There are times when you sit down to a meal that absolutely makes you grin. In this age where restaurants are popping up so quickly we hardly have a chance to sit back and explore what the chef is actually doing, but this is not the case at Republic which is situated in North Dallas at 12300 Inwood very near LBJ and across from Jesuit. Here you will find an exciting menu created by an excitable chef. A friend I dined with last night claims she can tell the mood of the chef based on the execution of the meal. If this is true then chef Ray Skradzinski was elated when he created a special menu to pair at this special dinner we enjoyed with a slew of Community beers.
The excitement of the evening was not only the fact that Skaradzinski was on point at the beer dinner, but that it was paired with Community Beer Co., and we were able to dine with the owner of Community, Kevin Carr and have each course of brews thoughtfully explained by Ashley Kelly, the Community sales associate who is extremely passionate about her beers.

So, no hops no beer, right? Continue reading

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
