Hops to It
Beer to go at a new kind of filling station
You’ve got to hand it to the owners of Craft and Growler, the six-month-old beer haven located a pigskin’s toss from the Cotton Bowl at Fair Park.
It’s a place that certainly caters to its clientele--even if your experience with growlers skews more canine than craft.
Before our recent visit to the bar and to-go beer emporium, we’re a little embarrassed to say we fell into the former category. But by the time we left the airy saloon--think dark-wood communal tables, a bright lacquered bar and wagon-wheel chandeliers--we had our growler in hand, sealed and ready to enjoy at home.
So how does the growler-filling process work? Well, after choosing our container ($6) and browsing the selection of 30 on-tap beers (most of which are local), we opted for the South Austin Belgian-Style Golden Ale ($6.39 for one liter) since Craft and Growler is the only place that pours it in Dallas.
With exclusive beers and an inclusive vibe, this bar is for nerds and novices alike.
