If you are ever looking for a weekend roadtrip – just a short drive from Dallas, Texas – then consider an easy drive out to Cedar Creek Brewery in Seven Points, Texas.
Cedar Creek Brewery was founded in 2010 by a man in search of the perfect craft beer. Jim Elliott had recently moved to the area just southeast of Dallas and had the hardest time finding good, quality Texas craft beer. His solution? Brew some himself!
With a little hard work and ingenuity, Cedar Creek Brewery was born. Elliott brought on master brewer Damon Lewis, and between the two of them, the dream came to life. Using old dairy equipment, Cedar Creek began brewing amazing beer on a shoestring budget. What started as a very small operation in 2010 has blossomed in the last 5 years, gaining national recognition at the Great American Beer Festival, expanded into a larger operation, added a taproom for visitors, and so much more.
If you drive out to Seven Points, you’ll enjoy the taproom complete with all the signature, small batch brews. And while you’re there, given the Plowboys Café a try, the in-house eatery that’s big on flavor and small town charm. Want to take some beer for the road? You’ll notice that all the beer is “bottled” in cans – not glass bottles. Cedar Creek does this to ensure quality first and foremost. Light and oxygen have a harder time entering the aluminum can than it does glass. Also, it’s more environmentally friendly and oh-so-much more portable for a trip to the lake.
State & Allen loves supporting this brewery because it’s got the “American Dream” written all over it! Not to mention, the beer is pretty darn good. One of our favorites is the Dankosaurus IPA – with hop flavors of citrus and pine and a strong malt backbone - and it’s now available on tap at State & Allen! Try Cedar Creek Brewery and other Dallas craft beers on tap at State & Allen. You never know what new beer you’ll fall in love with!
