What to drink and where to drink it
Since you can't hit every Dallas Beer Week event without being forced by the DPD to reacquaint yourself with how to use a pay phone, we've selected a quartet of happenings that especially merit your woozy attention
Jack Mac's Swill & Grill's Local Beer Dinner (Tomorrow): The Texas craft-paired four-courser stretches from DEBC Rye Pils & TX goat cheese w/ lime risotto, to a dessert as top secret as the planned 2014 sequel to the Val Kilmer classic (didn't hear about that? exactly)
Four Corners' First Tour (Saturday): The Trinity Groves brewery's actually a converted big-rig garage that's got a built in loft-stage for live music, plenty of parking for food trucks, and of course, plenty of All Day ale, which, ironically, doesn't start pouring 'til 1p.
DEBC's First Anniversary Tour (Saturday): DEBC's official birthday party features tappings of favorites (Dreamcrusher, Darkest Hour, Wealth & Taste...) and the debut of their anniversary brew, Pollinator, an oak-aged honey dopplebock on a mission to destroy Sarah Connor's flower bed.
Ten Bells Tavern's Special Pairing Menu (All Week): The OC's Brit-pub's trotting out a trio of locally-paired menu items, like Velvet Hammer & a corned beef/saurkraut/marble rye 'wich, Cedar Creek Scruffy's Smoked Alt w/ bangers & mash and caramelized onion jus, and Southern Star Buried Hatchet Stout w/ glazed short ribs -- if that's not enough for you, call your lawyer.
