Elder Son Agrees to Buy Out Southern Yankee Beer Company

Early this afternoon, Elder Son Brewing has announced they have completed a buyout of Southern Yankee Beer Company, located off of FM1960, between I-45 and the Hardy Toll Road. The sale was finalized earlier today. Robert Frye, owner and brewer at Elder Son, has stated that the addition will serve as the breweries primary production facility. Elder Son plans to keep the tap room open at the new location, soon giving patrons two locations to enjoy Elder Son beer.

Elder Son plans to shift all brewing operations over to the FM1960 in the coming weeks, increasing production size from 47 barrels to 116 barrels. It will also give Frye needed space to establish a barrel aging program for the brewery, expanding canning options to promote more To-Go sales at both locations, as well as increase distribution opportunities for the brewery. The 1960 location will be closed until Thursday, February 29th, when it will reopen normal operations at that time. It will also continue to operate under the Southern Yankee name for the next several weeks as Elder Son transitions into the space. Frye also indicated the food truck will remain on site.
