A Trip To Square Burger In McKinney

by Steven Doyle

What do you do with a chef who graduated from the California Culinary Academy, worked at Spago, Abacus, Five Sixty and numerous other spots of similar caliber? Some might say have the chef move to McKinney and open a café that sells  great burgers and beer. That is the case with chef Craig Brundege who operates Square Burger in McKinney.

Square Burger has been running strong for over four years offering their power-house line up of great burgers and daily specials that will often include fresh fish and pastas. But what drives us 30 miles up I75 to downtown McKinney from the inner-workings of Dallas are those haunting burgers.   Continue reading

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

A Lucky Adventure In Beer

luckby Ned Steel

I didn’t want to go.  I didn’t fancy myself as much of a “people person”.  I mean don’t get me wrong, it’s not like I was anti-social or anything but talking to complete strangers about something, even if I was passionate about the subject, was a foreign concept to me.  But I had been asked by a friend to go.  Someone I respected.  Someone that was counting on me to make some new friends.

I drove past the small shop twice before realizing where it was, but that was probably in part because I was looking for a place called Stubby’s rather than what was written up on the marquee, “Texas Brewing Inc.”.  After gathering myself, I nervously made my way inside, looked around the small room filled with tables, beer, and people.  People with anxious eager faces.  I’m not sure what it was that made my switch turn on.  Maybe it was the looks on those faces… eager to please.  Maybe it was that they looked more nervous than I was.  Whatever it was, I felt comfortable in my own skin and caught the eye of one of the fellows in the corner.   Continue reading

Rabbit Hole Brewing Releases Tweedle Yum

Rabbit Hole’s Tweedleyum, a Hefeweizen made with strawberries, combines the natural banana esters derived from an authentic German Hefeweizen yeast with 100% natural strawberry puree to create a slightly sweet, easy drinking fruit beer. The refreshing nature of the fruit combinations in this new seasonal promises to be something on which even Tweedledum and Tweedledee can agree.   Continue reading
