About us

Beard Science is a Sour House, meaning we specialize in fermentation techniques and souring processes that you won’t find in your typical brewery. For kettle sours, we use Lactobacillus bacteria strains to create unique flavors in a very controlled environment. For our wild sours, we ferment the natural yeasts here in The Colony, Texas for some uncontrolled goodness in the beer. We also add special spices and some unexpected ingredients in the finishing process to give you something new with each brew. Some beers then age in wooden American Oak foeders or bottles you see in the brewery. Find our tap list here: What’s on Tap?

Beer not your thing? Not to worry, Beard Science has an extensive whiskey collection featuring those hard-to-find allocated Bourbons and hand-picked select barrels. We can also serve you a cocktail from our full bar or wine if that’s what tickles your fancy.

Contact us to host a private party in the Sour House or join us at one of our tasting events to learn more.

Beard Science Brews


Brewed with 100% organic Tulsi leaves and Wild Strawberry puree. Expect the Basil aroma in the front with a light strawberry coming through in the end.


Our Cucumber and Lemon is made from cucumber puree and real lemon juice. Cucumber is up front in aroma and flavor, while the lemon adds a nicely balanced freshness in the finish a little acid to the base sour beer. The combination of both lemon and cucumber creates a little vanilla phenolic note that makes this beer one of our most sought-after offerings.


A dry, earthy sour beer. The Blackcurrant adds to the overall sourness of the beers. Expect aroma and flavors of passion fruit and dark berry and a bit of raisin on the finish.


A nice balance between the sourness of the beer and the tart fruitiness of the Blood Orange makes this a good thirst quencher. A nice, dry mouthfeel will make you understand what fruit-alicious means.


If you like lemon and lime in your beer, this is it for you. The two citrus fruits add an extra layer of sourness. By using our base Berliner Weiss, it stays well-balanced for easy drinking.


Not sure about sour beers? Then this one's for you! The sweetness of the mango balances out the sourness adding a tasty, tropical and fruity flair. Imagine sitting in our yard, feeling like you're on a tropical island listen to Country music.


Our Berliner Weise and Peach puree create the perfect blend. The sourness of the beer and the fruit sweetness of the peach give it a pleasing velvety taste and flavor that are just perfect for a mid-summer drink. Refreshing and very easy to drink--it will not disappoint you!


A blend of sour Beer and pickle juice gives this beer a nice balance between sourness and all the spiciness you would expect from your favorite pickle.


Summer Break is almost over, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still sip on your favorite beach drink. We created our own version of a Sour Beer Pina Colada using Pineapple Juice and Coconut mixed with the Sour beer you love and crave. The fresh aroma of Pineapple and the creamy texture of the Coconut combined with the dry and tartness of the sour beer makes you want more--and more! Unlike its classic counterpart, the 3.2%alc/vol allow you to enjoy more than one, which is easy to do since the carbonation makes it extra refreshing. The Pineapple arrives in the front of the flavor with the coconut nicely balanced behind, and a dry finish from the sour beer make this less sweet and more complex than a regular Pina Colada.


Raspberry and Cherry reminds our Brew Boss of the scent that filled his home when mom Wehrmann was baking pies. This combination is fruity and earthy. It has a little bit more raspberry in the aroma with the dark cherry coming through in the taste and finishes with a nice sour note.


Woodruff is a German herb that grows deep in the woods and has green leaves with white flowers. It is known for its earthy, almost hay-like flavor and aroma with a light sweetness to it, to cut through any kind of sourness. The Ph is 3.5 and makes this a wonderful beverage on a nice day in the Yard.

MexTex Mexican Lager by Second Rodeo Brewing

As Mexican Lagers have a deep European history, it is no surprise that German hops and European lager yeast is used in most of them. Our Mexican Lager is made with Pale Malt and Rolled Corn as well we used hops from the Hersbrucker region in Germany and a Cech lager yeast. Expect a light beer with an ABV in the low 4% and slight flavors of flowers and dry grass as well a nice sweetness at the end from the rolled corn finished with some hop bitterness. Ask for a dash of salt and a slice of lime if you feel like it.

Meet our Brew Boss

The Beard Science Sour House is the delicious laboratory of our mad scientist and Brew Boss, Dennis Wehrmann. Dennis was born in Germany, into a family with five generations in the brewing business. He worked in breweries as a kid and went on to brewing school, apprenticeships, brewpub management, and eventually Dennis got a Master’s degree specializing in the brewing business. After moving to Dallas with his wife Joline, he opened his own microbrewery (Franconia), the first in the Dallas area. He operated Franconia for 12 years before passing on the reins and eventually joining the Truck Yard team. You can also taste his work at our upcoming Second Rodeo Brewery in The Stockyards in Fort Worth (scheduled to open March 2021).

Learn from all of Dennis’ experience in one of our tasting events – check out the Events page for more info.
