Untapped Fort Worth 2015 in Pictures

Thursday, 16 July 2015 01:46
After almost a 2 month summer break DocHopHead is back! I'd like to start by posting some fun times from the recent Untapped Festival from Fort Worth 2015. And, since we're reminiscing about the good times at Untapped, here's a reminder: Untapped Dallas is coming up sooner than you think: November 7th, 2015. And they'll have even more brews than…

The Libations and Legions of Untapped 2015

Monday, 25 May 2015 17:20
Photography by Julio César Cedillo I really enjoyed the Untapped Festival in Fort Worth this year. I’d never been before and didn’t know what to expect. It had half the beers of the Big Texas Beer Fest, but it did not disappoint. It was as much a music festival as it was a beer festival, which turned out great for…

Untapped Festival Fort Worth 2015

Tuesday, 19 May 2015 21:41
Photography by Julio César Cedillo Well, I’ve had a few days to reflect, and I’m convinced the recent Untapped Beer Festival in Fort Worth was truly amazing. The day started out not looking so great with dark, menacing clouds swirling about and the DocHopHead crew having no idea what to expect with parking, lines, and whatnot. Julio, DocHopHead, myself, and…

The Big Texas Beer Fest 2015

Friday, 24 April 2015 14:19
Photography by Julio César Cedillo I wasn’t sure what to expect from the Big Texas Beer Fest when I bought my VIP ticket several months back. The fest is touted as one of the largest in the region, and this year it drew five thousand attendees and 106 breweries from across the world (mostly from the United States).   Julio,…

Return to the Collective Brewing Project

Friday, 06 February 2015 18:00
A collaborative effort by Edward Brown, Kerim Razack and Julio Cédillo So with all the “Return to” stories on DocHopHead you’re probably thinking we draw our story ideas from Star Wars or something. Okay, the only other one was Return to the Bearded Lady, but you’re probably going to see several of these type stories in the future. The truth…

Deep Ellum Brewing

So first a little disclaimer. The DocHopHead crew is guilty of a little truth-in-advertising faux pas. While we offer do comprehensive North Texas craft beer coverage, our blogs can be a little Fort Worth-centric. That’s because I live and work largely in Cow Town and DocHopHead really is a doctor who works at Harris Hospital. That being said, we try…

To The Promised Land

Dogfish Head Brewery, Milton, DE Style: Freakin' Awesome! ABV: yes indeed Last year the family and I took a ride up the East Coast. There were numerous points of interest that we all wanted to see. I only had one on my “must see list” and that was my favorite brewery, Dogfish Head. It was really the only thing in…

Return to The Bearded Lady

Wednesday, 12 November 2014 18:00
Photography by Julio César Cedillo Return to the Bearded Lady, aka Old Chub extravaganza, aka Oskar Blues outing, aka Too Much Beer Not Enough Time... You get the point. It was an epic night. This all started with North Texas Beer Week. I was perusing the various festivities in the DFW area and happened along something at The Bearded Lady.…

Panther Island Brewing

Thursday, 18 September 2014 19:00
Photography by Julio Cesar Cedillo I love beer, but the people who make and sell it can be just as fascinating. That’s part of the fun of doing a beer blog -you get to meet the people behind the beer. Two of those people are Ryan McWhorter and Mike Harper, the founders of Panther Island Brewing. Panther Island beer, which…

Collective Brewing Project

I spend a good part of my time profiling local bands and beer enthusiasts, and I’ll admit, there are some obvious comparisons to be made. Yes, rock stars enjoy excessive amounts of beer on and off stage, but that’s not what I’m getting at here. Both professions have a deep yearning to be untethered from an 8 to 5 job.…

Best Little Brewfest in Texas 2014

Monday, 30 June 2014 19:00
Last Saturday, the beer gods were smiling on me. As little as one week ago, I had no idea my schedule was on a crash course with one of Texas’ largest annual craft beer festivals, the Best Little Brewfest in Texas. This year the brewfest happened to be in my home town of Lewisville, Texas. Actually, “happened” doesn’t quite explain…

The Big Texas Beer Fest 2014

Monday, 09 June 2014 19:00
Photography by Julio César Cedillo The Big Texas Beer Fest was the first beer fest I had attended. I always wanted to attend a festival but they never previously aligned with my schedule. Also beer lineups were never previously intriguing. I had ordered VIP tickets to this event months in advance at the suggestion of Julio Cedillo (fellow hophead and…

The Bearded Lady

Written by Edward Brown and Kerim Razack  Craft Beer Converts Apply Inside  I remember the first time I walked into a gastropub. It was when I was in medical school in the early 1990s. It had a great vibe. There was a lot of dark wood, nice ambient lighting and a cool beer garden outside. My friends and I would…
