Plaza Midwood - Brewery Location

Our original Taproom + Brewery location has been in our family since 1982. We revitalized an old warehouse in a neighborhood we have always loved to create a warm, welcoming space that celebrates the funky vibes of our community. It's an active brewery where all of our beer is made, so you'll often find the taproom brimming with the smells of that day's fresh brew - along with the delicious offerings of our resident food truck, The Dumpling Lady.
