Lakewood Growler To Open Soon

growlerby Steven Doyle

The local beer world is expanding at an incredible rate. We just received word that a new growler station is to open in Dallas at 6448 E Mockingbird. This is the former Kindred Spirits location near Abrams Road. The signage touts 36 Texas taps, something that is always a welcome addition to the neighborhood. The growler station will have less than 25 seats with a focus on fill and go business says the owner, Dale Czech.  Look for more information to filter soon. Until then we can enjoy the test pattern-esque website.

Bathtubs to Brewmaster: Firewheel Brewing Company

DSC00160by Hollie Dorethy

Brad Perkinson at the new FireWheel Brewing Company based in Rowlett, Texas, is taking the beer world on full force.  I caught up with him at the new Brix Bar and Grill in Plano.  After finishing the hand-made White Trash burger (which consists of a hand formed patty tossed in wing sauce, covered in bacon and jalapenos, then all topped with a fried egg) he was ready to chat.  Beer in hand, we headed outside to the spacious corner patio to tell me his story.   He is immediately the fun loving beer guy that everyone wants to hang out with all hours of the night.  I was especially impressed with his story of how he even stumbled into the beer industry itself.    Continue reading

5 Food Trends We Enjoyed In 2012

Trends are difficult to predict, at best. Soon we will publish a list of food trends that we might expect to see in Dallas for 2013, but today we honor several we enjoyed in 2012. It seems odd at times that many chefs and restaurateurs grab onto the same ideas, but many of the trends we see in Dallas were perhaps hot numbers on either coast several years ago. I suppose we like to play it safe on the third coast.

Oysters! This year we stared down the happy end of many shells in the Dallas area. Recently Jon Alexis opened his second seafood market, the TJ’s located on Oak Lawn, and has since brought on a growing crowd Sunday’s where he offers dollar oysters. These aren’t week old bivalves; Alexis ships in oysters daily along with all of his seafood selections. Instead he likes the idea of throwing a Sunday night industry party that celebrates with half priced fish tacos and a growing selection of really awesome oysters for a buck each.  Continue reading
