After just over three years of brewing (and serving) beer in Denton, Audacity Brew House will likely be closing its doors soon.
An memo sent to investors by Audacity owner Doug Smith and provided to Eater by a tipster indicates that the brewery will “immediately” cease production due to slow sales in the brewery’s taproom. Opened in 2014, Audacity was Denton’s first craft brewery. It’s been a haven for beer geeks, who schlepped to the brewery to fill their growlers and taste new brews.
Audacity has certainly been part of DFW’s craft beer boom in recent years, and despite this closure, that doesn’t show any signs of slowing down any time soon. Pegasus Brewing Company opened earlier this year, Westlake Brewing Company will set up shop in Deep Ellum in the coming months, and Unlawful Assembly Brewing Company is set to arrive at Plano’s Legacy Hall in early November.
Smith has not returned Eater’s requests for comment, but the Denton Record-Chronicle reports that Audacity Brew House will close on November 11. Pour one out.
