Business Spotlight: Brutal Beerworks

Brutal Beerworks

The craft brew industry has become a booming business, with many brewpubs opening in Dallas and Fort Worth over the past few years. The Mid-Cities area hasn’t seen as much industry growth, but things are about to change with the opening of Brutal Beerworks, North Richland Hills’ first brewery. Situated a couple of blocks away from the Tarrant County College Northeast campus at 8447 Boulevard 26, the location will house a six-barrel brewhouse and taproom and offers a wide range of craft beers and cold brew coffee. The tap wall features up to 16 offerings, with new beer styles on a weekly basis, including sweet stouts, IPAs and Belgian-style brews as a part of the brewery’s regular rotation.

Brutal Beerworks is co-owned by local residents and craft beer enthusiasts, Eric Johnson, Jason Perez and Sallie McIntyre. Like many new breweries, they began home brewing as a hobby, but their interest quickly grew into a passion. Johnson’s brews have brought home several medals at regional competitions. Perez is recognized for his work as the former head brewer for Martin House Brewing in Fort Worth. The group prides themselves in being able to produce eccentric and ever changing beer styles.

The Brutal Beerworks team has dreamed of opening a brewpub for years, knowing from the beginning that it would be a brutal undertaking, hence their name. Although opening a new business is never easy, their willingness to work hard to reach their goal is driven by their love for craft beer and desire to share that love with the community. Their vision is to create a warm, friendly space to gather after work or get together for a pint with friends and family. Kids are welcome, with craft sodas served and an area stocked with games and coloring books.

Brutal Beerworks is scheduled to open on Father’s Day, June 16, 2019. For more information, visit
