Game time at Beckley BrewHouse

For such a small place, the restaurant/bar has become a hub for sports fans with its TVs, comfy couches and impressive menu.

People packed into Beckley BrewHouse to watch the USA team play during the FIFA World Cup. “It was standing room only,” co-owner Ron Wills says. For such a small place, the restaurant/bar has become a hub for sports fans with three LCD HD TVs and comfy couches — not the mention the impressive menu including chips and salsa and the blue cheese burger with sweet potato fries. Cool off at the bar with a cold beer, cherry limeade or the more adventurous espresso martini, which combines espresso, Absolute vodka and Kahlua. “It’s a very cool neighborhood hangout,” Wills says. The crack house-turned-brew house opened in 2006 as something of a gateway to the bustling Bishop Arts District. Wills says that rather than competing with surrounding business, they help each other. “The rising tide floats all the boats, and that’s what Oak Cliff is all about right now.”
