Oak Cliff’s namesake brewery makes its debut next month.
Oak Cliff Brewing Co. is the project of Oak Cliff native Joel Denton and partners, who built a brewery and taproom at Tyler Station.
It is a 900-gallon capacity brewery on the second-story of a 100-year-old industrial building. It took 13 tons of structural steel to shore up the cavernous room that hold the brewhouse and its 10-ton tanks.
“We knew coming in that it would be very challenging to put a brewery here,” Denton told the Advocate in December.
Denton began brewing in his garage in 2007, and he began winning home-brew competitions. Plans for a brewery started in 2015.
The brewery is throwing a grand-opening celebration from noon-7 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 1.
But you can get a taste before then at one of several launch events, including one at Parker Barrows in the Bishop Arts District starting at 6 tonight.
