Canarchy closes Deep Ellum in Texas, taking production elsewhere


The Monster/Canarchy-owned Deep Ellum Brewing will cease operations in Texas. Beer the portfolio will be brewed by Canarchy elsewhere.

12 years after opening in Dallas, Texas, Deep Ellum Brewing will shutter the taproom and operations as the Monster-owned Canarachy continues to make cuts and streamlines across its brand portfolio.

‘After 12+ amazing years of brewing and serving our beers in Deep Ellum, we’ve made the difficult decision to close our taproom and brewhouse and move production of the beer to other facilities in our network. Deep Ellum beers will continue to be produced and distributed to our wholesale partners and there will be no reduction in supply or availability,” the brewery announced in an Instagram post.

Canarchy has not disclosed where Deep Ellum will be brewed going forward, other than that the beers will continue to be available across Texas.

Deep Ellum was founded in 2011 by John Reardon. In 2018, the brewery was sold to Canarchy, a “disruptive craft beer collective” that owns Oskar Blues and Cigar City. In 2022, Monster Energy acquired Canarchy.

This news comes shortly after Canarchy announced they would lay off more than 12 staff at Cigar City in Tampa, Florida, including famed brewer Wayne Wambles, synonymous with the CCB brand
