Cheers to a bigger and better brewery for TUPPS

On Friday, January 7, after a year’s delay, TUPPS Brewery inaugurated its new facility. The brewery expansion and relocation will be just one mile from their current brewery at 402 E. Louisiana St. in McKinney. The move will house a new 25,000 square foot production facility, slated to open in October.

TUPPS, which is family owned and operated, operates just outside of downtown McKinney on the historic Cotton Mill property and has been open since 2015. They produce both hard ales and seltzers and distribute to States of Texas and Oklahoma.

“Our new facility gives us the capacity to manufacture four times our current production, allowing TUPPS to expand distribution in Houston and deepen the markets we currently serve,” said TUPPS owner and founder Keith Lewis.

The entire site will consist of a 10,000 square foot bar and an 8,000 square foot covered patio. Additionally, there will be two beer gardens with an outdoor stage, an on-site café-bar and a playground for children and youngsters.

“Everyone knows the world has been turned upside down due to COVID, but thanks to the support of the city and the persistence of our general contractor, SpawGlass, we are in a great position to build a very unique site that will drive economic growth. on the east side of McKinney,” Lewis said.

The new bar should be completed by December. In the meantime, the current TUPPS location is open five days a week, serving fresh flagship beers like the Juice Pack Double Dry Hopped Lager and the latest variations of their Full-Grown Man series.

They also serve soft drinks and hard seltzers and always have a stacked schedule of activities ranging from weekly trivia and live music to special events like yoga and local vendor markets. You can also grab a bite to eat at Barley by Rye, an on-site “gastrovan” serving fine bar fare with locally sourced ingredients.
