There have been so many acts of kindness from the North Texas citizens on the heels of the terrible disaster we incurred this week. The tornado tore a giant swath through many homes, leaving devastation unlike we have have seen in years. We will continue to post related stories to help get the good word out, be it a fundraiser, a free meal for responders and those in need, or whatever makes sense.
In keep with that, we have this offer from Lakewood Brewing Company: Continue reading
This September, Lakewood Brewing Company will release a “Seduction Series” favorite, French Quarter Temptress on draft, and as promised, in bottles for the first time ever. Capturing the spirit and attitude of New Orleans, French Quarter Temptress possesses the boldness of barrel-aged coffee and chicory within the incredibly smooth 9.1 percent ABV Imperial Milk Stout.
Lakewood will once again partner with Kevin and Marta Sprague at Noble Coyote Coffee Roasters in East Dallas, creating the perfect character and tasting notes of French Quarter Temptress. Continue reading
Drawing inspiration from Belgian and local mythologies, Lakewood Brewing Company every so often releases another limited batch brew in its ever-popular Legendary Series. On June 1, Lakewood will introduce its sixth release in the series, a very personal creation by Lakewood’s founder Wim Bens, that pays homage to the Belgian legend of Saint Dymphna expressed through the sweet, complex characteristic of a Belgian-style Tripel brewed with linden flowers.
Saint Dymphna will be featured on tap at the Lakewood Taproom during taproom hours beginning on Saturday, May 30. Come by and taste the goodness before it hits the market. Beginning June 1, the beer will be available on draft at local bars and restaurants across DFW and in 22 ounce bottles in retail stores that carry Lakewood beers. Continue reading

Ahh, St. Patrick’s Day. There are fewer days on the calendar year that are more perfectly suited for enjoying a beer. New Year’s, your birthday and Fourth of July come to mind as better days but St. Pat’s is definitely in those rankings if not at the top of the list. While there were quite a few beers drank on this day, none being green because I don’t drink poor beer that requires green coloring, the one that definitely stands out is Lakewood Brewing Company’s Antigoon’s Revenge.
Lakewood Brewing Company has a focus on Belgian style beers and Antigoon’s Revenge is no exception to this rule. Antigoon’s Revenge is a limited release Belgian-style golden ale from their Legendary Series. Most Belgian ales are very light in hop flavor and can be slightly sweet or spicy depending on the malts and yeast used in the brewing process. The Belgian ales that I have personally tasted have a slight spicy flavor from the yeast strains used. Continue reading

Goodfriend Beer Garden & Burger House partners with Lakewood Brewing Co. and Puro Verde Tequila for “¡Ay Dios Amigos!” to release very special beers aged in Puro Verde barrels on Sunday, February 23, 2014. Hosting an all-day event, goodfriend will be the only place to get this world premiere beer. Live music will begin at 3pm featuring Hazardous Dukes, Psycho Pony, and Hell Texas.
This event is a year in the making. Carlos Bell, the general manager at Goodfriend, asked Trey Baumgarner, the owner of Puro Verde Tequila, for four of their Añejo Tequila barrels for Lakewood Brewing Co. Along with Bell, Matt Tobin, Josh Yingling from Goodfriend and Craig Reeves from Puro Verde Tequila delivered the barrels to Wim Bens from Lakewood Brewing Co. to begin the aging process. Two barrels of Lakewood Lager (Vienna-style Lager) and 2 barrels of La Dame Du Lac (Bierre de Garde), part of the Lakewood Legendary Series were aged in the Tequila barrels for nine months. A couple of months ago, all parties involved came together for a taste test. Continue reading

Last night I popped in to Trinity Groves to see how the opening night at LUCK (Local Urban Craft Kitchen) was going. I was able to chat up the owners and they were all pleasantly happy with the first night turn out, which they said was largely made up of people from around the neighborhood. I would assume these people enjoying large slabs of pot roast and those delicious beirocks were most likely from the northern most sections of Oak Cliff.
As I made my way to the bar to enjoy a few choice selections from the tap, I was pleased to be informed that all the beers were a mere $5. This is the same pricing scheme that Union Bear adopted early on, but has since abandoned that most excellent offering. These are the same delicious beers seen across the city selling for up to $9 a pint. Continue reading
