chiliby Steven Doyle

Although this has been an extremely mild winter in North Texas (so far), it is still the best time of year to enjoy a soothing bowl of spicy brick red chili. Look for the first chili cook-off of what the organizers trust will be an annual event in Trinity Groves at the 3015 event complex February 8, 2015 from noon to 5pm. Although not a sanctioned event, the rules are just as stiff with on-site cooking and a minimum of four gallons required for both a people’s choice and a judges panel award.   Continue reading

As NTX Beer week continues, last night was definitely a gem in its hat as two beloved breweries came together and made magic happen along with the boys at LUCK in Trinity Groves.

The dinner was nothing short of breath taking, as LUCK understands beer and pairings extremely well. Each course met with a different beer, culminating to a collaborative brew of both Rahr and Lakewoods making.  The meeting of beer minds is nothing particularly new to this industry, but it is always a little special when two local breweries, this time one from Dallas the other Fort Worth, come together and make a special kind of love. This particular brew is a Belgian-style dubbel. Balanced, smooth and malty sweet with a hint of spice from the Belgian yeast.   Continue reading
