What We Do

Deep in the heart of Cedar Hill

Quality and artisan craftsmanship is at the heart of what we do at Ash & Ember Brewing.

Our founders have been brewing tasty, award winning beers together since 2013. What started as a passionate hobby of two home brewers has turned into a great adventure of creating craft beers that remain true to their styles. We are dedicated to finding the right, high-quality ingredients to hand craft fresh and unique beers that revive timeless flavors and offer a unique community experience.

Producing only what we love, the goal is simple: make incredible beer.

Nestled in the heart of DFW – in historic Cedar Hill, Texas our custom built tasting room offers a unique experience of fresh, quality beers on tap as well as to go growlers.

Meet the Crew

Brian Krajcirovic


Brian’s family is from Slovakia, which explains why he loves a good Czech/Slovak-style pilsner. He grew up in Michigan & Florida, and followed his college sweetheart back to her hometown in Mansfield, Texas. He’s worked in hospitality and bartending as well as business, marketing, sales, computer graphics, and IT development. As an avid beer taster (and drinker), he started home brewing in his garage in 2005 and began brewing with his friend, Tim, in 2013. After winning brewing competitions, the two decided to take their passionate hobby of brewing and open their own brewery. Don’t be surprised if you stop by and find him pouring beers, taking orders or chatting about beer. He loves traditional beer styles that everyone can enjoy, straying true to making incredible tasting beers instead of following trends.

Colin Graham


Colin’s passion for beer was passed down to him from his dad - a home brewer of beer, wine & mead. He helped make his first brew at 8 years old, and has been brewing on and off ever since. He has worked in hospitality and bartending for about 2 years. His favorite beer styles are Scottish Ales, and his favorites from A&E (so far) are our Lumber Yard Lager and the High Pointe Porter. When he's not slinging or brewing beer you’ll find him writing, reading, and spending time with his super cool family and incredible girlfriend.

Tim Martin


Tim grew up in Cedar Hill, graduated from Cedar Hill High School and was an Eagle Scout in Troop 520. Throughout high school and after, he worked downtown at Phillips Lumber and became a regular at Sam’s Pizza. During a month long trip to Ireland and the U.K., he discovered an affinity for trying new and regional beers. He began home brewing in 2009, sometimes attempting to grow his own hops in his garden or trying new yeast strains. In 2013, Tim began home brewing with his buddy, Brian. Taking turns brewing in each other’s garages, Tim cultivated his passion for trying, tasting and creating new recipes. From there Tim & Brian entered various brewing competitions, winning awards for their porters, scottish ales, and more. Having lived in various spots throughout the metroplex, opening a brewery in Cedar Hill is a big homecoming for Tim. He loves traditional beer styles and bringing out unique flavors through classic ingredients. Outside of brewing he loves being a dad and husband.
