Origins of the Festival
Chad and Nellie Montgomery visited Denver in September 2010 and attended the Great American Beer Festival (GABF). The entire region came alive with beer events as far away as 100 miles from the city. Not long after returning, they decided to bring that style of event home to Dallas, Texas.
Many beer events benefit charity, bring good people together to drink amazing beers, promote small businesses (breweries, restaurants, great bars, and more), and the local economy. We had no idea why Dallas didn’t have a similar event, but we knew that had to be fixed.
Ten years ago, the largest event we’d ever planned was our wedding with just over 100 people in attendance. We’re no different than anyone who attends our festival; we’re just two people who love great beer, small businesses, supporting local charities, and festivals.
Our hope and intentions are that every brewery and attendee who participates feels like this event is their own, and something to be proud of. This event doesn’t belong to us, it belongs to you, the attendee. Over the course of 7 years, we’ve been able to provide almost 200,000 meals to hungry North Texans thanks to our partnership with the North Texas Food Bank. We hope to continue this well into the future!
