YOu've been served.
At Legal Draft, we believe it starts with the beer. It should be world-class, full of flavor, and consistently satisfying. We started with five core beers: Blonde Lager, Amber Lager, India Pale Ale, Hefeweizen and Stout. Our beer is brewed with the best ingredients and state-of-the-art equipment by a German Master Brewer. We'd love to serve you a pint in our taproom, in a local pub, or in a six-pack from a store near you.
Legal Blonde Lager
4.8% ABV | 18 IBU
A Munich Lager made with fine malt and superior hops, fermented cold and lagered for a clear, straw-colored body and smooth, refreshing drinkability.
Presumed innocent IPA
7.2% ABV | 68 IBU
An approachable American IPA, with a slight haze to its dark gold body and a bright citrus aroma from Cascade hops.
Smash & Grab IPA
6.1% ABV | 70 IBU
This single malt and single hop IPA presents a bright citrus nose from Citra hops, followed by a strong backbone of pale ale on Two Row malt. There is enough bitterness to know you're drinking an IPA, but the malt balance lends a nice drinkability.
Free & Clear
gluten removed Lager
A traditionally brewed Helles Lager with gluten removed in the brewing process. Crisp and clean, its light body and easy drinkability make it a refreshing treat for today's active beer afficionado.
Classic Bavarian style Oktoberfest, with a hint of orange in its clear body, a slight toast of malt, and a crisp finish that invites another sip.
Annual Fall Seasonal Release
Black Letter Law Pilsner
There’s no disputing this traditional Schwarzbier. With a dark body and creamy brown head, it delivers surprisingly light and smooth drinkability in every glass. It’s the answer you’re looking for!
Seasonal Release January 2018.
6.2% | 56 IBU
Another definition: to question the truthfulness of a testifying witness. When Texas peaches meet premium malt and hops in great craft IPA, it’s totally credible.
Seasonal Release May 2018
Accused Amber Lager
5.5% ABV | 20 IBU
An Amber Vienna Lager with toasted, malty flavor and a color reminiscent of a Texas sunset, it’s the perfect thirst quencher for those who prefer a bit of a bolder lager.

nowhere but texas
This American Premium Lager is straw gold and made for easy drinking. It’s perfect for the lake, a ballgame or a Texas Country concert.
Legal Holiday Ale
6.5% ABV | 20 IBU
Old World meets New World in this Christmas beer. We use rye malt, blood orange peel, and spices for a warming, satisfying feel and a smooth finish.
Annual Winter Seasonal Release
A classic Doppelbock, brewed with 100% Munich Malt for a dark copper color and a caramel note on the palate. We add Mosaic hops, then lager cold for weeks to bring it to full maturity. Smooth and refreshing, it's the perfect lager to welcome Spring. Prosit!
Seasonal Release March 2018
Special taproom only release
Special, limited supply German Sauerbier. Tangy and bright, with a hint of lemon drop giving way to tart cherry on the nose, and awash in citrus, cherry, and sour plum notes on the palate. Only available while supplies last. This one won’t do you wrong!
Rye Fought the Law
Special taproom only release
4.5% ABV | 20 IBU
A classic Roggenbier with a hazy body and a light orange hue. Subtly sweet notes on the nose, with a delightful tanginess and soft, round mouthfeel. Prosit!!
7.2% ABV | 60 IBU
A hazy, New England IPA. Specialty malts mashed in to exacting standards, unique yeast strains, and plenty of fine hops make this beer lush and full in the mouth, with intense and juicy hop aromas and flavors. It takes a little more time to make a beer with so much hops that lacks sharp bitterness, but the end result is well worth it. Bring this beer before me!
We aged our Legal Holiday ale on bourbon barrels from Heaven Hill for four months. Sweet caramel and vanilla notes hop on board with the spices brewed into this winter warmer to make a rich and complex treat. At 5.7% alcohol, it still has a nice drinkability for the beautiful Spring weather.
Special release – Staff Series, Kelley
5.6% ABV | 30 IBU
It’s a surprising and complex expression of a classic porter, with rye malt adding a tangy edge to the usual dark smoothness of the style. It’s easy-drinking, layered, and satisfying at the same time.
Special release – Staff Series, Aaron
6.1% ABV | 68 IBU
SMaSH & GRaB IPA gets an extra dry-hop with Mosaic hops, adding layers of tropical fruit and floral tones.
High court imperial amber
December 2017 – Limited release
A rich, malty, Imperial Amber Lager, with only a hint of hops. It's lagered cold for two months to achieve a smooth, satisfying feel and finish.
September 2017 – Seasonal Release
You can almost feel the nip in the air with this autumn lager. Cinnamon and nutmeg give a spicy nose to a malty, round mouthfeel. Remember, everybody needs a Fall Guy!
in the Chambers:
Exhibit C IPA
Winter 2017 – Limited Release.
10% ABV | 100 IBU
Exhibit C is a nod to our one hundredth brew. We used roughly 3 times the malt of our Presumed Innocent IPA, and dry hopped the beer to add as much aroma as we could squeeze out of the Centennial hops. The result is exquisitely rich, but more balanced and much less bitter than most will expect.
October 2017 – Limited release
7.7% ABV | 25 IBU
Not quite stout, not really porter, certainly not another brown ale. What to call it? Maybe it’s best we put it in Witness Protection for its own good. Smooth mouthfeel and dark roasted malts add to a nose of mocha. The finish is mild, with just a hint of sweetness. All good, but with Witness Protection, there’s so much more to the story.
Barrel Aged witness protection
October 2017 – Limited release
7.0% ABV | 25 IBU
What do you do with your most important person in Witness Protection? You keep them in hiding, of course. We’ve stored a nice supply of ours in bourbon barrels from Heaven Hill and Elijah Craig for four months before release. The bourbon nose is prominent but not overpowering, complementing the coffee and vanilla notes. The mouthfeel is soft and rounded, with toasted, earthy flavors and an easy finish. Still, we can’t say who it really is.
October 2017 – Limited release for NTXBW
7.65% ABV | 75 IBU
Lawful Good shows a hazy golden amber body. On the nose, grapefruit and stone fruit dominate, with subtle presence of grass and earth. There’s a rounded mouthfeel, with good malt structure behind a hop bite that yields quickly to citrus and herbal notes. The finish is clean and without tannins.
September 2017 – Craft Beer of the State Fair
Strawberry Wheatness is a wheat ale made with strawberry puree. The nose is bright and intense strawberry, while the fruit flavor is more muted in the mouth. The bready taste from the wheat malt and a touch of vanilla make the whole experience similar to having a waffle with strawberry and cream on top.
August 2017 – Limited release
8.65% ABV | 30 IBU
A traditional Belgian Tripel Ale, with low hop aroma and medium bitterness. Made from Belgian Pilsner malt and Columbus and Cascade hops, it has a low malt sweetness and round mouthfeel. Aromas range from mild spice to orange and banana.
Roasted Pumpkin Spice Lager
September 2016 – Seasonal release
The official craft beer for the 2016 Texas State Fair.
At our taproom you will also find Moot Beer (non-alcoholic root beer) and an occasional coffee on tap.
