It was a long road for entrepreneurs Cary Hodson and Casey Vincent, but Saturday, the duo celebrated the grand opening of the Intrinsic Smokehouse and Brewery in Garland.

Craft beer drinkers flooded the venue located on the town's downtown square for a day's worth of cold beverages and house-smoked meats. Intrinsic's owners hope the restaurant and bar will help revitalize the area, and opening weekend was a great opportunity to see the potential, with live music and a packed house.
