Peticolas had been putting its beer in cans for only six months when the pandemic arrived and forced its taproom’s closure. Suddenly those four-packs became the brewery’s lifeline, and loyal customers lined up their cars, bikes and running shoes to pick up curbside beer to go. As grateful as we were to pound Velvet Hammers in our own homes, it’s wonderful that the split-level taproom is finally back open. There’s no better place in town to catch soccer games; Peticolas shows everything from Champions League to regional Mexican matches, and it’s a semi-official home for FC Dallas fans who don’t want to drive to Frisco. If there aren’t any games on, start your own by playing foosball, pingpong or shuffleboard upstairs.
