This week on craveRADIO you will hear the show we produced at Kent Rathbun’s BBQ Workshop at his catering facility, KB Woodfire Grill in Plano.  The show was fast paced with more guests than we normally host including Kent Rathbun and KB catering chef Jeff Qualls who is a CIA graduate and has worked at some very notable kitchen.

In addition to the chefs we also chatted up representatives from The Green Egg, that marvelous grill that can cook virtually anything outdoors. We also visited with Four Corner’s Brewing Company owner George Esquivel who was supplying beer for the evening. Esquivel talks about the beer they are currently brewing and the new brew pub that premiers this weekend in Trinity Groves.    Continue reading

Cook Hall and Four Corners Brewing Co

Cook-Hallby Andrew Chalk

Cook Hall, the gastropub at the W Hotel in Dallas, held their second beer dinner last week. Four Corners Brewing Company was the showcased brewery and I was fortunate to be an invited media guest.

You could almost hand-deliver Four Corners beers to Cook hall. The brewery is at Trinity Groves on the west end of Santiago Calatrava’s glorious bridge over the Trinity River.         Continue reading

Who Shall Go Into Kitchen LTO First

Chef Matt Redick with his Fried Shrimp with Brown Gravy Beurre Blanc and Cheddar Biscuitby Andrew Chalk

That was the question facing Dallas diners last night at a sell out event at Trinity Groves. Kitchen LTO is a (oxymoron ahead) “permanent  pop-up restaurant”. The site, the wine and beer list, and the staff will all be permanent (except that the staff will age at the same rate as they would anywhere else…).  The chef and the restaurant design will change every four months. The LTO in the name stands for “Limited Time Offer” (my guess, “long-term operation”, turned out to be way off). This macabre, but rather brilliant idea is the brainchild of Casie Caldwell, founder and owner of Greenz, the salad chain where they teach spelling.   Continue reading

Four Corners Brewing Company Is Open For Business Q&A

by Steven Doyle

Another brewery has officially gone online in the Dallas area, this time from the Trinity Grove sec0tion of West Dallas which can be found just across the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge at 423 Singleton. The brewery will be strictly sold in brew pubs and kegged, but later will adopt another system which they anticipate as an aluminum bottle. Common Table cracked the first keg of Four Corners earlier this week, and a debut party was hosted at Good Friend last night.

The brewery is hosting a tour this weekend Saturday, November 17, 2012 from 12:30pm to 3:30pm, but that tour is already sold out.

We had a chance to speak to a pair of the owners; there are four members of this team in all thus the Four Corners. Here is a conversation with George Esquivel and brew master John Sims.   Continue reading

A Visit To Four Corners Brewing Company

by Steven Doyle

The brew news is at a fever pitch this week. Today I was on an exclusive tour through the Trinity Groves and decided to check out the progress of the soon to open Four Corners Brewing Company where I found owner John Sims hard at work cleaning kegs and otherwise waiting for bureaucracy to lend its hand at finalizing his legal permits to operate and produce his first batch of beer at 423 Singleton.

When I entered the brewery that is still under construction I met up with Sims who happened to be chatting with Franconia Brewery owner, Dennis Wehrmann.             Continue reading
