Having lived in Houston for the past 15 years, I have learned to despise all things Dallas. I can’t stand the Mavericks, I absolutely hate the Cowboys, while knowing nothing about hockey I still dislike the Stars and even the Rangers irk me (quit pretending you are not a Dallas team).
That being said, I have found the one thing from Dallas I actually like, other than our readers in Dallas who are awesome. Deep Ellum Brewing Company.
I was first introduced to Deep Ellum at the Texas Beer Fest and quickly became a huge fan. Everything these guys brew is incredible, especially their IPA.
This year-round offering is quickly becoming one of my favorites in fact if they ever get it into stores in Houston it might be my favorite…hint, hint. It has a nice copper color with strong hoppy aroma. While starting off slightly sweeter than most IPAs it makes up for that with a strong citrus hop finish. At 7% ABV you can keep enjoying Deep Ellum’s Flagship Brew by having a second glass (or more). In Houston I know you can find this gem at Rockwell Tavern & Grill along with a huge selection of other great craft brews. If you find it anywhere else, please let me know.
Maybe Dallas isn’t so bad after all, but I still hate the Cowboys…Go Texans!
