Summer Brewery Events to Enjoy
by Haley Lawson
Best Summer Brewery events to enjoy before School starts DFW is booming with craft breweries and they are great places to hang out with friends and family of all ages who enjoy good beer, food trucks, live music, trivia, family night and more. Breweries are about so much more than just drinking beer; they are about community, passion, family, entertainment and conversation. Breweries are also great places to escape the summer heat without having to go to a stuffy restaurant and drop $100+ and have to keep your kids in a chair or leave your dog at home. Breweries are very family friendly and many breweries are dog friendly if they have outdoor seating. Many events give back to the community as well! Breweries all over DFW have had awesome events all summer long! School is just around the corner so if you haven’t enjoyed one of these events yet, do so before its too late!
