Behold (and Chug): LUCK's Beer Stout Float

Categories: Beer, Eat This

Beer + Ice Cream + Beer, at LUCK Dallas
Fear not, Dallas citizens, for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people aged 21 and over. For unto you is served this day, in the master-planned restaurant complex of Trinity Groves™, a summer indulgence, which you're going to want to pour into your facefront.

This shall be a sign unto you: get your mouth on a stout float from LUCK Dallas, or get thee the hell out of my way. It's beer, it's ice cream -- it's beer ice cream drowning in beer.

I'm a sucker for the combination of nostalgic childhood foods and booze, like the Double Wide's crazy-ass cocktails made with Tang and YooHoo. But the great thing about LUCK's beer stout float is that it actually delivers on your expectations of it being delicious, decadent, and perfect in every way.

The real star of the dish is the ice cream -- it's made in house from a rotating list of local beers and other ingredients. When I was there, LUCK was working through a batch made with Rabbit Hole Brewing's Rapture Brown Ale. You can buy the ice cream on its own, of course. But why the hell would you? For $2 more, they'll put those scoops of ice cream into a mason jar and top it with Lakewood's Raspberry Temptress. Then -- and this is the best part, so please pay attention -- you get to consume beer and beer ice cream at the same time.

If, somehow, you found ten million dollars, then invested that money in a successful start up and watched your fortune grow to ten billion dollars, and you managed to cash out at just the right time and you literally had more money than you could ever possibly spend in your lifetime, there STILL wouldn't be a pleasure you could buy that would dramatically exceed the experience of consuming delightful beer and delectable beer ice cream at the same time.

Basically, LUCK's beer stout will make you and Warren Buffet the same person, if only for a few melty moments. Stout floats are the new economic equalizer, and it's a wonderful time to be alive and middle class in Dallas.

And while we're on the subject -- get with the program, all the other ice cream. Why aren't you getting me drunk while I stuff my face with 160 percent of my daily amount of saturated fat? In fact, why doesn't all food also get you drunk? Could LUCK make this happen? Has LUCK already made this happen? How many beer stout floats have I had? How many more can I have? Oh yeah, then answer me this, smart guy -- If I'm not an international billionaire playboy, then how is it that I'm eating beer ice cream AND beer at the same time?

I'll have one more of these, please and thank you.

I remember the first one of these that I had. It was at the Saucer about 4 years ago.

"Beer is proof that god loves us and wants us to be happy?"  

In its infinite variety you don't really need to continue to trick it up.


Why is Denton becoming Dallas?  Is anything real anymore? 


Oh shit here we go again!  It just can't be a beer; just about one of the most glorious things God has bestowed upon us; no fair citizens, it has to be a Beer Float.  Just like everything else in this backwater outpost, we are 5 years behind everyone, because we do dumb crap like this.  Oh, it ain't cool unless you have a burger with an egg on it, or bartender with a fedora, or a chef with either funny glasses or GIANT attitude, replete with tat's and a mohawk. 

Can you imagine the type of person that would partake in this indulgence?  Do I need to go into my description of the typically Dallas 20-40 something who frequents the outdoors patio's in this area? Do I?  And that is progress?  

It's all a mirage folks, and ya'll are free to do normal things now, free of the trends you see friends engage of jealousy.........let loose of the bonds of keeping up with the all can walk your own path (music ramping up as I motivate the dirty, communal hear a distant eagle screech in the distance!); you folks are good people, just turn the hats around, work a little more, and just drink regular "dat beera". 

Again, when our grandparents were getting limbs blown off and eating rats on a smokey, blood laden battlefield, could they ever imagine drinking a Beer Float!? 


@kergo1spaceship Burgers with eggs on them are good. Also, "You can get normal beer at your local bar" doesn't make for a very good blog post, as most (read "all") people know that already.

Said the young guy working at Home Depot with his hat on backwards livin' with his mama.

Just a turd that follow others. What are they going to tell you to do next?  Will it be cool for you trendsters to put a whole apple on a piece of bacon-dummy!

ps-Take that Sawx hat off.


@kergo1spaceship @MattL11 That's just a picture of me wearing a hat. Asking me to remove it is as futile a request as it would be for me to ask you to communicate in a comprehensible manner. But yes, I was a much younger man when that picture was taken. 

Beyond that, I just don't understand the hostility towards people wanting to try new and different things (though I'd contend that this particular item is neither). Remember, there was a time in history when everything you today believe to be "normal" was considered different, trendy, or radical.
