I spent the Saturday of Memorial Day weekend with my family visiting one of the best attractions of McKinney, Texas... Tupps Brewery!
Tupps is a newer brewery that opened up in 2015 located right close to McKinney's historic downtown square and is a great way to spend a day. You can tour the square with its many shops and restaurants and then head over to Tupps for a nice cold beer!
After touring the downtown, we headed over to Tupps which is right behind the old Cotton Mill off of Highway 5. Its in a warehouse with the only marker to let you know that it's a bar and brewery is a large, purely Texas, old rusty car out front. When you walk inside the décor is warehouse rustic and has the rural Texas feel that can be hard to find in the Dallas Metropolitan area.
The outdoor seating along with jumbo Jenga and corn hole games are the perfect way to relax on a Saturday afternoon. The inside live country music and lunch truck doesn't hurt either..
While there I went for the Texas Black Ale and the Texas Shade wheat. Both were absolutely delicious and refreshing. The wheat was really unfiltered (cloudy) which you can see in the photo below (the top layer for the black and tan) and in the first photo above.
A week later, I bought some of their beer to bring home to try and make a perfect black and tan. Delicious!!
Every Saturday Tupp's has a Taste, Tour, & Hang Event where there is live music from 1-4pm, tours at 12:30 and 4pm, and, best of all, $5 beer! Make sure you check them out if you are ever in the North Dallas area. It is well worth the trip!
