Deep Ellum Brewery Company – Dallas, TX

Deep Ellum Brewery Company

I few weeks ago I decided to take a trip to Deep Ellum, a neighborhood in Dallas where we find Deep Ellum Brewery Company. I had heard of this place from a few local craft beer makers, but could never confirm its existence, since it has only been in business a few months. So I decided to set out on this journey in hopes of locating this mythical micro-brewery. Given the name Deep Ellum, I had conjured images in my mind of what this place may look like. For some reason, I thought of the epic Hollywood film Lord of the Rings, where I would find the location somewhere in Middle-Earth between Mordor and Rohan. As I drove to the general area, I noticed the neighbor appeared to be in a state of transition from industrial to a weird Austin/Seattle Vibe scenery. Nevertheless, I had arrived. The brewery was small but inviting and intimate, the cover price was $10 for four 12oz beers plus a souvenir glass. Being a hophead, I went straight for the IPA. To my disappoint they had ran out before I even arrived, I couldn’t tell you if it was that good or if low quantities had been stocked. Leaving few options of beers I was interested in, I decided to try their specialty beer Farmhouse Wit.

The witbier or wheat beer was blended with a saison (season) style beer. Aahhh….I must say, this was the perfect choice for a hot summer day. The beer was a light earth tone color, with a slight fruity taste, yet a bit hoppy for a witbier. It was a delicate balance that all came together, hence the name, farmhouse wit, a great blend with rye and wheat. Deep Ellum, I must say you got something special going on here, keep it up!

On a side note, I also had the opportunity of meeting back stage (technically front stage) a local Texas Band, Driftin’ Outlaws. They played at Deep Ellum Brewery that same afternoon. Just wanted to send a quick shot out to them.

  1. We have to convene an emergency meeting of the council of the Keg Tap and send the leaders of Men, Elves and Dwarves to find Deep Ellum’s lost IPAs. This is serious. I hope the Dark Lord Sauron isnt having a summer BBQ sipping on hophead dreams.

    • HAHAHA MY PRECIOUSSSSS IPA!!!!

    • I agree. I will be back in DFW in mid-October for a wedding. I’d love to hit Deep Ellum and check this place out. I’m very familiar with the bars and clubs down there, but this is new and as-of-yet “undiscovered country.” Jakob, you and I should have a meeting.

  2. I think it was the elves that drank it :) Damn Elves!
