Crafting community one beer at a time: Inside Brew Drinkery


When you step into Brew Drinkery in downtown Granbury, the first thing that hits you isn't just the enticing aroma of hops and malts but also the warm and inviting atmosphere. It's a place where bar stools aren't just seats — they're an invitation into a community. Owned by Christian Piatt, this local gem serves not only an impressive range of 40+ craft beers on tap but also a slice of that cherished "everyone knows your name" sentiment.

A symphony of flavors

Brew Drinkery takes its craft beers seriously, offering a rotating selection that could leave any beer aficionado awestruck. Among the crowd favorites on the tap wall are the "Dizzy Blonde," "Jitterbug" and "Bugsy Lager," all three brewed locally right here in Granbury by Brew Aleworks, Brew Drinkery's sister business. In fact, six of the ten most popular beers on the tap wall are Brew Aleworks products, along with another local brew, "Blood & Honey," brewed by Revolver Brewing. The other Aleworks beers are the "Speakeasy Stout," the "33 Hef," and the "Charleston Amber."

More than just a bar

But what sets Brew Drinkery apart from any other pub is the sense of community that fills the air as much as the aroma of beer. The venue hosts weekly events such as live music, trivia and comedy nights, converting patrons into friends and friends into family.

"Coming here is like stepping into a 'local Cheers,' where the staff not only knows your preferred brew but also how your day has been," said Jada Masten, one of Brew's many regulars. "It's about more than just beer — it's about building lasting connections."

Another Brew regular, Marta Clinkscales, says, "Brew Drinkery is one of those places where you always feel welcome. Our family frequents Brew because there is something for everyone. From great food, specialty coffee and 40 rotating craft beer taps, it is truly a one-of-a-kind gem for Granbury."

Christian Piatt: The man behind the tap

For Piatt, Brew Drinkery isn't just a business; it's a labor of love. The curated list of craft beers is a testament to his passion for quality and commitment to providing Granbury with an experience that's both unique and comforting.

"In a world where big brands dominate, we want to give people the opportunity to taste something different, something carefully crafted and local," said Piatt.

Brew Drinkery offers the perfect blend of quality craft beers and a community atmosphere that feels just like home. Whether you're a seasoned craft beer connoisseur or someone who's looking to try something new, Brew Drinkery is the place where every pour is a toast to friendship, community and the simple joys of life.
