More than just an East Texas brewery, True Vine strives to create true, authentic community through integrity. From artistically driven beers that are growing in availability throughout the East Texas region to their OPEN TAPS events in their BackYard, their goal is to produce each with excellence. Every specialty handcrafted beer at True Vine represents depth of concept and flavor, and it is meant to be enjoyed around a table with old friends and new.
Founded in 2011 by friends with a passion for life, quality crafted beer and creative expression, True Vine is a family-based microbrewery. With over 12 years of combined brewing experience and countless years of entrepreneurism, the True Vine team has been on a relentless mission to hone their craft and help build the craft beer scene in East Texas. They began in a garage brewing 10-gallon batches, transitioned to a 1,400-square-foot space and started brewing 50-gallon batches of beer. The first official True Vine kegs were sold in January of 2014.
Just West of downtown in Tyler, their tiny beer factory has been in production mode since the fall of 2013. They began with a 1.5-barrel system and 3-barrel fermenters, and they cranked out many small batches of True Vine beer.
In the summer of 2015, they were able to finish a 10-barrel brewhouse expansion. New brewhouse, tanks, cold room and the works are now fully functional and capable of brewing 1,200 percent more than before.
In the summer of 2016, they began canning some of their brews and started distribution throughout the East Texas region. Their future plans include a redesigned BackYard space at the brewery.
