I found a real beer I actually liked. Anyone who knows me knows that I do not like beer. Cider is delicious and I can drink that and most everything else, but I am not a beer girl. This weekend, however, I found a beer that even I enjoyed.
About Texas Ale Project
Fun fact: Dallas has not had a brewery built from the ground up since the late 1800s until Texas Ale Project (T.A.P.). They specialize in hand crafted beers that will make even the pickiest beer drinkers happy. Along with making great beer, they also host a ton of events each month, so be sure to check out the schedule to see what is coming next. Saturday, I attended brawl and brews at T.A.P.
Rain or shine, you can visit and have fun at Texas Ale Project. They have indoor seating in their tap room as well as a beautiful, shady patio. Bring your friends and play ping pong, an arcade game, or grab a board game to play while you sip on some of the best beers in Texas. Walk through the brewery on a free tour every Saturday at 2:00pm and 3:00pm to learn more about the process.
Dallas has some amazing breweries and Texas Ale Project is no exception. Plan a day date to visit T.A.P. and bring your four-legged friend too.
Almost every liquor store and Kroger in DFW carry T.A.P’s beers. They have 3 beers that they make year round, 100 Million Angels Singing (a double IPA with 100 IBUs), Fire Ant Funeral (traditional amber ale), and the 50 Ft. Jackrabbit (citrus IPA).
If you go in to the T.A.P. room, you will find more flavors even more creative than their names. Several seasonal and new flavors are rotated in and out, including one barrel brews. One of those is the P.B. and Pils which is a peanut butter infused pisner. Whoever thought to infuse beer with peanut butter is a genius! I guess I do like peanut butter coated/infused everything. Colton was a huge fan of the Texas Tea #2 (beer infused with green tea).
Brawl and Brews
The Barre Code Design District and The Barre Code Plano teamed up with Texas Ale Project for brawl and brews. One of my favorite Barre Code classes is brawl, a cardio kickboxing inspired workout. If you haven’t tried it yet, you should. Brawl sets The Barre Code apart from other barre studios.
The weather on Saturday was fantastic, warm and breezy. We had a great crowd of women (and a couple men) who came out to brawl. Julie G, owner and master trainer at The Barre Code Plano led us in a fun, sweaty routine full of cardio and strength. Every time I take a brawl class, my glutes are on fire for days. Be sure to stay up to date on The Barre Code Design District and The Barre Code Plano’s Facebook pages for other events like this.
