Dallas has few diversions other than eating, drinking and shopping.....and shopping does not interest us.
So we spend our time hopping from restaurant to restaurant and to every pub that we can find in search of the perfect meal and the perfect beer.

We randomly review restaurants and bars, dishes and beers at whim and give our brutally honest opinions of our findings. And while we concentrate on Dallas, we travel far and wide to sample cuisine from all regions of the country and beyond.

World Beer Company

The Bottle Shop

Man, I feel like having a beer, but really don't feel like dealing with twits.  Where would I go to try a new beer and geek out and chat about beers in a sedate, pressure free venue?  Lower Greenville.  "The Libertine?"  Nope.  Across the street, at the Bottle Shop.  "You said this was about the World Beer Company".  I did, and it is.  "It is what"?  It is both.  "I hate when you do this crap.  Which is it and quit messing with me".  The name of the business is the World Beer Company, which is the corporate name and the online store, the store/bar itself on Greenville is the Bottle Shop.  But that is irrelevant, voice in my head....quit interrupting my flow.  What is important is found inside.

You want a bottle of something different to take home and enjoy?  This is the place.  You want to enjoy a glass of tasty brew in a quiet, no pressure atmosphere?  This is the place.  You want a growler of draft beer to take home and guzzle while you watch the Final Four?  This is the place.  You want a gift basket to give to your beer snob friend on his birthday (hint, hint)?  This is the place.  You want to be hit up for money on the patio out front by a crack head while you enjoy a beer on a beautiful spring day?  Unfortunately this is the place for that, too ... but this is Greenville after all.  Don't panic, the staff will chase them away with a broom.

I really love this place.  I love the staff.  I love the selection (over 500 beers).  I love the atmosphere.  You should come and love it. too.
