Texas-brewed craft beer and brewpub based in Taylor, TX
“We are a locally-owned, people-powered, solar-powered brewery in historic downtown Taylor, Texas. Our brewpub features a variety of Texas craft beer paired with BBQ, pizza, tacos and more. We have live music every weekend, and we’ve hosted numerous community events and charity fundraisers. Our taproom opened last year, and we did $230K in 2016 (May-Dec.) revenue with just on-premise sales. Now we’ve reached maximum capacity, so we’re expanding from a 3-barrel brewhouse to a 30-barrel brewhouse.”
CO-FOUNDER AND CEO, TEXAS BEER CO
At Texas Beer Co, we are all about the people. We originally launched with the generous support of over 300 Kickstarter supporters and have quickly become a staple of Taylor. Now, we want to put our beer on shelves all across Texas and beyond by building an expansion brewery and canning facility that will enable widespread distribution. Our ultimate goal is to become the Texas beer, paying tribute to our beloved state with every sip.
