Integrity. Community. Love. Those ingredients mixed with some craft beer are what make True Vine Brewing Company stand out.
Ryan and Traci Dixon began brewing craft beer years ago, and decided to invite the community to sip along through True Vine Brewing Company in Tyler.
“Our favorite way to enjoy a beer is around a table with old friends and new, so when opening an East Texas brewery our goal was to be a place where the whole family can hang out (yes, that includes the dog).”
In 2014, Ryan and Traci opened a warehouse west of Downtown Tyler where they hosted ‘open taps’ once a month. This gave the public a chance to enjoy both the craft beer and the craft community at True Vine. In March 2018, they moved into their current location on Earl Campbell Parkway which includes both indoor and outdoor space.
We sat down with the couple to dig into what makes their “home away from home” so special. What it boils down to: building a community around craft beer. This family-friendly brewery is filled with music, laughter, and of course some good beer.
Now, True Vine offers over a dozen beers which include both their staples and their seasonal treats.
Here are the descriptions of their 4 core beers:
Daddy’s Juice Box: Juicy, fruity, and easy-drinking. This crowd-pleasing double IPA is low on bitterness and high on tropical fruit aroma and flavor.
Mermaids and Unicorns: Light and bready. This smooth, clean finishing blonde is great for the Texas heat.
Rose City: Floral, hoppy, and citrusy. This IPA is double dry-hopped with centennial, cascade, and citra hops, giving it a fresh nose and crisp flavor.
Smith County: Light, clean, crisp. A light lager brewed with pilsner malt and German hops. Refreshing and flavorful.
True Vine Brewing Company is located at 2453 Earl Campbell Parkway in Tyler.
