    Best Little Brewfest in Texas is a well-organized event with an expansive beer list – rest assured, I will never miss another again and you shouldn’t either!

    BLBFIT is located in Old Town Lewisville – which if you haven’t been down there, is adorable.  The mix of original Main St. architecture with modern waterways and landscaping is just so quintessentially Texan. And jeez – so was the HEAT!  The city had closed off the roads so the fest can take place in the street and let me tell you – that black asphalt loves to absorb and radiate scorching Texas heat!  But – the coordinators thought ahead and covered every single booth with white tents – so smart!  Very rarely was I caught out of the shade of these tents and that was to mosey into the air conditioned Grand Theatre for awesome food in the VIP area and –m-drumroll- real toilets with real sinks and real SOAP!  There is nothing worse than being at a beer fest with port-o-potties if you’re a lady (or rudimentary hygenic)!

    And the beers – oh, the beers!  Blocks and blocks of the best beer in North Texas.  Yes, it was just as glorious as it sounds!  The local breweries pulled out the stops with their specialty kegs – Four Corners was pouring a Grapefruit El Super Bee, Rabbit Hole poured a dry-hopped Off With Your Red, and Panther Island was slingin’ their Peach Wheat SummaGeez that was out of this world!  I was also happy to see lots of the new breweries out there – Woodcreek Brewing, Four Bullets, and Denton County were all new to me.  I especially enjoyed Woodcreek’s Forefathers Belgian Strong Ale.  The tasting glasses were too cute as well – general admission got a teeny ceramic red solo (perfect for Whiskers next beer pong tourney) and VIPs drank from dainty mason jars with handles.  I use mine as a single wildflower vase on my kitchen window sill.

    Screen Shot 2016-08-04 at 6.41.51 PMWhat was that I was saying about the breweries pulling out all the stops?  Uinta brought out their Cucumber Farmhouse (that is very limited in Texas – almost exclusively to festivals) that was bright and funky with just enough cucumber to brighten the flavor and followed by a hint of gin and juniper that melded well with the saison’s funk.  I had my first sip of The Collective Brewing Project’s newly debuted Plum PGS (Petite Gold Sour) – wow!  The plum perfectly balances with the tartness of the brew to really captures the essence of summer in a glass.  By far my favorite PGS fruit variation yet!  Another one of my favorites from the Fest was Oak Highlands’ Freaky Deaky – this hoppy tripel sits at 10%, but with how smooth it goes down you’d never know.  I was on a mission to find this beer for a brewery volunteer because she had heard rave reviews from the fest goers.  I grabbed her a taster and one for myself… and went back for another!

    All in all, June 18th was a killer day and that was all thanks to the hard work of the BLBFIT staff.  They knocked this fest out of the park!  I have to sincerely say that it was one of the best beer fests I’ve been to… and you will never catch me missing another again!
