Almost every restaurant in Lubbock has some type of bar, but we wanted to share some of the most underrated places to get a good beer. We haven’t been to every single place in town, so please share your thoughts with us!
120 W Loop 289
Everyday: 11am – Midnight
The Drafthouse is one of our most favorite places in town and most of that can be attributed to their bar. Dark and rich, strong and bold, crisp and refreshing, hoppy… there is a beer for everyone. Even non-beer drinkers may find a beer/liquor mix interesting. The taps are on a rotation and there are seasonal selections. Check out the Geeks Who Drink trivia nights on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 8pm.

A good place for unique food made from fresh and local ingredients. Several beers on tap and even more bottled/canned. There is a selection of Texas beers, ales, porters, ciders, IPAs, and more. Check out the drink menu here. We really enjoy this place for soccer games or a casual night out.
Triple J Chophouse
1807 Buddy Holly Ave
Monday-Thursday: 11am – 10pm, Friday and Saturday: 11:00pm – midnight, Closed Sunday
This place is cool because they brew their own beer. Stout, ale, IPA, Porter, Kolsch, wheat, Raider Red, and seasonal beers. Check out some of their brews here. The brews on tap will be different throughout the year. A very large menu (steaks, chicken, etc…) This place gets very busy right after work on Friday and is steady on Saturdays.

Capital Pizza came on the scene a few years ago and are most known for their great gourmet pizza and unique crust. However, most people do not know that Capital Pizza is home to over 100 craft beers. There is a variety of Texas beers and diverse selection of sours, stouts, ales, etc…
Everyday: 11am – 2am
Sure, it may be a little collegiate, but it is not called Cricket’s DRAFTHOUSE for nothing. There is a wall of beer taps just waiting for you. Again, there is variety of beers on draft to fit every taste. Typical bar food with pool tables and some other fun games. We suggest going early evening or on weekdays for a more low key experience.
