s green tea and sriracha ace (of the hop variety), Peticolas’ vanilla bean velvet hammer, and Rahr’s barrel-aged chile beer.

If you’d like two free tickets to the Untapped Festival, tell us what your favorite local beer is down below in the comments. The ticket winner gets two concert + beer tickets (each valued at $30), which includes a 2 oz. glass so you can sample 12 different kinds of beer. I’ll pick the random winner at 5:30 p.m. today, and that person (with a legit email address) will find out how to claim his or her tickets.

    Deep Ellum did a Coffee Brown Ale at an early dinner I went to at Cane Rosso. I’ve not heard from it since, but it was incredible – a rich nutty brown ale that smelled like a fresh roasted french press. (BRING IT BACK)

    Definitely DEBC’s IPA, closely followed by Rahr Iron Thistle

    Actually let me change that by moving DEBCs Farmhouse Wit to the top of my list
