Cedar Creek’s Dankosaurus IPA

cedar creekby Jordan Burke

Drinking beer is a favorite hobby of mine.  Dankosaurus I.P.A., by Cedar Creek Brewery, is hands down my favorite beer at the moment.  Now I cannot say I enjoy all I.P.A.’s, but this one has helped open my mind to a whole new world of beer.  That deep dank smell with citrus and pine flavor always remind me of my other favorite “hobby”.  Truly a must try for all the west coast style I.P.A. fans.  I can remember the first time I sampled this monster.  Continue reading

Eat Me: Monte Cristo at Vickery Park

monte cristoby Steven Doyle

When I think of the tavern on Henderson, Vickery Park, I think about this marvelous craft beer selection and late night tacos. The tacos are stored steaming in an ice chest behind the bar, and are always pretty damned good. They will also have burritos and a grilled cheese sandwich made with jalapeño havarti, smoked gouda and cheddar cheeses, melted in between toasted Texas toast. You may add bacon, jalapenos or avocado for a bit more cash, but otherwise this a great late night option.    Continue reading

We Dig The Dugg Burger

DSC07191by Steven Doyle

Burgermania continues to thrive in Dallas as more restaurants open that feature burgers and more burgers.The latest we tried is one called Dugg Burger which is located on Garland Road in Casa Linda. What makes the Dugg Burger unique is not only the process, but the high quality ingredients and the simple pricing scheme.

First for the process. It is a bit unusual, but definitely what makes the Dugg unique. The moment you walk in the door they fire a burger patty. They already know you will have a burger because that is all they serve. Then they take a fresh Village Baking Company bun (our favorite) and hollow out the top inside with a patented auger. Never fear, nothing is wasted, and they use the cored bun portion to make bread pudding. That comes later. The bun is then buttered and set on another special tool they had created to fir the augured portion of the bun so the inside gets fully browned and crisp.   Continue reading

Joel Harrington Knocking Out Home Runs At Bolsa

DSC07214by Steven Doyle

This week we checked in at Bolsa to visit with the new executive chef Joel Harrington who just returned from a three year gig as kitchen director at Red Rooster in New York. You may recall Harrington from his Dallas past where he served as chef de cuisine at Fearing’s, and exec chef at Stephan Pyles and Charlie Palmer’s. Bringing Harrington back from New York was a major coup for Bolsa as the chef has some major skills as evidenced by his new menu at the Oak Cliff restaurant.   Continue reading

Get Ready For Session Beers, Dallas

communityby Mark Hooper

Summer is right around the corner, which means “Sunday Funday” will be in full swing, and what better way to enjoy a long day by the pool with family and friends than with a delicious DFW craft beer in your hand?  I’m a hop head myself, and it doesn’t take much for me to catch that buzz we all seek on our days off, which is why the new craze of session IPA’s have been my go-to recently. Thanks to this style’s low alcohol percentage, we can all get our hop fix on and not have to throw in the towel after enjoying a few.   Continue reading
