Beer lovers of East Dallas now have a new watering hole: White Rock Abbey opened over the weekend, just in time to host post-marathon drinkers.
Owner Weylan McAnally, a beer-loving pharmacist who wanted to open a business where his customers would actually be happy to see him, is keen on showcasing local beers: More than half of the 40 taps are locally sourced, with selections from Deep Ellum Brewing Co., Revolver, Cedar Creek, Rahr, Franconia, Four Corners, Lakewood, and Firewheel, plus fellow Texans Saint Arnold, 512, Real Ale, Leprechaun, and Live Oak, and a handful of imports to round out the list.
Besides beer there's also a menu of snacks like soft pretzels and carnitas tostadas, and sandwiches; pizzas (including a shepherd's pie version) are on the horizon as soon as they get their oven in gear.
White Rock Abbey is open 11 a.m. to 2 a.m. daily.
