We are proud to be home to the only professional brewing competition in Texas. We employ BJCP guidelines and judges, and winners here have gone on to GABF and won similar awards.
There will be a display of the winners in the lobby of the MCL Grand Theater. The awards will be at 4 PM at the Main Stage in Ferguson Plaza.
A beer list will be available closer to the date of the festival. Until then, please check our website for the most current listing of breweries and follow us on Facebook for updates! Be assured that there will be some awesome choices for you to sample.
YES! YES! YES! We have decided to add a Kid Zone inside Ferguson Plaza. Strollers are not recommended. Instead, please use drones with straps around your precious cargo. Use the “stall” mode when you want to sample.
Children age 11 and under are free. Ages 12-20 are $10.
We will have a wide selection of food trucks and vendors with a variety of food and nonalcoholic beverages for sale from open to approximately 7PM.
Yes, the DCTA A-Train stop is a few blocks away from the event site as well as options for Lyft and Uber. Or you can walk the short distance to the Front Gate.
We have parking agreements with several close businesses. There is parking up and down Main St., Charles St., and especially areas south of Main and east down Church St.
We are proud to be the only 100% for charity beer festival in Texas. All proceeds from the festival go through Cloud 9 Charities to benefit Bedtime Rescue which is our own program designed to provide temporary housing to homeless women with children. Check out Cloud9Charities.org to see who we gave to last year. Annually we donate $70,000 to charity!
Sorry, but no. While we’re at it, the following items are also prohibited: Guns, strollers, pets (children don’t count), outside food and beverages, tasers, bazookas, tanks, missiles, aircraft, fireworks, explosives, any kind of drug, any kind of weapon.. Pretty much anything you’d get arrested for having in public.
No pets allowed. Beer is bad for animals!
Smoking and vaping is prohibited around the brewery tents, but will be allowed in the outside aspects of the festival such as Ferguson Plaza and grassy knolls, but watch for gunfire. Sorry, too soon?
The core staff will handle any who has had too much to drink, and Lewisville PD will be on site for anyone who becomes unruly. There will be options for people who have had too much to drink to have a safe ride home using Uber and Lyft. We offer a Designated Driver ticket for only $10. Much cheaper than a lawyer.
