I have only been to the warehouse in the winter time, so bring a hoodie at least to keep you warm until the winter warmer does that for you. Staff if friendly as can be. Live music is provided for you. You can buy unique drinking glasses to put your free beer in. I enjoy this beer and the atmosphere.

beer was not that great but it was free. Folks were super nice, and there were a lot of people there for the normal saturday tastings. Brewery tours didnít seem to be available, but it was one big room anyways so you could see everything. A few homeless folks got some beers too.

Pros: Its a warehouse - so what! This is Texas. If I wanted the Napa Valley Beer Experience Iíd go to Colorado. The people are friendly and the beer is free.
Cons: Its hot and humid in the summer (again, Texas). Beer quality is so-so. The black lager (Ugly Pug) is pretty good - as is the IPA (Stormcloud)...otherwise theyíre pretty bland. Often over-malted and under-hopped.
Overall: Not a bad way to spend a Saturday afternoon.

Nice folks here. The beer insít great but they are very friendly and even give out free beer on saturday from 1-3. Not very fancy its just a big warehouse with lots of stainless steel tanks and a small gift shop and tiny bar. OK.

Stumbled in with ilovedarkbeer on a Saturday at 3:15. We didnít know they had free tastings from 1-3, but we were still able to try a couple of beers for free. We talked to 2 of the brewers for a while about industry stuff, and how they brew there stuff and the history of the company. The staff seems to be all retired people volunteering for free beer. Nice place, and my opinion is much higher of the company after visiting.

Ok, this is a warehouse...ok....what do you expect from a beggining brewery. It is simple, yes, but the staff is very friendly, they give you a generous amount of beer, provide a live band, and local people come in and volunteer to work....This may not be a fancy place, but I feel at home when I go....I meet new people, hombrewers, and others from different walks of life. I go here once a month and I enjoy it....Itís like going to a kind of family reunion.

Iíve been on many brewery tours. This was probably the least fun out of all microbrewies. The tour guide is dull and doesnít keep you interested. Iím a homebrewer and was still bored by all the technical talk. Beers arenít very good either. Most are fairly bland and the hop character isnít good. Hopefully there will one day be a good DFW brewery.

Youíll find yourself in the same warehouse where they brew, with equipment and pipes everywhere, sitting on "village fair" benches and tables, bare concrete floor and walls... The atmosphere is very dull.
The bartender is very kind, letting me try all their beers. They decided to go for low fermentation beers, and this is not a smart choice unless you really know how to brew a classy beer; the flavors are missing and the quality is poor (apart from an interesting Winter).
