Maple Branch Craft Brewery was founded in celebration of Fort Worth's distinct entrepreneurial spirit. We've got a thirst for freedom and taking the path less traveled. For us, that means providing a space for trailblazers, free-thinkers, visionaries, friends and newcomers to unwind while igniting your taste buds. 

Find magic in every sip. Voyage further than any craft beer-enthusiast has gone before. Crack open a cold one and savor the journey.

We met back in 2014 while attending TCU. Fast forward six years, we're now happily married and have four kids (two cats and two dogs, that is). We're strong believers in the saying "I wasn't born in Texas, but I got here as fast as I could" - the only edit we would make is to add Fort Worth specifically. Our funky community means a lot to us, and we're proud to call ourselves Fort Worth locals.

Maple Branch began as a college pipe dream, and we're slowly seeing it become tangible, whether that's with the creation of our tap handles, breaking ground in the taproom, or the hundreds of batches we've brewed. As young entrepreneurs it hasn't always been easy, but for us taking the path less traveled has always been the only route.
