this place was awesome, one of my favorite brewery visits from the dallas trip for sure. the space is enormous, looks like an airplane hangar or something, vaulted ceilings even in the tap room side, and a forest of tanks visible through the window behind the bar. they have made really cool use of the space here, with a long bar running a good portion of the length of it, a small stage with some groovy live tunes in the back, and just a few picnic tables and chairs along the edges, looking like doll furniture, totally dwarfed by the enormity of the building. they had playoff hockey projected on one wall, barrels stacked high, and a solid selection of beers on tap. the ascension coffee porter was my favorite, but they had a funnel cake beer that we all liked, as well as a barrel aged imperial stout called legion that was quite impressive. i didnt dig getting served the beer in plastic cups though, that felt cheap to me, poor presentation of great beer, but i guess with the concrete floors in this warehouse space, it makes some sense. the server was real friendly and attentive, and was happy to chat about the place and the beers, seemed to know her stuff quite well. everything was so mellow and chill in here, with the music and all the room. they had a loading dock door open and a warm breeze was wafting through, looked like folks were hard at work in the brew house, and everything just sort of felt right in here. definitely a must stop if you are out hitting breweries in the dallas area, i am so glad i came here and will definitely be back for more!

Extremely spacious taproom with various activities to do while you drink! Bar seating is limited, but there are plenty of picnic table seats and standing room to go around. Fun to be there for sporting events because they will project the game up onto the wall.

V-Community is located near central Dallas in a large (by my Colorado standards, anyway) warehouse. The 12-seat bar looks strange in the center of the cavernous seating area, but at least you have room to spread out. I visited on a Wednesday evening and the place felt empty, but there were maybe 5 or 6 small parties in there at the bar and the long community tables. It is kind of dark and sparse, but the friendly service really helps.

Q-I was in the mood for hops, so I tried some Community IPAs and both were solid. The Mosaic was especially tasty, while the session IPA was good for the style, but nothing to write home about.

Ser-The bartender was great. He was prompt, he knew a ton about the beers he was slinging, and he was friendly. The head brewer was also walking around chatting and sipping on a beer of his own. Good pours, proper glassware, right temperature. Really close to perfect on the service front.

Sel-I did not notice any guest taps, but there were maybe 8 community beers on tap. Community had the spread of typical styles, including a fruited wheat, an IPA, a session IPA, an amber (or ESB I think), a big stout and a Belgian or two.

O-The space is kind of strange, but the great service and inviting people make for a good vibe. The beer is tasty too. Highly recommend.

I had a great time here. The beer was great and the had a pool table. The location is a little though to get to if you are taking the train But it was worth the wait.

This review encompasses many many visits.

The average tap room saturday tour (if you buy online) is 8 bucks and you get 3 beers. (you used to get 3 or 4 beers plus a glass for 10, but times change). They typically have at least 6 regular beers and 1 or 2 cool rotators on draft. Overall staff is super nice

The 4.5 for quality is directed specifically at the anniversary. We went VIP last year, which was one of the best beer moments i have had. Unbelievable enthusiasm and so so many cool drafts on tap. Amazing party

This is a great place to visit when the tap room is open. They're pet friendly, and there's always plenty to do for entertainment. They have a pool table, giant jenga, a pair of projectors tvs playing on the giant wall of the taproom (it's a warehouse setting), art on exhibit on Saturdays, live music, and all kinds of other things to keep you entertained along with their great brews on tap.

Open house/ brew tours every Saturday.

Tickets are $8 online or $10 at the door, which gets you entrance and 3 beer tokens. You can drink out of plastic or buy their glasses for $5.

A great atmosphere to try some fantastic beers and relax. All-indoors with plenty of picnic-table seating, live music, local food & art vendors, and even games (cornhole & giant Jenga).

My favorites are their Mosaic IPA and Inspiration Ale. Also make a great pilsner in the summer. Bartenders are friendly and give generous pours.

Overall, an excellent value. Should be a no-brainer if you are in Dallas and dig tasty beer.
