Murphy Craft Beer Festival at Murphy Central Park
Shannon Sutlief Recommends
Two dozen breweries — half of them from North Texas — will participate in this beer fest geared toward families. There’ll be live music, a car show and a children’s play place with bounce houses, face painting and a root beer challenge. For $30 in advance, $40 at the event, get a souvenir tasting cup and 12 2-ounce beer samples. Beer and wine will also be available for purchase without buying the sampling package. There’ll be a crawfish boil while supplies last for $10 for 1 pound or $15 for 2. Food trucks and other vendors will also have food for sale.
Access to the concert and kids zone are free. Anyone 21 and up who wants to sample beer must purchase a ticket: $30 ($40 at the door) includes sampling card with 12 2oz samples and a commemorative tasting cup. Additional sampling cards will be on sale for $2.
Crawfish can be purchased at the event: $10 for 1 lb; $15 for 2 lbs.
