3 Nations Brewing Co.

Craft Brewery in Farmers Branch -

3 Nations Brewing Co. Founder and brewmaster Gavin Secchi and his four partners combine ancient European brewing traditions with American innovation and ingenuity to come up with its line of craft beers. Their brewing process is “a fresh take on old world style” and launched mainstay beers American Wit and GPA, a German pale ale. Founded in 2015, they’ve since expanded the lineup to include, among others, Texas Gold, Mango Smash IPA, Bull’s Brown Ale, and Haze Wizard IPA. The brewery is celebrating new milestones with a win as Best Brewery in Dallas by the Dallas Observer, and the brewery's move in October 2019 to the Historic Downtown Carrollton (just 1.5 miles from their current location at Farmers Branch). The new facility includes a spacious taproom, patio, and a private events room.  The taproom will also double up as a test market serving new brews.

Armadillo Ale Works

Craft Brewery in Denton -

It was a long road to opening their own brewery for Armadillo Ale Works founders Bobby Mullins and Yianni Arestis. The brewery finally opened its doors on June 1, 2018, but their story starts much earlier. It actually starts in 2010 when the resilient duo won a grant to pursue their dream of brewing their own beers. Since then, they’ve run a successful Kickstarter campaign, had a location deal that went south, and overcame alienating their fans because of a supply disruption.  Uniquely, the brewery claims the distinction of having won prestigious industry awards without ever having its own brewing facility. Now settled at their Denton location, they continue to craft their award-winning beers and sodas. They even brew coffee at the taproom. The space is also available for special event venue rentals, with liquid refreshments from the brewery, of course.

Bankhead Brewing Company

Craft Brewery in Rowlett -

Bankhead Brewing Company is the brainchild of chef Kevin Lefere and brewmaster Ryan Pyle. They were both eager to open their own brewpubs, but didn't feel equipped to operate and manage a successful brewpub on their own. A chance introduction by mutual friends in 2014 eventually blossomed into a partnership. By Spring 2016, they opened Bankhead Brewing Company. The brewery’s namesake is the old Bankhead highway. Built in 1916, the highway ran from Washington, D.C. to San Diego and spanned downtown Rowlett. The pioneering spirit that built the highway reflects the same spirit that inspired its founders to build their own brewery and restaurant. One hundred years later, the pair are serving their award-winning craft beers and delicious, fresh-from-the-wood-burning-oven food in downtown Rowlett.

Bitter Sisters Brewing Company

Craft Brewery in Addison -

Bitter Sisters Brewing Company is the only production brewery in Addison. An independent, family-owned craft brewery, it takes its name from the three "type-A McHugh sisters". Baby brother and wife are part of the business, too, as are the sisters’ husbands. Together, they own Bitter Sisters, and each doing his or her part so the company can produce award-winning craft beers. This makes the brewery and the taproom a real family affair, with beers that have memorable and distinctly female names like Hissy Fit, Cat Fight, Winter Bush, Girls Quad, Bitch Slap, Knock Out, and Busy Body. The brewery started coming together when Brewmaster Matt Ehinger married one of the sisters, Courtney, and quickly realized that beer – his home-brewed beer – made everyone less “bitter”. Eventually, the idea of putting up a brewery was hatched. And as they say, “the family that brews together... has the most fun”!

Braindead Brewing

Craft Brewery in Dallas -

With multiple awards over the years, BrainDead Brewing is a fixture at Deep Ellum in Dallas. It is Dallas’ first true brewpub (the restaurant brews their beer onsite) and their awards include best burger, best brewery, best bar for beers, best bar, etc., from several Dallas-based groups. Opened in March 2015, the brewery currently offers 35 craft beer varieties. That’s not counting the rotating guest brews on taps, cans, or bottles. For wine enthusiasts, there’s a current selection of six wines. Don’t forget – it’s also an award-winning restaurant with an anytime menu, a lunch menu, and a Sunday brunch menu. Their Coma Burger is mentioned in several blogs and testimonies of its goodness abound. The brains behind BrainDead are Sam Wynne, Jeff Fryman, brewer Andrew Huerter, chef David Peña, and their slogan says it all: “Beer. Food. Good.”

Breaking Brew Meadery

Craft Brewery in Dallas -

Breaking Brew Meadery is a family-owned brew meadery and is the first mead taproom located in Dallas, Texas. It can be found "in an industrial-looking strip mall" and "it could be hard to find if you aren't watching out for the signs pointing to the meadery". This is a "great place to relax" with "great service and super nice owners too". "If you have never tried meads before, this is the place to get your first and learn more about the process and how meads got their taste". Mead is one of the oldest alcoholic beverages which is fermented from honey.  There are "dry, fruity, or hoppy meads" such as the "Ginger Bear" and "Raspberry Beret". They have "light, flavorful, gluten-free" meads such as the "Comb Over" and the "Bee Sting". You can bring a growler and discount its cost on your next refill. They offer flights too.

Brutal Beerworks

Craft Brewery in North Richland Hills -

Brutal Beerworks owners Eric Johnson, Sallie McIntyre, and Jason Perez named their craft brewery after the “brutal” journey towards opening their dream business. Eric had been a passionate homebrewer and Jason is a professional brewer at another brewery. The two met, and with Sallie joining to do the stuff that neither wants to do, they were on their way to building their dream. Or so they thought. The dream took a “brutal” route including application delays due to the government shutdown. Fundraising and many other problems came their way. Finally, on Father’s Day 2019, they opened the brewery to the public and became North Richland Hills’ first brewery. The owners initially came up with a different name for Brutal Beerworks, but in the end, the name seemed fitting. Brutal, yes, but (or is it “and”?) it’s definitely good beer according to initial reviews. On a side note, Eric’s giving away free beer to the first person to give the original name they thought of for the brewery.

By The Horns Brewing

Craft Brewery in Mansfield -

By The Horns Brewing opened in late January 2019, at The Backyard in Downtown Mansfield. The brewery is part of restaurateur Jason Boso’s latest project, and has brewmaster Justin Meyers at the helm. Ably assisted by Charli the “assistant brewmaster”, Justin currently has about seven signature brews. By The Horns shares common space with Tacos and Avocados, another of Jason’s restaurants. Together, the two businesses generate rave reviews from guests such as this: “Great tacos and craft beer!” Add to the lot Twisted Root (a burger place) and Hypnotic Emporium (everything ice cream), and you’ve got HEAVEN. The brewery and Tacos and Avocados share a common indoor seating space, but all four establishments share a large outdoor area. They are open daily and it’s family-friendly and very pet-friendly area. When you meet Charli, you’ll know why this particular establishment loves your pooches. There's live music on Fridays and Saturdays from 7pm to 10pm.

Celestial Beerworks

Craft Brewery in Dallas -

Husband and wife Matt and Molly Reynolds own Celestial Beerworks in DFW. Matt’s work with a restaurant to help them grow their brewing system in 2015 had been gaining a following, and he and his wife thought it was a good time to open their own business. Located at the Medical District, the brewery and taproom combines the things the couple are most passionate about – science, art, space, and beer – especially “hoppy and hazy” beers. A former art teacher, Molly managed the design of their beers’ labels and created most of the murals at the taproom. The road towards opening in late October 2018 was tough. During the process, they also had two children within a span of 15 months and kept their full-time jobs until just months before the opening. The rewards, however, came when four of their beers “trended” in a popular beer app soon after they opened.

Community Beer Co.

Craft Brewery in Dallas -

Kevin Carr is the founder of Community Beer Company. Opened to the public in January 2013, the brewery’s motto is “Beer for the Greater Good,” and the events at the brewery’s huge 21,000 square feet of space reflect this motto. Their four-point manifesto also reinforces the motto. In summary, it states that “beer is communal” and that the brewery is “passionate about providing quality beer” to the community. As stewards of the community, they “adhere to environmentally sustainable practices” and promise to give back by supporting charitable activities and local artists. Their events lineup always aims to bring people together. The team always tries to make it a hub for the North Texas community. Last August 2019, for example, the brewery held a recruitment drive for bone marrow donors. One reviewer says “Dallas is lucky to have such a fantastic brewery to call its own!”

Their focus has been with beers like “Saison, ESB, Quad, Imperial Milk Stout” with Cherries, a variety of IPA’s including “New England IPA” that weighs in at 7%. It has light malt backbone with fruity citrus & pine aroma and tangerine flavor hops. They also have “Wee Heavy, English Porter, American Pale Ale and an Imperial Red.” The theme of Deanitude Brewing is all about, but not limited to, Big Beers. They have an 1831 era historic German beer called “Fredersdorfer,” which is very similar to a Märzen, but has a large percentage of wheat in the grain bill. The flavor is malt with a wheat spice, subtle spicy German hops and a smooth mouth feel.

Deep Ellum Brewing Co.

Craft Brewery in Dallas -

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.

Denton County Brewing Company

Craft Brewery in Denton -

Denton County Brewing Company is the brainchild of Seth and Jen Morgan. The husband and wife initially envisioned the brewery as “Denton’s second living room”, where Denton residents can “(hang) out on your couch”. These days, they call it Denton’s “adult playground (with) board games, trivia nights, delicious appetizers, and the coolest bar staff”. The brewery has been serving craft beers “born and brewed in Denton” since 2017. Besides their house brews, they also serve a selection of wine, sake, ciders, and beers from other local breweries. For $1,000, customers can buy a “Biersal”. With reference to German mythical folklore, Biersal members get a free beer for life. The “Augustine – The Extended Experience” at $295, meanwhile, gives members discounts to beers and early access to new beer releases, among other benefits.

Dirty Job Brewing

Craft Brewery in Mansfield -

Dirty Job Brewing’s owners are husband and wife Derek and Lashawn Hubenak, and Derek’s best friend, Justin Watson. They named their brewery after the “dirty work” they did to get the brewery up and running. Fourteen months hence, after a modest start in 2017, the trio set out to expand their capacity in 2018. With a “forgivable loan” from the city of Mansfield, the team’s expanded operations now includes a kitchen. They are also able to produce larger quantities of their award-winning beers. The brewery’s location is in downtown Mansfield and one of its goals is to help in the revitalization of the area. Now that the brewery's founders have done their bit, they invite guests to enjoy the area’s shops, restaurants, and many art installations. Oh – and to keep up with the brewery’s events and what’s on tap, they’ve got an app to help you out!

Division Brewing

Craft Brewery in Arlington -

Division Brewing owners Wade Wadlington, his wife Tami, and Sean Cooley probably never thought of it. Wade and Sean were homebrewers who favored different beer styles. Tami, meanwhile, does the marketing and management stuff. Together, they set out to establish and grow the brewery after opening in early 2015, but somehow, it has become more than just a brewery. A couple of years later, it’s been called an “unlikely cultural hub” by a writer for an online magazine. It all started when the group acquired the space that an art and clothing shop vacated in 2017. In its place, they opened a comic book store, a music store selling vinyl, CDs, cassettes, and memorabilia, and a space for live music. Today, the brewery has become a “perfect storm” for music, comics, and beer nerds. Catch up with them by downloading their app!

Edgewise Eight Brewing

Craft Brewery in Weatherford -

Edgewise Eight Brewing is “a startup brewery” that started operations in 2018. Founded by Barney Ellis and his two sons, Colt and Clif, the three family members were avid former homebrewers. Between them, they’ve been winning awards for their beers since 2016, including a first place finish at the 2016 Great American Beer Festival. In their website bio, they proclaim that they are “hell bent” on producing the highest quality beers. With the many awards they’ve won, it seems they’re on track. The next step would be to open the brewery’s own taproom to add to their production facility. That just might come soon. In August 2019, the city of Weatherford offered the brewery a downtown space on Weatherford’s North Main Street. For now, get their award-winning beers at bars and pubs around Weatherford and Fort Worth.

Fort Brewery & Pizza

Craft Brewery in Fort Worth -

For the owners of Fort Brewery & Pizza, pizzas and beers are two of the best things that bring people together. This is especially true when both are taken together. Thus, it’s important for the owners of the brewery and restaurant to honor their family’s legacy in helping build the Fort Worth community. According to the company’s website, they hope the brewery becomes “an inviting place for the whole community”. With a beer named after a family ancestor and said to be the "first baby born in Fort Worth", the company takes their mission to heart. The brewery actually comes in the heels of two other breweries which occupied its premises. The company changed hands in March 2018, and reopened under its new name in June. They currently serve six beers on tap and a selection of wines from Kent & Co. And then there's the delicious pizza, of course.

Four Bullets Brewery

Craft Brewery in Richardson -

Four Bullets Brewery opened in May 2014 and takes its name from a Texas Hold ‘Em poker term meaning four aces. Owners and friends Andrew Smeeton and Jeff Douglas are both poker fans and former homebrewers. Drew, a native Englishman, and Jeff prefer to create handcrafted “English Ales with a Texas twist”. The brewery is Richardson’s first and fondly called “the smallest brewery in Dallas”. The brewery started with just four craft beer varieties when they opened, and now has over a dozen varieties. The owners like to say they are not in competition with big, large breweries. Instead, they wish to be known as “a neighborhood brewery catering to the Richardson area”.  With tasty offerings like their popular Royal Flush Red Irish-style pale ale, all Four Bullets beers have casino or poker-themed names.
