luck luckapalooza 2015

Jeff, Daniel and Ned


The jokers at LUCK have done it again with their first annual Luckapalooza concert series and beer event in conjunction with restaurant neighbors Souk and Chino Chinatown. Souk was doing half off of their always popular hookah and drink specials while Chino Chinatown, well, not sure what their specials were but they were popping too. The real magic, however, was happening over at LUCK with beer flowing like wine and music dancing into patrons' ears.

Like their first anniversary party, there were a few new/unopened breweries pouring their beer for thirsty beer enthusiasts. Bitter Sisters, Canaille Brewing and Oak Highlands Brewery were among those.

Oak Highlands from the Lake Highlands area was out of beer by 4:30pm (~60 gallons, ya bunch of lushes!) so I didn't get a chance to try any from them but they were obviously wildly popular. They're hoping to be open within the next couple of months with a canning line and a tap room with a lot of one-off beers pouring due to their 50 gallon pilot brewing system.

Bitter Sisters out of Addison is a new kid on the block of the Dallas beer scene that just started distributing their beers like their delicious Knock Out Imperial Irish Red. I also enjoyed their dry and hoppy Blonde Lager.

Canaille Brewing out of Rockwall is a brewery that I was not very familiar with but I'm glad I got to try their offerings. I was most impressed with their Black IPA, which had a more roasty profile than hop forward, White IPA and their Coffee Porter which was brewed and dry hopped with a local Rockwall coffee roaster. The 10.5% abv was dangerously hidden while the coffee aromas and flavors were dominating the profile.


LUCK also tapped cult favorites like Lakewood Bourbon Barrel and Sin Mint Temtress, Revolver 2014 Mullet Cutter and Fracker Barrel One. I hope they make this a quarterly event as people seemed to have a great time with the beautiful Dallas skyline glistening in the background. Cheers!
