Tucked away far north in the beautiful Castle Hills division of Lewisville sits a new shopping center that blends in with the neighborhood quite well.

On December 21, 2013, Cobra Brewing Company celebrated their grand opening. I was fortunate to get there early enough and was able to sample all the beers offered before the kegs ran dry. As I have alluded to in the past, the best way to experience a beer is from the brewery itself with a tour. This was definitely no exception to my belief.
The day started with a pleasant cloudy and slightly misting chilly morning. The brewery is set in Lewisville not very far from I35E or Business 121. Parking could have potential problem due to the geographical location but if you arrive early enough, it should be negligible. Prepay and cash on site were allowed and the cost of ten dollars was pretty standard. The glass is the typical pint with the brewery logo, a nice addition for you beer glass collectors out there. The brewery itself is large, impeccably clean and offers two pool tables and picnic tables.
Cobra’s Facebook page mentions some dart boards to be added soon. The back lot offered two tents and radiant heaters so the crowd was not overly powering. The serving area was very friendly and inviting. A serving area was very friendly and inviting. The band area was more than adequate for the performers of the day. Too loud with the music playing? The back lot allowed for ambient music and low enough volume so shouting was not necessary for casual talking. Continue reading
