One of our favorite beer bars, the Meddlesome Moth in Dallas, is inviting you to a week-long party.
The Moth will mark its second anniversary soon, and they have a whole series of events planned for it.
They’re calling it April Ale Week. Each night of the week they will tap a different Texas-brewed craft beer. On some nights, folks from that night’s brewery will be there to talk about it.
Three of the breweries on the schedule (below) are DFW locals: Rahr & Sons, of Fort Worth, and Peticolas and Deep Ellum, both from Dallas.
It sounds like a great week. We can’t wait.
The Moth always has a very good selection of craft and imported beers, both on tap and bottled. And they’re bringing in some special stuff for their celebration.
Here’s the schedule, copied directly from their press release:
During the week, tappings will start at 5 p.m. Kegs will be tapped at noon during Saturday’s and Sunday’s activities. The tapping schedule and details are listed below:
