Much has been rightfully made about the rapidly increasing number of breweries Dallas now has to offer. A positive correlation to the local brewery boom is the wealth of top-notch brewpubs and beer-centric bars dotting not only the typical trendy locales like Greenville Avenue or Deep Ellum, but that of the sprawling Ikea-loving suburbs also.
1 Oak Street Drafthouse
In its own right, Denton is experiencing a beer-soaked renaissance, and this immaculately restored historic house and its fine selection of craft beers and cocktails is proof.
2 The Holy Grail Pub
This Plano gem doesn’t have the largest tap selection, but it’s an expertly curated one with brews that can satisfy nerds and newbs alike.
3 Lone Star Taps & Caps
Owned by the folks behind Lone Star Beverages and the finest bottle shop in town, this 50-tap growler filling station was the first of its kind in the northern ‘burbs and is worth the trip for its expert assortment.
4 Jack Mac’s Swill & Grill
Tucked away in a nondescript North Dallas neighborhood, there’s more than the addictive namesake mac n’ cheese to look for here.
5 Ron’s Place
This cozy Addison spot is proof not all strip-centers are created equal. The high-quality 32 draft selection is almost as impressive as the massive antique beer can collection housed inside.
