The day has arrived for White Rock Alehouse & Brewery, a new brewpub bringing craft beers and great food to the community of Lakewood and beyond.

Founders Dave Kirk and Greg Nixon are friends and entrepreneurs with a love of the craft beer movement who created their concept to fill a gap in the market. They’ve witnessed the craft beer world evolving around the country and in Dallas, too, with breweries opening locally – but with few options in the stretch between East Dallas and Garland.

Tsunami of Beer Kills Nine

by Steven Doyle

A few years back we discussed the tragic and curious Boston Molasses Flood  that killed 21 and injured over 150, demolishing buildings and drowning livestock, causing millions of dollars in damages. There was another industrial accident that wreaked havoc on a city, killing many and causing damage that is equally as curious.

Like all tragic stories such as these a certain element of hubris rides high, not too unlike the massive container of molasses that exploded in Boston all those years ago, or even the supposedly unsinkable Titanic.    Continue reading

Taste A Beer Flavored Jelly Belly

blly beerby Steven Doyle

What is gluten free, fat free, vegetarian friendly, kosher, peanut free and non-alcoholic but tastes like a draft beer? The latest Jelly Belly flavor. The company unveiled the new flavor at the Fancy Food Show in San Francisco recently, and claim it “tastes like your favorite draft beer”. I am so pleased that the new flavor tastes like Peticolas Velvet Hammer, but how did they know?

Anyway, you can purchase online for now at their website. Cost is $8.99 a pound (currently on sale for less) and you get about 400 beans to a bag. That is about what the cost of a really good craft beer would set you back locally. Consider this gateway booze. You know, for kids.
