Wild Acre Brewing Beer Tasting and "Thunder Hug" Taproom Release
Welcome to all. Let's meet for a casual and easy gathering at a fun place! They are releasing their whiskey barrel aged Imperial Stout "Thunder Hug" on Saturday, Jan. 20th. This beer hits you like booming thunder with a 13.7% ABV, and then makes you feel nice and warm inside like getting a hug from your loving mother with its hints of whiskey from the barrels it was aged in for over a year. They will be giving out exclusive glassware, so get there early! The brewery is located in the former Ranch Style Beans industrial complex behind The T (Fort Worth Transportation Authority) office headquarters. They have a nice beer garden and an award-winning tasting room. It's not crowded, there are no lines to wait in and parking is just outside the entrance. The servers are friendly and welcoming. There is a nice selection of craft beer. It's pet-friendly! New members, please know that we are a friendly bunch and you will be comfortable and welcomed here! "I guarantee it!" -gs Last call is at 5:45 pm (serving until perhaps until 6 pm). We can stay after-hours on the patio. $15 tasting fee allows 4, 16 oz. pours and a commemorative glass (Thunder Hug 13.7 % ABV will be a half-pour). Don't want four beers? Perhaps split the fee with someone who wants less. Possible $20 fee this time - will update when they advise. Non-beer-drinkers and designated drivers don't have to pay. They only serve beer. We can bring in our own food. Heim Barbecue food truck will be on-site. Award winning barbecue. This is a family-friendly and pet-friendly event. Invite a guest to join us!

    What we're about

    Public Group

    Let's change the name of our group to what is has become: people coming together in fellowship and friendship and having fun. Formally a singles group that wanted to specialize in sailing, we found something a lot more special. We have a common affinity for non-drama and an easy-going demeanor.

    We strive to provide an atmosphere of friendly fellowship. This group is for everyone: singles, marrieds, couples.

    We appreciate your input on planning activities of interest.

    This group was once the original singles' sailing Meetup Group in the DFW Metroplex, founded in 2009. It's an independent nonprofit organization, organized under the auspices of Meetup.com. Our name was created in 1988 by the Wendell Chen consortium.
