From Division Brewing:

Thank you for celebrating NYE with us! We’re opening again Jan. 30th…hope to see you all again!


Division Brewing is Arlington’s first locally owned and operated brewery.  We provide true hand-crafted beer to the citizens and visitors of Arlington.  With a combined experience of over 20 years of home brewing beer and a strong local and neighborhood following, we are extremely excited to share our product with a wider audience.

In upholding the basic standards of brewing, we seek to elevate the beer drinker’s experience by introducing unique flavor combinations on a regular basis. Our belief is that people want quality, creativity and variety.  Division serves clean, refreshing light ales, such as blondes, wheats, and hoppy India pale ales.  We also brew malty amber beers, as well as dark porters and stouts.  Our “Sour Division” which ferments at warmer temperatures, ages with oak and sometimes fruit to create tart, fruity and mouth puckering sour beers.

The Crew


Wade Wadlington – Owner/Brewer

Wade grew up in Arlington.  At 16, he and his family moved to East Texas, where he began working at as a cowhand during high school.  Through hard work and long weekends, he quickly became known for his ability to get ‘r done.   Wade and his wife, Tami, worked in the finance industry while putting themselves through college. During that time, Wade was introduced to home brewing by a Scottish friend. Tasting true craft beer was a life-changing experience.  As they planned their family, Wade and Tami chose Arlington as their home. For over 20 years, Wade has practiced the art of making craft beer for neighbors and friends.  With the creation of Division Brewing, he brings his beer to a wider audience.


Sean Cooley – Brewer

Sean is a home brewer and ardent home cook. He spent his childhood years in Europe where he developed a passion for traditional methods of cooking, preserving and fermenting foods. Now he enjoys baking sourdough bread, smoking and curing meats, pickling fruits and vegetables, cheese making and brewing sour beers. By learning from and drawing on centuries of tradition, he is most inspired by putting new world spins on old world methods. Sean lives with his wife and two children in Arlington, Texas, where he works as a barista.

Tami Wadlington – Marketing

Tami was born and raised on a farm in East Texas.  She began college at 17, and married Wade two years later. After graduating from college, she worked in banking, developing marketing materials and planning events for a national bank and trust company. Over the past 12 years, Tami has helped launch two private banks, managing marketing, human resources, and facilities. Tami brings her enthusiasm, marketing, and management skills to the table to help grow the business and spread the craft beer doctrine.


John Purdy, Brew Crew/Resident MacGyver

John has lived in Arlington his entire life. He knows most everybody – and if he doesn’t know you, he probably knows someone who does.  John has a passion for cooking and perfecting new recipes.  He especially loves barbecuing and smoking meat.  A purist, he demonstrates his grilling techniques on his dad’s 1968 Kamado (the original “Big Green Egg”).  John’s day job is in the IT world, but he would rather be brewing beer with the guys.  John lives with his wife, Laurie, and a menagerie of cats and dogs.  In fact, he has been known to name his cats after favorite brewers or beers (Fish – after the co-owner of Telluride Brewing in Colorado, and Stella, after Stella Artois).
