Chris Lohring has lived more than one brewing life over almost three decades of doing it professionally, and with Notch, he’s focused on the things that bring him the most joy—session-friendly lagers and ales designed to be consumed in a social setting.

He’s been brewing since 1993, but for his Pick 6 he didn’t want to go too deep and choose beers that are no longer available, preferring to focus on beers that have been meaningful to him over…….

My husband and I divide our time between a sailboat and a 200-square-foot tiny house. Mostly we hear comments like “livin’ the dream” and “I always wanted to do that” when the topic of our living arrangement comes up. While I’m inclined to agree most of the time, if it were easy, everyone would do it.

Gazing into the crystal ball to predict what we’ll be eating and drinking in the coming year is always one of my favorite stories to write as the new year approaches.

During the pandemic, however, there have been few straight answers, though more frequent shifts that have moved the entire food industry in new directions.

Here are some of the innovations I predict will continue in 2022, finding new audiences or becoming significant …….

The beginning of 2021 seems as though it was only yesterday, yet simultaneously, a decade ago. With the benefit of year-end-powered hindsight, it’s clear that Dallas-Fort Worth brewers were up to the many challenges placed before them. The number of openings dwarfed the number of brewery closings. An impressive number of operations expanded into larger facilities, with some even adding second locations.

One of the region’s top industry observers, Brian Brown of Beer in Big D, has keenly reported on the ebbs and flows of the N…….

Welcome to On Tap! Each week in this recurring feature, we’ll take an in-depth look at one of the many beers available in the crowded North Texas brew scene. The goal here is to look at these area beers without our local goggles on, and to wonder aloud, “Is this beer good or do I just like it because it’s local?” Let’s find out! Cheers!

This week I sipped on Worth the Wait from Peticolas Brewing Company.

Two bars had to close for a few days because of COVID cases among staff – and trouble finding tests over the holiday weekend.

Sometimes the stars align and the universe hands you what feels almost like a gift.

The universe, though, clearly appreciates a good setup.

Brothers Curtis and Cody Bell started Bell Brothers Brewing in 2017, with the “hopes and dreams” of opening by 2019 — if everything went according to plan.

Things did not, to say the least.

They originally set their sights on a spot in Fountain, and when that fell through they cast a wider net.

“We were kind of looking all over the place, and to be honest, my brother and I were just …….
