Do you offer brewery tours?
Not in the traditional sense of a weekly or bi-weekly “tour” (usually 2-3 hours long including a few pints and a glass). We have a large taproom at our brewery that’s open 7 days-a-week (see above for hours). ALL of the beer served in our taproom is created and brewed just behind the bar in our brewery area which is view-able from the taproom. If you wish to tour our brewery area, ask someone at the bar, if someone is available we would be happy to give you the inside scoop on our craft.
Do you have food available?
We do not offer a food menu. We have menus from local restaurants who will deliver for free (or they are literally across the street). You are also welcome to have food delivered to the taproom or you can bring it with you.
Are you dog/pet friendly?
We love pets, we have some furry family members ourselves. We welcome chill pets on the patio, just please keep them leashed and with you. There is even this – https://www.facebook.com/groups/282280542246216/
Are kids or under 21 allowed?
Yes. We are family friendly up until around 9pm or so. We have a few non-alcoholic options available as well.
Can I rent out space for a private event?
Yes! We have a variety of options available, from renting out the entire taproom, renting out the brewery area or simply setting up a group event. Contact our taproom manager at email@example.com.
Can I reserve a picnic table(s) for a party?
We can, with some exceptions. If the party is on a Friday or Saturday late afternoon/evening, it’s tough for us to guarantee a table (considering those are our busy hours) – but we will certainly do our best. Contact our taproom manager at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Can I buy beer to-go from the brewery?
Where can I find your beer?
Either right here in the taproom or at more than 5000 locations throughout Texas. We are unable to tell you specifically where it's located or on-tap at any given moment (since we don't receive that data back from bars/restaurants/grocery stores/liquor stores.....).
We are available at most main grocery stores, beer stores, liquor stores.
Do you offer anything other than beer?
We have a large selection of non-alcoholic options as well as Wine, Cider and Mead.
What do you have on-tap right now?
We usually average 19 beers on-tap on any given day. Between annual (core) beers and expirimental on-offs. We've created well over 180 beers at The Hop.
Here is what is currently on-tap.
Can I bring my own beer/wine?
No. We are not permitted to have ANY alcoholic beverages at the brewery other than what we produce or sell on-site.
Can I buy beer to-go and consume it on your patio?
No. Any packaged beer MUST be consumed off our premises per Texas Law.
Do you have live music?
We do, every Saturday at 7pm we host local talent on our taproom stage. Check out our calendar for a listing.
Do you allow smoking?
Per the city of Fort Worth ordinance, we do not allow smoking inside and are limited outside where we are able to allow smoking. We do have no smoking signs where it’s not allowed. Essentially it’s no smoking within 20ft of the patio doors.
Do you offer flights of your beer?
We have a custom flight (any 4 beers on-tap). Here is a list of what is currently on tap.
How can I get your brew at my bar/restaurant?
We are represented in Texas by several distributors and self-distributed in Tarrant County.
Contact us at email@example.com and let us know your location information.
Are you hiring?
We are a pretty slim team considering the amount of beer we produce, we are not currently hiring but will post when we are looking for another great person to join our team.
Do you need volunteers?
Due to insurance coverage, we are unable to take advantage of volunteer labor. Plus, it's way more relaxing in the Taproom.
Are you a brewpub or a brewery?
We hold a brewpub license. We distribute beer outside of our brewery in kegs and cans along with offering small-batch taproom only brews and beer-to-go through our taproom.
Can I ride my bike to the brewery?
Uhm, yea. We are maybe the most bike friendly place you are going to find. The brewery was founded on a bike ride. We don’t have bike parking on the street, we encourage you to bring your bike up onto the patio. If you have a large group, we will open up the brewery area for bike parking. We offer $1 off your tab if you ride a bike to the brewery (available anytime the taproom is open).
How long have you been open?
We began distributing beer in the summer of 2016 and officially opened the taproom in late November 2016.
How did you get started?
Maybe the best way to say it is to show it. Check this out.
