    Conservatory: A new food hall and beer garden in downtown Houston

    The founders of Prohibition Supperclub & Bar have opened a new craft beer and food destination in downtown Houston: Conservatory. Upon entering Conservatory, one can’t help but be amazed by the stunning marble floors, interesting architectural elements of the building, and industrial and wooden fixtures. The underground beer garden and food hall offers a unique setup and experience to the

    Mongoose versus Cobra has the best flights in Houston

    Back in August, I asked, “Where are Houston’s flights?” Since then, many breweries have begun offering flights, and slowly, my vision for a small-drink Houston brewery scene is coming true. At the same time, a few bars have begun offering flights, including what is probably the greatest flight program in Houston at Mongoose versus Cobra

    Century-Old Axelrad Building Sees New Life as Beer Garden

    Opening within arm’s reach of Luigi’s, one of Houston’s finest pizza joints, Axelrad Beer Garden is hoping to inspire Houstonians to slow down, enjoy good company, and imbibe great beer. Featuring a massive beer garden, the new spot will have a hammock grove, lawn games, live music, and plenty of open space to sit back

    History is Being Brewed in Downtown Alvin

    There’s been a lot of talk in the Houston beer community about how the “solution to our problems” will be neighborhood-focused breweries. Houston’s urban sprawl makes it unlikely that we will duplicate the brewery-every-mile format of more developed beer cities, but that also makes it the perfect environment to have a brewery (or two or three)

    Ode on a Neighborhood Pub

    With apologies to John Keats, some places simply invite one to wax poetic, to recall myriad formal examples of Plato’s ideal, to open the floodgates of memory like Proust’s madeleine. I’m speaking here of those neighborhood pubs so woven into the fabric of their environs that they nigh attain the original function of the icehouse

  • 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
