New microbrewery coming to Justin

Rabbit Hole Brewing, a new craft microbrewery opening in Texas, has selected the city of Justin in Denton County as its initial business location with a grand opening scheduled for 2013, officials with the company said in a news release.

Rabbit Hole Brewing will begin operations at 608 Topeka Ave. while finalizing plans to construct the permanent entrance to the Rabbit Hole across the street at 106 East Sixth St. inside the Justin Industrial Park, officials with the company said in the release. No official date has been announced.

Local crafters Matt Morriss, Tom Anderson and Laron Cheek are well known in the North Texas homebrewing community as the Horsemen of the Hopocalypse, and have taken the next step by becoming founders of Rabbit Hole Brewing. Matt Morriss is a native Texan and a graduate of Texas A&M University. He and Tom Anderson, a graduate of the University of Scranton in Scranton, Pa., are the founding members of the Fort-Worth-based Horsemen of the Hopocalypse; between them, Matt and Tom hold nearly one hundred homebrewing awards from competitions around the state and across the country, a release said. They are joined by Laron Cheek, a native Texan and former United States Marine, to establish the upcoming craft microbrewery.
