lone star beverages? meet lone star taps & caps

The best bottle shop in Dallas is becoming a big sibling in the fall with the much desired addition to the family, a growler shop by the name of Lone Star Taps and Caps. Father/son duo Sam and Rick Ali have fast become THE bottle shop destination in the North Texas area. Lone Star Taps & Caps will stay in the North Dallas area, more specifically, 121 and Josey (near Top Golf and Target). Perfect! Since you'll be able to sit in the bar and have a beer, that two hour wait at Top Golf won't seem so bad now.

Lone Star Taps and Caps will also feature 50 taps...count them 50 taps!

Exactly how I feel Lone Starr.

When talking with Rick about this latest adventure, he was genuinely excited. He's truly in it to help the craft beer community grow and to help educate the public. His number one priority at Taps & Caps is quality over quantity. He was thinking about more taps at one point, but after a certain point quality can become almost impossible to maintain, especially for a small growler shop. I love Lone Star Beverages, it has become one of my favorite places to go for great beer and great service. I can't wait for this to open.

From the Press Release:
Coming this Fall, Lone Star Taps & Caps will be opening in Lewisville, just off Highway 121 and Josey, right near Target and across from Top Golf.

At Lone Star Taps & Caps, you will get a one of a kind experience including flights from 50 different taps of craft beers and ciders from all over the world as Taps & Caps will be the first retail establishment to offer growlers to go north of highway 635.

Father and son duo Sam & Rick Ali first established Lone Star Beverages in Carrollton, TX 8 years ago this month (2006). Being avid fans of craft beer and passionate about sharing their experience with others, they realized a need for a bottle shop in North Texas that not only had access to a great variety of craft beer, but also provided unparalleled customer service and product/industry knowledge.

Throughout the years, Lone Star Beverages has been recognized as one of the premier bottle shops in Texas from several sources such as BeerAdvocate (highest rated store in Texas),, and Yelp and has been features on several websites like Dallas Morning News, Dallas Observer, and

As independent purveyors of craft beer in Texas since 2006, Lone Star Beverages has focused on providing North Dallas with a wide variety of local, national and international craft beers.

For Sam & Rick, Lone Star Taps & Caps is merely a continuation of the journey that began nearly a decade ago. With over 50 craft beers on tap, patrons will be able to enjoy fresh beer on-site or to-go. Taps & Caps will also have over 500 unique cold cans and bottles to choose from, allowing patrons an uncompromised craft beer experience to the community by building a craft beer exclusive establishment for North Dallas.


  1. It was nice to read this press release. Hope to see more content here, friend.

  2. Since 1940, Green Bay has had 11 players intercept 25 or more passes in their careers. Over that time, just three have gotten to a particular quarterback six or more times. Not surprisingly, all three have been inducted into the Packers Hall of Fame. Two of those have been enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio. benefit beverages co packer
