Richardson will serve as a new home to a craft beer house called Cultura Taphouse which traces its roots from Latin American founders according to a Community Impact article from February 21. They say,
“Craft beer bar Cultura Taphouse will open Feb. 22 near Richardson’s CityLine development. The taphouse will offer 30 rotating taps of craft beer and ciders from the North Texas area and the nation. Cultura, which is owned by brothers A.C. and Axel Cristales, will also offer a limited selection of local wines and a menu of Latin bites.
“Craft beer is a culture,” A.C. Cristales said, noting “cultura” translates to “culture.” “We’ve been influenced by our culture, not just our parents being both from Latin America, but even living here in the United States. We’re first-generation Americans, so culture is all around us and it’s influenced us. We want everybody who comes into Cultura to feel like ‘Oh, this is cool spot.'”
A.C. Cristales shared his experience on how he came to bring Cultura Taphouse to DFW and how it will be shaped in terms of its menu according to a CultureMap Dallas article from February 15 which reports,
“Dallas-Fort Worth does have craft beer bars, but I wanted to bring it to this neighborhood,” he says.
“As I visited places like Boston or Chicago, I would always go to breweries, and I love the culture — the way that, regardless of who you are, craft beer places always make you feel welcome. That’s what I want to bring,” he says.
He’s also a connoisseur who loves variety. “I’m one of those guys who doesn’t like drinking the same thing all the time,” he says.
Cultura will have 30 beers on tap, plus beers to go, including cans and bottles from breweries in Texas and across the U.S. It’s not a brewer, but merely a bar that specializes in craft beer. They’ll also serve wine, and a limited menu of food via partnerships with local restaurants and food trucks.
“We’ll have both local and national brands, hopefully that people never tried, and we’ll rotate them to keep introducing new things,” he says. “I want a variety, but don’t want it to be overwhelming.”
Cultura Taphouse will be located at 120 W. Cityline Drive, Ste. 600.
