Franconia Brewing will be going all out again this year for their annual Dallas Beer Week Kickoff Party, bringing together the best in local music, food, entertainment and you guessed it, lots and lots of fresh Franconia beer. Last year Brew Master Dennis Wehrmann and company held an extremely successful kickoff party, which raised hundreds for a McKinney homeless shelter. Dennis is doing the same this year, with tons of limited addition Franconia Oak Aged Fall’N Bock, Winter Wheat, and Sarah’s Dark Side, and a buffet from On the Border (additional cost).

$15 gets you four beer tickets and a brewery glass – $10 of which goes to the Dallas Burrito Project and Fort Worth Burrito Project, a great cause to provide delicious burritos to the homeless. If this isn’t enough, consider setting a new record on “El Toro”, the mechanical bull or strike up a conversation with Donnie Nelson of the Dallas Mavericks.

So mark your calendars and RSVP to Franconia’s event on Facebook. No need to buy tickets in advance, just show up and be ready to get Dallas Beer Week started off right.

Available beers:

Kolsch, Dunkel, Wheat, Amber, Sarah’s Dark Side (one of only 3 remaining kegs), Oak Aged Fall’N Bock, 2011 Winter Wheat.
