But real quick, here is what they said about us:
“Intrinsic Smokehouse & Brewery
If you live near downtown Garland, you already know about this place. Its barbecue is excellent (order the brisket). But it’s also a proper beer bar and brewery worth the drive. Molly and Cary Hodson own the joint. Together they’ve won local brew competitions with their Basil Buzz hefeweizen, among others. And their patio, in the brick-walled, burned-out husk of their former next-door storefront, is a bit of post-apocalyptic beauty.”

Post Apocalyptic Beauty sounds like a great beer name 🙂

D Magazine Best!

Intrinsic Smokehouse and Brewery is honored to be included in D Magazine’s Best BBQ edition.
“Perched in a prime position in old downtown Garland, Intrinsic is a hip brick-walled brewery filled with communal picnic tables and a barbecue kitchen at the back. The smell of oak-wood smoke and the sound of live music drift for blocks.”

We were interviewed and featured in the Central Track by writer and photographer Travis Baugh!


Intrinsic Smokehouse & Brewery stands on West State Street, just off the historic Garland city square. Intrinsic is not your average barbecue joint — mostly because it’s also a brew pub that offers quality craft beer alongside its quality craft barbecue, all in a hip rustic setting.

“We have equal focus on barbecue and beer,” says Cary Hodson, owner and brewmaster.

With Intrinsic open every day from 11 a.m. until at least 10 p.m. (it goes dark on Mondays), it’s a great spot to stop to get a bite for lunch or to grab a beer. With live music in the evenings, it’s also a nice, relaxed dinner environment.
