Revolver Brewing puts craft beer on tap at new Arlington recreation hub
Like Guy Fieri isn't enough, there's another big-deal concept debuting at Texas Live: Revolver Brewing, the Granbury craft beer brewer, will open a second working brewery at the entertainment district in Arlington. Revolver will join the newly announced Guy Fieri restaurant, along with the three performing venues: Rangers Republic, Live Arena, and Arlington Backyard.
Revolver Brewing is known for its fresh perspective in the world of craft beer. Its Blood & Honey is one of the most popular local craft beers. In August, the brewery entered into an agreement with Tenth and Blake Beer Company, Miller Coors' craft and import division, which acquired a majority interest.
Revolver was founded in 2012 by Rhett Keisler and his father, Ron, along with former Samuel Adams brewer Grant Wood. Their lineup includes year-round releases such as Blood & Honey, along with seasonal and limited-release beers. It takes an inventive approach, such as the recent Yam Dankee, a sweet-potato IPA.
Texas Live is a mixed-use development that will be situated between the Rangers' current home, Globe Life Park, and AT&T Stadium, home of the Dallas Cowboys. It's being built south of Randol Mill Road, between Legends Way and Nolan Ryan Expressway, adjacent to the location for the Rangers' planned new ballpark.
The dining and entertainment portion will open in the spring of 2018, and the hotel/convention facility will open in the fall of 2018.
Part of the plan for Revolver is that it will brew one-of-a-kind specialty beers specifically for Texas Live.
Co-founder Rhett Keisler says that music is in their DNA. "Our brand is inspired by great ingredients, as well as great music, and is a perfect fit for Texas Live," he says.
