    Just moved to Dallas from Florida. Brought 3 cases of local and Florida brews with me. I had three different beer share groups there. I wanted to find a good group here in town. If anyone knows of a good beer share group please let me know.

    You want the SW Forum. There's a map with some BAs for DFW, that's probably your best bet for finding a group.

    H0rnedfrogs is 100% right! Find him! And if you don't like him, maybe he can connect you with some people a little less jerky :wink:

    I don't get on here for a week or more and I come back to the two of you :wink:

    Welcome to Dallas @kylehay2004 . There used to be very few East Dallas folks but there are more of us now. Here is the thread http://www.beeradvocate.com/community/threads/dfw-beer-advocate-map-for-tastings-etc.47822/ that the beer map is on.

    Tons of opinions on the best bar in our area. I agree with Noah and Will, Strangeways is my go to most of the time. Check out Goodfriend, Craft & Growler, Common Table, The Bottle Shop and the nicest of the bunch Meddlesome Moth, then form your own opinion on which is the best.

    Let's meet up for a beer or three.

    Still newer to trading but always down to meet up and I'm also in east Dallas. I also concur about @mattisloco being a badass BA, by the way I have my old man bringing up some JK goodness next weekend so we need to plan something relatively soon!

    I also recently moved inside the loop from Arlington, so I'd be up for a share soon, or at least a get-together at one of the aforementioned places.

    I really should host a bottle share myself for E. Dallas... getting to a point where I'm running out of space, just tough when I'm never here.

    I mostly go to Craft & Growler, Common Table, and WBC Bottle Shop.

    Ooooh. . . Dallas people! I work over near all of those places, and would love to meet up sometime to get to know some good, local BA folks!

    Do I see another bottle share in the near future? I'm down for a beer meet up of any kind...

    I'm in for something. Just moved to town - Lakewood area. Looking to meet some drinking buddies as my wife spends 80+ hours working at Parkland.
