At Lone Star Taps & Caps, you will get a one of a kind experience including flights from 50 different taps of craft beers and ciders from all over the world. Taps & Caps was the first retail establishment to offer growlers to go north of highway 635.

Father and son duo Sam & Rick Ali first established Lone Star Beverages in Carrollton, TX 8 years ago this month (2006). Being avid fans of craft beer and passionate about sharing their experience with others, they realized a need for a bottle shop in North Texas that not only had access to a great variety of craft beer, but also provided unparalleled customer service and product/industry knowledge.

Throughout the years, Lone Star Beverages has been recognized as one the premier bottle shops in Texas from several sources such as BeerAdvocate (highest rated store in Texas), Ratebeer.com, and Yelp and has been featured on several websites like Dallas Morning News, Dallas Observer, and AmericanCraftBeer.com. As independent purveyors of craft beer in Texas since 2006, Lone Star Beverages has focused on providing North Dallas with a wide variety of local, national, and international craft beers.

For Sam & Rick, Lone Star Taps & Caps is merely a continuation of the journey that began nearly a decade ago. With over 50 craft beers on tap, patrons will be able to enjoy fresh beer on-site or to-go. Taps & Caps will also have over 500 unique cold cans and bottles to choose from, allowing patrons to create their own personalized beer package. Their mission is to provide an un-compromised craft beer experience to the community by building a craft beer exclusive establishment for North Dallas.

After being at the forefront of the area’s craft beer boom with their original store focused extensively on craft beer, Rick & Sam felt they are ready to turn the page to the next chapter and open their dream bottle shop that will provide locals with a unique environment offering a taste of all things craft beer, including growlers, pints, flights, packaged beer, and more! With over nine years of experience in the retail business, their relationships with distributors and breweries will bring a plethora of events, special release brews, and the like.
