went on an early saturday afternoon due to the alert from legion that there was a new real ale on tap. arrived after driving passed it once and realizing my error too late. walked passed the front patio to the inside. the setup is just what i was looking for. you can tell in 5 seconds that this place is about good beer first and everything else second. asked for the new real ale, and the guy explained that they had just blown their keg last night, so i had something else, then i saw that he was mistaking a different real ale than the one i was interested in. once that was straigtened out it was smooth sailing. i chatted with the bartender over a few more drinks about good beer and dumb customers. had a good time. iíll be back many more times, donít know why i waited so long. i finally have a safe haven when i have to go to that neighborhood of yuppy trendy bastards.

The best place for beer Iíve found in Dallas. Nice atmopshere with a lot of seating outside, both in front and with the section in back and on the roof. The beer selection looked good but they were out of some choice offerings when I visited. I sampled the Live Oak Liberation IPA and the brand new Bigfoot 05 on draft. I will visit this place again when in town.

This is the bar that most closely approximates the "beer bar" feel of the great places on the coasts--where drinkers are there because they love good beer, where the staff knows it when they just got in a *really* good beer, etc. Nice layout with an upstairs and a large outdoor patio for music. Great selection. I find that it is located out of the way for me, so I donít go very often, but it is convenient to the downtown and the restaurants of this part of town (e.g., Hard Rock cafe is close).

Most knowledgeable staff in town. Good selection of beers (for Texas). Friendly crowd.

Service was better than the Flying Saucer (but no hot young chick waitresses though) and they are much more knowledgeable than the Saucer...selection not as good...food seems the same as the Saucer...curious...

About 70 taps. I was impressed that the bartender seemed to know what she was talking about. My major complaint is that they did not use proper glassware. A generic lager glass was used for all half pints. Other than that, a solid bar with a great selection.

Same basic dark feel of the other Gmen. Have spent most of my time on deck in front or beer garden in back. Wide selection, but the few times I've been in didn't have the odd new/great beer I had hoped to find. Imagine that's more of a timing issue. With the number of taps that they do have it is hardly a big issue. If memory serves, there was a good juke box selection as well.
