As you know, The Nodding Donkey loves celebrating our Texas heritage and great Texas craft beer. We have many local, Dallas-Fort Worth area craft beers available on tap, including a couple from Revolver Brewing Company.
Travel just about 30 minutes southwest of Fort Worth and you’ll find the picturesque little town of Granbury, Texas. Granbury is home to many shops, wineries, and small town Texas fun, but our favorite stop is the Revolver Brewing Company.
The Revolver Brewing was founded in 2012 by a father/son duo, Ron & Rhett Keisler. In a few short years, folks in North Texas and beyond have taken notice of Revolver because they make delicious craft beer. What makes their beer special? We all know the flavors of the beer start with the water, and we love that Revolver uses it’s own well water from the Trinity Aquifer. It’s the minerals in the water – along with the highest quality ingredients – that give Revover it’s distinctive taste. And their brewery doesn’t use run-of-the-mill equipment either. Revolver’s equipment was all custom produced in the U.S. by a master craftsman. It’s the little things that make this beer stand out!
The Nodding Donkey’s Top Picks
At this point I’m sure you’re wondering, “Okay, so what about the beer?!”
The Nodding Donkey has two of our favorite Revolver Brewing Company craft beers on tap right now:
Revolver Blood & Honey: It’s the beer that put them on the map, and if you haven’t tried it yet, get over to The Nodding Donkey and give it a try! It’s an American Wheat Ale that’s smooth and perfectly crafted with gourmet ingredients including Texas honey, Blood Orange zest, and spices. It goes great with appetizers, burgers, Tex-Mex – just about anything you want to pair it with!
Revolver High Brass: The drinkability is strong with this one. This American Blonde Ale goes down ultra smooth. We love that it’s got a mild pilsner malt that’s flavorful without being overbearing. Another unique thing about this beer? It uses Saphir hops imported from Germany.
