7 Activities For Beer Enthusiasts To Enjoy This Fall


August 2019

In partnership with Smart City Apartment Locating. Original blog post here.

Dallas is quickly becoming a beer-lover’s paradise, with new breweries popping up all the time! And while white wine seems fitting for the summers, beer and cider are more fitting once the leaves start changing and football returns. So we got thinking - what fun beer-focused activities are taking place?!

Dallas Observer Brewfest

September 7


Dallas Observer Brewfest

Dallas Observer’s BrewFest is back for its 9th year on Saturday, September 7th at the Dallas Farmers Market. It will be the third year that Smart City Locating is sponsoring – look out for the official BrewFest x Smart City koozie and stop by their booth where they will be talking all things apartments and giving out free swag!

And the event itself? You can sample over 500 local, international and craft beers. While there will be food for purchase, including corny dogs, pizza and tacos, you’ll probably want to spend your time (and calories) sampling beers too!

And for tickets, purchase the “Beer Me Pack,” a 4-pack of General Admission tickets and save $40 (limited availability) OR use discount code “SMARTCITY19” to purchase single General Admission tickets for $35 each until September 1st!



September 14 & 28
