"The Smallest Brewery in Dallas" - Four Bullets Brewery

Razzoo’s Cajun Café isn’t your typical, run-of-the-mill chain restaurant. We don’t carry the same stale beer options everyone else does. Sure – we’re going to have Budweiser, Miller, Coors, etc, but we love offering you something different. Texas craft beers that you’ve never heard of. Beers you can brag about to friends. Craft beer that just tastes good.

 

One of our latest discoveries: Four Bullets Brewery in Richardson, Texas. Hailed the “smallest brewery in Dallas” and the “first and only brewery in Richardson,” Four Bullets Brewery is relatively new to the craft brew scene. Opened in 2015, this charming little brewery is already stealing our affections with beer that’s big on taste.

 

Cozy, Funky, Fun

 

Reason #1 we love this place – it’s as funky and fun as a trip to Razzoo’s Cajun Café! Brewmaster Andrew Smeeton – a native Englishman - wanted Four Bullets Brewery to have the feel of an old English pub, a place where friends can gather and memories can be made. Find a seat in this charming little dive along Highway 75 and Arapaho and spend hours drinking your favorite beer, playing a little Jenga, or watching the game on one of their big screen TVs.

 

About the Beer

 

The name “four bullets” is a poker term referring to the four aces in poker, and all of the beers follow suit by having poker names themselves. Don’t let the gimmicky names fool you – craft beer aficionados can rejoice that this beer is legit. Give the Two Pair Pale Ales a try and you won’t be disappointed. Another favorite: the Royal Flush Red Ale is smooth, lightly hopped, and easy for just about anyone to drink and enjoy.

 

Head into your local Razzoo’s Cajun Café and ask about their selection of Texas craft beer from Four Bullets Brewery and others. Each Razzoo’s location is unique, offering local craft beer and tried-and-true favorites. See you for happy hour, lunch, dinner, or late night at Razzoo’s!

Craft Brew Spotlight: Tupps Brewery

A little over a year ago, a dream came to life for two North Texas compadres. They’d been brewing beer in a garage for about 6 years and decided to make it a business, opening Tupps Brewery adjacent to the historic Cotton Mill in downtown McKinney, Texas.

 

We love everything about this little brewery up in McKinney. Good ole boys Keith Lewis and Tupper Patnode founded the brewery with a few tenets in mind:

 

1.   Trust your senses: When brewing a new batch of Texas craft beer, Keith and Tupper always trust their eyes, nose, and mouth above all. Does it look, smell, and taste good? If not – it’s out. If so, then they know it’s a good beer, pure and simple. Then and only then do they rely on fancy, state-of-the-art equipment to perfect the quality and consistency of the beer.

2.   Beer is better enjoyed with company: At Razzoo’s, we completely agree! Tupps Brewery is a family friendly, dog friendly, super laid back type of place where you can kick your feet up and stay awhile. The brewery has a huge patio and taproom, reminiscent of a simpler time when life was slower. Feel free to write your name on the wall, put your feet on the tables, and just enjoy.

3.   Embrace your heritage: Tupps Brewery is proud to be a part of the heritage of Texas, built adjacent to the old Cotton Mill in downtown McKinney. It’s this heritage that inspires great new beers, while sticking to tradition and old time favorites as well.

 

If you have a free weekend, take a drive up to McKinney, Texas and tell our friends at Tupps Brewery we say howdy. In the meantime, stop by your local Razzoo’s Cajun Café and ask your server for a full list of Texas craft beers.
