LOCAL BLONDE LAGER
Nicknamed "The Local" in our taproom, this crisp, refreshing, and easy to drink lager is brewed for all Texans to enjoy.
PACE BEND PALE ALE
A well-balanced Ale with a malt forward profile infused with a blend of Amarillo and Cascade hops. This beer is perfect for a day at the lake or a night under the stars.
PECOS AMBER LAGER
2018 Gold Medal Winner
Great American Beer Festival ®
American-Style Amber Lager
HOPPY DUCK IPA
Combining El Dorado, Citra, Falconers Flight, and Cascade Hops for a bright and delicious tasting IPA that pays tribute to our hometown Taylor Ducks. Boiled for 90 minutes, the malt forward foundation supports a flavorful citrus hop profile that is not too bitter and a clean West Coast Ale finish.
BILL PICKETT PORTER
A Texas style porter, rich and malty, yet extremely easy to drink. It blends chocolate and roasted barley with subtle notes of coffee malt, creating refreshing and delicious flavor profiles. This beer's dark body pays tribute to the fertile farmland of Taylor's Blacklands prairie.
KING GRACKLE STOUT
A favorite of our brew crew, this is a bold and flavorful Stout. Steeped in rich chocolate and coffee flavors and lots roasted speciality malts, raw cocoa nibs, and a hint of tropical hops.
KING GRACKLE CHOCOLATE STRAWBERRY STOUT
(Seasonal)Since Srsly Chocolate moved to Taylor, we’ve been eager to brew a rich chocolate collaboration. When neighbors flock together to create a delicious stout, the taste will fly high!

Founder & CEO
A fifth generation Texan, Ian feels strongly that Texans should join together and support local businesses. Ian co-founded Texas Beer Company in 2015 after working for non-profit groups and political campaigns for 15 years. As an extension of that community organizing background, Texas Beer Company is proud to be a people-powered brewery that launched with a Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign. He is married to Co-Founder Amy Everhart and together they have two boys, Reed and Hayes.
Founder & Brewmaster
JD likes to say that being a brewer is really like being a glorified janitor - he spends most of his time cleaning. When he isn't cleaning, he's brewing our delicious beer along with Assistant Brewer Max. Together, they brewed our 2018 Great American Beer Festival gold medal winning Pecos Amber. JD loves brewing beer, drinking beer, and is known to visit breweries wherever he goes. He's also married to our Operations Director, Megan.
Founder & Operations Director
Megan joined the Texas Beer Co team as a staff member in late 2018 and has been cranking out invoices, setting up events at the tap room, filing our reports and occasionally delivering beer ever since. When she isn't behind her computer, Megan can be found operating our packaging line or slinging beer in the tap room. She's also married to our Brewmaster JD.
Max joined the Texas Beer Co team in 2016 as a brewer after working for years at a homebrew supply shop. Max is the mastermind behind many of our favorite seasonals including the Hoppy Clouds IPA and Strawberry Chocolate King Grackle Stout. When he isn't brewing, Max is running the canning line, filling kegs and barrels and rocking a sweet mustache.
jack of all trades
The real question is - what doesn't Rob do? He operates the canning machine, brews, builds little tables to hold the case trays. Since Rob joined the team, our whole outlook on life has changed. We couldn't do it without him.
