    Oak Highlands Brewery in Dallas had its grand opening yesterday (July 18, 2015). Right now they are only supplying to bars and serving in house. They are getting their canning line up and running in the near future they said.

    Saw the love in a previous post for 11 Below, just attended my second tap takeover at Whole Foods that they have done, spent like 1 hr talking to the brewer. All a bunch of great guys going about it the right way. Their Red IPA is a really well balanced beer, I grab a growler of it every time it is on tap. Actually going to head over to their brewery tomorrow. As for Texian, I talked to their brewer when I went by their brewery a few weeks ago on a Beer Bus tour. I got the feeling from him that they thought they were going to fast, and they decided to slow down and focus on quality and such. I almost didn't get back in the bus. They had several sours on tap along with some other beers (didn't notice, too taken with the sours) and the gose they had had just blown :slight_frown:. Going back out there when the Houston heat starts to receded. I have been talking to some beer guys in the Northwest part of Houston trying to get them to carry the few bombers that they make and to have them try to get some of their kegs. I

    San Antonio - Weathered Souls Brewing Co.

    Spearheaded by a local homebrewer with commercial brewing experience (always a good sign). He makes some great homebrew. Hopefully he can make it work on a commercial system. Aiming for a summer opening.

    Figured this may be of some interest to people. Here is a list of all the breweries/brewpubs with TABC approvals in TX that currently have yet to open. Basically, the ones that are closer to opening that "should" be happening:

    B = Brewery License, BP = Brewpub license

    Orf Brewing - Austin (B) - Maybe March opening?
    Baa Baa Brewhouse - Brookshire (BP)
    Cibilo Creek Brewing - Boerne (BP) - Hiring people as we speak
    Lorelei Brewing - Corpus Christi (B) - Filled their first kegs yesterday
    Armadillo Ale Works - Denton (B) - Under construction
    Proof and Cooper - Dripping Springs (BP) (They are unsure if they will ever brew but have a license)
    Wild Acre Brewing - Ft Worth (B) - Under Construction
    Granger City Brewing Company - Granger (BP) (Technically open as a bar but not yet brewing)
    4J Brewing Company - Houston (BP)
    City Acre Brewing - Houston (BP) - Now hiring
    Holler Brewing Company - Houston (B)
    Platypus Brewing - Houston (BP)
    Under the Radar Brewery - Houston (B) - Making test batches
    Sigma Brewing - Houston (B)
    Pint and Plow Brewing - Kerrville (B) - Final stages of construction
    Donny's Brewpub - La Vernia (BP) - Open as a bar, no idea if they will actually brew
    San Gabriel River Brewing - Liberty Hill (BP) - March-ish?
    Oil Horse Brewing - Longview (B)
    Dej Buh Stesti Brewing - Lovelady (B)
    Rabble-Rouser Brewing - McAllen (B)
    Bakfish Brewing - Pearland (BP) - About to open
    Braman Brewing - Richmond (B) - Finishing construction
    Barrow Brewing Company - Salado (BP) - Opening in early spring
    Dorcol Distilling - San Antonio (B) - Open but no idea about their brewery
    Altmeyer & Lewis Brewing - San Marcos (B) - Opening in the spring
    Aquabrew - San Marcos (BP) - Opening in the spring
    Saloon Door Brewing - Webster (BP) - Final stages of construction

    I heard a rumor while visiting a brewery in Leander on Friday that IronSight brewing is in bad shape because one of the owners screwed everyone over. Apparently he changed the locks, fired the assistant brewer when he showed up to open the taproom and is trying to force the other owner out. They haven't been open in a month, does anyone know anything about this? I love their beer and would sure hate to see them go.

    "I would like to sincerely thank all of my family and friends who have supported my dream of someday owning a brewery. The road was long and I worked countless hours while spending precious time away from my wife and daughter, but I did it! I brewed some really great beer, met some great people, made new friends, and learned some really cool things along the way. I love brewing and my passion for the craft keeps me moving toward something new.

    I have decided to walk away from my place at IronSight Brewers and will no longer be a part of the day to day operations. I tried everything to save IronSight from the grasp of greed but during that fight I came to realize that I am better off leaving the company behind. I DID NOT FAIL! I am choosing to walk away from IronSight with my head held high knowing that I built something great and hopefully IronSight will continue to flourish. My future is bright and I have people behind me that believe in me. I do have plans in the works to start over! So stay tuned!
    "
    That's pretty nuts. Hopefully Robert is able to start a new venture soon.

    So, I gotta ask, what is your connection with Ironsight? All 5 of your posts have been regarding Ironsight - one to talk about them opening and that they have good beer, one to talk about a great place up in north Austin, two to bring up a rumor that one owner screwed over Robert, and then this.

    It just seems....odd...that this is all you talk about/bring up.

    My only connection is that I thoroughly enjoyed their beers and was very disappointed to see that I wouldn't be able to come back for more. Honestly I found the reddit thing floating around FB a few days ago so I thought I would share it on this forum topic because I had previously commented on it. I just hate to see the "little guy" get shit on so I apologize if my posts came off overly concerned but it's really nothing more than that. I have so few posts because I use Untappd now
