Have you ever had
a Labor of Love?
Something you enjoyed so much that you did it just for the sport of it? The camaraderie? That feeling of accomplishment when the day is done? We sure have.
HELL, that's why we started our brewery in the first place. Our labor of love was homebrewing. We all came from different corners, from different backgrounds, to blend our tastes and passion for good beer into a singular obsession - Deep Ellum Brewing Company is our Labor of Love.
Through this journey we've been fortunate enough to meet many who share a similar passion. While some have and will go on to open their own breweries, most will continue their pursuit of the craft for the joy of the chase. You see, it's an art that cannot be mastered. No matter how may times it's repeated, how many times spent scrubbing, sanitizing, trialing various grain bills, different hop combinations, and learning the nuances of yeast, there is always more to know — a higher plane to seek, a never ending quest for the perfect brew.

Every year we team up with Texas and surrounding state homebrew clubs and invite over 70 homebrewers to join us the Sunday before Labor Day for a night not to forget in the homebrew revolution. We invite you to join us in sampling some homebrews like you've never tasted before, but you must become a member of our homebrew club first. Your $30 annual membership fee grants you access to the festival and unlimited samples.
