We love to eat and we love great beers. Let us share with you our views on what Dallas has to offer in fine (and not so fine) dining and fine beers.
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.

Ah, Halloween, a good honest 'holiday'. It's the "Give me some candy or mess with me, I don't care" holiday. It's also become a "dress up and get wasted" holiday. Here are a couple of brewery related events where you can celebrate the latter:
It’s almost here. As always, the beer is the headline, but there are plenty of other great reasons to show up. Here are details on both!
What’s the deal with new beers? Two new Martin House beers: the “Cask o’ Latern” (Pretzel Stout with pumpkin & fall spices) and a “Blood Beer” (A high-gravity Gateway XPA with a little something special for color and kick). Guest brewers Noble Rey Brewing Co, Zio Carlo Brewpub, Bearded Eel, and The Other Baldwin Brothers will be there with their latest creations.
Get there early because the cool stuff will go fast.
What’s the format for serving the beer?
All drinkers will receive an 8-ounce commemorative taster glass. Roam the brewery and get it filled with whatever looks good – you’ll have plenty of choices and five hours to explore.
How does the costume contest work?
Our mobile panel of judges will be on the prowl looking for the best costumes. We’ll announce the winners at 4:00. Prizes are pretty rad: 1st place, 2 cases of beer, 2nd place, Tshirt/Hat/5 tour passes, 3rd place 5 tour passes.
Are kids allowed?
Yep, bring the little gremlins out; we’ll have candy available for them!
How does “Trick or Eat” work?
You can do a la carte sampling tickets (5 for $5) with 6 of Fort Worth finest food/dessert/snack vendors, or just cut to the chase and get a full serving. Vendors are Tail Feathers Wing Wagon, Melt Ice Creams, Crow Bros, Hunger Struck, Steel City Pops, and More Puffcorn Please.
And the music?
Gary Lee Cox goes on at 12:00 and The Roomsounds play from 2:30 to 4:30
How much does all this awesomeness cost?
Will this event happen if it’s bad weather?
Yes, unless a sharknado hits, and even then it may happen.
I am lucky enough to have a group of good friends who share my passion for great beers and inspired dining. My goal is to entice you into sampling something different, something uncommon, something outside the box. Join us in the neverending search for the perfect beer and the perfect meal.
