Shannon Brewing Company – Keller, Texas
Shannon Brewing Company produces an award-winning portfolio of all-natural beer. The brewery crafts all of its beer the way it was done centuries ago — with FIRE using pure Texas spring water, whole grain, whole flower hops, and a whole lotta love.
Taproom & Beer Garden
We are very happy to announce that “normal” taproom hours have resumed. You will notice several improvements to the SBC taproom, including some redecorating and some great new beers.
Enjoy a pint of the most natural and freshest beer you can find in the SBC taproom or under the canopy of the outdoor beer garden. We always have something special on tap at the brewery. The beer list changes often.

Well-behaved kids and dogs are always welcome at Shannon Brewing Company. Please keep dogs on a leash and keep an eye on your kids. No dogs are allowed in the production area, except for Arlo the Brewery Dog (German Sheppard mix), who is often found wandering around off-leash.

Brew with Purpose
Our award-winning beer is fire-brewed with the best stuff on earth: pure Texas spring water, whole grain, whole flower hops, and a whole lotta love! Paramount to our all-natural commitment is our multi-step fire-brewed process.
Brewing with fire is certainly not new…in fact, it’s so old most brewers have moved away from it because fire is more difficult to control than other heating sources. We brew all our beer using an old-world fired process in both the mash tun and kettle.
Heating our mash (grain + water) and wort (the sweet liquid extracted from the grain) with fire, enables the brewery to delicately caramelize the sugars in the wort, producing superior malty flavors. We tried recreating our recipes on a steam brewhouse but it didn’t even come close to producing the same flavors.
The inspiration for the brewery’s unique process and brewhouse came from an old brewhouse in Ireland, similar to the one pictured on the right (circa 1860). Shannon Carter was inspired by the wonderful malt-forward beers of Ireland and the idea of brewing with fire — so much so that he built several fired brewing systems until he perfected the process and brewhouse design.
He then engineered and commissioned a unique fire-heated brewhouse, allowing the brewery to produce a step temperature mash regime without scorching the wort. This process enables the brewery to precisely control enzyme activity while delicately caramelizing the sugars in the wort, leading to superior malty flavors and truly wonderful and unique beers.
