What? Untapped Dallas.
Untapped Festival is a craft beer & music festival series that takes place in Dallas, FT Worth, Houston and now Austin and San Antonio, Texas. It began three years ago as two friends sharing a passion for craft beer and live music. The idea resonated with so many people that we’ve been able to spread to new cities and expand on the concept tremendously.
When? Saturday, November 7.
VIP pass holders are able to enter the venue at early as 2:30pm (first crack at the beers y’all!). All other pass holders can enter starting at 3:30pm.
Where? Fair Park, Dallas, TX
Fair Park is one of Dallas’ most recognizable landmarks, full of history and memories of the State Fair for most Texans. Some of Dallas’ largest events are hosted at Fair Park and it is well suited to accommodate the throngs of thousands of craft beer lovers that will attend Untapped Dallas 2015.
Why? Because. Craft Beer.
We’re passionate about craft brewing and the community of people that produce craft beer. We created Untapped Festival to educate people about the hundreds of amazing craft beers brewed in the US and, in Texas in particular; and to celebrate the people that brew them.
How’s It Work? Sample Beer. See Live Music.
GA tickets let you see the music & purchase canned beer (assuming you’re of age). GA + Beer tickets include the music and a beer sampling card (for 12 samples). Preferred Tasting tickets include all of the above, plus early access to the event, access to air conditioned VIP lounges and other benefits. Over 200 beers will be served in 2 oz samples throughout the day, while bands play live on three stages inside Fair Park.
Will You Be Able To Purchase Full Beers? Absolutely!
Delicious canned beer from a special TBA craft brewery will be sold throughout the festival to anyone over the age of 21 who does not appear to be intoxicated already.
Will There Be Food? Yes!
We believe that the passion for craft beer is closely tied to an appreciation for organic, premium ingredients and farm-to-table thinking. Untapped Dallas is partnering with a selection of Dallas’ most unique food providers to complement your palate as you enjoy the many dozens of fine brews brought together at the festival.

Will There Be Discounts? Not so much…
We may issue certain private invitations through our valued partners which include discounted rates; but other than that, no…we have no discounts planned.
Is the event 21+? Actually, no.
We welcome minors to appreciate the fantastic live music at Untapped Fest. Children under 10 get in free; 10 and up must purchase a General Admission ticket.
How many beers can I sample? Lots…
Per TABC guidelines we can only sell 24 ounces of beer at a time, but you can really sample as much as you like. The purchase of a Concert + Beer Package or VIP Package ticket provides you a tasting cup and “Beer Sampling Card” and which is good for twelve 2 oz samples. Additional beer sampling cards can be purchased for $5.
Are there full beers available? Hell yes!
For $5 you can purchase full beers from the Goose Island Beer Garden, Untapped Pub and two Canned Stands.
Can I upgrade my ticket? Yes, if tickets are available
So long as we have the tickets you want available still we would be happy to upgrade your tickets at the Prekindle box office for the difference in price.
Can I transfer my tickets to someone else? Yes you can!
