Texas Beer Co. Set To Open
Wednesday, May 4, 2016 1:00 am
In addition to everything going on Saturday, one of Taylor’s most anticipated new businesses plans to open.
At noon on Saturday, the Texas Beer Co. will cut the ribbon and officially open the taproom in the McCrory Timmerman building at Main and Second.
Ian Davis, one of the partners in the venture, said it’s been a long 2 years.
“We’re excited — beyond excited — to finally get open,” he said.
He invited everyone who wants to be a part of the event to attend the ribbon cutting, which will be hosted by the Greater Taylor Chamber of Commerce.
He said the Pilot Brew House is still under construction so there will be only limited quantities of Texas Beer Co’s locally brewed Texas Pale.
“When that’s gone, we will serve craft beers from some of our favorite Texas breweries,” he said. “Our Pilot Brew House build out should be completed by June. That’s the next step — scale up and serve more quantities of our cold Texas Beer later this summer.”
“Taylor shares in the excitement for the grand opening of the Texas Beer Company in our historic downtown,” said Taylor Mayor Jesse Ancira. “With the addition of this new business, the revitalization of downtown Taylor is expanding and we look forward to the continuous growth in the area and recognition for Taylor Made Texas.”
The Texas Beer Co. got incentive funding from the City of Taylor to help with the Pilot Brewery and Taproom, and from the Taylor Economic Development Corp. to build a twelve barrell brewery and distribute “Taylor Made” craft beers throughout the state.
The taproom will have regular hours 4-10 p.m. Thursday and Friday, and noon-10 pm Saturday. Saturday the taproom will host live music until midnight.
