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!
