Dallas-Fort Worth's biggest beer drinking holiday is almost here.

North Texas Beer Week takes over the region Nov. 6-15 with a variety of special tastings, pint nights, and brewer meet-and-greets. While there's plenty to look forward to, the big kickoff comes Saturday, Nov. 7 by way of Untapped Festival.

Untapped Festival Dallas: The Flaming Lips / Dr. Dog / Cloud Nothings / The Mowgli's / Elle King

Now in its fourth year, the indie music and craft beer soiree is moving locations to Dallas' historic Fair Park in hopes of doing things bigger than ever before. This is Texas after all. The event includes tunes from the Flaming Lips, Dr. Dog, the Pharcyde, among other bands, and per today's announcement, samples from more than 100 craft microbreweries from around the world.

The list of breweries and brands that will be serving some 400 different beers is no doubt evidence of the Lone Star State's boom in craft beer with an impressive 45 Texas establishments represented, 28 of which are from D-FW. Drinkers shouldn't plan on indulging strictly in local suds though -- there are plenty of national and international options, too. See for yourself:
