Quality craft beer at its finest, DeadBeach Brewery is known for its unique and bold flavors. Located near the Union Plaza of downtown El Paso, the brewery’s enthusiasm comes from its love for the city and its community. The brewery keeps its ingredients local. Honey extracted from a honey farm located in Fabens (a 20-minute drive away) is used when crafting the brewery’s Honey Badger beer. The brewery rotates its special brews and always keeps eight on draft. The Abuelita Stout is a must. Happy to share knowledge of craft beer with the community, the brewers at DeadBeach often host Beer 101 courses.
