A look at 2018 North Texas production numbers

(Click image to view a larger version).

Each year the Brewers Association releases production data in the May/June issue of The New Brewer. The above chart compiles that information for breweries operating in North Texas, breaking it down into subgroups based on size.

Note that not all breweries publish their production numbers and some only share estimates, so the actual breakdown above may vary slightly compared to what is shown.

  • Smaller breweries dominate the North Texas landscape, with the majority producing less than 1000 barrels per year. On top of that, the number of breweries producing more than 1000 barrels has not changed significantly over the past three years.
  • Current and soon-to-be adopted legislation caps taproom sales, including beer sold to-go, at 5000 barrels per year. Only 10 local breweries open during all or part of 2018 made more than 5000 barrels, meaning most could have sold their entire output on-site without being up against the cap.
  • Three of the five largest breweries in North Texas are owned by other entities: Revolver Brewing (MillerCoors), Deep Ellum Brewing Co. (CANarchy Craft Beer Collective), Four Corners Brewing Co. (Constellation Brands).
