Beer Gallery

Press Box Grill has the finest beer selection in downtown Dallas featuring 36 beers on draft and another 40 bottle selections. Here is our current list of available draft and bottled beers. The selection undergoes constant evolution for several reasons:

  • A certain beer may become temporarily unavailable because of situations with an importer, local distributor, or the brewer themselves
  • As we find new beer we like, less popular ones may be cycled out to make room on the tap wall
  • Addition of seasonal beer (e.g., Maibocks, Oktoberfests, Christmas ales) may require temporary retirement of other ones.

The best way to know what beers we have is to visit the gallery and see for yourself. With those caveats in mind, here is a snapshot of our current draught selection. They are arranged by country of origin.

BEER 101 – KNOWLEDGE & EDUCATION

Beer types

All beer can be classified as either a lager or an ale.

  • The differences begin during the brewing process. Whether the beer is
    an ale or lager is defined by the type of yeast used in the brew and the
    temperature
    at which fermentation takes place.
  • Ales are brewed with top-fermenting yeast which allows for rapid fermentation
    at warmer temperatures;
  • Lagers are brewed with bottom-fermenting yeast which ferments more slowly
    and at colder temperatures.

Lagers

  • Lager means to store or put aside.
  • This beer is made with bottom yeast, so-called because it flocculates to the bottom of the vat.
  • Traditionally bottom yeast will ferment at cold temperatures less than 10 deg C. Now fermentation takes place at 12 to 18 deg C. This cold or deep fermentation allows the malt and hops to assert their fine flavours.
  • Lager tends to be paler, drier and less alcoholic than ales.
  • Pilsener or pils beer originated in Bohemia where brewers first found beer that was over-wintered or lagered improved if stored in cool caves and kept on ice.
  • German lagers, including beers such as bock and marzen, are made according to the Bavarian Purity Laws of 1516 to ensure the beer is all-malt (no sugar) and hopped with bitter and aromatic varieties (noble hops).
  • Some German-style beers are described as “helles” meaning pale or blonde. Pale beers grew in popularity following the adoption of the glass for drinking in the 19th Century.

Ales

  • Ales are brewed with top-fermenting yeasts at temperatures from 15 to
    25 deg C.
  • Ales are matured for shorter periods and at warmer temperatures.
  • Ales include a wide range of beer styles from porters and stouts to pale
    ales and wheat beer.
  • Generally, ales are higher in alcohol, more robust and complex than
    lagers.
