The 9 Best Breweries in Fort Worth

North Texas’s beer scene is thriving, with new microbreweries and tasting rooms opening seemingly every month. Today, the region is home to over 80 brewing companies, which is hard to believe considering that, 15 years ago, there were barely any breweries to be found at all. Luckily for Fort Worth-bound travelers, Cowtown is flush with cool craft breweries that are making waves in the larger beer world. From small, family-owned establishments to large-scale beer havens, here are some of the best breweries to check out in Fort Worth:

Boasting the biggest air-conditioned indoor taproom (with 24 total taps) in Fort Worth, Wild Acre Brewing Company is a true experience. Apart from serving up staple beers like the Texas Blonde, Ranch Style Pils, and T-Hawk IPA (and don’t miss sampling the Agave Americana, a super-refreshing, citrusy ale with hints of blue agave nectar), Wild Acre has bocce ball courts, cornhole, a live music stage, and plenty of picnic tables and grassy areas where you can sit and sip your cares away. Check their events calendar for their “Sip and Paint” events, where you’ll get to create a 9x12 painting and design a couple coasters; and, every Saturday, $15 gets you four beers and a complimentary Wild Acre pint glass.

HopFusion founders and owners Macy Moore and Matt Hill are incredibly passionate about fine craft beer, and that passion is evident everywhere you look at this beloved brewery, from their impressive fermentation room to their thoughtfully curated six-pack and growler selection. All their annual beers are excellent, but you can’t go to HopFusion without trying their most popular creation, the Feisty Blonde, a bronze/golden ale that combines deeply aromatic orange blossom honey with notes of raw brown sugar and pure Mexican vanilla. The taproom is open six days a week, from Tuesday through Sunday.

Fort Brewery & Pizza

Formerly known as Chimera Brewing Company, Fort Brewery & Pizza pairs their expertly brewed beers with homemade pizzas created from generational family recipes—take your pick between potato & rosemary, Diavola (shredded mozzarella and spicy salami), the Woodsman (roasted garlic, rosemary, mushrooms, potatoes, goat cheese, and a fresh-cracked egg), and more yummy pies. Beer-wise, opt for the Grey Eagle (a Hefeweizen featuring hints of clove, banana, vanilla, and bubble gum), the Clara (a Kolsch), or the Moonrider, a full-bodied, roasty, malty oatmeal stout. Laid-back and friendly, Fort Brewery is the best place in town to indulge your beer and pizza cravings.

Phone +1 817-222-0177

Martin House is the ideal spot to spend a lazy Saturday hanging out, playing cornhole, and sampling stellar brews at their scenic location along the Trinity River banks. This popular brewery offers eight year-round beers, including the Friday IPA, True Love (a raspberry sour ale), and the Salty Lady. The latter is their interpretation of a Gose, a salty, tart German-style beer, that’s fermented with their house saison yeast and finished with coriander; the result is nothing short of divine. Bring your dog and the kiddos and come play.
