OUR BREWS

Community Beer Company offers high-quality craft beer to the Dallas-Ft. Worth Metroplex. 

We enjoy sessionable beer -- meaning beer you can enjoy on a regular basis -- and will offer several year-round offerings.  However, we also like to "push the envelope" and create dynamic beers that connoisseurs and "Beer Nerds" will love.  We’ve selected our favorite classic styles from different countries around the world and have perfected our own versions; we hope you enjoy them as much as we do! 

Our beer can be found throughout the Metroplex and at various events at the brewery through our tours, brewery rentals and support of charities and the arts.  

Cheers!

We keep our beer cold from tank to tap to ensure freshness.

Mosaic  IPA

This is not your average IPA.  From the incredible nose, to the amazing finish, this IPA is one that both session drinkers and beer nerds alike will love.

We’re full on board the hopwagon with this big American-style IPA.  However, it is not designed to blow your head off with overpowering hop bitterness.  Instead, Mosaic IPA is an extremely well-balanced brew that showcases its unique hop aroma and flavor.

This beer gets its name from a new hop variety named “Mosaic,” which is predominantly where the immense, raw hop aroma and flavor is derived.  Mosaic IPA has a noticeable malt backbone to help soften the high level of hop bitterness and flavor, while keeping the body fairly light.

The word "Mosaic" is also representative of the diverse range of individuals that make up our community.  It's perfect in every way!  

Tasting Notes:

The deep golden/light amber color of this IPA comes from the use of a blend of English Maris Otter and American pale base malts.  Sparing use of English crystal malt lends some caramel sweetness to help balance the hefty bitterness.  Heady aromas of blueberry, pine, citrus and tropical fruit are the result of blending Mosaic hops with several other delicious American hop varieties.  For being a large, hoppy beer it is quite drinkable, in part due to the balancing act of alcohol, malt complexity, and enormous American hop character.

Public Ale

An English-style Extra Special Bitter (ESB).  The perfect pub pint to share with your mates.  Public Ale's name is an ode to a sessionable style that not only has been commonly found in English public houses for centuries, but can be enjoyed today by everyone within our Community.  

ESB was originally brewed by the English brewery Fuller, Smith & Turner of London (Fuller’s ESB) in the mid 20th century as a winter ale.  At Community Beer Company we appreciate this timeless, quaffable beer style and will bring it to you year round as our “Public Ale.”  In reverence to the best ESB’s of England, we brew it with nearly all English ingredients: 100% English malts, a blend of English, German and American hops, our house ale English yeast strain and of course our own crystal clear, filtered water.  The subtle complexities of this beer begin with a base of 100% Maris Otter English pale malt – prized for its superior, rich, bready taste – which adds a malt complexity that is difficult to achieve with modern, higher yielding malt varieties.  English crystal malt increases the malt complexity, brings amber color and some residual sweetness, all of which mingles well with the fully expressed fruity esters developed by our house ale yeast during fermentation.  While the hops are noticeable, they are part of an integrated whole, leaving the beer very well balanced and drinkable.

Vienna Lager

Community Beer Company’s deference to classic, old world European lagers manifests as our year round offering Community Vienna Lager.  A true lager, this beer takes about five to six weeks to make from the day we mill the malt to finished, sparkling clear beer.  This all malt, Vienna-style lager begins with our own crystal clear water – run through our state of the art filtration system – which is treated to mimic the waters of Bavaria, before being mashed with the finest malts from one of the oldest German maltsters.  Using traditional techniques, we craft this lager’s wort in our four vessel brewhouse, transferring it to our fermenters to settle in for the long haul that all true lagers must undergo.  Our European lager strain ferments very cold and slow, leaving a crisp, clean, highly quaffable, light copper colored beer.  While most of our beers are unfiltered, we feel it is vitally important to filter this delicate beer, allowing the drinker to appreciate the clean, subtle complexities of a truly world-class lager.

Tasting Notes:

Clean malt aroma with fleeting hints of noble hops and light sulfur. Noble German hops used in the brewhouse, lend their telltale spicy, fruity and tangy notes in the middle flavor, which continues to more mellow malt with just enough bittnerness to keep it balanced.

Community  Witbier 

The mostly-extinct farmhouse breweries of Belgium were notorious for using whatever ingredients were available to them.  One of the treasures made by these breweries and nearly lost to history was spiced witbier (white beer).  Witbier defied an untimely fate, being revived by a man named Pierre Celis who worked in one of the last breweries in Belgium to commercially produce a version of this unique, spiced beer.  Celis eventually sold his own witbier brewery and moved to Austin, Texas to open another white beer brewery (Celis White) and the rest is history. 

In honor of the late and great Pierre Celis, we are proud to offer Community Wit as a warm weather libation, produced locally for our fellow Texans once again.  We brew it traditionally using unmalted wheat as our base and lightly spice the kettle with freshly ground sweet and bitter orange peel and coriander seed.  The hops are minimal, keeping the focus on the wheat, spices and the unique character contributed by authentic Belgian yeast strains, one of which originated from the same strain that Pierre brought across the Atlantic to America.

Tasting Notes:

The aroma from the thick, brilliant white head is bready and lively with notes of citrus and hints of spice.  The beautiful cloudy white appearance is mainly from the use of a large percentage of unmalted wheat, which contributes a considerable amount of protein, resulting in the permanent haze and creamy mouthfeel.  A high level of carbonation, relative low ABV, and refreshing character of the wheat make this a very drinkable summertime beer to beat the Texas heat!

Inspiration Ale 

The quest to create Community Beer Company led us to evaluate many locations around Dallas for nearly two years before selecting our home on Inspiration Drive, near downtown on Stemmons Freeway.  What a street name for our dream brewery to be built!! 

Without inspiration, we wouldn’t be here to enrich our local community with world-class craft beer.  In honor of all things inspirational, we offer this very special Belgian Style Dark Strong Ale.  The deep ruby hue of this ale comes from the use of several English and Belgian crystal malts as well as a touch of roasted malt.  The rich malt character is balanced by a high ABV, a blend of highly attenuative and expressive Belgian yeast strains, and just the right amount of hops.

Specifications:

Beer Style............................Belgian Strong Ale

Original Gravity..............................21.2 Plato

Alcohol By Volume..........................9.6%

Tasting Notes:

Aroma is of dark fruit, sweet malt, phenolic spiciness and a hint of noble hops.  Flavor is packed with juicy malt flavors that mingle with the fruitiness of the Belgian yeast and spicy character of the noble hops, all balanced by the alcoholic strength.

Trinity Tripel

Trinity Tripel is a hoppy Belgian-style Tripel, technically falling into the Belgian-Style Pale Strong Ale category.  The smooth body and flavor come from select German Pils malts used for the grist, lending a deep golden hue and clean finish.  The lack of complexity in the grist is necessary to highlight the stars of the show: three of our most beloved Belgian yeast strains and a new German hop variety called Mandarina Bavaria and also the famed Nelson Sauvin hops from New Zealand.  The symphony created by these key players is delightfully harmonious!  Fruity and spicy flavors from both yeast and hops unite, with neither dominating, creating a complex character that begs another taste.  A medium-high bitterness helps keep the beer dry and drinkable, but drink responsibly, as this beer is 9% ABV!

Community Pale Ale

American craft beer has become known worldwide for being innovative, unique and above all: hoppy! This deep golden, hop-forward American Style Strong Pale Ale brings loads of unique American hop character and as with most things American, some international influences.  We blend four different hops from three different countries to achieve the harmonious balance of citrus and tropical fruit.  The clean bitterness is balanced by the sparing use of crystal malts and a blend of base malts including a portion of Maris Otter English malt and American red wheat.  Our house ale yeast contributes mild fruity esters and leaves the fermented beer nearly crystal clear, only for us to come along and throw in a bunch of dry hops, leaving a permanent “hop haze.”  We think it’s a beautiful thing!

Texas Pils  (Seasonal - Summer)

Texas Pils is unlike any Pilsner you've ever tasted.  While this lager is based on traditional recipes, several modifications make this beer exceptional.  The grist is over 90% Hanka variety Pilsner malt from Bohemia: an heirloom barley variety related to the oldest cultivated barleys in Eastern Europe.  This barley has a rich, smooth taste that stands up to the noticeable hop character of this beer. To live up to its big name, we've made it slightly higher in ABV too (6%).  To match the increase in gravity, we've also added more hops, and not the usual suspects.  A new hop variety from Germany named Polaris lends a unique character to the beer reminiscent of spicy mint and alpine herbs. Traditionally brewed Pilsners have a medium body, and ours stays true to this, providing ample body to support the increased hop character and bitterness.  Perfect for relaxing on the patio or even for cooler Fall weather, this versatile lager broadens the horizon for traditionally brewed Pilsner lager.
