Not sure if you can get Real Ale up in Dallas, but I'd definitely give them a shot. Their Full Moon RyePA, and Rio Blanco Pale Ale very good beers. Independence Brewery also has some very good beers. I really like their Bootlegger Brown, and Austin Amber. Rahr and Sons Ugly Pug black lager is a great beer, and should be available up there.

I'm not familiar with any brewpubs or anything in Dallas, but the beers I mentioned are staples in my part of Texas, and really should be available up there.

Deep Ellum IPA is great, they're in Dallas.

Texas breweries you probably can't get in Vermont:

San Antonio:
Real Ale
Ranger Creek

Austin:
512
Live Oak
Independence (Currently done at Real Ale)

Houston:
Karbach
Southern Star
Saint Arnold
No Label
Buffalo Bayou

Dallas:
Rahr & Sons
Deep Ellum

I'm probably missing some but those are Texas breweries that don't go very far outside of our border, as well as some of the more local Shiner beers.

If you can get your hands on some Karbach in Dallas, it's the best thing going in TX right now, IMHO. Not sure if they distribute up to Dallas yet though.

My friend Michael owns and operates Peticolas Brewing Company. He opened in 01-2012 and won gold this past year at GABF with his English Pale Ale - Royal Scandal. His Imperial Red "Velvet Hammer is very good, too.

I would suggest going to one of the good local bars, Common Table, Meddlesome Moth, Strageways in Dallas, and trying as many locals as possible. I would put on my list as definites: Peticolas Velvet Hammer, the best beer in Dallas, Deep Ellum IPA, Lakewood Temptress, on nitro if possible, and their Hop Trapp. Four Corners isn't great, same with Firewheel. Rahr is solid but unless you can get a special seasonal they are not outstanding, jsut solid good beer. I often volunteer at Deep Ellum Brewing and Peticolas, its hard to go wrong with any of their beer. If you are here on a Saturday I'd suggest going to a brewery tour, PM me if you need more info, Dallas is probably one of the fastest growing craft beer spots in America right now, its a great place to be for beer.

Besides those mentioned, I'd add Franconia and Lakewood to the other breweries to checkout from Dallas. Austin Beer Works and Jester King from Austin.

Lots of great beers being produced in Texas. And several craft breweries currently set to come on line soon.

Great place for beer, horrible place for everything else, haha!
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.

Absolutely Jester King, I forgot to mention this, you can only get it in bottles in Dallas, but they are one of hte top 3 Texas breweries in my opinion

Had "The Velvet Hammer" at the Meddlesome Moth last summer and it was by far my favorite of all the beers I sampled there. Its a very malty beer similar to BJ's Jeremiah Red.
