Beer and baseball are unabashed partners, and in a couple years when the Texas Rangers open their new $250 million entertainment and dining complex, fans will be able to get craft beer brewed onsite.
Granbury-based Revolver Brewing will open a second facility at Texas Live!, the baseball team's forthcoming entertainment district across the street from the ballpark, according to an announcement Wednesday.
While we don't know the size of the brewery, a press release promises it will brew flagship brands like the Blood and Honey wheat ale, which was lauded by Samuel Adams' creator as "damn good," alongside other recipes specially for Texas Live! crowds.
"The Revolver Brewing family is proud to be a part of such an amazing entertainment project," said Rhett Keisler, co-founder of Revolver, in a statement. "Our brand is inspired by great ingredients, as well as great music, and is a perfect fit for Texas Live!. We are thrilled to bring Revolver Brewing to Texas Live! and we look forward to crafting unique beers for the project."
Revolver joins other high-profile entertainment concepts, including a 35,000-square-foot restaurant and venue called Live! Arena, an almost equally as large sports bar called Rangers Republic, an outdoor pavilion called the Arlington Backyard and a proprietary restaurant from TV personality Guy Fieri.
Texas Live! was slated to begin construction the last week of October, according to Dallas Morning News reporter Jeff Mosier. The project, which encompasses 200,000-square-feet of real estate adjacent to where the new stadium may be built, is expected to open in spring 2018.
The Texas Live! announcement comes months after Revolver Brewing inked a deal with beverage giant MillerCoors, which now owns a majority stake in the local brewer. Keisler said the partnership would allow Revolver to expand its footprint statewide, but the move with the Texas Rangers undoubtedly helps it gain a stronger local foothold, too.
Revolver Brewing is one of D-FW's largest breweries, producing 21,960 barrels of beer in 2015, according to the Brewers Association. Requests for comment from MillerCoors about the Texas Live! project were not immediately answered.
