The Craft Brew & Que Festival is the only one of its kind in North Texas. Set against the beautiful backdrop of Little Elm Park on Lake Lewisville, this event captures the essence of an All-American afternoon at the lake: beer, barbeque, live music and good times.
The backbone of the Craft Brew & Que Festival is, of course, beer. Over 200 craft beers will be highlighted from all over the region. Local, state and regional craft breweries are invited to sample their finest draughts, while larger distributors will represent national and international brews.
Little Elm Craft Brew & Que is free to attend, tickets for beer sampling can be purchased here. Beer Tasting Tickets are $30+fee each ($40 at the door, if available) for 12 2 ounce samples and a commemorative pint glass. Additional sampling cards are $5 for 6 2oz samples.
Little Elm Craft Brew & Que has invited local wineries to join in the festivities. This portion of the event is separate from the beer tasting event and will require a separate ticket to participate. You can purchase a Wine Sample Pass for $30+fee each ($40 at the door if available). This pass includes a souvenir wine glass and 30 tickets. Each ticket is worth $1. Samples will run $2 for a 1 ounce pour. You can also use these tickets to purchase a full glass of wine. Price is set by the winery depending on the wine and is usually a 5-6 ounce pour. Individual tickets can be purchased at the gate for face value in packs of $5, $10 and $20.
Understanding that not everyone is a beer enthusiast, wine and other non-alcoholic choices will be available.
Parking will be $10+fee per vehicle ($20 at the event) and anyone with a season parking pass is covered.
Not to be confused with a cook-off, our festival will highlight traditional and exotic barbeque offerings from all over the region. From Korean barbeque to exotic meats, vendors are encouraged to offer smaller portions at affordable prices to allow for greater sampling opportunities by attendees.
