Experience Complexity


About Us

Cypress Creek Southern Ales is a family owned and operated, veteran owned, small batch, nano-brewery, where we are hand crafting unique and flavorful Texas inspired beers and ales. Our passion for beer and brewing knows no bounds and and our owner has been deeply involved in the craft beer market for many years. Like a lot of other breweries before us, we have a very simple goal; brew the beers we want to drink.

Planning a visit to the tap room? If so, you can find us in Winnsboro TX, directly behind the old train depot on the South side of the Tracks... you can't miss it. Upon entering the tap room make your way to the back where you will find a small serving bar. We have limited indoor seating, but during nice weather, please enjoy our outdoor patio.

We invite all guests, 21 and over, to hangout, enjoy our beers, and chat with us and our other guests. During good weather months our outdoor venue is open for backyard games, such as cornhole. We love meeting new people and seeing our friends and familiar faces so come on by for a visit. However, at this time, we ask that you leave your underage children and pets at home.

The possibilities are endless so come visit us and join our brewing adventure and you too can Experience Complexity!

Our Beer Philosophy

Cypress Creek Southern Ales Draft Beer

Beer for the Craft Palate

When I first became introduced with what I'll refer to as “better beer,” it was over a decade ago, on a business trip to Belgium. In those days I was a macro beer drinker like most, however, when I returned to the States, I started my journey into the "craft" world. I was obsessed with trying every new style and every new offering I could get my hands on.

This concept is a cornerstone here at Cypress Creek Southern Ales. We brew what we want to drink and we think you will like it too. Our beers are not "safe", but they also are not "extreme". We consider our beer offerings to be complex, multi-dimensional and a flavorful experience on the palate. We want your experience to be challenging, but drinkable, a gateway to more unique and better flavors.

This concept is something we had rarely experienced as we made our way through the craft beer world. But during our continuing journey, we came to have a great appreciation for those brewers testing the limits of each style and making beer that was unique to their specific brewery.

Cypress Creek Southern Ales Flight

Not just a saying

One of the major concepts at Cypress Creek Southern Ales is the idea that beer should be full flavored. Often, when we traveled and sampled beers from all over, we were left with a single identifying characteristic that could sum up our drinking experience.

So when we started crafting our own beers, we wanted to make beer that was complex, with varying depths of flavors, one that, as you let it warm up, changed in unique and subtle ways. And when you tried to describe the flavor profile, you listed off multiple attributes that all complimented each other.

Beer made in this fashion is more expensive, it is harder to craft, but we wouldn't have it any other way. Why? You, the customer. We think you deserve the best tasting beer we can make. And we keep it reasonable so you can enjoy the beer and know it is not hard on the pocketbook.

We offer a variety of unique and flavorful beers, poured from 10 rotating taps. Follow us on Untappd to be kept up-to-date on what we are currently serving.

We offer our beer in two different formats; a 12 oz Belgian beer glass and a 4 oz Taster. Or choose a Beer Flight and get five 4 oz beers.
When you are here you are family

Visiting the Taproom?
When you are here, you are family.

Our taproom is small, like living room small. So when you visit us, it's like visiting your close friend at their house. But that is exactly how we wanted it. So stop on by for a beer, visit with our other guests and maybe hang around for some indoor and outdoor games.

We always have some great beer on tap and when you visit, grab yourself a brewery shirt, it's worth 10% off for full beers EVERY TIME YOU VISIT. Hope to see you around. Cheers.

Directly from the Brewery

Beer To-Go

Here at Cypress Creek Southern Ales we are very concerned with the quality and the customer experience, of the beer we brew and serve. For that reason, we have delayed offering full time Beer-To-Go, until we were sure we had a system that would allow you to have (as close as we could get to) the same experience as you would, direct from the taps at the brewery.

Cypress Creek Southern Aleas has purchased and is using, a growler filling aparatus that fully purges the container with CO2, pressurizees the bottle to the same pressure as the source and fills the container from the bottom up. This will give you the best experience when you get home and pop open the container for the first glass, just like we poured it for you at the taproom. It will also ensure that the container maintains the quality of its contents longer, due to the CO2 that remained in suspension when initially filled.

You will never see us (unless it is an extreme circumstance), placing a tube on one of our taps and filling a growler of any kind. That's just not us, as it doesn't do justice to the beer, and does not meet our high standards. Filling a growler in this manner is not the way we will perform growler fills, as the instant you begin pulling the tap handle, CO2 begins leaving the beer and degrades the quality of what you will experince. Unless the establishment is using a pressurized container and a counter-pressure filler, it is plain and simply sub-standard.

Cypress Creek Southern Ales has a limited supply of beer available for Beer-To-Go*. However, at this time, we will be allowing customers to bring in their own personal Growlers for filling from a variety of our available beers on tap (limit 64 oz per person). We prefer and recommend 32 oz, flip top growlers with a silicone seal to ensure longevity and freshness. We also ask that the growler be cleaned and sanitized prior to bringing it into the brewery for filling. We will perform a quick rinse, but to ensure you get the best experience, please clean your growlers thoroughly.
