Visited after work on a Wednesday. Easy enough to find in a warehouse light industrial type area. Minimal parking out front, though seemed like surrounding lots were fair game. Big modern looking functional building from the outside, inside is more welcoming, with an open tasting room a decent sized bar, tables and plenty of space to stand around. There are no windows, so despite the modern aesthetic, still was a bit dark in there. Merchandise shop available, large production brewery behind the bar through big glass window. Selection is 12 house beers on draft, 4 available in the bottle. Food is a couple of bar snacks. Tasting flight and smaller pours seemed to be available, but were not advertised on the beer menu. Nice enough service, though got weird attitude as I left asking me to pay for a 2nd beer I didn’t have. I explained I only had 1, and the lady working basically told me I was lying, but don’t worry about it. I fixed the hours, accurate as of September 2016.
70 = ★★½ (Locals should check it out, visitors with extended time)
I only use the total score, not the component parts.
Came here 30.4.2016. Very large and commercial brewery just outside of Dallas. Not even 4 years old, already have expanded largely. Quite busy on a Saturday afternoon. They conduct very professional brewery tours. You can sit in the large brewhouse, with huge fermentation tanks and many wooden barrels or in the large very family friendly patio outside. A food truck is available. Beers are absolutely ok. Had a session IPA and a nitro tapped Milk stout. Opening hours are much more extensive than dispalyed on the top.
Visited here in late June ’15 while in the area for business. Modern, clean industrial looking tap room in a industrial area. Nice high ceilings, view of the equipment behind the bar. Have at least a dozen or so of their beers on tap. All that I tried were excellent. They offer small 5 oz glasses which is perfect for a ticker like me. Wednesdays are "Neighbor Day" and everything is 20% off. Friendly, talkative, but not overbearing bartender. Will stop by again if in the area.
$10 gets you in the door, a glass, and four tasting tokens. They frequently have special beers available, along with their four year ’round beers. Live music, food truck in the back, and awesome volunteers. Solid place.
Overall, a pretty good brewery tour. Usually plenty of choices on draft and always something special for the day. Tap room is nice and clean, the staff is very willing to talk about the brewery and answer questions.
Lakewood has one of the best tour/tasting setups in town. They have a nice wooden bar up front in the air conditioning with some long tables. They also have tables in the actual brewery, but there is no AC. A food truck is usually on hand during Saturday tastings, which cost $10 for four beers + a glass. The tastings are usually pretty crowded so get there early. Lakewood’s brewers are big fans of one-off casks and celebrating special occasions. They had five brand new cask beers on tap for American Craft Beer Week, and three more for Belgian Independence Day. Definitely a brewery that values experimentation.
