It seems like people all over social media spent Labor Day weekend posting about the end of summer.

Dallasites know aummer isn't over yet.

That's why when this past Saturday hit 102 degrees, a cold beer was nearly mandatory.

BrewFest made that easy with hundreds of beers for people to taste throughout the evening.

We had so many beers, it would take up your whole screen to list them, but some local favorites were there from Deep Ellum Brewing Company, Peticolas Brewing Company and more. Other Texas and national beers were poured, too (as was a personal favorite of this writer, Breckenridge Brewery).

Food was plenty, too — we're not pouring a bunch of beer without access to eats in the heat, after all. Fletcher's Original State Fair Corny Dogs, Philly Pretzel Factory, Taqueria Taxco and Tutta's Pizza were all giving us sustenance.

Also present were our friendly photographers who braved the heat to bring you some excellent photos of the event. Check out the BrewFest slideshow to relive the night or see why you should come next year.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
