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.

5 Little Known Facts about Grey Goose Vodka - State & Allen

State & Allen

Grey Goose vodka is one of our favorite spirits here at State & Allen. We like it so much that we even dedicated an entire cocktail menu to Grey Goose mixology, a menu our bartenders carefully curated to enhance the flavors in Grey Goose itself.

 

In the world of premium vodka, Grey Goose is known as ultra-premium. But do you know much more than that? Let State & Allen fill you in on a few secrets of the Grey Goose brand. (Feel free to use this knowledge to impress your friends.)

 

1.  100% Produced in France – for Americans

 

Grey Goose has only been on the market since 1997 when an American named Sidney Frank had an idea for a high-end vodka brand. He wanted Americans to see his vodka as ultra-premium; therefore, he set up all operations for the brand in France – a place Americans see as affluent and luxurious. To this day, each and every bottle of Grey Goose is produced in France, and so are all of the ingredients and packaging.

 

2.  French Maitre de Chai, Francois Thibault, Runs the Show

 

Don’t be fooled. Grey Goose isn’t a faux French company. The cellar master, Francois Thibault, earned his stripes making Cognac in France. When he came on board at Grey Goose, he designed the entire production process, all done the French way for authenticity you can taste.

 

3.  All the Grey Goose in the World is Produced by 20 People

 

The operation in La Vallee de l’Oise is small, with about 20 employees total! All the better for tasting, as each batch of Grey Goose is taste tested before it ever leaves the facility. Employees take turns in the tasting room, giving their seal of approval. Sample premium vodka all day? Where do we sign up?!

 

4.  Wheat Based for a Smoother Texture

 

There are many different fermented materials that could be used in vodka – potatoes, barley, rye, grapes, etc. Grey Goose chooses to use wheat sourced from France’s breadbasket region. The wheat sown is soft winter wheat, and Grey Goose argues that their vodka has a softer, smoother texture given the use of wheat vs. other fermented grains.

 

5.  No Artificial Flavors

 

Did you know that even the flavored Grey Goose vodkas use real fruit juice to create the flavors? Not to mention, all of that fruit – except the oranges from Florida – come from France. Would you expect anything less?

 

All this talk of Grey Goose vodka has us in the mood for a cocktail! Join us this week at State & Allen - the best bar in Uptown Dallas - and ask for our Grey Goose Mixology menu!

 

Cocktails that Scream Summer - State & Allen

State & Allen

With summer just weeks away, who isn’t dreaming of vacations in the Caribbean, concerts at dusk, and long days at the lake?!

 

Even if you can’t get to the beach anytime soon, State & Allen wants you to feel those summer vibes with some of our amazing summery cocktails. Handcrafted with only the finest liquors, State & Allen offers a variety of options infused with exotic flavors. Check out a few of our summertime favorites!

 

·      Summertime in the City: Welp. The name pretty much says it all. And this isn’t your typical summer beer type drink either. Branch out and give this tasty cocktail a try, made with Basil Haydens Bourbon, a splash of Amaro Lucano, St. Germaine, and lemon bitters. If you like whiskey with a fresh twist, this one’s for you!

·      Fresh & Spicy: We are really digging the trend toward the “margarita with a twist.” Order some Tex Mex, pass on the margarita, and order the “Fresh & Spicy” instead. It’s a little Herradura tequila mixed with lime juice, cilantro, Cointreau, and then a little Ancho Reyes to kick it up a notch.

·      Born on the 4th of July: Watermelon is the essence of a summer picnic, and the centerpiece of this refreshing drink. Pair American Revolution vodka, watermelon syrup, lime juice, basil, and a little soda, and you’ve got the tastes of summer in a glass.

·      Caribbean Star: If you can’t get to the beach, why not just close your eyes and pretend with this tropical cocktail. Sweet and simple, it’s coconut rum, Pernod, and peach nectar all in one delicious drink.

 

Join us this week for Dallas drink specials on these and other great cocktails. And don’t forget about our wide selection of beer, wine, and spirits sure to please even the most discerning patron.
