We've been talking about it non-stop for the past month or so, and the wait is finally (almost) over! New Main Brewing Company will be pouring more free beer at Pantegofest this Saturday, September 24th in beautiful Pantego, Texas!
For those of y'all unfamiliar with Pantego, get familiar: Pantego is a small town located inside Arlington, Texas near the intersection of Bowen Road and Park Row Drive. Pantegofest is a great way to meet all of the people and businesses in Pantego, including New Main Brewing, so we want to see y'all out there! The event is free until 5pm, then just $10 to take in the festival and live music.
This year marks a change for Pantegofest because all of the festivities will take place in one day. Previously, the entire weekend featured local musical acts, local artisans and businesses, and featured multiple bounce houses for the kiddos. This year, they have compressed all of that and more into a single day of fun and excitement, complete with a Pet Parade, VIP Beer area, and over 40 vendors.
The feature event is a Steak Cookoff with cash prizes up to $1000! There will also be an Appetizer Challenge and even a Kids Cook-off! Winners may advance to the national level as well, so if grilling is your thing, make sure to stop in for a taste. Tickets for these meals can be purchased on the Pantegofest website here. The evening will end with hometown heroes Dawn + Hawkes, The Brandon Rhyder Band and Chris Knight on the main stage to ring in Autumn the right way.
But as you may expect, we're pretty interested in the craft beer part of Pantegofest. You can sample all sorts of local beer and wine if you purchase a $10 VIP Tent ticket. We will have several of our beers available for tasting including our Victory or Death Pale Ale, Friday Night White Ale, Runaway Scrape Porter, and our famous Bigger NTX Stout on tap and flowing all day. We may even have some New Main Brewing swag for you to purchase to support our opening in the near future. If you're extra good, we might even have a few bottles of our limited edition Bourbon Barrel-Aged Bigger NTX stout available to taste as well. As before, we can't charge for a drop of it so it is all FREE! (Of course donations are accepted and we might even do a little dance for you to show our thanks!)
Pantegofest is one of the best local events to kick off the fall season, so bring the whole fam damily out to meet us. New Main Brewing Company is so excited to be joining this community! We can't wait to pour you a beer and think about all of the good things Autumn has to offer. Speaking of things to look forward to in the coming months...
We have some exciting upcoming events to announce!
We will be pouring New Main beer at the Viridian Farmer's Market, Craft Beer Experience, and Pumpkin Patch Saturday, October 15th at the Viridian in North Arlington. Come enjoy the cooler weather and beautiful Autumn colors with us while tasting our award-winning beer. We might even add some pumpkin spice to a beer or two in the spirit of the event! Get everything you need to cook a hearty fall meal and taste some great craft beer with us.
We have also confirmed that we will be participating in Martin House's Boo-ery Tour on Saturday, October 29th. If you've never been to a Boo-ery Tour at Martin House, you are definitely missing out! Martin House have been pulling out all the stops lately releasing new beer after new beer alongside their already stellar main-stays. We will of course have our own craft brews available for tasting including some crowd favorites from our recent events, Prairie Sky Saison and Gone Toobin' IPA! Make sure to show up in costume and participate in the contest. I have it on good authority that the winners will receive all kinds of Martin House goodies and maybe more, so BE THERE!!
Finally, I'm so excited to announce that we will be participating in LUCK's 3rd Anniversary Party in Dallas on Sunday, October 23rd. It's hard to believe it's only been 3 years since we've been graced with the amazing food and super local Texas craft beer selection that LUCK has to offer. We personally love the pretzels with beer cheese fondue and stone ground mustard, and their "Texas Style" Signature Pastrami sandwich is insanely delicious. Pair anything on their menu with a constantly updated list of the best craft beer DFW has to offer, and it's no surprise to see how popular this place is, year after year. We will be pouring free tastings of our beer alongside some other up and coming breweries in the area, so come celebrate 3 years with LUCK and get a sneak peek of what the next 3 years has to offer!
