What makes it the best?
- It's 15 minutes from our house.
- They focus on local beers.
- They have a ton of beers on tap.
Here's how Lone Star Taps and Caps works.
After entering, you're slightly overwhelmed by massive digital screens displaying everything currently on tap. The screens give the name of the beer, the brewery, flavor profile and a neat graphic showing how much remains in the keg.
Underneath the screens is a cup of write on-wipe off markers and laminated order forms. There's also an ample supply of growlers (32 oz and 64 oz) and crowlers (32 oz) if you didn't bring your own.
Mark what you want on the form, along with your name.
Then hand it over at the counter. Pay or open a tab.
Why open a tab? You can order a pint to enjoy or a beer flight to sample what's available. There was a large crowd doing both the afternoon I stopped in.
The line was out the door, too, which shows how popular Lone Star is. I'm not surprised - it's our new favorite stop if we want to pick up a fill for the weekend.
