What does the 8th Wonder Brewery do when it reaches icon status for its craft beers? It moves on to distilling spirits, of course!
Brewing craft beers in a dome-like warehouse, the founders of 8th Wonder Brewery jokingly named their company after the old moniker of the Houston Astrodome. In 1965, Houston Astrodome was the world’s first air-conditioned domed stadium and dubbed the “8th wonder of the world”.
8th Wonder Brewery was established in 2013, and promised “fermented fun in East Downtown Houston”. It has since become known for its different varieties of craft beers. In 2018, the company expanded to the liquor and spirits business by opening 8th Wonder Distillery right across the street from the brewery. They currently serve their house brand vodka and gin as well as cocktails and their craft beers at the distillery.
