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.

New Dallas Brewery Alert: The Texas Ale Project

We have heard a few whispers about a new brewery in town so we asked Brent Thompson, owner and brewer of the Texas Ale Project for a bit of background.  He kindly responded to our request as follows:
"Here is a little info on us!

Texas Ale Project is the first brewery to be built from the ground up in the City of Dallas since the late 1800s. That’s over 120 years, folks. We have worked very hard to get where we are today, and we are proud to introduce our ales to you.
Great beer just doesn’t happen, it takes time…Science and history have taught us a lot about creating beer. In fact, we’re on a mission to refine some of the greatest American craft beer traditions that have been influenced by the last 8,000 years of brewing culture. Thoughtfulness, dedication and pure excitement of handcrafting ales are the reasons Texas Ale Project exists today.
What to expect from T.A.P.?
  • An all-out true American craft beer experience.
  • We believe in multi-step mashing. Our mastery of this tried and true brewing methodology combined with a thoughtful selection of the highest quality ingredients enable us to deliver well-balanced beer from start to finish.  
  • Oh… and expect a lil’ WTF.

     Think Texas, Drink Texas!"
They are already brewing their first beers the Fire Ant Funeral, a traditional American Amber Ale and Naked Truth, a dry hopped American Wheat Ale.  The Amber uses 7 different malts to build a rich, complex brew while the Wheat is a light, full bodied brew.  The goal is to make flavorful, easy drinking ales, according to Thompson.

They expect to have the T.A.P. Room at the brewery open to the public on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, in December or January.  While their website is not yet ready to can follow their progress at Texas Ale Project on Facebook.  We look forward to trying and reviewing their beers and wish them luck in their endeavor.  Cheers - Bon
