I found this place using Beerfly, and was suprised it was so close to our hotel. Stopped in on a Friday afternoon, and the place was basically empty. There may have been 5 other people in the hour I was there. Very calm and inviting atmosphere, dark lighting with lots of wood. Small patio in front, and larger garden with picnic tables in the back. Some older beer advertising and posters, tastefully done.
Large selection of draft and bottles, with a beer menu that looks to be updated weekly - very nice touch - as well as chalk boards with any brand new selections. I went with a Dogfish Head Punkin' and was offered a Live Oak when asked for something local. Was offered a taster to make sure I would be happy with my choice.
The beers I had seemed fresh and proper temperature, poured with a nice head, also looked like a large selection of glassware for serving other special beers (I got standard pints).
Service was good and reasonably helpful. Bartender offered suggestions to another couple from Australia who wanted a Fosters. For me the selection blows away anything I have locally, though I am sure there are other places with the same or better choice. There was a good range of local micros, imports and lots of styles to choose from. Unfortunatley, I didn't have time for a bite, but next time I will try some food.
$4.75 for a pint is reasonable, if not cheap (compared to what I am used to) for a local micro brew.
I will be back the next time I am in town. (1,479 characters)

This place is absolutely a craft beer lover's dream come true. The atmosphere is amazing, dark lighting, dark lacquered wood, warm and lively company downstairs and quieter more relaxed atmosphere upstairs with armchairs and couches. The outside area with the overlooking loft effectively gives you 4 different locations you can sit down and drink at and I find myself moving around from beer to beer. The staff is SO knowledgeable and friendly, they will gladly let you sample any beer you like or help you choose a brew based on what you like. The selection is amazing, I've always been extremely impressed with what they have to offer, both on tap and in bottles. The food I gave a medium rating simply because they only really serve a small numbers of snack / appetizer items, its just not a food kind of bar. HIGHLY recommend this one to anyone in the area!!!! (865 characters)

Great selection of beer, both on top and bottled. Love the way the menu is setup, listing draught beers by type and bottled beers by country. Ask the waitress about the seasonal beers they have not listed on the menu and she'll steer you in the right direction. The beer garden atmosphere in the back is hard to be matched in Dallas. The German style pretzels are amazing. Quality place right here. (398 characters)
