As if you needed another reason to hit up the State Fair of Texas when it opens Sept. 28. Deep Ellum Brewing Company is debuting a new beer at this year's fair: No Way Rosé.
Described as a "tart Southwest-styled rosé ale with a prickly pear punch," the beer is the result of DEBC joining forces with Austin's CANarchy Craft Brewery Collective. After the fair, the beer will see statewide distribution, according to a press release.

“Born out of a conversation between new coworkers, No Way Rosé is a brew that has thrown out the book on conventional beer styles,” Kyle Wilborn, Deep Ellum Brewing's lead brewer, said in the release. “With the goal of brewing a unique but approachable beer featuring a heavy dose of organic prickly pear juice, Texas wildflower honey, rhubarb and hibiscus, this sessionable brew can best be described as a southwestern rosé ale.”
"Juicy, tart and floral with just enough honey sweetness for balance, this 5.8 percent ABV brew is perfect for hot Texas nights," according to the release. "Raise a can to Big Tex and enjoy this rosé ale on the ferris wheel (Is that allowed? We don’t know.) while at the Cotton Bowl, or during any other State Fair festivity."
A locally brewed rosé/craft beer hybrid debuting at the fair? Dallas drinkers are gonna be all over this one.
