Revolver’s Blood & Honey vs. Armadillo’s Greenbelt Farmhouse Ale

You’ve read our ranking of the best beers in Dallas. Now we want to know what you think. This is the second of four head-to-head match-ups we’re posing. Last week Peticolas Golden Opportunity soundly defeated Franconia Koelsch, 64 percent to 36 percent.

This time around it’s Revolver’s Blood & Honey vs Armadillo Ale Works’ Greenbelt Farmhouse Ale. The vibrant sweetness of that crowd pleasing, yet devilishly complex American Wheat from Revolver is up against the newish bros on the block just to the north, Armadillo. Blood and Honey came in 20th in our blind test, just a few steps behind the Greenbelt at 17th, but maybe you all disagree. Which of these summer friendly wheat beers will keep your jets cooled and poised for excellence?

Beer Pairing 101: What to Eat and Drink at LUCK’s

Trinity Groves’ hyperlocal LUCK is the only spot in Dallas where all 40 taps are North Texas beers, brewed within a 70-mile radius of West Dallas. When we asked General Manager Michael Ferrari what his best beer pairing suggestion for the restaurant could be, he suggested the cheesy shrimp and grits with a runny egg yolk on top, covered in a Creole sauce and chopped green onions. This, he says, goes really well with Deep Ellum Brewing Co.’s IPA.

To Detect and Serve: The Wild Detectives Brews Excellent Coffee

Now that Matthew McConaughey’s taut, sinewy body is done brain-screwing us with his apathetic, brooding intensity, it’s time to turn our affections to the new detectives in town.
