Who Crafts the Best Brews in Dallas?

Vote Now to Decide.

Fall marks an exciting time for beer. The change in season ushers in a line-up of rich and bold brews, perfect for the imminent cool and crisp air. But the remnants of the preceding season’s heat keep relevant the light and bright flavors of summer. Add Oktoberfest into the mix, and you’ve got perfection. So what better time to launch a new, all-important PaperCity poll – the Best Breweries in Dallas Challenge? Browse our line-up of Dallas’ top ten breweries, and cast your vote for the one you think rises to the top, just like a perfectly foamy beer head.

Deep Ellum Brewing Company

Deep Ellum Brewing Company

Not only can Deep Ellum brag about crafting crazy refreshing brews, but it also takes the -W as being the first craft brewery to open up in Dallas. Since November 11, 2011 (that’s 11/11/11), Deep Ellum has been pumping out some of the best beer in town – so much so that they opened up another location, the Deep Ellum Funkytown Fermatorium in Fort With.

Four Corners Brewing Company

Four Corners Brewing Company

Since shifting its focus from bottle brewing to craft brewing, Four Corners Brewing Company has wowed Dallas’ beer-drinkers with amazing year-round brews and adventurous seasonal specialties. This October, skip the pumpkin and instead go for that campfire vibe with La Lechuza, an indulgent S’mores Stout.

Community Beer Company

Community Beer Company

Situated just on the edge of the Design District, Community Beer Co. is committed to crafting high quality brews and supporting local artists, musicians, and charities – a concept they call “Beer For The Greater Good.” I think we can all get behind that. What else can we also get behind? The fact that they manage their own yeast with their own yeast lab. That’s local.

Braindead Brewing

Braindead Brewing

Braindead Brewing miiight make you braindead from the sheer number of brews available on the menu. For perspective, there are 35 deliciously refreshing offerings – from the favorite Honey Lager to the eccentric Tamale Season stout, made with chipotle, cocoa nibs, vanilla beans, and cinnamon. And their bites are worth checking out, too.

Trinity Cider

Trinity Cider

Toss those overly-sweetened generic ciders a-cide and make room for Trinity Cider, nestled in the heart of Deep Ellum. The master brewers behind Trinity know that sweetness isn’t what wins when it comes to ciders, but instead flavor. They craft their ciders to be crisp, dry, and sophisticated, just like your favorite fall fruit.

Lakewood Brewing Company

Lakewood Brewing Company

What’s one of the best ingredients for making good beer? Having a native-born Belgian lead the way. Lakewood Brewing Co. founder Wim Bens strives to bring the best flavors of beer to life through classic techniques, all while adventuring to craft some new styles. Check out their Seduction Series for a tastefully thrilling experience.

Peticolas Brewing Company

Peticolas Brewing Company

Not only does Peticolas Brewing Company know how to make great beer, but they also know how to market their great beer. You might catch yourself chucking in their huge, tri-level taproom space as you sip their matchless brews, like “Sit Down Or I’ll Sit You Down,” “Too Soon,” and “Don’t Be Scared.”

Bishop Cider Company

Bishop Cider Company

Founders Joel and Laura Malone started Bishop Cider because they knew cider could be better. They were sick of the sweet stuff, and decided to craft their own using plain ol’ apple juice from the Pacific Northwest. Since opening in Bishop Arts District in 2014, they’ve since expanded to a more spacious warehouse in the Design District.

Texas Ale Project

Texas Ale Project

This veteran and family-owned and operated brewery is known for sticking to the tried-and-true “multi-step mash brewing” process for making its beer. Though this method may require more time and accuracy, you can taste the difference. It really is like their double IPA suggests – it’s “100 Million Angels Singing.”

White Rock Alehouse & Brewery

White Rock Alehouse & Brewery

It’s easy to kick back and relax at White Rock Alehouse and Brewery. The casual patio and beer garden practically summon you to order up something cold and refreshing, especially if you’re coming off of the nearby White Rock Lake. And if you’re going to have one of their beers, you might as well pair them with some their killer bites.
