Steam Theory to close in Dallas, June 19

Four years after debuting in Trinity Groves, a multi-use entertainment destination in Dallas, Steam Theory Brewing Co. will shutter at the close of business on Sunday, June 19.

Founded by Jonathan Barrows and Chuck Homola, Steam Theory opened with backing from the former host of ABC's The Bachelor, Chris Harrison. Initially, the concept paired beers with culinary selections curated by Chef Michael Weinstein, but over time Steam Theory shifted its focus to pub fare featuring Neapolitan pizza.

Steam Theory's name was derived from the idea of taking an old-school approach and applying it to the modern day. This fusion of elements was symbolized by the decor of the space, which took on a steampunk vibe.

According to a social media post, the business was unable to overcome financial difficulties encountered due to the "global pandemic, the great resignation of 2021, a recession and inflation."

Despite the closure of the physical location, a report says the Steam Theory brand will carry on by way of a "virtual brewery" model, with beers produced and distributed by a North Carolina-based company.
