Lakewood Brewing Company

One can’t talk about stouts in DFW without talking about Lakewood. Temptress — the base beer and the multiple flavor variations it produces, including peanut butter and salted caramel — is the most popular stout in the region. It also has seasonal beers in virtually every style, with a taproom in Garland open seven days a week. In the newly added-on kitchen, guests can enjoy dishes including salads and wraps and hearty comfort foods such as barbecue brisket sandwiches (with meat sourced from the nearby Intrinsic Smokehouse) and flatbread pizzas.
