After spending nearly a decade producing some of the region’s top beer festivals, Civil Pour is our year-round outlet for our creative passions, coffee and beer. We strive to pour coffee and beer in unconventional methods, that yield the best quality product. We believe that our guests will recognize the difference between us, and the average coffee shop or beer bar.


Looking for the best coffee in Dallas? Look no further. We’re nerdy about this stuff. Whether that’s the best cup of pour-over coffee, or our signature house latte (The Warlock – chocolate, housemade vanilla, Vietnamese cinnamon, and a pinch of cayenne pepper), the choices are up to you.

We’re constantly refining our process, and we’re never too proud to change our offerings. We continue doing it today, after 5+ years in operation. Here are just a few features you can expect at Civil Pour:

  • Water that’s filtered 7 times, for perfect coffee brewing.
  • A rotating cast of coffee roasters, hand-selected by us. Less than 10% make the grade.
  • Pour-over coffee that’s the same, every time, using our PourSteady brewer.
  • A creative selection of hot and cold coffee curations, tested and re-tested in-house.
  • A custom espresso blend (Peace Treaty), carefully refined MANY times to our specs, roasted by our friends at Red Rooster Coffee Roasters.

Civil Pour is also a 25-tap, constantly rotating beer bar. We love craft beer, and we’ve been working in and around the beer industry since 2008. This place is the culmination of our knowledge gathering over the years.

Here are a few features that set us apart from other beer bars:

  • A hand-selected tapwall from our team of experienced industry veterans. Rare, seasonal, best-of-style, and many that are only available on draft.
  • Perfect beer gas that’s a blend of 70/30 CO2/Nitrogen for a smooth pour every time. Most bars use CO2 only, but nitro adds a smooth, creamy body.
  • Tap lines that are cleaned every 3 weeks, using methods *80 times* more effective than traditional methods.
  • Take home any beer on our tap wall in a growler or a 16oz can (crowler).

Panini Sandwiches

Any great beer bar must also serve great food. Our plan was never to be a restaurant, but inspired by our travels, we came across a panini sandwich program that impressed us. To curate our menu, we hired local chef Chad Burnett to create the menu, plating guide, and source the best ingredients.

We were also on the hunt for Cuban sandwiches and traveled from Florida to California in search of the best. Our chef sourced pulled pork from Pecan Lodge, the best imported Italian Tasso ham, and stone ground mustard for our Texas take on the best Cuban sandwich we can make.

Here’s a little bit more about our sandwich program:

  • Hand-selected, and house-sliced daily, meats and cheeses.
  • Ingredients that are locally sourced whenever possible.
  • Made-to-order sandwiches, with melty cheese, fresh meats, and produce.
  • Vegetarian options are available as well.

Pastries + Sweets

Last, but certainly not least, all of our favorite coffee shops had great pastries and sweets. Like our sandwich program, we wanted to present the best baked goods possible. We teamed up with a local pastry chef Arielle Pastryworks and La Casita, and went through many rounds to select our favorite baked goods. We still do this regularly to bring in new and seasonal items.

Here are a few notes about our pastry + sweets program

  • Homemade pastries, from our friend Arielle Pastryworks.
  • Hazel cruffins. Yup, that’s a croissant in muffin form filled with hazelnut cream, inside of flaky, buttery goodness.
  • Seasonally rotated pastries like pumpkin loaf, key lime bars, and more! Check the ‘order to-go’ tab for our full menu.
