You don't have to be a beer "snob" (or a snob of any kind) to fit in at the Big Texas Beer Fest. In fact, it's a great way for the beer-curious to learn what they like alongside seasoned drinkers. For those who already live-and-breathe beer, it's an opportunity to get your taste buds on harder-to-find varieties and special recipes. Pro-tip: Take an Uber, Lyft or ride-share of your choice. Not only does it help ensure everyone's safety, it also helps you skip potential traffic and parking challenges at Fair Park.

Dallas' original beer festival will feature beers from about 120 breweries pouring more than 500 beers. Sample rare brews, one-offs and special firkins. Talk to brewmasters and brewery owners. In addition to beer tastings, there will be plenty of food from food trucks and artisanal food vendors, and live "beer-friendly" music on the outdoor stage.

General admission for Friday is $35, $39 for Saturday. Ages 21+ only. Tickets include a sampling card for 12 2-ounce samples. Additional sample cards will be available to purchase
