It is time to celebrate Lakewood Brewing Company’s expansion!

The expansion will immediately double Lakewood’s production capacity and represents the next big step in the continuing growth of the local brewery. The new, state-of-the-art expansion adjoins Lakewood’s previously existing facility at 2302 Executive Drive.

“Everything we’ve worked for since we sold our first keg in 2012 has been leading to this moment,” said Wim Bens, founder of Lakewood Brewing Company. “It could not have happened without the continued support of the DFW beer fans, customers and our families and staff. Our goal has always been to provide DFW with the highest quality beers for any occasion, and this expansion allows us to keep that promise.“

The brewery’s expansion includes 8,000 sq. feet of new production space, a larger 2,000 sq foot Taproom and a new canning line. The brewery will begin canning select beers, including Lakewood Lager, Rock Ryder and a new session IPA, Hopochondria starting in April.   Continue reading

Rahr and Lakewood Breweries Kicked It Up At Luck Last Night For A Little Beer Week Fun

DSC05453by Steven Doyle

As NTX Beer week continues, last night was definitely a gem in its hat as two beloved breweries came together and made magic happen along with the boys at LUCK in Trinity Groves.

The dinner was nothing short of breath taking, as LUCK understands beer and pairings extremely well. Each course met with a different beer, culminating to a collaborative brew of both Rahr and Lakewoods making.  The meeting of beer minds is nothing particularly new to this industry, but it is always a little special when two local breweries, this time one from Dallas the other Fort Worth, come together and make a special kind of love. This particular brew is a Belgian-style dubbel. Balanced, smooth and malty sweet with a hint of spice from the Belgian yeast.   Continue reading
