    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

    Beer Is Flowing From Eureka Heights

    Stop me if you’ve heard this one: local brewery set to open doors in renovated food service warehouse.

    There’s still plenty of summer sun to soak up and Houston’s newest brewery–a phrase becoming more and more common around here–Under the Radar, is looking to help you do just that at their grand opening August 27th, in Midtown. What started as a trio of homebrewing buddies getting together to hone their craft and share

    City Acre: Right at Home at Houston’s New Brewpub

    On Thursday night I attended a preview of the much anticipated City Acre Brewing Co., a brewpub located about 10 minutes north of downtown off U.S. 59 at 3418 Topping Street. Originally slated to open four years ago, but delayed due to complex city regulations and beer laws, City Acre will hold its long-awaited grand opening on July

    Dog Will Hunt – Running Walker Brewery

    Just down FM 359 from Texian Brewing in Richmond, Running Walker is laying the chips to become a major player in the Houston area craft beer scene. A few of their beers are starting to show up in accounts around town, and they have much bigger plans in the upcoming months. Fellow Houston Beer Guide

    BAKFISH Brewing Company

    Over the last few years, there has been a lot of growth in the number of breweries in the Houston area. Unfortunately for this Friendswood dweller, the majority of that growth has not touched the Southeast side of town. Brian Allen and Kris Szecsy took notice of this and intentionally found a location for their brewery on

    Saloon Door Brewing Preview

    The West Coast vibe of Saloon Door Brewery isn’t obvious when you walk through the doors: cedar planks cover the lower half of the walls, vintage chairs surround the tables, and even the name evokes a distinctly Texas feel. But when you talk to the crew responsible for the idea and execution of getting this

    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

  • 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
