Deep Ellum Brewery's First Weekly Tour is Tonight; Can't We Just Make This Place a Bar?

The Deep Ellum Brewing Company continues to build out its presence in the Dallas neighborhood known for its iconic pizza and old-school tattoos. Tonight they'll host their first weeknight brewery tour, which will continue every Thursday from 5 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.

To court potential customers (as if the beer wasn't enough), the hop heads behind beers like Dream Crusher Double Rye and the Deep Ellum IPA -- a beer I see taking over taps across Dallas -- have wrangled the Whiskey Folk Ramblers into dropping their twangy alt-country hooks in the beer garden. Food will be available from Buzz Brews.

The beer garden is relatively new. The DEBC had a kick-off party the last day of March with another band and grub from So-Cal Tacos. A number of events have been hosted in the space since. You might wonder, with such a nice outdoor space, why the DEBC doesn't become a full blown bar instead of teasing us with large cover charges and "beer samples" two hours at a time.

"If we can change the laws we'd love to be a brew pub," Brand and Sales Ninja Tait Lifto says. But if you brew too much beer in Texas, you're classified as a brewery -- not a brew pub. Breweries can host tastings, give out samples, and talk beer all day long, but they can't sell you a golden malty drop. It's a shame. A full of brewpub serving decent beer would fill a niche in Deep Ellum.

Censored again?  Really!  Do you have eyes?  Do you read some of these comments?  Some of these folks are borderline retarded?  eSept for Mervis.

My friend Tony told me about this single mom that made $4164 in a few weeks on the computer. All she did was work for a few hours a day online. You can see how she did it here lazycash29.com

The laws are idiotic, does anyone know if there's ever been a movement to repeal that? I would think plenty of mojo for this would be coming out of Austin.

Anheuser-Busch, them and their distributors, still have their money in lots of legislation in states, particularly in the southern areas.

Google "Open the Taps" if you'd like to find about the fight for better Texas beer laws.
