Review of Deep Ellum Brewing Co. by TexasRealFood
Deep Ellum Brewing Co. has many achievements since it sold its first beer keg in November 11, 2011. It is currently the largest independent North Texas brewery, and Dallas’ first craft brewery. Much like the historic and culturally-significant neighborhood for which it is named, the brewery embodies the “bold, fearless, and unapologetic” spirit that enabled the area to rise and “to refuse to die”. Since the taproom’s opening at 2823 St. Louis Street, the brewery has added a second taproom location in Fort Worth. The Funkytown Fermatorium opened in 2018 at 611 University Drive. The brewery has a lineup of nine year-round beers including the popular Dallas Blonde. They also have several other seasonal beers. Brewery tours are at 1pm only at their Deep Ellum headquarters. In 2018, founder John Reardon sold DEBC to Oskar Blues Brewery, a brand of beers by the Canarchy Craft Beer Collective. Reardon also launched the Deep Ellum Distillery in November 2017.
