Some amazing craft worth raising a glass to in the Dallas-Fort Worth brewery scene.
After a long day of town tours and house-hunting, there’s nothing better than kicking back at a local Dallas-Fort Worth brewery. Better yet, bring the whole family — many of these beer gardens are kid and pet-friendly.
#1. ODD Muse Brewing Company (Farmers Branch)
If Farmers Branch is on your list, ODD Muse should be on your radar. They offer a varied tap list with every type of beer drinker in mind. And locals head here for trivia, live music, food trucks, and other community events. The walls are decorated with local artwork and they even offer painting nights on occasion (keep an eye on their event’s calendar).
Bringing your pup with you? You’re in luck — just find a spot in the backyard beer garden.
#2. TUPPs Brewery (McKinney)
TUPPS offers a laid-back vibe in its beer garden. It’s a neighborhood hotspot where families can go to listen to live music or enjoy some sunshine with a drink in hand. And speaking of, the draft menu features a rotating selection of stouts, IPAs, and hard seltzers. They even have non-alcoholic options, too.
TUPPS is planning to relocate to the 120-year old McKinney Grain Site later this year. Stay tuned for more news on the move and the state-of-the-art production facility that’s in the works.
#3. Lakewood Brewing Company (Garland)
Lakewood is known for its suburban-meets-urban feel and this brewery fits that right in. You’ll get a high-quality craft brew without having to fight crowds to enjoy it. With a 4,000sq ft beer garden (plus a huge indoor taproom) there’s plenty of space for everyone to enjoy a beer at Lakewood.
Once you arrive, give yourself some time to decide your order. With so many great options like the Muy Importante Margarita Lager, Texas Porter plus local wines and cider, it might be hard to pick what to drink first.
#4. Hop & Sting Brewing Company (Grapevine)
Hop & Sting is a community staple. There’s something happening almost every day of the week, including trivia, yoga, a run/walk club, a bike club, and more. They even offer a compost program so locals can upcycle their food scraps a few times each month. If you plan to move to Grapevine, Hop & Sting is an excellent place to start getting plugged into the town.
The brewmasters are always experimenting and new flavors regularly pop up on the draft menu. You can always count on a few staples, like their Aluminum Cowboy Light Lager and Fire Engine Red Ale.
#5. Armadillo Brewing Company (Denton)
Armadillo Brewing Company was started by two homebrewers with a dream (and a couple of gold medals from the Great American Beer Festival and World Beer Cup under their belts). This brewery sits in the heart of downtown and is the perfect place to start a bar crawl. There’s a huge indoor taproom complete with a stage and a covered outdoor space where you can enjoy a pint with your pet by your side.
Not sure what to order? Start with their award-winning Honey Please Mesquite Bean Blonde or Land Yacht IPA. And if you’re more in the mood for caffeine, grab a latte from their craft coffee bar instead.
#6. 903 Brewers (Sherman)
This no-frills brewery is the perfect place to spend a relaxed afternoon. 903 Brewers features an extensive menu of tacos, pizza, and sandwiches. They even offer a kids’ menu so the littles won’t feel left out.
Enjoy a slushy or Sasquatch Hot Chocolate Stout in the outdoor beer garden. And if you move to town, make sure to come back for trivia, bingo, or movie nights.
