The 4th of July party was great! Lots of food trucks, drink specials, and live music! Bring your camp chairs if it is not too hot, or visit the air conditioned tap room upstairs.

Cool place to visit, all workers super friendly. My personal issue is bringing babies and children to a brewery and drinking, that's just me. Had the Firemans 4 Lite, very enjoyable. Great atmosphere. Do recommend

Went to the brewery with some friends and their kids. Great atmosphere, they had board games and arcade games inside to keep the little ones occupied while we drank. Usually they have a food truck out front but they didn’t when we went. Overall, great...More

Lots of neat merchandise here. You can get beers offered in the stores and beers not offered in stores ( on the chalkboard). They also have spirits on sale there or you can get a cocktail made.

We went a couple of times over a weekend in February and really enjoyed it both times. We ended up sitting outside on the picnic tables both times after getting our beer. A great place to spend an hour or two with friends.

Real Ale has been a craft brewer for a couple decades now. You can get a tour and have a pint at their taproom, or flights of samples. They now also distill. Have a very nice gin and a couple good whiskies.

Real Ale beer is common around Texas, but it's worth stopping at the brewery to try beers that are on limited release or only available there. They also have two types of whiskey and gin they distill on site. The tasting room has picnic style...More
