While it might have taken some time for Texas to get on board with the craft beer craze, once it did, there was no going back. In the last few years, Arlington has welcomed craft beer to the city in wonderful ways, opening growler bars and breweries. Here are some amazing bars in Arlington for craft beer enthusiasts.

On Tap

Bar, Craft Ale Bar, American

On Tap offers 50 taps of craft beer, mead, and cider for craft beer lovers. Visitors have the option of filling up growlers, ordering a pint of beer, or experiencing a five-flight tasting in 5 oz glasses. The Thirsty Thursday special offers three craft beers, priced at $3 each and discounts on growler fills. If visiting with a friend who doesn’t like craft beer, On Tap also offers cold brew coffee and root beer on tap.

Division Brewing

Bar, Craft Ale Bar, American

Division Brewing was the city’s first locally-owned brewery. They offer a diverse set of beer, such as light ales, malty amber beers, and a selection of craft beers that sometimes have a fruity or sour taste. They are only open Wednesday through Saturday for tastings and events. Past events included Waffle Beer Breakfast and live music events.

Legal Draft Beer Co. became Arlington’s first craft beer production company in 2016. Their five core beers— Blonde Lager, Amber Lager, India Pale Ale, Hefeweizen, and Stout—can be enjoyed inside or on the patio. They also offer brewery tours on Saturday at 2 and 4 p.m., and flight tastings on Thursday, Friday, and Sunday. On Saturdays, visitors can enjoy a deal that includes three drinks in a free, take-home 9-oz or 16-oz glass.

Humperdinks Restaurant & Brewpub

Bar, Restaurant, American

Humperdinks Restaurant & Brewpub is a local Dallas-Fort Worth chain that began brewing their own beer in 1995, the same year that they opened their Arlington restaurant and brewpub. Along with serving American comfort food like hamburgers and pizza, they also brew signature handcrafted ales and lagers. Their Humperdinks Porter won the gold medal in the Best Little Brewfest in Texas. Seasonal beers like Banana Porter and Raspberry Blonde can be paired with meals. Those attending a game at Globe Life Park or AT&T Stadium can take advantage of Humperdinks shuttles to and from the games for a fee.

Kool Keg Beer and Margaritas

Craft Ale Bar, American

While their digs may look new, Kool Keg has been a mainstay in Arlington since 1982. They’re a full-service growler bar and bottle shop, specializing in craft beer. There are 30 rotating beers on tap—many of them local—to taste, try, and take home in your growler. The cool thing about Kool Keg is that while you can go there to experiment with new beers, you can also tap them for alcohol catering, too. They offer kegs and margarita rentals for your next big event.

Hooligan's Pub

Bar, American

Hooligan’s Pub is a laid-back Irish pub in Central Arlington that sells local craft beers. They have a monthly selection of rotating craft beers on draft, many of which are from Texas-based breweries. With karaoke, daily specials, and events like a St. Patrick’s Day Bash, Hooligan’s Pub is a favorite craft beer spot in Arlington.

It's the personal contact, the personal experiences. I love meeting people from all over the world... I really like getting to know everyone and feeling like I'm traveling with a group of friends.


I have so many places on my list, but I would really lobe to go to Africa. I consider myself an “adventure girl” and Africa feels like the ULTIMATE adventure!
