Try All Five Local Breweries and Support Texas Brewers at March Beer Dinner

Categories: Hophead

Just days after Texans celebrate the state's Independence Day on March 2, drinkers can support its independent brewers and try offerings from all five of the DFW area's functional breweries. (That number won't be five forever, but more on that later.)

Corey Pond at The Common Table says Rahr & Sons Brewing Company, Franconia Brewing Company, Deep Ellum Brewing Co., Lakewood Brewing Company and, fingers crossed, Peticolas Brewing Company, will all be featured in an all-local beer dinner 7 p.m. Monday, March 5.

Each brewery (with the possible exception of Peticolas, as brewer-owner Michael Peticolas wasn't certain he could commit, last Pond had heard) will offer one beer. In the next couple weeks, Pond says, chef Mike Smith will create a menu after sampling the beers to be featured.

The dinner will be $65, with $15 from each seat going toward Open The Taps, a worthy cause if ever there was one, and Pond has pledged at least $1,000. 

Update: Peticolas sent word Saturday that he has confirmed the date with Pond and his brewery will be part of the dinner as well.

Can those that are 100 for $100 members get in for $50?

Too bad it's at Common Table, which can offer up some really bad service.  They should also get the grand prize for the most "craft" beers with stupid and inane names.  If they are as diligent about cleaning their keg lines as they are in servicing the customers I would definitely stick to cans and bottles.

I wish someone would do some investigative reporting and try to get behind the Common Table - Moth conflict. Common Table has DEBC beers, but the Moth doesn't. Then Moth is going to have Peticolas beers but Common Table won't. And now, Peticolas can't commit to a beer dinner three months away at the CT? Not to mention the fact that the Moth mysteriously wouldn't participate in Dallas Beer Week. Maybe there's nothing there, but it just seems odd.

As a group, we can't begin to tell you how grateful we are to Corey Pond and The Common Table for their continued extrodinary support.  We will be working hard for the Texas Craft Beer consumer in the coming months and it will be events like The Common Table's that will help us reach out to the public.  We hope to see many of DFW's craft beer supporters there!

@JG - trying to raise more money for OTT really so the $15 per person is to their organization.  TCT is guaranteeing them $1K in donations so we can't really discount the tickets (we'll probably end up writing them a check regardless b/c we love what they're doing).  That extra $15 is to a great cause if you're a beer luvah!

Been there many times, and no problems.

There's no conflict - just a timing issue. The Moth is about to start carrying our beers (DEBC) soon. Peticolas is starting with the Moth, but come on - they're both in the Design District. No crazy green aliens here, just one of those things. I've spoken with both Keith Schlabs and Corey Pond who have both done amazing things for the beer world in Dallas. Love them both!

Sometimes, it's just a non-story. Take Ginger Man for example: To get a beer on their tap wall, a brewery has to be in their "book," and therefore it can take weeks, if not months. Don't assume different timelines due to back-end corporate paperwork amounts to feuds, biases or animosity.

From everything I've seen and heard, all Dallas-area brewers and retailers are friendly and helpful to one another.

Ardy, there is no conflict between The Moth and Common Table. Peticolas is doing an "exclusive" release to begin with at the Moth (from what I understand) and DEBC is working on getting their beers at The Moth very soon. I suspect 6 months from now we'll see DEBC and Peticolas beers at both locations!

Dear Ardy,    Who cares?  I suggest you quit tightening your shoelaces so tight-sir.  May I also suggest 6 Shiners, and a walk in the Duck Creek Greenbelt? Maybe the Old Growth Forest, in Richardson?  Sir.

@Chad M - that is correct.  We're friendly with The Moth here at TCT and actually go over there quite often to have drinks.  Their decision to not participate in DBWk didn't have anything to do with TCT from what I understand- was just a business decision.  Also, I've heard The Moth will be soon carrying DEBC Brews.  Was at Deep Ellum yesterday and some of the Moth guys were there.  Finally - as for Peticolas- he's just busy.  The only reason he wouldn't participate is if he has a schedule conflict.  He loves the idea and wants to be a part of it...

Great news!

While a drunken stroll down a greenbelt sounds nice, when I'm at the Moth and want to try the DEBC IPA release, I'm going to care.
