Founded in 2018 by husband and wife, Patrick & Adriane Hodges, Bold Republic Brewing Company was Belton Texas' first craft brewery. In the four years since opening, the brewery had outgrown its original downtown Belton location. Honestly, the need for more space became evident in the first week of opening. Through a pandemic, the addition of a fourth child, and countless batches of beer, the Hodges made a bigger and better location a reality.
The new state of the art facility located in the Westfield area of Temple, Texas is a dream realized. The 2+ acre site, nestled in the heart of Crossroads Park features a commercial playground, large taproom and covered patio, 32 beer and wine taps, on-site axe throwing, a beautiful commercial kitchen and a game changing brewing facility.
"Our dream was to provide a place where people could get together from all walks of life and find common ground over a craft beer. Our motto has always been 'Community Over Consumption' and we truly believe that community is the backbone of small businesses like ours."-Patrick Hodges
Patrick and his team run the brewing operations, and Adriane, a former teacher, runs the day to day operations and kitchen. You can find them and their 4 kids running around the place most days.
The bar team is led by KK Ressler, a UMHB grad and craft beer lover who will always greet you with a smile.
Patrick's brewery team includes Matt Benavidez who comes to us by way of Austin Beerworks, & Chris Ferman, a retired KPD officer
Adriane's kitchen team is lead by Head Chef Ben Hernandez III, who has elevated our food offerings to a new level, bringing new twists to classic Pub food with a coastal southern flair.
The whole Hodges family is often pitching in, this place truly is a family affair. From our sister in law Jaime Hodges, who manages the events, to our parents taking a break from performing surgery to wash bar glasses, to our neighbor Richard Stillman and his leaf blowing abilities.
Our staff will always welcome you like family, because it is hard to consider the folks in our community customers when they so easily become friends.
We hope to see you soon, friends!
Patrick & Adriane Hodges
