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.

Fourth Course - Dirty Bastard paired with a Henry's peanut butter ice cream, caramel dust and chocolate covered pretzel - served as a Beer Float

Beer Details:

CURMUDGEON - 9.8% abv / 50 ibus
Think classic seafaring ports, local pubs and weathered old fishermen. This old ale is brewed with molasses and an insane focus on the malt bill, then oak-aged. The result is a strong, rich, malty delight that’s deceptively smooth and drinkable.

ALL DAY IPA - 4.7% abv / 42 ibus
The #1 selling session ale in America finishes with citrus/grapefruit. The beer you’ve been waiting for. Keeps your taste satisfied while keeping your senses sharp. An all-day IPA naturally brewed with a complex array of malts, grains and hops. Balanced for optimal aromatics and a clean finish. The perfect reward for an honest day’s work and the ultimate companion to celebrate life’s simple pleasures.

SUMATRA MOUNTAIN BROWN - 9% abv / 40 ibus
Think "cold brewed sumatra coffee" when you try this. This bold brown ale gets its body from a team of malts, including caramel malt for sweetness, flaked barley for dense foam, a bit of chocolate malt & more. Rich Sumatra coffee is added in.

DIRTY BASTARD - 8.5% abv / 50 ibus
The #1 selling scotch-style ale in America brings a 7 grain malt bill to tantalize your tongue. So good it’s almost wrong. Dark ruby in color and brewed with seven varieties of imported malts. Complex in finish, with hints of smoke and peat, paired with a malty richness and a right hook of hop power to give it the bad attitude that a beer named Dirty Bastard has to live up to. Ain’t for the wee lads.

SURPRISE BEER - well, can't tell ya that, now, can I?
