Lakewood Brewing Company is celebrating nine years of awesome craft beer with live music, food trucks, and 32 beers on tap and to go, along with other attractions this Saturday. This year’s event, back after a year hiatus due to COVID, will include release of Lakewood’s anniversary brew, Lion’s Share IX, a Belgian Golden Strong that has been aged in fine Napa Valley Cabernet Barrels that will be available to go and to sample. Lakewood’s beer garden will feature live music all day, namely Jake Quillin from 3 to 5 p.m. as well as Ryan Berg and the Velvet Ears from 6 to 9 p.m. Food trucks from Medellin Tacos and Not Just Q will also be on-hand all day serving amazing grub.

Founded in 2012 by Belgian native Wim Bens, Lakewood Brewing Company was founded in East Dallas. Having discovered home brewing and a passion for craft beers, Bens applied to the American Brewer’s Guild and graduated, shifting his career to opening the widely popular production brewery. Since selling their first keg on August 4, 2012 and producing 11 different styles of beer in its first year, Lakewood has grown today to more than 20 employees and an expanded capacity, which includes year-round and seasonal line-ups sold statewide, a thriving taproom and beer garden.
