The following press release is courtesy of Four Corners Brewing Company. Folks often ask if we’ve covered this or that local Dallas brewery, so here’s something about one of them. I’ve not tried La Chingona Double IPA yet, but it looks like Four Corners is going on the list to check out. Also, this music festival they’re starting sounds really cool. It’s coming up on Saturday, March 14.
DALLAS (Feb. 6, 2020) – Four Corners Brewing Co. or ¡FCBC!, a Dallas-based craft brewery featuring lotería-style branding, announced its inaugural ChingonX music festival. The festival celebrates the year-round release of the brewing company’s La Chingona Double IPA and features a heavy hand of chingonas y chingones expressing their talent through music, art and food. ChingonX will be held Saturday, March 14, at the Four Corners Brewing Co. brewery located at 1311 S. Ervay St. in The Cedars neighborhood of Dallas.
“We are constantly inspired by the creative forces within our bicultural community,” said Four Corners Brewing Co. co-founder George Esquivel. “Like us, many are drawing from their traditional cultural roots and expressing their bicultural experience in unique and innovative ways. This year, ChingonX will highlight some amazing women of fortitude, also known as chingonas. We intend ChingonX to be a way for people to engage with our featured creatives versus simply being a talent showcase. Fun with a purpose – that’s ChingonX.”
The ChingonX festival lineup includes alternative rhythm and blues artist Girl Ultra from Mexico City; Columbian-raised, New York-based electropop band Salt Cathedral; and dreamy retro synthpop band and local favorites Luna Luna. The artists will also be joined by a live episode taping of popular Latinx podcast De Colores Radio. Attendees will also have the unique opportunity to try 10 special limited-release brews including three beer blends in collaboration with each artist. Limited release beers will be available on tap exclusively during the festival.
Beyond the music, ChingonX will feature a curated vendor market and an all-women entrepreneurship panel, Convos Con Chingonas. The Convos Con Chingonas panel, moderated by Four Corner Brewing Co.’s social media coordinator Trina-Jo Pardo, will offer open and authentic viewpoints on what it takes to be successful in today’s business world. The esteemed panel participants are pillars in the Dallas community who are eager to empower, educate and connect other women through their entrepreneurial journeys. Topics will include strategies that promote business success, balancing finances, helpful resources and the power of community.
Gates will open at 2 p.m. March 14 with the Convos Con Chingonas panel scheduled to begin at 3 p.m. Luna Luna will take to the stage at 6:30 p.m., followed by Salt Cathedral. Girl Ultra will close out the event with her 9 p.m. set. Tickets are on sale for $10 in advance at https://chingonxfestival.splashthat.com/ and $15 the day of the show. A large portion of the proceeds will benefit WiNGS and the North Texas Dream Team, two Dallas nonprofits who advocate for women and minority communities.
