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.

June is Pints for Prostates Month at the Flying Saucers

Flying Saucer Draught Emporium Teams Up With Pints for Prostates to Send Two Lucky Guests on European Beer Tour to Oktoberfest

DALLAS, Texas, June 1, 2016 – For the fifth year, Flying Saucer Draught Emporium is teaming up with Pints for Prostates Inc. during a four-city “European Beer Tour” promotion designed to reach men through the universal language of beer. The 16-location beer pub will generate prostate cancer awareness from June 1 to 29 that will culminate in a drawing for a beer trip for two to the Czech Republic and Germany (Prague, Bamberg, Eck and Munich) for Oktoberfest.

Each Wednesday as part of its popular “Brewery Night,” Flying Saucer will feature a different classic European beer with the brand’s signature logo glassware. At 7 p.m., 144 people at each location will be able to get the glass of the week and a pour of the featured beer for a great price, with proceeds benefiting Pints for Prostates. Each glass comes with a raffle ticket for a drawing for the European Beer Tour taking place from Sept. 21 to Oct. 1, 2016.

The total value of the trip for two is estimated at $9,000. The drawing will be held in early July at Flying Saucer’s Charlotte, North Carolina, location.

About Pints for Prostates
Pints for Prostates reaches men through the universal language of beer to encourage them to take charge of their health. The group was founded by prostate cancer survivor and beer writer Rick Lyke in 2008. The grassroots effort raises awareness among men about the importance of regular health screenings and PSA testing by making appearances at beer festivals, social networking and pro bono advertising.

Beer was founded in 1998 to offer serious beer people the opportunity to travel to the world’s best beer destinations with other people who love great beer. Beer and travel, travel and beer — these are two of our favorite things. Both, in our estimation, are worth a fair amount of life’s energy. Our goal, and our very reason for existing, is to take our travelers the best beer destinations, drink, taste and enjoy the best beers, meet the beer-loving people of the countries we visit, and explore the history, culture, art and architecture of the interesting places where beer “grew up”. To do this we stay in nice, well-located hotels, eat at great restaurants that emphasize beer in their fare, and visit breweries, brew pubs, cafes, and museums that enhance our understanding and appreciation of beer and its rich history and culture.
