I was in town for Thanksgiving and my buddyís girlfiend suggested we go here. I hadnít heard of the place and I was looking to go to either The Meddlesome Moth, Ginger Man or The Common Table. I walk and and the place does have a kind of dive bar field but as soon as I saw the selection on the board and on tap I knew this was a cool spot. I a Clown Shoes Hoppy Feet and Boulevard Nut Cracker Ale (neither of which is available in Cali. And the Oskar Blues Ten Fidy, which I had been wanting to try but the price of a four pack was keeping me from buying it without knowing how it tasted. Now, itís on my must buy list. The food selection is a bit limited but it wasnít youíre typical bar food I had a turkey pastrami sandwich with sweet potato fries which was pretty good. Overall I liked this place and look forward to a visit there next time I go back home.

Visited later in the evening on a Tuesday. Easy to find, parking around the side and back as well as on the street. Cool, mural painted front with a nice seating area in front of the bar. Inside, it is a dark, dive bar with tons of character. 35 or so beers on draft with more of a national focus. Well selected, bunch of great and rare beers on. Bunch of bottles and food available as well. Service was great, and the crowd was laid back and fun to hang out with. Fun place.

76 = ★★★ (Worth the visit, must for locals, and visitors with time)

I only use the total score, not the component parts.

Unique ambiance, large draft selection, nice bartenders, solid value on beer and liquor. Awesome place to hang out and have a few drinks.

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.

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.

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.

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.

This is one of my "highly desirable" places to imbibe. Rough looking on the outside and nice a cozy on the inside. The staff is always super friendly and they keep a spectacular array of beers on tap.

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.

Great selection. Great vibe. Lots of beers off the mainstream. Great place to meet with friends. No TVs or anything of the like, so itís really just a social vibe.

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.
