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.

'Tis the Season for Modano (and hocky stuff)!
Hockey season has started once again, and what better way to get in the Hockey mood than having a Dallas Stars Legend name on your tap wall! There are three ways to do this: 561 or Crazy No. 9 on tap....or our new release of
Mike Modano's 561 on Tap or in a Can
Mike Modano’s 561 Kolsch-style beer is a clean, crisp, yet deceptively complex brew which features a delicate balance between soft malt and a subtle fruity hoppiness.
Crafted to commemorate Mike’s record career goals for US-born hockey players, 561 showcases German pilsner malt, noble hops, and a meticulous fermentation regimen. The 561 experience is smooth, crisp and wonderfully refreshing—a lighter beer, without the compromise. 4.7% ABV
IBU: 25 IBUs
Grain: Pilsner Malt with a small dose of Wheat
Hops: GR Perle and GR Tettnang
Availability: Year Round

Mike Modano's Crazy No. 9
Mike Modano's Crazy No. 9 is part of our Season of Fear scheduled releases.
This very limited (less than 20 BBLs were made) beer takes all the raw ingredients we use for Mike Modano's 561 but is brewed with Crazy Water (from the Crazy Water Company in Mineral Wells, TX) in conjunction with their annual Crazy Water Festival.
This gives a new flavor profile to our already popular 561.
And if you're wondering why this is a Season of Fear release - you obviously weren't an NHL Goalie in the 1990's.
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.
