The Best Places in Dallas to Try on a Beer Before You Buy One

The Common Table The patio is amazing, and the lists of beers seem to shift like the weather at this bar in Uptown. Special events through the week showcase rare and exciting brews that are hard to find, and the patio out front is outstanding.

Meddlesome Moth If chef David McMillan gets the food at this Design District pub half as good as it was at the Screen Door, the Meddlesome Moth will hands down be the best beer bar in all of Dallas. All of the bars in this list have food that can be terrible at times (with the exception of Goodfriend's burgers) and I'm amazed that more beer bars don't expend more effort on the cuisine.

I stopped in the Moth a few weeks ago, and the menu hasn't changed much, but I noticed the french fries had improved greatly. Here's hoping the trend continues and speeds up.

Katy Trail Ice House The Ice House has the largest run of Texas taps I've seen since moving to the Lone Star State. That makes this place worthy of a few beers all on its own. When the weather is nice the massive patio doesn't hurt things either.
