It's a misconception that all the craft beer action takes place in Dallas and Fort Worth. About half of the area's microbreweries reside in the suburbs, and there are a growing number of bars and restaurants where suburbanites can indulge in the craft revolution. Here are 10 places where every week is beer week.

Alamo Drafthouse

Alamo Drafthouse (Richardson)

True to the name, craft beer is a cornerstone of Richardson's indie movie theater. Drinkers can always find something to love, whether it's a beer-and-movie pairing or a happy hour bellied up to the bar at Glass Half Full taproom onsite. The bar boasts 32 draft taps that often rotate offerings, meaning drinkers can find seasonal favorites and special releases. Dying to catch a flick? No sweat -- waiters can bring everything available in the taproom to your seat, including mixed drinks and beer cocktails. drafthouse.com.

BFF Asian Grill and Bar

BFF Asian Grill and Sports Bar

Who said sushi doesn't pair well with craft beer? This massive Arlington sports bar and restaurant combats that notion with 120 draft taps and an extensive bottle/can list. Most of the options, such as imports and domestics, don't change, but crafts often rotate between seasonal and popular offerings. If having that many options is overwhelming, consider a flight. BFF's location near Six Flags Over Texas, Globe Life Park and AT&T Stadium makes it an ideal pre-game destination. bffasiangrill.com.

Fillmore Pub

The Fillmore Pub

Nestled along the cobblestone streets of downtown Plano, Fillmore Pub satisfies in ambiance and beer selection, so much so we named it one of D-FW's best beer bars in 2014. It has 13 taps, four of which rotate brews, and a bottle list that's just shy of 70 options. The bar also offers classic beer combinations such as the Snakebite (Harp and Strongbow) and Black Velvet (Guinness and Strongbow), as well as liquor. thefillmorepub.com.

Flying Saucer Draught Emporium

The mothership may reside in Fort Worth, but its satellites in Addison and Garland are equally worth a visit. Flying Saucer's selections are top notch, with more than 80 draft taps and 100-plus bottles to choose from. Each location has its own vibe. In Garland, the bar and restaurant offers stunning views overlooking Lake Ray Hubbard. Up north, the venue's hallmark is an indoor terrace with skylights and hanging plants that partially remove patrons from Addison's otherwise concrete jungle. Both honor UFO Club credentials. beerknurd.com.

FM Smoke House

FM Smoke House

Follow your nose to this Irving beer and barbecue spot, where aromas of burning hickory and pecan wood add to the ambiance. The Lone Star State is branded into the fabric of the business, from the rustic-chic accents to the extensive bourbon and beer lists. Texas crafts reign supreme across the bar's 42 taps, though you'll be able to find national staples such as San Diego's Ballast Point Brewing Co., too. fmsmokehouse.com.

The Ginger Man

The Ginger Man was hip to specialty beer before most of Texas. Established in 1985, it's one of Texas' longest-running beer bars. The good news: You're never far from one in D-FW. The original opened in Houston, followed by Dallas (1992), Austin (1994), Fort Worth (2007), Plano (2009), Southlake (2012) and Lakewood (2014). Each location has its own personality wrapped in the Ginger Man's signature wood-heavy pub atmosphere. The tap and bottle selection focuses heavily on imports as well as craft beer from local and national breweries. thegingerman.com.

Holy Grail Pub

Holy Grail Pub

Don't judge this Plano craft beer staple by its façade. Behind the big wooden doors of this strip-mall bar sits a warm space with plenty to drink. Cozy up to the bar to enjoy one of its 100-plus draft and bottled beers, or take it to the breezeway-shaded patio. Holy Grail shows a lot of love for local beers, so patrons can usually find the trendiest new releases here. Another selling point: the food, which is both approachable and affordable. holygrailpub.com.

Lone Star Taps & Caps

Lone Star Taps and Caps

This Lewisville hot spot, from the owners of the locally acclaimed bottle shop Lone Star Beverages, is part bar and part retail store. It specializes in growlers, glass vessels filled from one of the bar's 50 taps for patrons to take home. Though it lacks ambiance, there's also a small area where drinkers can imbibe a pint or flight. Looking for something novel? Go with the Barely Legal, a flight featuring 18 draft samples (requires at least three people to order). tapsandcaps.com.

Ron's Place/Ron's Corner Tavern

Put these two side by side and it's obvious they're cut from the same cloth. Both inhabit intimate spaces that are decorated with thousands of vintage cans collected on the owners' Uncle Ron's beer-drinking travels around the world. (That's who the pair of bars is named for.) The Place in Addison opened summer 2015, so it doesn't have the loved, worn-in feeling that the Corner Tavern in Bedford does. But each one sports a draft wall of rotating taps, as well as a hefty selection of bottled and canned beers. ronsaddison.com; ronstavern.com.

What's on Tap

What's on Tap

What's on Tap, Highland Village's first growler beer bar, opened earlier this year. It's a quaint space with a commendable beer list; the 36 taps rotate through local craft staples and seasonals, as well as a handful of national brands. The bar serves pints and flight for those who want to stay and sip. It also has a small merch section with glassware, brewery swag and, of course, growlers. whatsontapbeer.com.
