State & Allen

Raise your glass if you’re loving the Spring weather!

Yep, we are too – and with a new season comes some changes to our drink menu.

At State & Allen Kitchen + Bar, having a well-stocked bar with a huge variety of craft beer on tap is one of our highest priorities. That’s why we evaluate our menu each season, incoproating new craft brews you possibly haven’t heard of – or bringing in seasonal microbrews to whet your whistle. Here are a few of our Dallas drafts, available now at State & Allen Kitchen + Bar in Dallas, Texas: 


Ace Space Blood Orange Craft Cider

Looking for a brew that pairs well with our Dallas brunch? Then this is it! This cider has that tangy, citrusy zest of a mimosa, complete with a little carbonation and a dry finish. If you want something fresh, this Blood Orange Craft is for you! 


Breckenridge Summer Pilsner

Hailed from the mountains of Colorado, you’ll feel ready for any adventure when you sip on this crisp Summer pilsner. We love that this Bohemian style pilsner is both floral and earthy, with a subtle spice and sweetness that balances perfectly with each sip. Best for sipping on our Dallas patio on a beautiful Spring day!

Founders Blushing Monk 

After dinner, order an ice cold glass of Founders Blushing Monk to finish off your meal. A dessert in and of itself, it’s loaded with berries. You’ll see those berries in its rich red hue and you’ll taste them with every sip. Pairs well with fruit, cheese, and desserts.


Oak Highlands Tipsy Goat

We love supporting local breweries and Oak Highlands has quickly become one of our favorites. Their Tipsy Goat is on tap here at State & Allen and we love the light hops of this beer combined with the malty nose, all wrapped up in a bright golden package.

Brewery Spotlight: Cedar Creek Brewery

State & Allen

If you are ever looking for a weekend roadtrip – just a short drive from Dallas, Texas – then consider an easy drive out to Cedar Creek Brewery in Seven Points, Texas.


Cedar Creek Brewery was founded in 2010 by a man in search of the perfect craft beer. Jim Elliott had recently moved to the area just southeast of Dallas and had the hardest time finding good, quality Texas craft beer. His solution? Brew some himself!


With a little hard work and ingenuity, Cedar Creek Brewery was born. Elliott brought on master brewer Damon Lewis, and between the two of them, the dream came to life. Using old dairy equipment, Cedar Creek began brewing amazing beer on a shoestring budget. What started as a very small operation in 2010 has blossomed in the last 5 years, gaining national recognition at the Great American Beer Festival, expanded into a larger operation, added a taproom for visitors, and so much more. 


If you drive out to Seven Points, you’ll enjoy the taproom complete with all the signature, small batch brews. And while you’re there, given the Plowboys Café a try, the in-house eatery that’s big on flavor and small town charm. Want to take some beer for the road? You’ll notice that all the beer is “bottled” in cans – not glass bottles. Cedar Creek does this to ensure quality first and foremost. Light and oxygen have a harder time entering the aluminum can than it does glass. Also, it’s more environmentally friendly and oh-so-much more portable for a trip to the lake.


State & Allen loves supporting this brewery because it’s got the “American Dream” written all over it! Not to mention, the beer is pretty darn good. One of our favorites is the Dankosaurus IPA – with hop flavors of citrus and pine and a strong malt backbone - and it’s now available on tap at State & Allen! Try Cedar Creek Brewery and other Dallas craft beers on tap at State & Allen. You never know what new beer you’ll fall in love with!

Craft Brew Spotlight: Audacity Brew House

State & Allen

If you’ve looked at State & Allen’s TapHunter site recently, then you’ve noticed a new beer on tap. A delicious, German beer called Repercussion from a little brewery in Denton, Texas called Audacity Brew House. State & Allen loves supporting our local breweries, and Audacity Brew House is one of our new favorites.

Scott Lindsey had a dream. A dream to bring something big and new to Denton. Something audacious.

He saw a gap in the craft brew market and jumped in with two feet, founding Audacity Brew House in 2013. The mission statement is simple and two-fold:

1.     Quality: Lindsey’s top priority is to create the highest quality craft beer around. Bringing in expert brewmaster Doug Smith was a big part of that vision, bringing with him years of experience in professional brewing and fermentation from all around the United States. If there is one thing you will get with Audacity, it’s delicious, high quality beer.

2.     Community: Being a local Denton guy and UNT graduate, Lindsey wanted to give back to the community, so much so that he’s made it a central part of his company mission statement. Audacity Brew House gives back to the community by participating in Serve Denton, Health Services of North Texas, and the Mayors Day of Concern for the Hungry, just to name a few.

The result is audacious beer.

If you’re ever up for a roadtrip to Denton, Texas, you can visit the brew house, complete with a tap room perfect for hanging out, playing a few board games, sitting on the patio on a nice Fall night, and just having a beer that you can’t get anywhere else. Brewery tours are available throughout the week as well.

If you can’t get up to Denton, then you know that your favorite Dallas neighborhood restaurant and bar now has Audacity’s Repercussion on tap! Join us this week for a glass of Dallas craft beer and an amazing dinner at State & Allen Kitchen + Bar!
