The family and I are taking a road trip over the holiday coming up (that holiday being my 29th birthday) to Wichita and Ft. Worth. We're just spending the night in my hometown of Wichita, stopping at the Donut Whole for some maple bacon donuts and heading to my brother-in-law's house just outside of Ft. Worth.
I already have some of my own Texpertise from several trips down there in the past. I know I'm going to have access to Dogfish Head and Stone beers as well as local brewers like Live Oak, Rahr and Sons (where I'm hopefully going to have a tour) and St. Arnolds. I also found another well regarded brewery that I have no knowledge of in Green Flash. Of beers from those breweries, does anyone have any must trys (I've had just about every Dogfish Head beer in previous trips so I'm more interested in beers from the other breweries)? I know Lee is going to give me a rundown on the St. Arnolds lineup.
I'll be hitting up the Flying Saucer in Ft. Worth where I should be able to find any of your suggestions. We'll also be visiting the manna of Texas liquor stores in Goody Goody. So I should be able to find any beers available in Texas. I'll also be hitting up the Yucatan Taco Stand Tequila Bar & Grill for some fish tacos, cabrito tacos and maybe some paella. For fun we're going to go see the Frisco Rough Riders vs. Tulsa Drillers where I'll be able to see former Cubs Steve Buechele and Brant Brown coach Chet Lemon's son.
Does anyone have any Texpertise and point out some must not miss beers or food? No, I'm not interested in any nude bars, porn shops or fireworks stands so leave those suggestions to yourself.
