    Making Some Noise for Holler Brewing Co.

    Like many of us, John & Kathryn Holler moved to Houston to work, and, like many us, they found an unexpected home here; they could not think of a single place they’d rather open a brewery. In the four years after moving to Houston from Tampa, Florida in 2009, they grew attached to the city

What started as a trio of homebrewing buddies getting together to hone their craft and share

    8th Wonder 3rd Anniversary Celebr8ion

    Last month, 8th Wonder Brewery commemorated  their third anniversary with an all-day “Celebr8ion of Beer.” Fellow Houston Beer Guide writer Colleen Leary and I were able to attend the festivities and capture some of the musical acts, food trucks, vendors, and revelers in action.

  • Thanks Charles! We've decided to limit our map to Houston breweries (and breweries that primarily sell beer in Houston and/or its suburbs). While Shiner does have a 77XXX zip code, they are geographically much closer to Austin and San Antonio.

  • Shiner - Texas's largest craft brewery - is impacted by this barrel limit as well. They're currently the only craft brewery in Texas that isn't allowed to sell beer on site. They're unable to test out "small batch" beers sold on draft directly to consumers. Packaging and distribution is a huge portion of beer manufacturing, and preventing them from testing out new ideas is limiting their creativity and the potential discovery of a great new beer!

  • Excellent resource, the brewery map. I just want to request that you please add Spoetzl Brewery, in Shiner, Texas. Thank you!

  • I agree that Mr Goodman isn't the best messenger, but the message is still valid. The Texas Craft Brewer's Guild, comprised of the vast majority of Texas's small and independent breweries, is also against the Bill. If it passes, every brewery in Texas will be devalued. Investors will be less willing to invest, lenders will be less willing to lend, and breweries will find it more difficult to finance growth. This Bill will do nothing positive for small Texas breweries - it's only purpose is to increase the control distributors have over the Texas beer market. I personally no longer support breweries who have sold out to ABI, but I want that to be my choice and not a government mandate. Michael Graham Co-Founder Austin Beerworks
