Locally Owned, Locally Grown.

TAPROOM HOURS: Thur & Fri 4-10pm & Sat noon-midnight


We're a locally owned brewery that loves everything about Texas. The mission of the Texas Beer Company (TBC) is to brew delicious, locally sourced beer that makes Texans proud.


Our family first moved to Texas in 1883, settling on a farm in the Blackland Prairie just outside of Taylor. Now five generations later, we're getting back to our Texas roots and building a brewery that uses local Texas ingredients whenever possible. While local ingredients cost more, we believe local, fresh beer tastes better. Locally sourced beer supports Texas farmers and puts money back into our local economy, so we invite you to enjoy a true Texas beer!

We've expanded our operations and moved to the McCrory-Timmerman building in downtown Taylor, TX. This beautiful, historic red-brick building on Main Street is the perfect intersection of Texas' proud agricultural history and our exciting craft beer future. Taylor has some of the best farm land in Texas, and we believe local grain from Taylor's Blackland Prairie will help produce some of the best beer in Texas.

Using our current half-barrel, all grain brewing system, we've brewed Blondes, Ambers, IPAs, Porters, Kolschs and Pale Ales. We'd conducted tastings in Austin and Taylor over the last two years and received an enthusiastic response, so we're excited about this opportunity to scale up and meet growing demand.

Our TBC Kickstarter campaign offered various rewards, and we hope you'll wear our t-shirts and hats so your friends and family know that you're a proud member of the Texas craft beer movement.

Here are some of our preliminary can designs:
