The perfect trifecta of things that belong at a festival – burgers, brews and blues. Joining forces to provide the most enjoyable evening at the Fort Worth Food and Wine Festival in the most comfortable atmosphere. On top of it all, The Heart of the Ranch venue on Clearfork Main Street may now be my favorite outside venue in Fort Worth. Rustic, charming, calm and peaceful with the tunes from the live music in the foreground. Grab a chair or a rock and just be ready to soak it up.
The event that we most anticipated blew us away. We were immediately relaxed and taken to what felt like the middle of the Texas country, with overhanging lights, a cool brew in hand and the smell of burgers sizzling on the grill. Our feet moving and hips swaying to the beat of the live blues coming from the stage, we could’ve stayed all night. This was an event that you’ll want to spend the entire evening with the closest friends and family and come back year after year. We were already talking about coming back next year before the event was even over! To provide an interesting twist, voting tokens are provided for the best burger and best local brew. Your taste buds have an impact too!
With numerous restaurants participating from Fort Worth, there wasn’t a burger that didn’t get enjoyed. Man, these guys really get creative too. From a PB&J based burger (considering I despise PB&J it was phenomenal) to your typical burger, lettuce, tomato burger, we were pleased, surprised and well fed.
Every great burger must be complimented by an equally superior beer! Whether it is with a full bodied taste, a little light on the corners or even a spicy kick on the back end, it’s the ying to the burgers yang. Luckily for us, this event had a full supply. From our personal favorite, Revolver to new breweries that we’ve yet to discover, we were pretty excited.
And what’s a good beer without some live music. With local artists James Hinkle, Chris Watson Band and the Michael Lee Clemmer Band – everyone was enjoying themselves to the fullest. I mean, how can you not, it’s blues!
What we found at the Burgers, Brews and Blues was the most entertaining, enticing and appetizing event of the FWFWF. When you are talking about coming back the following year before the event is even over, you know it’s got to be that good!
Until next year!
