Gilley's Dallas


untap dal


At its origin, Untapped was designed by its organizers as an event equally focused on quality music and beer, a balance uncommon at music festivals and rarely found at beer events. The aim is not about the quantity of selection but rather the curating of the best in both craft beer and emerging local and national bands. A few of our favorite things so to speak! The addition of local artisans, quality food vendors, and unique locations add texture to each event and create a vibrant village of activity. What started as a self-serving shindig designed to showcase our personal interests turned out to be something that resonates in a way that is meaningful to us and our supporters!

Why? Why not?  Basically we’re passionate about great beer & great music and felt like there were thousands of like-minded people who would want to come hang out with us in a great spot and sample a wide range of amazing beers and tunes.  If that doesn’t sound like a good time then this probably isn’t for you.

What type of tickets are available and where do I purchase them?  Because it’s a beer sampling event you have several ticket choices.  Don’t get confused.  To purchase tickets for the event, click here.  VIP tickets will only be available for pre-purchase and not available the day of the event

What payment methods will be accepted?  You will be able to purchase Admission tickets, additional beer tickets, event merchandise and food from food trucks will be available to purchase using cash or credit card.  Individual vendors will each have their own payment policies.  We will not accept any sort of trade.  Unless it’s really good, like a cool car or something.

Will there be an ATM available on-site?  Yes, we plan on having an ATM on site.  However, we urge you to bring cash for the event.

Is this an all ages event?  Yes, but keep in mind it’s a beer festival.  As the day progresses it’s likely to be less & less kid friendly (duh).

Refund Policy:  We are not responsible for lost, stolen, damaged or destroyed tickets and do not issue refunds once ticket are purchased.  The event will occur rain or shine. If the event is cancelled for any reason you likely won’t need to do a thing if you entered a valid email address. We’ll inform you of the cancellation by email and refund any amount paid.

Should we expect there to be lines at the event?  We fully anticipate lines at the event as many people will likely arrive early.  We will be pre-processing people in lines (checking IDs, ensuring you’re in the proper line, etc.) to ensure the initial admission lines move as quickly as possible.  Within the event the beers/breweries in higher demand will likely have lines but we expect them to move quickly.  While at the event please be courteous to those behind you in line and try to limit conversations with brewery representatives when possible.   Bottom line, if there’s a line that means it’s probably pretty good.

If I leave the event am I allowed to come back in?  VIP (AND SUPER VIP) Ticket holders will be allowed in & out privileges…but why would you wanna leave with all this awesome?

Can I bring my own food or drink to the event?  No, you will not be allowed to bring any food or drink from the outside to the event.

Will there be food or non-alcoholic beverages available? Yes, we will have multiple locations to purchase water and other non-alcoholic beverages along with several food trucks.

Will pets be allowed at the event?  No, but this does not mean we don’t love them.

Will smoking be allowed at the event?   Yes, the event is outdoors and smoking will be allowed.  However, there will be no smoking in the Food Truck area nor within 15 feet of any booths.  You cannot smoke illegal things.

Am I allowed to bring a bag to the event?  A small handbag is permitted but is subject to search upon entry.  We do not discriminate and man purses are also welcome.

Can I bring a lawn chair to the event?  No, you will not be allowed to bring any sort of chair but there will be plenty of seating available!

Will there be a place to check my bag at the event?  Again, no.  We simply don’t have the space or area to safely store bags.  With there being PLENTY of nearby parking we ask that you leave backpacks & larger bags in the car or at home.

How much will parking cost? Plenty of paid and free parking will be available. Parking details coming soon.

What are the public transportation options? Convenient DART Rail access will be available.  Details here.

What will you do with intoxicated patrons?   First, there will be plenty to drink at the festival – please do not pre-party.  If you’re intoxicated upon arrival you will be refused admission and no refund will be given.  We understand it’s a beer festival and people are going to be drinking.  However, out of respect for the other guests (and the law) intoxicated guests may be asked to leave without a refund and will absolutely not be served alcohol.   Drink responsibly.

What kinds of beers will be available at the festival?  In short, only really good to out of this freaking world awesome beers.  The event is limited to Craft & Import Breweries only.  You will not find any giant macro brews at Untapped.  We will have a wide range of options for the hardcore beer geek and the newbie.

Will there be any special beers I can’t buy at the store?  Abso-freaking-lutely.  We’ve aspired to put together the greatest single-day compilation of beers in the history of Texas.  That’s a mouthful, but with all the extremely limited beers, first time releases & event specific brews we’re pretty dang proud of the list.  Also, considering the event is DRAFT BEER ONLY (only festival of its kind in Texas??) there’s a number of brews we’ll be offering that are never available in stores. See full beer list here.

How will the beers be served?  Beer & VIP Admission Ticket Holders will be given a sampling cup in which 2 oz samples will be poured (12 per ticket).  During the VIP Session ONLY 2 oz samples will be served to make sure as many people as possible get tastes of all the rare/unusual brews.  Additional Beer Sampling Cards may be purchased for $5 each at the event.  After 2:30 those cards can be used for a 12 oz pour of any beer available (by anyone over 21 years of age) OR for 12 samples at 2 oz each (ONLY FOR VIP & BEER TICKET HOLDERS- GA TICKET HOLDERS WILL ONLY BE ELIGIBLE TO GET 12 OZ POURS).

Why don’t I get unlimited samples?  By law, we are only allowed to offer 24 oz of beer at any one time.  Considering the rarity (and cost, this ain’t the cheap stuff), $5 for an additional 24 oz – or even 12 oz-  of these brews is a smokin’ deal.

What if I lose or break my sampling glass?  Well then you’re… Nah, just kidding.  BUT, we will have a limited supply of replacement glasses available and you can purchase them at the entry gate for $5 each.
