Anna Sage co-owns Local Pint along with Phillip Coleman, Scott Girling and her dad, Jeff Borland.
Anna Sage earned a master’s degree in counseling in 2013, but four years later, she opted for a different career path. She partnered with her dad, Jeff Borland, and two acquaintances, Phillip Coleman and Scott Girling, to open Local Pint on Oct. 13, 2017, in Flower Mound.

She said they were motivated by their love for craft beer, the inability to find any, and good food.

Sage admits she had no restaurant experience.

“I had never waited a table; I had never poured a beer,” she said.But that is where her business partners came in. Coleman and Girling have extensive restaurant and bar experience, and her father provided financial know-how garnered from his corporate background.

She said she is often called the face of the business.


“Some say I went from counseling children to counseling adults,” Sage said. “They come in here because they want to escape, have good food and drink a beer. They want someone to listen to their stories.”

Sage is also responsible for ordering the beer. Local Pint sells only craft beer, no domestics. It also sells cider, wine, nonalcoholic beer and root beer. Of their 48 craft beer choices, only five are available year-round. Their rotating on-tap menu is divided into categories such as Specialty & Seasonal, Blondes & Lagers, IPAs & Pale Ales, Sours & Saltys, and more.

First-time customers tend to visit Local Pint for the beer but return for the food, Sage said.

“It’s the biggest surprise for them—how great our food is,” she said.

Girling is the head chef. He collaborates with Justin Helton, chef de cuisine, to create recipes. They often incorporate seasonal items, and every first Thursday of the month there is a new menu.

Sage said interacting with people is her favorite.

“We surround ourselves with good people,” she said. “It’s a great environment to be in.”
