Unlawful Assembly Brewing Company
Unlawful Assembly was founded under the premise that when good folks get together, great beer happens. The Unlawful Assembly Brewing Company has two locations. One is at the Legacy Food Hall in Plano, where you can enjoy their fantastic beers while tasting something new with each sip. Their cans are some of the coolest-looking cans – many of which are available in grocers and restaurants around the DFW area!
An easy drive west on Highway 380, Denton has great art, music and entertainment options – including some fun breweries!
Denton County Brewing Company
Envisioning their brewery as “Denton’s second living room,” DCBC is cozy, fun brewpub vibes taken up a notch. Guests hang out on their couches with other friends or fun-loving family members while enjoying delicious craft beers that are born & brewed right here in town.
These days they call it an ‘adult playground’ full of board games, trivia nights, and tasty appetizers – all under one roof (so no need to wander).

Barley & Board
Barley & Board is a Denton institution that has been delighting gastronomes since it opened its doors. B&B is located in the historic Lacy Hotel, built in 1858. Before opening to the public, the taproom designers hollowed out as much space of the old hotel, invited artists, and restored the building with a modern art facelift – without completely discarding the building’s history.
It’s no wonder that Barley and Board has garnered rave reviews from Zagat and other foodie authorities.
