Stalwart beer bar Strangeways to close in Dallas

The local craft beer scene will soon lose a little bit more of its character, as Strangeways has announced it will close its long-time location on N. Fitzhugh Ave. in Dallas.

Founded by the brother and sister team of Eric Sanchez and Rocio Ildemaro, Strangeways made its debut just over 12 years ago in August 2011. The pub quickly established itself as a go-to locale for rare and obscure craft beer offerings, so much so that it was recognized in 2013 as one of America's 100 best beer bars by Draft Magazine. This accolade repeated each year through 2016.

Popular attractions at Strangeways included annual installments of Barrel Week and Sour Week (both instituted in 2015), occasions during which all 40 of its taps were dedicated to the best barrel-aged or wild and sour beers available in Dallas-Fort Worth and beyond.

A social media post simply stating "it was not meant to be" likely alluded to a failed attempt by the owners to purchase the building Strangeways has called home from their landlord - as reported in an article published by the Dallas Observer.
