DECA Beer Company is Serving Up Something for Everyone

After nearly two years of planning, DECA Beer Company is the newest brewery in the Houston area, opening its Montgomery County and Porter taproom and brewery in early February 2021. DECA was dreamed up by four friends who wanted to create a brewery where everyone could enjoy something — from those who like Budweiser to those who enjoy a heavy stout.

DECA has a quaint but comfortable tap room, which can easily sit 40. The brewery also has an outdoor space with picnic tables. There are plans to add a permanent enclosure to make the outdoor space more practical during warmer weather.

The beer was absolutely delightful. The four owners all have different beer preferences and that reflects the beer selection. The beer selection is easily the most robust I have seen from a brand-new brewery. There were ten options available ranging from the light Lite Brite to the heavier Stout and Knox Road Porter and the very impressive 9.2% Mon Ami Saison. Cody Evans, chief brewer, credits the brewery’s smaller five-barrel system for giving DECA the flexibility to brew a lot of different types of beer.

A couple of my favorite beers were the SMASH Mosaic IPA and the ESB. The IPA was clean and smooth with the right amount of hops. The ESB was a little sweet, a little malty, plus it’s a style that only a couple breweries in Houston brew.

Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed my visit to DECA beer company. The atmosphere was friendly and inviting plus the beer was top notch. The mainstay food truck is Uncle Tony’s selling beer-drinking classics like hamburgers, fried pickles and other sandwiches. 

With the addition of DECA, the northeast part of Houston has become a premier destination for beer. Back Pew and Megaton are just a couple miles down the road from DECA; Ingenious is a little further over in Humble while City Acre and Spindletap round out this premier beer area.

    Middie Back Amber Ale from Elder Son Brewery in the Heights

    In my personal opinion, I feel Houston has been lacking in American amber style beer options. What was once a booming style has been dwindled down to just a small handful of breweries offering a solid year round amble ale. I found what is definitely a contender for my favorite amber in Middie Back from Elder Son Brewing.
