Vector Brewing set to celebrate Second Anniversary

Vector Brewing of Dallas is set to host its Second Anniversary party on Saturday, April 2, an event celebrating everything the company has experienced during its first two years of operation - awards, an engagement, fancy dinners, collaborations, concerts and even the return to normal.

The brewpub opened in spring 2020, at the dawn of the pandemic, when customers couldn't come inside. After having just finished construction, Vector had to completely change its entire business strategy and space to accommodate the early days of Covid-19. That meant to-go service, packaged beer and a handful of unknowns.

“We all stood in a circle and held hands,” says Veronica Bradley, co-owner of Vector. “I think there were only seven of us - nine if you include our children. And, we had no idea what to expect."

What happened next was, over 100 orders came flooding in within the first three minutes. The crew had never used any of their systems, so they scrambled to shut ordering off. It took them over four hours to catch up.

“We needed 15 people, at least,” says Craig Bradley, co-owner of Vector. “Two of our friends stopped by to congratulate us, and we hired them on the spot. They still work here today.”

Vector's upcoming birthday bash will feature live music, food vendors, and an artisan market, not to mention a selection of over 20 beers crafted by Head Brewer Tomás Gutierrez.

Rare barrel-aged beers will be among the offerings, some of which have been aging since before the brewpub opened. Plus, two new bottle releases will be available:

  • Domus Persica (6.8% ABV):  foeder-aged golden sour ale with local Texas peaches, Tahitian vanilla bean and cinnamon.
  • Neil Kvass Tyson: Death by Black Hole (6.5% ABV):  oak-aged mixed culture kvass farmhouse ale with Andean blackberry, blueberry, açai berry and black currants.
