If in the neighbourhood, it is worth a stop in to see what is new. They are unlikely to have anything exclusive, but they are always on the leading edge, much more then The Saucer as of late. Service is notorious for being awful- pouty barmaids who look to hate their job. Food is limited to snack type stuff. Excellent backyard patio when the weather is nice.
For the two weeks of the year where its nice to sit outside, a huge 2 story patio exists. Spent the day sipping beers with a friend. During the day there is no table service and usually a single bartender so things can be somewhat slow or hetic. other patrons will either delight you to watch or annoy the living wits out of you. A good example being the two ladies with the pomerians in carrier purses.

Much nicer and spacier than the Houston location. Good selection. You’ll find something you like. Get there early before the frat daddies and sorority girls take it over...
Decent beers on tap for Dallas. Kinda small and crowded. When I went in June, it was quite warm inside. Upscale yuppie clientale, but not the frat variety. As far as Dallas beer joints go, this is the best. Kinda sad, huh?
Good selection for the Dallas area. Poor food choices. Live music on Saturday. Friendly staff. A little over priced. They do keep good care of the beer. Ask for a free sample; don’t get something you don’t like!
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. i’ll be back many more times, don’t 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 I’ve 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 don’t 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).
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...
