Community premieres sizable new space in Pegasus Park

It's a big year ahead for Community Beer Co., as the brewery begins its tenth year of operation in Dallas. And, what better way to kick things off than to open the doors to a new building that anchors what's destined to become a local craft beer showplace.

Community debuted its brand in January 2013, after leasing a 21,600 square foot space on Inspiration Dr. in the Design District. Eight years later, the company announced plans for a big move, with the destination being a 70,000 square foot multi-use facility at 3110 Commonwealth Dr. in Pegasus Park.

"Big," if you haven't caught on by now, is the operative word here. Everything about Community's new home represents a massive upgrade compared to where the company did business before. Downstairs taproom...big. Upstairs taproom...big. Outdoor biergarten...big. Production area...really big. I haven't seen the barrel room/event space, but we'll just assume it's plenty big as well.

In other words, if you're in search of a spot for a large-scale craft beer gathering, Community's got ya covered.

Community standards like Mosaic IPA, Texas Lager and the new Texas-Style Bock
are available on tap or to-go, with cans and crowlers being take-home options.

On top of what there is to see now, there's still more to come. It's all about the beer at present, as patrons can enjoy a pint on the patio or in one of the two taprooms (each of which provides expansive views of the brewhouse). But eventually, further site amenities will include a live music venture outdoors, as well as a full-service restaurant called the Community Kitchen indoors.

Oh, and there's also the promise of wine and distilled spirits one day being created in house as well. In the meantime, though, beverage options consist of more than 15 beers on tap, along with pours of the brewery's Brite Side hard seltzer.

As for an official unveiling, the brewery's Grand Opening Bierfest is set for Saturday, March 5. The festivities will feature live music, food from Chef Kent Rathbun and the release of two commemorative beers. Tickets are on sale now at a cost of $15pp, or $30pp for premier privileges (click here to purchase).

If you can't wait to check things out, know that Community is now open six days a week, with service hours Tuesday through Sunday. Visit the brewery's website at for more details.
