Hopefully the bars you list aren't full of douchetastic Ed Hardy and Tapout wannabe's. The women are as fake and stuck up as the gals in LA, for no reason whatsoever.

Wow, I didn't know there were people who preferred Houston over Dallas that had access to the interwebs and enough education to type complete sentences haha. I lived in Deer Park until I was 18, came to Dallas for college and haven't looked back, I hate Houston, its dirty, and everyone there is fat.

The bars I listed are not douchy bars, we def have plenty of that though, the bars I listed are total beer bars, one has already eliminated all BMC products.

Can't wait for the Rangers to spank the Astros 18 times this year!

I'm from San Antonio, I hate Houston but it's not any better than Dallas.

Y'all need to be nice - we're all from the same great state.

I'm from Houston and love it (when it's not summertime). I like Dallas quite a bit, too, even though I tend to get lost there if I'm not going to one of a handful of places I have been. Dallas strikes a different sort of traffic fear in my than most places. I digress. To get back on topic, none of those Dallas bars listed are douchey as far as my experience goes.

Go Astros!

Community Brewing literally opened up last weekend. Very solid Pale Ale but not sure how widespread their beer is yet.

My favorite beer place by far is the Gingerman and, really the only place for growler fills is Craft and Growler. Lots of Texas beers on draft. Definitely check out Meddlesome Moth and Common Table too. And +1 on Velvet Hammer and Deep Ellum IPA.

Oh man I sure do love giving Dallas hell! But in all honesty, Other than the overrun of douches, It's just like any big city. Bad traffic amd overpriced everything.

No love lost on the Astros, They are in for a very rude awakening this year!

Just don't tell me you are a Cowboys fan too!

I love the Astros, went to both 2005 World Series games, but in about '08 I finally gave in and became a Rangers fan. It was an easy transition as they weren't competition, they could ideally play each other in the WS, now that the 'stros are a AL West team, I have to choose, and I choose the Rangers.

No way I am a Cowboys fan, I am and always will be a Texans fan, such a great season that ended so disappointingly this year.

I also converted to Mavs, at least I have one championship team in the last decade haha.

Still an Oilers fan here. Not as disappointing as is used to be.

Thanks guys. That gives me some ideas. I'll only be down for three days and will be pretty busy, but I hope to sneak out for a few beers and take some decent bottles home. It'll just be nice to have a few warm days. It was 22 below here last night!

Try Rahr & Sons Blonde Lager. It is excellent. Rahr & Sons is from Ft. Worth (30 miles west of Dallas).

Yes they are related to the Rahr malt company.
