Legal Draft Beer Co
You’ve been served! Arlington, Texas’ highly successful Legal Draft Beer Company offers a range of world-class craft beers with a unique lawyer-inspired theme.
Founded by a trial lawyer and a medical logistics professional in 2015, Legal Draft Beer Company is one of Arlington, Texas’ greatest craft beer success stories. About twenty years ago, Greg McCarthy (the lawyer) and Curt Taylor (the logistics guy) were together with friends, enjoying cold beers and discussing family, business and life in general when Curt announced they should all open a brewpub together in their hometown of Arlington. Everyone agreed, then finished their beers and returned to making a living and raising their families.
In 2015, the friends were together again and this time Greg told everyone he had finally decided to open a craft brewery to help Arlington take part in the craft beer revolution. Curt couldn’t resist and of course jumped on board. Today, just six years after establishing Legal Draft Beer Company, and five years after opening their taproom doors, Legal Draft has become an anchor point in downtown Arlington with its core range of world-class, flavorful, and consistently satisfying brews. It is also among the top ten craft beer sellers in North Texas.
Greg and Curt hired German-born artisan Brewmaster Henryk Orlik to craft their Legal Draft beers. His classic German training and more than 40 years of brewing experience has resulted in a phenomenal range of craft beers - the names of which are clearly influenced by Greg’s background as a lawyer. Some of the favorites include Legal Blonde Lager, Hung Jury Hefeweizen, Presumed Innocent IPA, Chief Justice Stout, Hazeas Corpus Hazy IPA, Rye Brought the Law, and Accused Amber Ale, among others. They even offer a non-alcoholic option named Moot Beer.
The brewery itself, with the slogan “You’ve been served,” is filled with lawyer-themed decor with even gavels for tap handles in the impressive 2,500 square foot space. Adjacent to the taproom is an open-air, shaded beer garden that welcomes friends, family, neighbors, and tourists to the lively and welcoming atmosphere that Legal Draft Beer Company offers.
It’s no wonder that Legal Draft has seen overwhelming success since opening its doors, and we are proud to share two of their offerings with our Craft Beer Club members. Enjoy!
