bar hoppin in dallas - whole foods spirit of '76

Spirit of '76 coaster
People always say that becoming an adult is no fun, that it's full of responsibilities like paying bills, work and grocery shopping. Thanks to Whole Foods, one of those aspects of adulthood just became a lot more fun. Not only can you shop for vegan friendly, stress free organic meats and crackers, you can now sit back and enjoy a local brewski (or vino for that matter) in the store itself. The Whole Foods Spirit of '76 in Addison offers 25 taps (some of which are for wine), many of which are local options from Community Brewing, Peticolas, Revolver, Lakewood and Armadillo Ale Works.

You remember in college when you would go out to the bars and then stumble to the nearest Jimmy John's to gorge yourself in post bar foot longs with fresh bread, then make your way to the nearest burrito stand for dessert? That was just me? Well, this is kind of like that. After a couple of drinks at the Spirit of '76 bar, every single aisle becomes a snack haven with foods that seem to glow. Do I really need a pre-made platter of assorted artisan cheeses and Asian dumplings? No, but damn it sure sounds good! Oh shit, don't forget the organic cookie dough!

I mean seriously, how can you not be satisfied with being able to drink the beautiful bitterness of Peticolas' Velvet Hammer in a grocery store? In addition to the rotating taps, they also do tap takeovers, which I was lucky enough to be shopping there during one with Lakewood Brewing. Side-by-side comparison of The Temptress? Check. Pils? Check. Lion's Share? Check. Flights are only $7 with your choice of any four beers.
