A Fort Worth family for generations, the folks at Fort Brewery boast they've created some of the most original craft beers in these parts. Offering everything from lighter Hefeweizen IPAs and Kolsch beers to richer lagers and stouts, you must try everything on their menu. Los Muertos, a Mexican-style Lager garnished with salt and lime, will become one of your favorites. Their 30-minute guided tour, by appointment only, is a great way to learn about the beer-making process while tasting their latest creations.
HOPFUSION ALE WORKS
Starting as a home brewery, this southside establishment went on to win national beer awards and be voted the Best Brewery in Fort Worth multiple times. Founded upon a passion for the art of light-bodied ales and darker-bodied lagers and barleywines, HopFusion Ale Works distributes to over 1,800 locations in Texas. Check out their Infusion Series – only on Friday and Saturday – where they add a variety of ingredients and base beers to create a totally unique flavor and experience in their taproom.
FUNKY PICNIC BREWERY & CAFÉ
Funky Picnic Brewery & Cafe offers classic styles and off-the-wall ideas, serving up a continually rotating lineup of brews. Sure, they have classic ales, pilsners, and lagers, but they also craft wheat wines, rye porters, milk stouts (including a brew with peanut butter and chocolate) and a decadent Belgian-style triple with blueberries and maple syrup. Can't decide on just one? Then try their "Whole Picnic" – a taste of every beer on tap.
These are just a few of the breweries near our apartments in Benbrook, Texas. With nearby casual dining spots and shops, countless adventures are minutes away. Contact us today for more information about our well-maintained community.
