What is a trip to a new city without stopping by at least one brewery? The Dallas/Fort Worth area is huge and, therefore, it boasts a ton of awesome local craft breweries. We’ve got a list of five of the best that you should definitely add to your list, whether you are a resident or are just passing through.
Deep Ellum Brewing Co was actually the first craft brewery in Dallas, making it a must-visit in the area. They have continued to develop the boldness of their brand since opening its doors in 2011. Currently, they offer 16 beers in their Dallas taproom, each one with a distinct flavor profile. You are sure to feel anything but the status quo while visiting this brewery.
This brewery is located directly in downtown Denton, and it’s often described as an adult playground. Denton County Brewing Co curates a laid-back environment where you can retreat after a long day at work or to join friends for some daytime suds. The brewery is locally owned and serves not only independently crafted beers but also wine, cider, sake, and the occasional guest brew. Games, trivia nights, and more are always welcome at the Denton County Brewing Co.
Bitter Sisters Brewing is a family affair! That makes it a tight-knit group that curates only the best for its community. Theirs is a simpler tasting room than some of the others on this list, which only adds to the close-knit atmosphere. And if you want to see how the beer gets made, you can join them for a Saturday tour.
Pegasus City Brewery prides itself on the drinkability of its beers. Each one is developed to have an incredibly balanced flavor profile. On the menu, you’ll find a list of classics, as well as some more adventurous brews. But rest assured each is as delicious as the last. The brewery has been open since 2011 and views craft beer as not just a recreational activity, but an art form.
The story behind Four Bullets is a fun one. The venture started with a home brewing kit and two friends who were determined to begin creating their own delicious beers. They soon decided to expand their home brewing system to that of a scaled-down commercial model and, after several more years, they took the leap to debut their beers to the public. The rest, as they say, is history. The history of the establishment can be tasted in every beer.
