    I had a good couple days buying beer, spent some money, but it is all going to be delicious. Spread this out between Halls, Specs Walnut, TW Walnut, and WF Park. Got 3 Enjoy Bys (which are fresh and delicious). Looking forward to drinking it all.

    Does anyone know if any of the "craft beers" at the North Texas Irish Festival are worth a damn? It looks like a Guinness sponsored event, so I'm hesitant to make the trip out there.

    Picked up an Ovila Abbey Quad, Enjoy By, and a Old Guardian from Halls. Has anyone tried the Smoked Oak OG yet?

    First enjoy by tried tonight... pretty good DIPA. Not the best I have ever had, but pretty good + a good gimick that exposes craft beer flaws (ie no bottling date). Worth it for sure!

    Barn Burner tastes like a weak Trois Pistoles... :confused: This isn't a saison to me.

    I've really come around on that Total. I was very suspecting but damn if I haven't had a great experience each time. Unfortunately it's kinda out of the way but they are the only place that's has gotten Sucks that I've seen so I break over there a couple time a month.

    Hall's if you're near Colleyville, Lonestar if you're near 35/Frankford (ish), Kegs & Barrels/Specs/Whole Foods/CM if you're in Plano, and Specs/Whole Foods/Central Market/Total Wine elsewhere. I can't speak at all to Ft Worth/Arlington, but that's the general overview.

    Stick to Dallas if you want beers not readily available in Houston ( Deep Ellum, Lakewood, etc)

    If you are in Fort Worth. The Saucer is doing their Barleywine Fest on Saturday at noon til whenever the beer is gone. They'll have pours of BA Bigfoot and BA Kickin Chicken (I think that's what it's called but I've kicked back a few myself tonight and am too lazy too look), '12 Bigfoot, Olde School, '11 and '12 Sisyphus on draft.

    Specs on Bryant Irvin was the only place I saw palate wrecker and its gone now I believe, but I've seen sucks up there just about every time I've been there.

    I heard that place is a ghost town...I haven't been in yet but until the highway gets cleared up that place is going to well off my radar. You happen to know if they got the BA Bigfoot there?
