Why is Dallas such a wasteland for breweries?

Local zoning laws. However, that's changing as we speak. Dallas is working on an ordinance change that'll allow more breweries to open easier and quicker. It has gotten better though. Deep Ellum, Franconia, Rahr, Ass Kisser plus a few big chain on premise places like Gordon Biersch, BJ's, Humperdinks and Uncle Bucks. Lot's more beer bars as well.

Wow, this is weird. I only saw your post after I posted mine. My Guiness is also from a can, a pack of four I bought Friday afternoon.

Good taste.

you too

When the wine list stinks or is non-existent, Guinness is my go to beer.
