Cute atmosphere and located in the cool, hipster area of Deep Ellum. The brewery a variety of beers. Flights are available if you can't decide. Great outdoor seating if it is a nice day out too!

Nice brewery with some decent beers, a fun vibe, and lots of outdoor seating. I would prefer a better curated beer list over the volume here, but they had some good choices.

Beer or food, yes yum. The beer selection was plentiful. There were multiple selections of each type of beer. Plenty of porters, stouts, IPA’s, pilsners. All were good with my liking towards the stouts. The food was good, came out quick and was a generous...More

Spent a night here with a work colleague. We both like IPA's but get nervous about 80 IBUs and 12% alcohol. We found a great selection of beers - I'd recommend the P-Wing at 60 IBU's or the Frog Hopping IPA...accompanied by Picadillo Queso. Cannot...More

Beer was great. Food was FABULOUS. It's a lot of bar type food, but on a 5 star level. Flavor combinations are top notch.

Went because I had heard rave reviews of beer and food, half was true. The burger was decent but the selection of beer, for myself, was limited. Some are canned and you cannot taste them before you buy. It was a one stop for me.

Nice draft selection, more than indicated on their web page. The Place has indoor and outdoor seating. The food is good, typical pub grub. Staff is very pleasant.

This was our last stop when visiting Deep Ellum. Ordered a queso dip as an appetizer (which was way to spicy for your average gringa to enjoy) and the TABLE sandwich (amazing egg-y goodness). I’d definitely visit again, opting out of the queso next time.
