This place is very cool. Great environment and atmosphere. On Saturdays they have food trucks and when I went they had a Greyfish boil. Lots of games to play and live music. The beer is good also.

Nice location. Cool building. Many hot college kids. Really seemed like I was at a college bar in the way back. Had the Session Brown, Pale, IPA. Unfortunatley they were hard to distinguish from each other. Great music, crawfish boil, but not worth a trip for beer. Pretty college people yes, beer no.

My husband and I always have a great time at the Deep Ellum Brewery. The beer is fantastic, especially the IPA and the Numb Comfort Barleywine. They book great local bands and it's dog friendly! Skip the tour as there's not much to look at. They usually have one or two food trucks nearby as well. The best $10 you can spend for an outstanding date night!

The brewery had some construction going on, so the tour guide had us just stand in the main tasting room and spoke to us over a mic. Not sure if this was because there was too much construction at the time, but if that is their idea of a tour all the time, then it's a pretty lousy one. The vibe was cool, I enjoyed the open area in front of the brewery, it has a stage where live musicians perform and a decent amount of seating. The staff were pretty friendly and answered questions in a friendly and positive way. The beer and merchandise selection was quite limited, 4 beers on tap, small handful of t shirts, 1 pint glass and no carry-out beer sales. All in all, a decent brewery experience, but a bit lackluster and forgettable.

The brewery is in a old section of Dallas, TX that I found nice and historical looking. The brewery is a little bit small but it was suiting. They have kind of the rustic thing going on outside in their courtyard.

There were food trucks to the side of the gates which have pretty good food.

The people working there were very nice and attentive.

The crowd was laid back and fun. They had live music outside that was very entertaining.

Most of my dislike was from having beer that I ended up dumping because I found it disgusting. Very sad because it was my idea to take me group there to try it.

Overall it was a nice brewery and fun...just didn't care for the beers that I ordered.

Review: Live music, multiple food trucks, local home brewer stands and unique beers not on tap anywhere else. They have a large social area outside and have a come-and-go mentality which was nice. Only downside is no AC for TX summer heat

I had very mixed feelings about this place on a recent trip to Dallas.

First off, the general atmosphere is really cool. Great outdoor area with a band playing, cool vibe in a nice part of Dallas. The people were very friendly.

There were two main negatives: First off the beer selection. They had only the 4 standard beers available, the ones that I could get anywhere in town: IPA, Blonde, Rye Pils and Double Porter. Not a single interesting or one-off beer was available. No cask. Nothing that it made the trip to the brewery seem worthwhile. The 4 they had all ranged from average to very good.

Secondly, there was a supposed to be a brewery tour that never happened despite their being a bunch of people there who had bought tickets to this tour. A sign said the tours typically start around 7:30, yet by 8:15 when we left there was no tour to be had, not was there any mention of its existence in general. Not sure what happened here...

I would possibly recommend a visit here but only because the beer options in Dallas are fairly limited.

The original and go-to brewery tour for me (and many, many central Dallas-ites). $10 gets you a glass-usually a pint, sometimes a tulip-and three full-pour samples. The selection includes all of DEBC's main line beers (prioritize the IPA and the Double Brown Stout), and typically includes one or more seasonal or special releases. The courtyard/beer garden has been greatly improved since DEBC opened, and the indoor portion provides at least some respite from the Dallas [spring/summer/fall] heat. My only knock is the popularity - the indoor portion can often get very crowded, and the wait for beer can get long. The DEBC tasting faces a lot of competition for my regular Saturday afternoons as other tastings have come online around the area, but the atmosphere and solid beers keep it top draw when I have visitors from out-of-town.

Was there last weekend. Really enjoyed it. They open the brewery up every Thursday and Saturday. For $10 you get a pint glass and 4 tickets for beers. They have the brewery open with a bar that you can just walk up to with your tickets but they also have a fenced in area outside with picnic tables and a stage where a band was playing. It has a really cool atmosphere. They also have a food truck on the street if you are interested in eating while you are there. Their staff are walking around throughout the place to answer your questions and they did a formal tour around 2:00. While I was there I had the Blonde, Farmhouse, Rye Pilsner, and Double Brown with tickets. They would let you sample beers without tickets so I got a sample of their IPA. They also had Quakertown Stout by Armadillo Ale Works there to try too so I sampled that as well. All in all a really cool place and I would definitely go back.
