This is one of my favorite spots, the staff knows their stuff and they play great music. For the people saying its in a "sketchy" area - go down a mile further from Meddlesome Moth and tell me your still in a nice part of town, Dallas is just mixed like that. If you're looking for great beer and a low key spot, this is the place for you.

Strangeways is strange indeed- a cool beer bar in a not-quite-there-yet ghetto-ish area. This is not a place you stumble upon while driving by. You ought to know about it or there is no way you'd be here otherwise.
But check it out and it looks cool inside, a long concrete bar, chill music, lots of tables and dim atmosphere. No crowds here, the place was almost empty when I visited on a Tuesday afternoon during happy hour times.
The biggest draw here are the taps, not a whole lot of them but oh my what quality: Mikkeller Ris a la M'ale and I Beat U, Founders Rubaeus, Ballast Victory at Sea, Southern Star Valkyrie DIPA, Boulevard Stingo and Grainstorm, Clown Shows Blaecorn and so on.
These folks clearly get the rarest, baddest beers in all of Dallas!
The bartender (owner?) was changing several taps on the menu as I was there, so I assume beers are fresh and renewed often here.
There is a small food menu of sandwiches and appetizers I didn't try but looked pretty alright. Prices are on the high side but understandable for such rare brews. I paid eight dollars for my Mikkeller I Beat U and seven dollars for a snifter of Rahr bourbon-barrel aged Winter Warmer.
A must for the beer lover in Dallas, can't wait to go back!
