Union Bear Brewing Co. opened in Plano in early January 2018. It is part of the Frisco-based 33 Restaurant Group, which operates several other concept restaurants. The brewery marks the opening of Plano’s first independent brewery and brewpub. They offer "plenty of beers to choose from and their entrees are a generous size". To complement their craft beers, the restaurant offers an extensive “menu of approachable, chef-driven plates”. They also have a selection of cocktails for guests. "It’s never too busy and the servers are always pleasant". Also, "you can choose to sit indoors or outdoor which is nice and their happy hour is also legit".
