Plano Will Soon Have Its First Craft Brewery

Plano’s restaurant scene just keeps getting hotter, but the procession of new eateries will really start to ramp up once Legacy Hall makes its debut. Now, the city’s first food hall has announced that it will also bring Plano’s first craft brewery.

Announced via release, Unlawful Assembly Brewing Co. will open its doors on the top floor of Legacy Hall when the food hall finally makes its debut later this year. The brewery will craft between six and eight beers all year long, in addition to a rotating selection of “collaborative” and seasonal session brews.

Those brews will be served in a taproom that offers a view of the beer-making process, and will be crafted to pair with the array of cuisines on offer at Legacy Hall. Which means that you’ll be able to order a beer, then head over to Chef John Tesar’s Knife Burger or Matt McCallister’s mysterious Legacy Hall concept to eat.

“Like the name suggests, Unlawful Assembly won’t be afraid to break a few brewing rules, so we think it’s going to turn heads in North Texas as well as within the craft beer industry,” said Tim Timbs, Senior Vice President of Brewery Stuff, in a statement. “This cutting-edge brewery will brew, distribute and promote the highest quality, tastiest and most creative craft beers found anywhere.”

The brewery joins a bevy of new and familiar restaurant concepts that will open at Legacy Hall, including the aforementioned Knife Burger, an outpost of Glazed Donut Works, and restaurants from Chino Chinatown’s Uno Immanivong and Monkey King Noodle Co.’s Andrew Chen.

Unlawful Assembly Brewing Co. is set to open “concurrently” with Legacy Hall, which is slated for a Fall 2017 debut.
