1. Deep Ellum Brewing Company


Deep Ellum Brewing Company

Trade in the mainstream brands of beer for a much more flavorful option. In Deep Ellum, the brewery focuses on variety and providing the best quality to its customers. The microbrewery ties in the quirky culture of the local neighborhood to its beverages too. When no other breweries existed in Dallas, four friends came together to create the best tastes that locals and tourists have ever come across. From year-round brews such as Double Brown Stout to specialty brews such as Oak Cliff Coffee Ale, there’s a wide variety to suit any mood.

2. Peticolas Brewing Company


Peticolas Brewing Company

A family-run business, the Peticolas brewery stemmed from Jacques Peticolas’ Mexican style beer with hints of apricots. Soon after founding this trademark brew, Michael Peticolas carried out his mother’s passion for creating wonderful beverages in the Texas heat by opening the Peticolas Brewery. From the U.S. Open Beer Championship to the U.S. Beer Tasting Championship, the Peticolas Brewing company has won many awards to mark its immense talent and unforgettable flavor, so be sure to stop by for a tipple or two!

Here, the craft of brewing is treated with the utmost delicacy and each beer has its own unique flavor. The staff is extremely committed to providing the best quality for all its customers and there are four different specialty series of beers to try: legendary, seduction, year-round and seasonal.

4. Braindead Brewing

Pub, Restaurant

Braindead Brewing

A cross between a brewery and a pub, Braindead serves some of the best grub and beer around town. Opened relatively recently, they feature over 42 taps, at least 12 of which always serve beers made on-site. The trio that began this joint brought the concept of brewpub to Dallas. (A brewpub is a restaurant that brews beer to serve alongside some savory snacks). Consequently, the ambiance of this one generates a communal feeling and encourages everyone to bond over beer!

5. Four Corners

Four Corners

Three friends and one passion started this brewing staple of Dallas in a garage, resulting eventually in Four Corners.
