"The Beer Hunt continues...in Dallas, Tex-ass" Eating / Drinking Tip by Cabana_Boy

Eating / Drinking, Dallas: 5 reviews and 2 photos

Favorite thing: Wherever you go, whatever you do, sampling the local beer is definite must.

What do the locals drink, what beer is most popular, which beer is hardest to find, does it come in a half pint glass just like grandma used to drink?or better still, a full pint glass like I drink??? These are all good questions that need to be answered...

And in Texas, forget about all the Budweisers and Lite Beers from Miller, DRINK SHINER BOCK....

Shiner Bock is the best thing Texas has to offer! Shiner is brewed in the little town of Shiner, Texas and to borrow a quote from Joe Bob Briggs, 'drink one and you'll understand.'

Fondest memory: Living in Texas is like watching evolution take place. Darwinism is always being tested... Several of my friends and I thumbed our nose at Charles Darwin one evening. At the time, I was living on the 7th floor of an old department store that had been converted into lofts in downtown Dallas. After many Shiners, my roommate decided that everyone was hungry and needed to experience his mother?s secret salsa recipe. So, Damian starts frying up peppers in a pan and blending tomatoes in a mixer. The next we know, a toxic gas from the frying peppers fills the flat and nobody can breathe. Eyes burning and throats choking, we opened up our windows and climbed out on to the two-foot wide ledge over looking the streets of downtown Dallas...probably not the most intelligent thing to do given our drunken mind-altered state. For the record, Damian never left the kitchen and nobody liked his Salsa...
