29 Mar Galveston Bay Brewing
Clear Lake Shores, TX
Known For: Creative and approachable styles that pay homage to Texas and Galveston’s storied history.
Some of the older equipment you may see at Galveston Bay Brewing is from a brewery in Louisiana called Rikenjaks. That brewery started in Jackson, Louisiana and moved to Lake Charles. The current owners of Galveston Bay Beer bought out Rikenjaks in 2005 and moved the brewery here in 2008. Unfortunately, Texas was a few years away from allowing craft breweries to start small and grow. That opportunity came in 2013 and plans started to reopen the brewery. In 2019, the brewery has seen a new investment to reinvigorate the brand.
The Taproom offers small batch versions of unique and unusual brews, some only available here. We also promote the history of brewing in Galveston County through artifacts from the last 120 years.
