It’s a father-son duo that own Sidecar Brewing. The guys have twenty years experience in with brewing beer.

“We grew up traveling a lot and spending a lot of time visiting different breweries anywhere we would go, much to my mom’s chagrin,” Sidecar Brewing co-owner, Daniel Anderson told KFDX. “Like a lot of people in Wichita Falls, we’d kind of kick the town saying we don’t have this or don’t have that. So after doing that for two years we finally decided, you know what? Let’s do it, let’s start a brewery.”

The guys go on to say that when one beer is finished, a new one will be right there to replace it. So if you want to try them out this weekend, they will be open Friday from 5 to 10. Also on Saturday from noon til 10.
