Breweries in Houston

There are dozens of breweries in Houston and a dozen more brewpubs, all serving some of the best beer you’ve ever tasted.┬áHunter S. Thompson was right when he said, “Good people drink good beer,” but what about the people that make it? They’re good people too!

 

We’ve made it part of our goal to visit every one of the breweries in Houston and help them tell their story. Some of them are big, they have their own marketing machines, and they don’t need any help from us, but the smaller breweries in Houston don’t have that. We’re here to share every one of them, and below are some of our experiences so far.

  • It was a balmy afternoon in the Heights as the crew pulled up to the little blue building off of Calvalcade and North Main. Having been there before, the Town in City vets warned the rest of the team of the...

  • Even though Copperhead Brewery has only been open for 2 years, they've seen such tremendous growth in that time, but Seth would like that growth to...

  • When we asked Kris to share his biggest goal for BAKFISH Brewing, he said with a look of determination, "What's next! We want to continue to get our name out there and naturally see what...

  • Every time we visit a brewery, whether for a big write up like this or just for a few beers one afternoon, we always leave with a little gem. Jeff gets the credit today. "Beer is a commodity. We don't sell beer. We...

  • Cycler's Brewing has a few beers coming out soon. They'll have an India Pale Lager, a RIS with vanilla beans, a Rye Pils, a wild-plum kettle-sour, a new Belgian Trippel and some...

  • We asked a bit about the philosophy behind the beer and who they're trying to reach. Bobby explained to us that Back Pew Brewing isn't really interested in brewing beer to transition people from macro to craft. He believes there are plenty of other breweries that'll do that just fine. "We brew beer that we believe in, simple as that." That's why they put so

  • Kurt explained to us the thought process behind each beer. "We want to brew drinkable beers that lower the barrier of entry for people that drink macro." Their philosophy of brewing low ABV beers in various styles is an attempt to share more good beer with more people. They're also largely inspired when they're drinking, Bruce explained. "I usually have a be

  • Chris reached out to Baa Baa Brewhouse and introduced Beer Chronicle. He mentioned that we'd like to check the place out for a little write up. Not only did owners Marcus and Kinga welcome us, they opened the place up on a weekday evening, after work, just for us. That hospitality would set the tone for our visit.

  • We had a good time at Shiner Brewery, but it wasn't anything like we expected. Having been to breweries around town, our expectations may have been skewed a little bit (because Houston's so awesome) but despite that, we had fun and learned some...
