Texas Beer Company

In early 2016, Texas Beer Company opened a brewery and tap house in the McCrory-Timmerman building in downtown Taylor, TX. This beautiful, historic red-brick building on Main Street is the perfect intersection of Texas’ proud agricultural history and an exciting craft beer future. Taylor has some of the best farm land in Texas, and they believe local grain from Taylor’s Blackland Prairie will help produce some of the best beer in Texas. Every week they host local musicians and other fun community events.



Taylor is no stranger to life on the big screen. Featured in movies such as Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2, Transformers: Age of Extinction, and Friday Night Lights, there is a strong appreciation for cinema in our town. Sit back, relax and enjoy a film with us.
