THE OFFICIALLY UNOFFICIAL LIST OF HOUSTON BREWERIES

These are all 65 of the active breweries that represent the Greater Houston Area and a few that don’t, but they hope to soon. If you’re unsure of anything – hours, food, etc., please call first. You can also view them in map form here.

 

Houston’s big – REAL BIG. If you’re from out of town looking to brewery hop, you’ll realize just how big. As the largest city in the US (geographically) there’s a lot of ground to cover, and this list even extends a bit beyond Houston.

 

We’ll continue to visit each and every brewery below to find out a bit more about their history, what makes them unique and what sort of beers they offer. We’ll document it here. If you know something we don’t, hit us up on IGFacebook, or shoot us an email here.

 

We’ll also be writing reviews of their beers and our experience at the brewery. Beers to you, Houston!

Their diverse appreciation for beer also means the offerings won’t be one-dimensional (AKA there will be West Coast IPAs)

Fullelove mentioned that he consulted with Jeff Stuffing from Austin’s Jester King Brewery and Scott Metzger from San Antonio’s Freetail Brewery before he brought Brash home.

Equal Parts Brewing

Beer to Try: Murry Chrimmus Imperial Porter, Intermezzo Sour, Löggerbier Pilsner

 

Equal Parts brews beers that highlight the tension between process and creativity. They are a group of tight-knit, hyper-critical people that will never settle for good enough. Their rebrand came on the heals of the realization that Sigma was Nick and Matt’s brainchild from their homebrew days. However, the community and their team were just as important, if not more, so they took a step back to revisit what parts made up the brewery. The end result was equal.

They focus on brewing cleanly-fermented ales that are fault-free true-to-style.

Holler Brewing Co

Beer to Try: Looyah Milk Stout, Dollar Pils Y’all, Holler ESB (GABF Bronze)

 

The brewery is their name, so it’s deeply personal. Some call them uncreative, some call them egomaniacs. They prefer “committed”. Their name is on their product, so they take it as seriously as they take themselves (highly seriously).. John & Kathryn have journeyed from creating lesson plans, TPS reports & Excel sheets to the joy and pleasure of making beer. If you ask any industry people in Houston what brewery they spend the most time at, 10 of 10 will put Holler in their top 5. After a GABF win and a Certified Cicerone® achievement in their first year of operation, they’ve been blowing minds and changing lives one pint at a time.

Saint Arnold Brewing Company

Inside the Loop – Near Northside

Founded: June 1994

Known For: Texas’ Oldest Craft Brewery

Beer to Try: Ale WaggerArt Car IPAIcon Series5 O’Clock PilsPub Crawl Pale Ale

One of the Houston Breweries that started it all. Our first keg of beer was shipped on June 9, 1994. Founded by Brock Wagner and Kevin Bartol, we chose Houston because, other than living here, this was the largest city in the country that did not have a microbrewery. Brock was a longtime homebrewer and had considered opening a brewery as far back as college, although that was quickly dismissed as a silly idea. Seven years after graduating, Brock revisited the idea, enlisted Kevin’s help and the brewery was off and running. Kevin has since left the business after a bitter battle. (Just kidding – but don’t you wish people wrote that when it was the truth?).

True Anomaly Brewing

Inside the Loop – EADO

2012 Dallas St, Houston, TX 77003

Opened: February 2019 

Known For: Drinking boldly; providing Touch Tours for those who are blind and low-vision. 

Beer to Try: Small Giant Grisette, Ben’s House IPA, Contact Light Saison

 

True Anomaly is what happens when a bunch of space city rocket scientists become brewery owners. It’s a twist on a familiar narrative: four guys start out in a garage with some brewing equipment and a dream — and after hundreds of test batches, learn to hone their craft. Though, this group may have a bit of a leg up, coming from a background as being former rocket scientists, space-suit developers, and mission managers. What started in the garage has grown into True Anomaly. Inspired by a shared fascination with science, outer space, and the energy, history, and all-around awesomeness that is Houston, Texas, they set out to brew beers that are original, delicious, and just a little (or a lot) off the mean trajectory.

They focus on Belgain styles that are less-attempted by Houston area brewers, but he’s also a hop fiend that’s always tinkering..

Montgomery, TX

Cyclers Brewing came about by friends who enjoy varied taste elements in food. Food is social. It has been, and it always will be. This transferred over into our varied creation of ales along with their different taste elements that we enjoy. Their genesis spawned from a love of cycling, and apparently cycling and craft beer go hand in hand – who knew? After a long ride years ago, the owner and head brewer Clay, was handed his first craft beer and it changed his world. Ever since then, he’s been on the hunt for new and varying beer. Applying his beer knowledge from being an area manager for Coors, Clay, his wife Tina, and the Cycler’s team have been brewing great beer on a piece of land with picturesque scenery.

Over time this process led to exceptional and inventive beer. “Ingenious” perfectly symbolizes our philosophy that brewing beer is equal parts science and creativity.

Combining the (2) brewmaster’s love of art and science to make delicious, painstaking-attention-to-detail beer, SpindleTap has grown really quickly in their first year. They’ve experienced a “boom” of their own, you could say. 

Co-Founders Brody Chapman, David Miller, Shaun Ebersole, Cameron Banks and Adam Wright worked together for a logistics company. Initially their intentions for the brewery were small. They wanted to create a tiny, humble, yet fun place to bring customers to entertain them. Golf course? Old news. Fishing trips? Done that. How about a brewery!? Hell. Yes. 

But like all good things, when combined with passion and a couple of dudes with a “get the job done” attitude, the humble goals of SpindleTap Brewery grew into big, lofty ones that had them reconsidering everything.

WEST HOUSTON BREWERIES

4J Brewing Company

Spring Branch, TX

1348 Cedar Post Ln, Houston, TX 77055

Opened: March 24th 2018

Known For: Women-owned and family-operated.   

Beer to Try: Amber Red Ale, Blonde Ale

 

The family, including previous generations, has lived in Spring Branch for nearly 100 years. The name 4J comes from the four “J” siblings – Jessica, Jackie, Joanna, and Jennifer. Having four girls whose names all start with a J made it tough on poor dad. He would refer to each of the girls by order of birth.

The youngest, #4, and Dad started home brewing together years ago, living by the motto “makin’ some and drinkin’ some.” The beer was always a hit at family events so one day, #4 and Mom decided to “steal” Dad’s hobby and shape it into a business. Dad, the official taste tester and brewmaster, quickly warmed up to the idea because he always has enough beer to drink. Mom and #4 sure do have their work cut out for them making sure he leaves some for others!

Marcus and his wife Kinga want their small establishment to be family friendly, so the name of their brew house is a take on the nursery rhyme Baa Baa Blacksheep.

Since brewing their first NEIPA, they haven’t looked back. They still keep a few standards on deck, but they’re canning hazy IPAs every other week and killing it on the secondary market.

Dog friendly, kid friendly, everybody of every race, gender, and faith friendly. They’re just friendly.

No Label Brewing Co

Katy, TX

No Label Brewing Co. truly began one sunny Saturday afternoon in the spring of 2009. The Royo family was sitting on the back porch enjoying some of Brian’s homebrew. After many pints, the conversation turned to the possibility of opening their own brewery. Although none of them had any experience running a brewery, they decided to give it a try.

No Label Brewing Co.’s first home was an old rice silo sitting empty in Old Town Katy. They signed the lease and after many months of sweat and tears the brewery was ready. They started holding small tastings for family and friends, who told their families and friends, and the numbers began to grow.

HOUSTON BREWERIES IN BRYAN – COLLEGE STATION AREA

Opened: November 2013 

Known For: being in a cozy spot on Main street in downtown historic Bryan. 

Beer to Try: Border Town Mexican Lager, Contract Killer Porter, Mulligan Kölsch

 

On account of their fierce beer lovin’ spirit, BWD hunkered down for a great brewed oddity that would whet whistles and tickle their tastes. The suds of Blackwater Draw Brewing Co. are akin to their namesake, the beautiful birthplace of the mighty Brazos River: The Blackwater Draw. Now unlike that sludgy, unsanitary, downstream water that courses through the Brazos Valley, the beautiful Blackwater Draw sources unadulterated H-twenty. BWD follows this simple precept with brew-making, and believe it to be true that their time is not ill spent. Their beer is brewed in-house and is as sweet and pure as the water that pours from the Blackwater Draw.

The Blackwater Draw Brewing Co. makes bona fide craft beers that are as cultured as the grain that makes them. Consider them the safehouse for your gang while you hunker down, arouse your appetite, and satiate your thirst.
