Brewery Spotlight: Tupps Brewery

State & Allen

State & Allen Kitchen + Bar recently revamped our beers on tap and we added a couple from a local Dallas-Fort Worth area brewery: Tupps Brewery.

 

Tupps Brewery – located in McKinney, Texas - hit the scene in 2015 and they won us over with their nod to rustic, historic Texas (the brewery is located adjacent to an old cotton mill after all), all while using state-of-the-art techniques to create some really great beer. Not to mention, State & Allen loves supporting local Dallas craft breweries. Here is Tupps recipe for success:

 

Step 1: Start with the Taste

When creating craft beer at Tupps Brewery, the founders – Keith Lewis and Tupper Patnode – turn to their tastebuds first. A blend of creativity, smell, and taste goes into deciding whether it makes the cut, and if it does, it moves on to Step 2.

 

Step 2: Refine with Technology

Once the beer tastes good and everyone is pleased with the product, Tupps Brewery uses its state-of-the-art equipment to add quality control and consistency to each batch.

 

Step 3: Taste the Beer Again

At the end of the day, it’s about the taste. Tupps goes back and tries the beer again, ensuring each batch is delicious.

 

So What’s on Tap at State & Allen?

Great question! 2 of our favorites from Tupps Brewery are currently featured on tap at State & Allen:

 

·      TUPPS Day Off: We love this beer because it’s easy to drink any day of the week! Light, refreshing… sip it on the patio with friends at State & Allen and you won’t be disappointed!

·      Raspberry Shade: The perfect seasonal beer for summer, TUPPS Raspberry Shade blends the taste of sweet summer berries into the classic wheat beer, TUPPS Texas Shade. It will soon be your summer go-to beer!

 

Join us at State & Allen this week to enjoy the best craft beer on tap and delicious drink specials in Dallas everyday of the week!

Wine Tasting: 4 Steps to Drinking Wine Like a Sommelier

State & Allen

At State & Allen, we love wine.

 

And we know our patrons love wine.

 

That’s why we offer Dallas wine specials on hand-selected wines from around the world. Reds, whites, sparklings, and roses – State & Allen has you covered!

 

And while many love the flavor of wine, knowing how to select the proper wine and how to sip it for optimum flavor is daunting. That’s why State & Allen is here with a few “tricks of the trade” to help you drink wine like the pros:

 

Step 1: Watch the Pour

As a wine ages, it will change colors, so often times, the color of the wine will give context to the wine's age. Red wines tend to lose vibrancy as they age, so watch the color as it’s poured to see how light or dark it is. For white wines, you’ll notice a golden color to indicate an older wine; watery yellow means it’s younger.

 

Step 2: Swirl the Wine

The main point of swirling a glass of wine is to help it breathe. Allowing a wine to oxygenate with help the flavor blossom and open up, making the wine taste better. Ready to learn the perfect swirl? Hold the glass by the stem and gently swirl it with your wrist, keeping your elbow still.

wine specials dallas state and allen

 

Step 3: Smell the Wine

With hundreds of grape varieties out there, each wine or wine blend will have its own unique flavor and aroma. As you swirl, inhale and see if you smell anything particular in the wine. You can also take a small sip and deliver it to the back of our tongue and hold it there. This method will help the scent travel up to your olfactory bulbs in your nose for ease of smell and taste together.

 

Step 4: Savor Each Sip

Wine is meant to be savored. Sipping each glass slowly helps you take in the flavors and experience the full body each wine has to offer.

 

Ready to practice your wine tasting skills? Visit us at State & Allen this week for Dallas wine specials! With a fully stocked wine list, there is a wine for everyone!

Why Does State & Allen Serve Free Range Eggs?

State & Allen

If you join us at State & Allen for our weekend brunch in Dallas, you’ll notice that our menu specifically states that all of our eggs are free range. Some might wonder why this matters, because, an egg is an egg right?

 

At State & Allen we believe in clean eating and producing the freshest, highest quality meals around. Our meals are prepared fresh in our scratch kitchen, with simple cooking methods that let the natural flavors shine through. In our efforts to select the best quality foods for our customers, we’ve chosen free range eggs, and here are a few reasons why:

 

1.  Higher Nutritional Content

 

While all eggs are considered complete proteins and are abundant in vitamins and minerals, free range eggs have even higher quantities of nutrients than their conventional counterparts. This is because what goes into the chicken matters. And if a chicken is happy and able to go out and roam, selecting its own food in the process, it produces better quality eggs.  Studies have shown free range eggs to have more Vitamin A, Vitamin E, Vitamin D and other nutrients than conventional eggs.

 

2.  Less Saturated Fat & Cholesterol

 

One recent study shows that free range eggs contain 1/3 less cholesterol and ¼ less saturated fat than conventional eggs! While cholesterol levels in eggs shouldn’t be alarming, it’s always nice to know that you can get a healthier, more nutrient egg with less of the stuff you don’t want.

 

3.  More Omega-3s

 

Omega-3 fatty acids are important to our body because our body needs them for heart health and so much more, but we can’t produce them ourselves. Studies show Omega-3s to be 2-4 times higher in free range eggs.

 

Join us for Dallas brunch this weekend at State & Allen, where you’ll be served nothing but the best: free range eggs!

Salads at State & Allen are Anything but Boring!

State & Allen

When you hear the word “salad,” what words come to mind?

 

Are you delighted? Does your mouth start to water? Or do you begin to breakout in cold sweats at the thought of it as a meal?

 

Most people find the idea of a salad for dinner completely underwhelming, and State & Allen can relate. That’s why we’ve created a menu of salad entrees that are creative, delicious, and filling. Try any one of these 3 standout salads today and you’ll begin to change your view on a salad for dinner:

 

·     Warm Spinach & Chicken Paillard Salad: Fresh spinach leaves are just barely wilted, then topped with wild mushrooms, sun dried tomatoes, red peppers, purple-hulled peas, pine nuts, and juicy chicken.

Brewery Spotlight: Alamo Beer Company

State & Allen

This just in – State & Allen Kitchen + Bar in Dallas, Texas is now serving Alamo Beer Company’s Alamo Amber Lager. It’s a delicious light bodied wheat beer you’ve just got to try, brewed right here in the great state of Texas!

 

Wait…what’s that? You’ve never heard of Alamo Beer? Let State & Allen give you the backstory!

 

A Legend in the Making

 

While Alamo Beer Company is relatively new to the market, Alamo beer itself dates back to the late 1880s. At the time, Lone Star Beer Company in San Antonio, Texas was the brewery of choice in the Texas Hill Country and they brewed an Alamo beer. Well along came the prohibition, and with it, the beer supply dried up. After the prohibition, beer started flowing again, but the Alamo branded beer never returned. That is until Eugene Simor brought it back.

 

In the 1990s, Simor moved to San Antonio and looked high and low for his favorite Texas beer. He loved Frio, Lone Star, and Yellow Rose – all brewed in San Antonio – but when they all closed, an idea came to mind. He decided to make his own beer and call it Alamo. Simor partnered with Real Ale Brewing to create a beer all his own. Distribution started small (he actually delivered it from the back of his wife’s minivan!), then grew to being carried to San Antonio’s HEB stores, and then to being distributed throughout the state of Texas by Ben E. Keith.

 

State & Allen Loves Alamo Beer Company!

 

State & Allen loves supporting local Texas breweries and we are proud to start carrying the Alamo Amber Lager on tap. As a traditional Vienna style lager, it’s light, it’s smooth, and oh so easy to drink.

State & Allen

It’s a busy season. There’s a lot going on. State & Allen can help.

State & Allen carries a wide range of dishes – that can be delivered for FREE! – to suit anything you’re in the mood for. Scratch kitchen entrees, amazing salads, warm, homemade soups, and delicious sandwiches. But let’s not forget about one of our customer favorites: pizza at State & Allen.

 

Handcrafted, Scratch Kitchen Pizza

Looking for authentic pizza with tons of flavor? Our pizza can’t be beat! Our delicious hand-tossed crust is topped with homemade pizza sauce, using only fresh, Texas tomatoes. And after that – the toppings are up to you! Go with a gourmet, menu favorite or create your own. The skies the limit.

 

So. Many. Options.

First, pick your crust. You can get our traditional hand-tossed crust, or if you’re gluten free, State & Allen has gluten free pizza crust just for you! Simply tell your server you are gluten free.

 

Next, pick the sauce. Go with the house red pizza sauce created with Texas tomatoes or choose something different. Each pizza is layered with mozzarella and your choice of red sauce, garlic oil, truffle béchamel, BBQ sauce, or pesto.

 

Lastly, pick the toppings. This part gets tricky because - well – there are just so many options. The Meaty Meat is a very popular favorite, or on the other end of the spectrum, order a fresh Margherita pizza. If you know how to build the perfect pizza, try your hand at layering your own ingredients. Artichokes, balsamic shallots, black olives, peppers, pineapple, pickled jalapenos – the possibilities are endless.
