A look at 2022 North Texas production numbers

Click image to enlarge.

Presented is an updated chart showing a breakdown of brewery sizes in North Texas based on production data reported to the Brewers Association and published in the May/June 2023 issue of The New Brewer.

Note that not all brewing companies provide their numbers, while others report numbers combining multiple locations. As a result, the number of brewing companies represented in the data is not equal to the total number of breweries open and operating at any given time.

Inside the numbers:

The large-size brewery tier in North Texas, based on production (shown alphabetically):
  • Community Beer Co. of Dallas.
  • Deep Ellum Brewing Co. of Dallas.
  • Martin House Brewing Co. of Fort Worth.
  • Rahr & Sons Brewing Co. of Fort Worth.
  • Revolver Brewing of Granbury.
  • Tupps Brewery of McKinney.
Tier movement
  • Two breweries advanced from the "very small" to the "small" production tier in 2022 - False Idol Brewing of North Richland Hills and Siren Rock Brewing Co. of Rockwall. One brewery dropped from the large to mid-size production tier - Four Corners Brewing Co. of Dallas.
Year-to-year production change - overall (based on those reporting numbers in 2021 and 2022).
  • Overall production in North Texas was down roughly 7% in 2022.
  • Comparison: Overall industry production growth was flat nationally, according to the Brewers Association.
Year-to-year production change - by tier (based on those reporting numbers in 2021 and 2022).
  • Large (> 10,000 bbl): -13%.
  • Mid-size (5000-10,000 bbl): 0%
  • Small (1000-5000 bbl): -6%.
  • Very Small (< 1000 bbl): +21%.
  • Comparison: While individual percentages for local tiers are inflated, the general trend of larger breweries making less beer, and smaller breweries making more beer, falls in line with results shared during the Brewers Association's "2023 State of the Industry" presentation.
Largest year-to-year production gain (based on those reporting numbers in 2021 and 2022).
  • Manhattan Project Beer Co. of Dallas had the largest reported gain in raw barrels produced locally for 2022.
