Deep Ellum Brewing Company

Located in one of Dallas’s most iconic arts and entertainment districts, Deep Ellum Brewing Company is the perfect place to kick off a brewery tour. As one of DFW’s longest-running craft breweries, these pioneers have been knocking out nationally-acclaimed beers since 2011. Their flagship Dallas Blonde is a smooth, easy-drinking blonde ale that’ll appeal to beer newbies and connoisseurs alike. More adventurous palates will want to branch out and sample Deep’s ever-rotating selection of experimental brews—the brewery is renowned for unique infusions like their Sweet Mustache raspberry wheat. Along with a cozy taproom, Deep Ellum Brewing Company houses a 20,000 sq ft production facility and beer garden where you’ll often find food trucks and live music on the weekends. It’s the perfect laid-back locale to kick back cold brews with friends on a sunny Dallas afternoon. And if you’re visiting over the holidays, don’t miss their boozy Christmas ale served in a ceramic bottle that makes for one holly, jolly souvenir!

Peticolas Brewing Company

In a state famous for doing everything BIG, Peticolas lives up to the hype with MASSIVE award-winning beers. Swing by their Design District taproom to taste a malty, multi-gold medal winner like the Velvet Hammer imperial red ale. Or, go full Texas and sip their Great’ER pallet amberwine, a colossal barrel-aged brew weighing in at a staggering 17% ABV. Don’t worry, with 22-oz bombers and growler fills available, you can pace yourself and bring plenty to go. While beer is serious business at Peticolas, the vibe in their taproom is refreshingly unpretentious. Snag a picnic table in their indoor beer garden and nosh from a rotating food truck while a friendly beertender guides you through their frequently changing lineup of year-round classics and taproom exclusives. Just be sure to save room for a plate of their famous beer bread pudding!

Manhattan Project Beer Company

Inconspicuously nestled in an industrial complex, Manhattan Project is the perfect place for beer geeks to geek out. Their quirky, chemistry-inspired themes and branding provide endless eye candy, from the cosmic mural on their patio to the test tubes and beakers that adorn their ultra-nerdy merchandise. More importantly, their innovative offerings like the phenomenally juicy “Plutonium-239” New England IPA and the game-changing “Half-Life” brut IPA are true works of artisanal alchemy. While Manhattan Project may be a pilgrimage site for any devoted craft connoisseur, this low-key, laid-back taproom welcomes beer newbies and families too. Furry friends can even join their owners on the pup-friendly patio. Just be sure to go lite on the Heavy Isotopes imperial stout unless you want to feel like YOU were hit by the bomb!

Three Nations Brewing

What happens when an American, a Russian, and a Ukrainian walk into a brewery? You get some incredibly unique and delicious craft beers at Three Nations in Farmer’s Branch! As Dallas’s first Ukrainian-American brewery, the immigrant founders drew from international influences and their diverse cultural backgrounds to produce distinct, award-winning ales. Even by DFW’s wildly innovative standards, Three Nations offers some truly off-the-wall offerings like a peanut butter chocolate milk stout, a dill pickle gose, and a habanero pale ale. More familiar styles like the crisp UT Arlington Blonde and citrusy Punch Fighter IPA aim to please any palate. Hit their industrial-chic taproom and beer garden to find out which one fits your taste buds best!

Texas Ale Project

As its name implies, Texas Ale Project isn’t just a brewery—it’s a full-fledged mission to put DFW on the map as one of America’s craft beer capitals. This massive beer hall is ground zero for the region’s largest selection of locally-brewed beers. From traditional German lagers and barrel-aged sours to juicy hop bombs, you’ll find just about every popular style represented across their 58 taps which prominently feature TAP’s own core and seasonal offerings alongside some of the best guest beers from other Texas breweries. Come for the extensive draft list, but be sure to stay for the scratch-made Tex-Mex menu packed with south-of-the-border favorites like chili con queso, nachos, tacos, and fajitas. With ample indoor/outdoor seating, private event spaces, and regular live music, Texas Ale Project is as much a local hangout as it is a premier beer destination.

Bishop Cider Co.

Not a beer drinker? Don’t worry, there are still plenty of sudsy options for you around Dallas! If ciders strike more of a chord, put Bishop Cider Co. at the top of your list. As the area’s first cider-focused establishment, Bishop delivers delightfully crisp and refreshing creations ranging from the flagship Texas Brut cider to limited releases like raspberry lemonade and cranberry ciders in peak seasons. Tucked away in the historically hip Bishop Arts District, the cozy taproom and pup-friendly beer garden are perfect for casual sips. Or pick up a 4-pack of 16oz cans to fuel your next backyard barbecue or pool day. Either way, these gluten-free, all-natural ciders straight from the heart of Texas make for a uniquely refreshing DFW drink.

Hop & Sting Brewing Co.

Last but not least, Hop & Sting is a hot new face on the Dallas beer scene turning heads with experimental brews like their crispy Pollen Pilsner and gold medal-winning Two to Mango pale ale. While their boutique selection inspires plenty of buzz, the real draw here is the inviting and whimsical brewery grounds. Trimmed with potted herb gardens and strings of twinkling lights, the large covered outdoor beer garden offers an oasis-like escape from the city. Beyond that, a spacious lawn with cozy campfires and a dedicated play area for kids makes for the perfect all-ages hangout. Post up for a bit or plan to spend the day—either way, it’s prime for sipping on their signature Bee’s Tea lemon-honey wheat while enjoying live music from local bands.
