With Dallas’ craft beer scene exploding, more diners are on the lookout for restaurants with extensive beer menus. Check out these must-try restaurants the next time you're craving a meal with a side of suds.

  • Goodfriend Beer Garden & Burger House

    Goodfriend keeps at least five local beers on rotation, serves up 22-ounce bombers, and has an expertly curated list of domestic and foreign suds. Friendly, in-the-know bartenders and a convivial atmosphere keep regulars coming back and newbies wondering why they didn’t find Goodfriend sooner.

    1154 Peavy Rd.; 214-324-3335

  • The Blind Butcher

    Lower Greenville has embraced this chill tavern, not just for its craft beer list but also for a cheery vibe and the housemade sausages and poutines. If you can't snag a seat inside, try the covered patio out back.

    1919 Greenville Ave.; 214-887-0000

  • The Common Table

    A hopshead favorite, The Common Table offers an outstanding, varied beer list and a terrific menu with pairing options. Go all in and order the Oskar Blues Beer Can Chicken with your brew.

    2917 Fairmount St.; 214-880-7414

  • The Libertine

    A hipster haven in East Dallas, this Belgian gastropub has a decidedly Euro-style. That means dozens of bottled beers from around the world and a rotating selection on draft. The restaurant’s monthly pairing dinners are by appointment.

    2101 Greenville Ave.; 214-824-7900

  • LUCK

    Trinity Groves’ very own beer kitchen keeps 40 beers on hand, which inspires its food menu (beer ice cream, soft pretzels with beer cheese fondue). Expect local options and a rotating slate of seasonals. Flights are themed with names like Gateway Drug: Introduction to Craft Beer and Heavy Hitters: Everything’s Bigger in NTX.

    3011 Gulden Ln.; 469-250-0679

  • Meddlesome Moth

    The casually stylish atmosphere fits its Design District location and makes beer drinking fashionable, especially with less-common options like the Pauwel Kwak and Cigar City/De Proef Tropical Tripel. Flights include five samples from the considerable list of drafts. Sister property Bird Cafe offers a similar food and beer menu in Fort Worth.

    1621 Oak Lawn Ave.; 214-628-7900

  • Holy Grail Pub

    Not only is the extensive beer selection at this North Plano bar and grill populated with top-notch labels, but the pub keeps fans returning with tappings of new and limited-edition beers every week. Holy Grail goes beyond burgers, serving a popular ghost pepper chili, beer brats and blackened fish tacos.

    ​8240 Preston Road; 972-377-6633

  • FM Smoke House

    Beer and barbecue are two peas in a pod, and the Las Colinas smokehouse offers 25-plus beers on tap and in bottles. Most Wednesdays, you'll find a special tapping, with souvenir glasses for those who buy the showcased pint.

    ​660 Walnut Ridge Dr.; 972-751-6633
