Weekend in Dallas: breweries

cocktails @ HIDEHIDE – Technically not a brewery, but they did make lovely cocktails. I loved my Darkwing Duck, and Leandra had the Limon Andaluzia (both good but mine was better). We found a table easily around 7pm, but within 30 minutes it was standing room only around the bar.

Peticolas Brewing Company Taproom – Quite crowded on Saturday afternoon, we barely found a table with space in the back. I tried ‘The Usual’  a cocktail-inspired barleywine with cherries, fresh orange peel, bitters and whiskey soaked American oak chips. Quite unusual, definitely tasted like a cocktail. Leandra got a Black Curtains (imperial stout). We chatted away with our friends while the kids played Battleship and Connect 4.

Noble Rey Brewing – After the last place, this was a much more relaxed space with some great murals on the outside. After trying a few samples, I went with the Eagle Tears (sour) and Leandra ordered the Yub Nub (stout). We sat outside and soaked up the sun.

Pegasus City Brewery – Cool space with a indoor and outdoor seating, plus some arcade games. I enjoyed the Nine Volt (tripel) and Leandra had the Imperial Sixth Floor (imperial porter) and we liked both enough to each get a second!

Braindead Brewing – With an expansive patio and a happy hour prices, Braindead was a nice spot to relax on a sunny day with plenty of people watching. Weirdly, they don’t post prices (even on the printed menus), so you do have to ask… not sure why. I had a sangiovese-barreled beer that had a pleasant funk to it, and Leandra tried Piper at the Gates of Dawn (coffee Scotch ale) and a Hammer of the Gods (Imperial wheat porter).
