Looking for something to do in Fort Worth TX? We recently visited and taste tested craft beers at one of the Breweries in Fort worth, TX. The brewery is named Bankhead Brewing Co.

As you may know I prefer the darker style, and my wife leans toward the hazy IPA. We arrived early-afternoon and decided to split a five sample flight.


Brews we sampled

The first thing to comment on is the high number of in house brews they offer at all times. Some locations have 6-8, they had 16 active taps. And a good variety of styles.


We arrived early-afternoon and decided to split a five sample flight.

Rogers Anomaly – Stout Brewed with star anise, TCHO cocoa nibs and cold brew coffee concentrate

Pequette Porter – Robust Porter

Longhorn Devil Went Down to Texas – Red Ale Burnt orange color, with rich malt character and a huge hop aroma and flavor

Off the Map DIPA – Imperial Double

Mile Marker Ten – New England Style Pale

Wheels off IPA – West Coast IPA

I ordered the Porter and the Rogers Anomaly. The Roger’s was smooth because of the Nitro. No one flavor dominated the beer. The Porter had mild flavors also. Of the two my favorite on this day was the Porter. I also sampled the Longhorn Devil which was a little hoppy for me, and the Mile Marker Ten which I could taste the grapefruit more than the pineapple or coconut. It was okay.

My lovely wife sampled the Longhorn Devil went down to Texas, the Mile marker Ten, and Wheels Off IPA. Least favorite was the Mile Marker Ten. It has grapefruit, pineapple and coconut flavors. She is not a fan of coconut so it did not make the second taste. Her favorite was the Wheels Off IPA.

They also have their own brand of wines on the menu. We did not sample any of the wines.

This brewery has a full service bar.

Atmosphere


Bankhead Brewery in Fort Worth feels more like a restaurant that serves delicious beer versus a brewery that serves food. The waitstaff takes your order rather than ordering directly from the bartenders as you do in most breweries.

They also happen to have only indoor seating. No outdoor patio for the puppies.

As we were leaving a jazz band was setting up. We will return for the jazz music some night.

Food


Delicious, large handmade pretzel

Bankhead Brewery in Fort Worth has a full kitchen offering a full list of appitizers, pizza, hamburgers and more. We sampled the pretzel which was much lighter than traditional pretzels. It was less chewy and more airy. The cheese dipping sauce paired well. The pretzel received two thumbs up!






Merchandise

Bankhead Brewery had several shirts designed around a particular beer. The artwork and effort were apparent. They had t-shirts, glasses and hats for each brew.







About the Authors

When I first started dating my wife, we enjoyed popular domestic beers. I am sure visiting a craft brewery was her idea. Our taste buds rejoiced as we sampled the various brews. It did not take long before our tastes diverted – the darker ambers, reds, porters, and stouts for me, IPA, Hazy IPA, and pilsners for her.

When we retired, we decided to visit as many of our National Parks across this country. It seemed a natural fit to visit breweries in the many cities we travel through as we drive to the parks.

We currently reside in Fort Worth, Texas. Texas has about 300 micro-breweries, and the Metroplex has over 80. Which means we have a whole lot of day trips ahead of us to visit our local breweries.
