Visited December 2012.

This looks kind of dumpy on the outside and there isnít a ton of parking (we had to park across the street at the market). Inside itís equally run down looking, more like unfinished. Looks can be deceiving though as the draft list was pretty good. They also have food, which was nice. The bartender offered samples which was very nice of him. They have this day of the dead theme going on which is neat I suppose.

Easily the best tap selection Iíve seen in Dallas. Only a few miles away from where I use to live. Iíll be back every single time Iím back in Dallas. I feel this place is really going to contribute to the beer scene in TX. Amazing tap list, I thought it was the bottle list at first (Mikkeller Frelser, Tokyo*, Snowmageddon, La Folie, some hard to find Belgian Kegs all on tap in TX). They also have a full bar and may or may not have some pretty cool bottles. Enjoyed a few bottles of some very good stuff while I was there. Great, friendly and knowledgeable service. Still not a great area. Didnít try the food, but the menu looked pretty decent. Interesting atmosphere. Worth a stop if you are even remotely close by.

Stopped in for a few beers after having dinner at the Meddlesome Moth. Kind of in a sketchy area. They sort of an industrial feel, but have a very nice patio. Kind of dive barish, but had a very solid tap selection for Texas. They were out of two beets I really wanted, but had plenty of other regional choices that kept me busy including a Mikkeller tap.Didnít try any food and didnt really see anybody else eating either. Definitely worth a stop.

Very cool bar with an ever rotating selection of craft brews. They almost always have something from Mikkeller on. Excellent bottle list as well. The owner and his sister both know a good deal amount beer and can help point you in the right direction if needed. I havenít had food there but the menu looks good.

This is a great little place. 36 outstanding taps. No Guinness, no Boddingtons, no Sam Adams, no bud/miller/coors. All good stuff. Green Flash, Southern Star, 512, Bear Republic, Clown Shoes, you get the drift. Cool ambiance, and much more "comfy" than The Moth or The Table.

Spent the evening of my 5th wedding anniversary here because Iíd heard great things about the beer selection on draught, and was pleasantly surprised. The atmosphere is that of a dive bar for the most part. The neighborhood hasnít really been refreshed just yet, but I suspect Strangeways may help lead the charge. Itís really one of the only places on this street Iíd visit within at least 500 feet. I didnít explore the street enough to know otherwise. Great patio and people watching, although a bit smoky. To be expected when smoking indoors is illegal I suppose. Service was top notch. The bartender Vince made us feel like weíd known him a long time, despite just meeting him that evening. The owner Eric was equally welcoming and spent lots of time talking to us. Selection of beers rivals that of any place in Dallas, including The Moth, and The Common Table and I told them that. They had La Folie on tap which was drinking phenomenally. Also had the Southern Star Pro-AM 2011 which I havenít seen elsewhere just yet. Plenty of Bear Republic, 512, and lots of other great beers. Stuff you donít see everywhere. You can tell theyíve worked hard on having unique stuff that no where else does, and the mix is just right. Iíll definitely be back, my only complaint is that pricing is slightly high. When you have a place as beautiful as The Moth and this place charges more than they do for beers, somethingís not quite in balance.

Great Place. Really nice selection. Service was exceptional. I was also pleasantly surprised when the tab came. Definitely a place to stop when in the area.

One of Dallasís top stops for on-premise consumption. Dank yet warm, Strangeways has the most eclectic list of beers available on tap in Dallas. Iíve not had their food but have had many great brews here over the last year and a half. Look for lots of Mikkeller that you wonít find elsewhere in the metroplex. Also give their bottle fridge a peek, as you may surprise yourself. Finally, if you get tired of beer, ask for Pappy van Winkle.

Best selection I saw in Dallas and the bartenders know what they are doing. Good pricing and a large area with lots of interesting things to look at. Parking is easy... Did not try the food.

40 beers on tap! This place looks like a half-built garage, but it has character. This is a great place to hang out with friends and peruse the tap list.
