Brews we sampled

Two drafts on table

Looking for something to do in Fort Worth, Texas? We recently visited and taste tested craft beers at one of the best breweries in Fort Worth, Texas. The brewery is named Cowtown Brewing Company.

Cowtown Brewery carries 16 brews with some being standard and a few rotating for the season.

As you may know I prefer the darker style, and my wife leans toward the hazy IPA.

The waitstaff will happily provide samples as well as the availability of flights. This is not our first visit to Cowtown, so my wife and I both have our favorites identified. I like the O’Dell Irish Re Ale (named after the owners son) and my wife likes the Moondance. Depending on the weather and what we are eating, I also enjoy their Grip It & Rip It, the Damn Near Kilt ‘Em and the High Brau. My wife’s second favorite is the Horse With No Name.


The inside has a long bar and a couple dozen tables. Outdoors they have covered picnic tables and a covered stage for live music. The wait staff work as a team and you can order from any of them that pass by. The atmosphere is relaxed and welcoming.


Their moto is Great Beer deserves Great Barbecue and we confirm they hit this mark. We love their brisket queso, brisket nachos, the sausage mac & cheese, the combo meat plates are enough for two to split. Two thumbs up for the food from us.

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.
