Wait, is this a bar or a ’60s psychedelic band? This Allston bar is actually named after a culturally rich section of Dallas, and its smallish space belies a big and varied beer selection. There are 28 beers on tap and at least 100 bottles to choose from. Staff members are known for their IPA, Hefeweizen, and porter IQs, so ask for recommendations if you can’t decide.
Besides the beer: Enjoy a taste of Austin in Boston and hop over to Lone Star Taco Bar, which is located right next door (and by the same owners). Enjoy a few tacos before indulging in adult beverages.
