Cedar Creek Brewing

​When taking a trip to Cedar Creek Brewery, I suggest making a stop at the No.1 British Flying School Museum in Terrell and discoverr one of the most fascinating under told stories of North Texas during World War II. You will walk away with a great since of pride know that the town of Terrell did so much to help the war effort and to make the flyers feel right at home. Stop by the Double T Steak & Grill, at 307 IH 20 for a quick bite before heading over to the brewery. 

From there take a leisurely drive out to Seven Points Texas, to enjoy a tour and a tasting at Cedar Creek Brewing.  Session beers are their passion!  The beers are all brewed up in mostly repurposed dairy equipment if you can believe it.  Cedar Creek Brewery is open every Saturday for guided tours and tastings. All Tours include a Cedar Creek Brewery glass that you get to keep. During the tour we will give you three samples of our beer for free.
