For those who enjoy a nice, frosty beer and sampling locally brewed beverages, these three breweries in the Arlington area are well worth a visit. Stop by one of our favorite breweries, and contact The Watson today to schedule your tour!
1. Division Brewing (506 E. Main St., Arlington).
Division Brewing, the oldest locally-owned brewery in Arlington, offers a full, varied list of craft beers. It brews blonde, wheat, and India pale ales; amber beers, porters, and stouts; and a selection of “sour” beers. The sour beers are the brainchild of co-founder Sean Cooley, who has a passion for traditional home brewing, cooking, and food preservation methods. The other co-founders are husband and wife team Tami and Wade Waddington, who both worked in the finance industry until they tasted authentic home-brewed craft beer and fell in love with it.
The tap room is open Wednesdays through Saturdays. Brewery tours are offered on Saturday afternoons.
2. Legal Draft Beer Co. (500 E. Division St., Arlington).
As one might guess from the name, one of the founders of Legal Draft, Greg, was a trial lawyer before entering the craft beer brewing business. Its brew master was trained in Germany, so you know you’re getting quality craft beer at Legal Draft. Located about a mile away from AT&T Stadium, Legal Draft offers brewery tours on Saturday afternoons. The tap room serves beers on Thursdays through Sundays.
The five core brews on offer at Legal Draft are Amber Lager, Blonde Lager, Hefeweizen, India Pale Ale, and Stout. All of them have “legal” names like Accused, Hung Jury, and Chief Justice.
3. Wild Acre Brewery (1734 E El Paso St #190, Fort Worth).
Named after the legendary “Hell’s Half Acre” of the Wild West, the craft brewery has outdoor seating that’s dog- and child-friendly. Visitors who are at least 21 years of age can tour the distillery. Big screen TVs are tuned to college football during the season. On weekends, food trucks and live music make for a festive atmosphere.
Wild Acre's five core beers are Billy Jenkins Session Bock, Moonlight Shine (a wheat pale ale), a traditional American stout, a coconut American stout, and an amber/red ale named Tarantula Hawk.
