The dinner sounds tasty (menu available here), and should also be a great opportunity to try some very interesting beers. Boxer's Revenge, for example, is a farmhouse-style ale refermented in French oak wine barrels with wild yeast. Even more intriguing is Drink'in The Sunbelt, the brewery's first of two planned collaborations with Danish "gypsy brewer" Mikkeller. It's described as a "very hoppy, flavorful session ale brewed with equal portions of malted barley and malted wheat, and heavily dry-hopped with citrusy, American Amarillo hops."
Seats are $50 apiece, and reservations are recommended. Call 214-824-7900, or you can win a pair of tickets. Jump to find out how.
Because of the brewery's name and because of the dinner's proximity to April Fool's Day, a joke-themed comment contest seems in order. To win, describe the greatest prank or practical joke you have ever pulled (or had pulled on you) in the comments below.
Remember, we will need to be able to contact you if you win, so be sure to log into Disqus (our commenting system) with a valid email address or Facebook profile.
The contest is open until 3 p.m. Monday.
