Grabbing a craft brew with friends is the perfect way to celebrate the summer season. These are a just a few of the best places to try some craft beer in the Dallas, Texas, area.
Community Beer Company
The Community Beer Company is the first brewery in the Design District of Dallas. The brewery was created by locals in an attempt to bring people together as a community. The state-of-the-art brewery has seasonal cans and bottles, year-round local brews, and a few select, award-winning craft beers.
The Community Beer Company also hosts frequent live music events and community gatherings. Just a few of the upcoming events this summer include trivia night, open house events, and a community beer and biking event.
Peticolas Brewing Company
The Peticolas Brewing Company was founded out of much more than a love for craft beer. The founder grew up with a family history of brewing authentic and delicious craft beer. He took this family value and turned it into one of the best breweries in the area. Since opening the doors to the brewery, it has won numerous local and national awards for its unique tastes.
While the brewery has a long list of craft beers, a few beers to try include the Golden Opportunity, the Velvet Hammer, and the Royal Scandal. You can also sign up for a tour of the brewery that takes you into the taproom and exposes you to the production process of some of the best local craft beers.
Bishop Cider Co.
Bishop Cider Co. is a popular place for craft beer because it not only has a long list of beers but also craft ciders. They opened the business in an effort to fill the local area’s lack of cider breweries. They have successfully created a menu of craft ciders that are not only gluten-free, vegan-friendly, and locally made, but that also taste delicious.
The Bishop Cider Co. is also home to an on-site tasting room and 150-game arcade. A minimal $10 cover fee gets you free access to all of the arcade games in the 17,000 square foot brewery.
Armadillo Ale Works
The dream of Armadillo Ale Works might have taken longer than planned, but the brewery is now officially a part of the Denton community. In fact, locals often compare the founding of the Armadillo Ale to the prohibition. This has led to a menu full of prohibition-inspired brews and sodas. The brewery also incorporates local Denton culture into its design and places great importance on showcasing local talents.
Just a few of the must-try brews on the menu include the Greenbelt Farmhouse Ale and the Brunch Money. Be sure to stop by for one of the local community events including art shows, $5 brewery tours, and evenings with live music and food trucks.
Dallas has quite the craft brewery scene. Whether you are looking for something in the form of a stout or a beer with more of a cider taste, you are sure to find it in the Dallas, Texas, area.
