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.

Best Beers of 2013 by Style

Ok, this is quite a long list, but if you are a true beer snob you will appreciate the information.  You may also appreciate that the results are a compilation of votes from RateBeer members and so are not subject to our bias.  Lakewood Brewing is the only local brewery to make the list.  I apologize for the formatting issues, but free blogs are a bit limiting.

This is RateBeers list of the best beers of 2013 by style. 

The Best Beers By Style Category

 TUES FEB 4, 2014 - The following beers are awarded for their outstanding performance within a beer style category or super style category within which is a grouping of similar or related beer styles.

This is truly all about showcasing an array of the world's finest brewers. Winners in this category are eligible for award certificates in gold, silver and bronze. Congratulations to all.
