WE ARE TAYLOR, TEXAS
Texas Owned. Texas Brewed. Texas Proud.
We are a locally-owned, people-powered and solar-powered brewery located in the heart of the Blackland Prairie. Our pilot brewhouse was funded by a Kickstarter campaign, and our expansion brewery has a 20,000 watt solar array. Taylor also has some of the best farm land in the state, and our long term goal is to work with local farmers to start growing local barley to brew fresh, locally-sourced Texas beer.
"The City of Taylor decided to partner with Texas Beer Co because they are the anchor and catalyst for our downtown revitalization efforts. They serve as a community meeting hub, donate to local charities and have helped inspire other small businesses to open in our historic downtown district."
WE ARE A DESTINATION FOR TAYLOR LOCALS
Our brewpub opened in historic downtown Taylor in May 2016, and already we can’t keep up with demand.
Locally owned craft beer puts money back into our local economy, so we invite you to enjoy a true Texas beer!
Customers can swing by Texas Beer Co to pair their craft beers with crawfish, barbeque, and more. We're all about the perfect pairing.
Every week we host local musicians and other fun events to bring the community closer together and showcase Texas artists.
MEET OUR BEERS
Using our current three-barrel pilot brewhouse, we’ve brewed Blondes, IPAs, and more. Now we’re expanding to a bigger 30-barrel distribution brewery to scale up and meet growing demand. Our new brewery will start canning in Fall 2017.
Pecos Amber Lager
A crisp amber steam lager utilizing premium 2-row and Red X and lightly hopped with Amarillo hops. Like a fine West Texas Sunset, this beer embodies the spirt and boldness of Texas. 5.7% ABV.
Local Blonde Lager
Nicknamed "The Local" in our taproom, this crisp, refreshing, and easy to drink lager is brewed for all Texans to enjoy. 5.1% ABV.
Pace Bend Pale Ale
A well balanced Ale with a malt forward profile infused with a well-balanced blend of Amarillo and Cascade hops. This beer is perfectly balanced to inspire a day at the lake or a night under the stars. 5.3% ABV.
Hoppy Duck IPA
Combining El Dorado, Citra, Falconers Flight, and Cascade Hops for a bright and delicious tasting IPA that pays tribute to our hometown Taylor Ducks. Boiled for 90 minutes, the malt forward foundation supports a flavorful citrus hop profile that is not too bitter and a clean West Coast Ale finish. 6.5% ABV.
A Texas style porter, rich and malty, yet extremely easy to drink. It blends chocolate and roasted barley with subtle notes of coffee malt, creating refreshing and delicious flavor profiles. This beer's dark body pays tribute to the fertile farmland of Taylor's Blacklands prairie. 6.0% ABV.
King Grackle Stout
A favorite of our brew crew, this is a bold and flavorful Stout. Steeped in rich chocolate and coffee flavors and lots roasted speciality malts, raw cocoa nibs, and a hint of tropical hops. 9.0% ABV.
WE'RE YOUNG AND GROWING FAST
We officially opened our doors just early last year in 2016 but have quickly become a Taylor, TX staple.

OUR JOURNEY SO FAR
In the last year we've focused on building a community footprint with customers coming in-house to enjoy our beers. Now, we want to expand with our own canning system and have our beers all over Texas shelves and beyond.
