Celebrate Drink Up Month with us
FTW-DrinkUp
Sip sip hooray. | Graphic by FTWtoday
If you can sip it, we want to celebrate it. We’re bringing back Drink Up, an initiative that spotlights local beverages and companies around Fort Worth.

The best part? This year, we’re celebrating the entire month of July.

🍻 What is Drink Up Month?

Think: A celebration of the people and places that contribute to Fort Worth’s growing beverage scene.

This might look like a roundup of summer drinks, a chance to vote for your favorite beverage, or special games to play around the city.

🥂 How to participate

We like to think this is a two-way street. There are two ways to participate in Drink Up Month: As a maker and a consumer.

For our local breweries, coffee roasters, and everything in between — we want you to get involved. Email us to chat about collaborating during Drink Up Month.

For our beverage-loving readers, we’re pouring the matter into your hands. Tell us what beverage-related content sparks your interest by clicking the button below.
