The Great Debate: Which Texas Bourbon is Your Favorite?

State & Allen

We’re got pride the size of Texas when it comes to supporting our own.

 

Bourbon distilleries have been popping up across the great state of Texas, and we feel it’s our duty in life to try them all. Our team carefully curates a list of our favorites and then we offer those to you in our Dallas restaurant. So dare we ask… which Texas bourbon is your favorite? Here are a few we offer at State & Allen to jog your memory:

 

TX Bourbon

You can’t really go wrong with the award-winning flavors of TX Bourbon or TX Bourbon Whiskey. While almost every distillery in the country uses commercial yeast in their product, TX Bourbon uses a proprietary strain that they hand picked from a pecan in North Texas! On the rocks or neat, this bourbon delivers delicious undertones of caramel, cinnamon, and fruit.

 

Witherspoon

Deep in the heart of Old Town Lewisville, Texas you’ll find a distillery that specializes in the craft of small batch bourbon. Best enjoyed neat, this 100 proof whiskey packs a Texas-sized punch!

 

Balcones

The original Texas whiskey, Balcones distills all their whiskey on site, never reselling anyone else’s whiskey and never using barrels that are sourced from other distilleries. We carry 6 delicious Balcones whiskies, including the Balcones Rumble Cask Reserve, which is only released once every calendar year.

 

Herman Marshall

Herman Marshall is distilled right here in Dallas, Texas! We carry 3 different Herman Marshall Bourbons, including the Herman Marshall Rye – the best Texas rye! Here’s an insider tip: order this one with an ice cube, as it will open the flavor of the rye and release hints of vanilla.

What’s New on the State & Allen Brunch Menu?

State & Allen

State & Allen’s weekend brunch is an Uptown Dallas hotspot, and it’s easy to understand why.

 

Folks love sleeping in, then stopping by for brunch and drinks on the patio. It’s a great chance to catch up on the week with friends – and feel free to bring your four-legged pals too because our patio is dog friendly!  

 

The State & Allen Brunch has been a Dallas favorite for some time now, but it doesn’t mean we let the menu get stale! Recently we added some delicious new Dallas brunch offerings that are sure to impress:

 

Pulled Pork Migas

If it’s TexMex you crave – all day, everyday – then take a chance on our delicious migas! Avocado, black beans, corn pico, queso fresco, crema, and tomatillo sauce and carefully folded in with eggs and tortilla chips for a south-of-the-border treat. Pair it with a mimosa, and you’re all set!

 

Sweet Potato Pancakes

A heartier – and healthier – version of the original favorite, our sweet potato pancakes are drizzled in fresh agave maple syrup and a dollop of Greek yogurt cream cheese. Apple chicken sausage is served on the side for the perfect balance of sweet and savory.

 

Breakfast Pizza

We’re a fan of pizza for breakfast – even if it’s just cold leftovers from the fridge – but this version tops cold pizza any day. Topped with ham, bacon, mozzarella, cheddar, corn pico, avocado, and eggs, it’s the perfect pizza for breakfast.

 

Don’t forget to order a House Bloody Mary, Mimosa, Screwdriver, or Greyhound for just $3 each to accompany your meal! Bloody Mary Bar is just $5 and lets you create your own with an array of delicious toppings.

 

Come on in to State & Allen this weekend and enjoy the best brunch in Uptown Dallas! Brunch is served from 10am – 3pm each Saturday and Sunday, and we can’t wait to see you then!
