A DFW Metroplex institution, Humperdink’s Restaurant and Brewery began brewing their own craft beer back in 1995 before we knew what craft beer was. You could say they are innovative geniuses! Humperdink’s breweries are Gold Medal Award Winners, and all beers are brewed on premise. Their signature handcrafted ales and lagers are brewed using the finest barley, hops, and yeast. The brewery also won the Gold in Light Lager and the Bronze in Dark Lager at the Best Little Brewfest in Texas in 2015, and in 2001 it won the Brewpub of the Year and Large Brewmaster of the Year, awarded by the Great American Beer Festival.
