We visited the Revolver Brewery in Granbury with our grown children and spouses and truly had a great afternoon. It was a little hot, so I can only imagine this would be a phenomenal venue in the late fall, early spring as it is all outdoors, but for $10, you get 4 glasses of their micro-brewed beers and they are all very well brewed. There is also bbq to wash down the beer! Live music, outdoors, with many "tailgate" games such as washers and horseshoes available at no charge.
Get away from the noisy city and spend your Saturday lunch at Revolver Brewery. For a minimal fee you get to learn about how they make beer, you receive a commemorative glass and you get to sample their pretty delicious beers. And believe me, when they say sample, they don't mean you get a small bit of beer, you get to try more than enough. They have live music playing, chairs set outside (or bring your own), they have pretty decent Texas bbq food available (they do not cater to vegetarians or the like) and they have games set out for your family like giant Jenga. It is such a relaxing and entertaining way to spend a Saturday early afternoon with your family I highly suggest anybody visit at least once. Oh and to top it off, the staff are all friendly, helpful and willing to answer any questions you have about their beer or the beer making process.
Revolver brews great beer but they do an even better job of hosting a tour/tasting. We've been to other breweries that you can tell aren't completely set up for hosting a large number of people. For 10$ you get a cool revolver pint glass and 4 revolver brews. There is lots of space, bring your lawn chairs. Heck, bring your kids, lots of folks do and we did once. Of course it's more fun if you don't have them. The brewery is a little out of the way, so make sure you have a sober driver.
"Sometimes, the stars align." Smiled Rhett Keisler, Revolver Brewing co-founder as he described their now famous Blood & Honey."After brewing for a few months our bee-farmer neighbor asked us if we'd like to try his local honey." Rhett recalls. And that gave birth to Blood and Honey light ale with 7% ABV. (See below)For Rhett and his skeptical partner and father, Ron, the local honey and crystal-clear water from the famous Trinity Aquifer, mixed with local, seasonal ingredients has created both a local hot-spot and craft emporium.Revolver Brewing, located thirty-five minutes southwest of Fort Worth in Granbury, TX has already achieved their five year plan in just 24-months.By the looks of it last Saturday, the energy and fun is contagious.

Who doesnt love day drinking? Live music, family friendly, great beer, firepits, friendly staff, games, catered local bbq, so many good things going on here for ten bucks.
It was raining and cold, but once we got inside and some amazing beer in our bellies we forgot how terrible we looked and enjoyed ourselves! Very friendly staff! The band was great. We didn't try the food, but it looked good as far as we could tell!
My wife, son and daughter-in-law visited there one Saturday afternoon to see what was going on there。 We had a great time。。。sitting in the sunshine, drinking a few specialty beers they brew there and listening to a really good bluegrass band。 The beer samples are generous and very good (especially their Blood Orange)。 You also get an attractive logo beer glass。。。all for a few dollars。 If you want to relax and kick back for a few hours on a Saturday afternoon, it's the best deal in town。 We are celebrating our 50th anniversary over the 4th of July holiday and the Revolver Brewery is at the top of our recommendation list for our out of towners。
The brewery on Saturday allows sampling their beers along with a band outside, snack food. Fee is charged but well worth it. Call ahead as it can get crowded
We first met the folks from Revolver at the Flying Saucer on Sundance Square。 They had just started up but had some great beer and an "I'm going to steal that logo sign"! I didn't steal the sign, but when it came up missing。。。。。 Some time later we ventured down to Granbury to take the brewery tour。 Since then we've been out of a Saturday many times and always had a great time。 We've gone to some launches at various venues in Fort Worth and again, always a great time。Rhett Keisler and his dad, Mr。 Keisler, are wonderful hosts。 The brewmaster, Grant is a font of brewing information and a heck of nice guy。 All of the staff and volunteers are just awesome。We've watched the facility grow and enjoyed every step of the way。 This is a family friendly venue with activities for the kids, fire pits, picnic style seating, a covered pavilion and a shady area on the patio。 We've been there in the sweltering heat of summer and the freezing storms of winter。 We've seen Santa, great bands, vintage car shows and had some good food along with our superlative beers。You really can't beat the deal, for $10 you get a brewery glass to keep and 4 half pours or 2 full pours of their beer。 I'm fond of the Mother's Little Fracker and Fracker Barrel One, but then I like my brew dark and mysterious。 My fiancé enjoys all of the beers, but is partial to the Revolver Bock and Blood and Honey。We love the Revolver folks so much, we have our wedding after party scheduled here! Oh, the formal reception will be at the Church Fellowship hall。 The PARTY will be at Revolver!Come out and spend a Saturday afternoon。 It's ok if you skip the weekend we go out though ;) Can't make it, you can get the beer in town, on draft or in a bottle, like we do when we can't spare the full afternoon。 Good time, Guaranteed!
They have a huge outdoor area with tons of picnic style seating and live music. The beer was great. Recommend the Sidewinder for those that like the lighter stuff (my wife who doesn't love the dark stuff really liked it). The Bock is wanna my favorites too.Great little gift shop. The only very small change I could see is the need for better music. Such a great atmosphere can really excel with some more upbeat music - even karaoke. Good environment for kids too. Get there at 12 and stay the whole time - you won't be disappointed. Unless it's raining - that would suck for you.
