Visited December 2012.
I guess they do trivia on certain week nights, which was just starting as I walked in. I enjoy trivia but Iím not all that great at it. Also, it was a two hour commitment that I wasnít prepared to make. And if youíre at trivia night and youíre not playing trivia you wonít be able to enjoy yourself with the MC making jokes, playing 30 seconds of a song at a time, and reading questions/answers. I guess you could have fun if youíre the type that thinks they are hyper intelligent because theyíre on their smart phone all day looking up answers on Google, since thereís no rule that you canít be a dbag know-it-all (so long as you arenít yelling out answers) if you arenít actually playing. All that said the food and beer were pretty good. The beer list wasnít all that impressive, mostly Texan beers, but there was enough interesting stuff that everyone can find something good. We tried two different cups of chili, a bit of chili ticking if you will. One had ghost peppers in it and the other had a different combinations of peppers. Iím not a big fan of ghost peppers to be honest but sometimes someone will roast them just right and theyíre not bad. The non ghost chili chili was definitely better. Service was friendly, prices were high, the usual for an upscale beer place.

Lots of great beer on tap. Nice cheese plate. Is a little dark inside. Decent seating area outside. Nicest beer place Iíve been to in Texas.

This is my favorite place to stop for a beer and grab a really good tasting meal. Me and my girlfriend will stop in after work sometimes and every time has been great. I know both the bartenders there and they greet me like a friend and always keep me up to date with the new rare rotations and the like. Picked up a couple Avery Rumpkins while they had them there. Would recommend this to any beer geek as they always have something tasty on tap, and the food is award winning. Canít go wrong for a good night out. Only con here is that it is a relatively small venue and can get quite crowded during certain weeknights. Go on a Monday or Tuesday for a slower night. Highly recommended!

Great, always-changing selection of beers - including some of the hard-to-find Belgies. They always have special events and tasting... most recently Dogfish Head 120 Minute. The staff is great... the food is fantastic... my go-to beer place. Check íem out!

Great English-pub style feel with dark heavy woods, a custom-built bar thatís really neat, and no smoking to be found which is great.
Service is almost always top notch, no complaints. The staff also tried to be educated on beer which is the important part.
Selection tends to be near the upper echelon in Dallas area, and Brian (the owner) always tries to have stuff that most other places donít.
Food is hit or miss. Sometimes fantastic, and sometimes during a couple of beer dinners Iíve had, we have had lackluster results given the price point. Their every day food tends to be better and Iíd rate that "very good".
Value for the money is great except for their beer dinners, which as previously mentioned are a bit high. They tax the entire dinner, which when including alcohol shouldnít be the case.
One of my favorite spots in all of DFW, but obviously not without its flaws as well. Minor complaints in general though.

Nice little place located on Preston Road near the intersection with State Highway 121. Features a very nice tap selection and occasionally has hard-to-find, rare beers on tap. Also has tap nights where you keep the breweryís glass. Food is above average for bar food and the menu is fairly extensive. Prices are about the same as other beer-centric bars. Definitely one of the better beer bars in the Metroplex and the best in Plano.

One of my favorite area bars for many reasons. Their food is fresh and made from scratch - they have one of the top 5 burgers in the area in my opinion. The owner and most of the staff are friendly and quite knowledgable and they usually have a nice selection of top notch brews on tap. Check out their periodic beer pairing dinners for a real treat!

Easy place to get too off of 121...Nice, easy dim lite easy going atmosphere with friendly bar folk. only open a year and have a very nice selection of draft and bottled beer. I really love the fact they push the Texas brews, great happy hour pricing....The food is good as well.....I noticed some dart boards in the back as well, I like that.....I will certainly visit this place again!
