Doing a lot of expansion here...the tap room is small...in a weird location for an "out of towner" to find...liked the live music under the misters outside...thumbs up.

5 years ago when they opened, it seemed a little cooler, now its pretty clear they are only in this for the money. They make very mediocre beer, and dont treat customers very well

Vibe- Nice location, decent setup, pretty cool inside actually

Quality- Their beer is super average. maybe a little below. Nothing is very good, but nothing is horrendous either. The food is gross

Service- the bar staff are pretty cool. I have had very mixed interactions with other staff. Head brewer was cool, other people less so

Selection- They make the same 8 beers all the time, they are meh at best

Overall, i would go elsewhere, but dallas has a trash beer scene, so maybe stop by

what a cool place, my first ever visit to a texas brewery and it was awesome. the place is so cool, in a restoring area of town from what i understand. lots of brewing capacity, comfortable but modest taproom with an awesome beer garden area out back, all very open and flowy, cool and comfortable, with some neat art of their cans on top of the shade making structures and a nice stage space as well. could have sat out here indefinitely. they had a whole range of beers on from light summer slammers to hoppy beers to wild, sour, and adventurous offerings, absolutely something for everyone here at deep ellum. i loved the rye pils, i think thats a really under appreciated beer, but the play date was amazing too. my mom loved the mexican lager, while my old man was real fond of the praline porter. great selection. service was fine but unremarkable. not a lot of action at our table, but the girls working were both attractive and friendly when they did come around. prices were plenty fair, and we just had a great time here. we had some nachos from their newly opened kitchen which were only okay, but its all about the beer here. a must hit if you are making the dallas brewery circuit. loved this place!

Cool vibe. Visited on a Thursday evening. 70% college crowd. Polished with raw elements. Has indoor and outdoor seating with outdoor stage. Cozy. The beer is average at best, nothing special. 15 beers on tap. The bartenders were easy on the eyes and moved quickly. Experienced some short pours which is unacceptable which might improve with additional training. I'm glad I checked it out but I won't be returning unless the beer improves.

Visited yesterday while up in Dallas and loved it. Very cool tap room. Was rustic looking, had a great vibe, and was packed around 3pm (apparently this was a slower day according to the manager and bartender.)
Bartenders were attentive and friendly. Spoke to the manager and also a sales rep who was there on his off day. Both were very cool to talk to, especially the sales rep.
For the beer I was pleasantly surprised. They don't distribute to San Antonio so I hadn't heard much about them and hadn't tasted anything from them before. Had the Four Swords Quad, the Legendairy milk stout, the Hatch Chile Stout and the Wealth & Taste barrel aged strong ale. All were really good, with the Legendairy and W&T being exceptional.
Definitely worth checking out if you haven't.

Came here one afternoon while visiting Dallas. A few other out of town groups were present. I love the atmosphere, it will be interesting to see once they finish the outdoor patio. I had a flight with IPA, Double IPA, Cherry Choc Stout, and Jack the RIPA. All were very good.
