Whole Food Market Brewing Company

Craft Brewery in Houston - 0.88 mi

Whole Foods Market Brewing is one of two Whole Foods U.S. locations with a brewery inside the store. Its current brewer, James Carlyle, took over after his mentor Dave Ohmer left. According to James, the brewery is “an off the wall concept of grocery store and brewery in one”. This Houston location on 1700 Post Oak Blvd also distributes to a few bars including The Flying Saucer and Craft Beer Cellar. The other location in San Jose also has a brewery but does not serve other accounts. According to an online interview with James, the team uses a 5BBL system for now but hopes to expand soon, including canning their own brews.

Baileson Brewing Company

Craft Brewery in Houston - 2.49 mi

Established by husband Adam Cryer and his wife, Sarah Pope, the Baileson Brewing Company features two of man’s best friends – beers and pooches. The “pooches” part come from the company’s name – a combination of the couple’s two dogs Bailey and Jameson. (They have a third fur baby called Beau, who came later.) The brewery, of course, supplies the handcrafted beers, especially ales. Located in the outskirts of the Rice Village area in Houston, the brewery was an old gas station built in 1950 until the building became an auto-service station in the mid-1970s. The couple retained the exterior canopy, which serves as the brewpub’s patio, and fitted it with picnic tables. They allow non-beer fans to bring wine from their neighbor next door, and allow outside food. The place, of course, is “dog-friendliest”, with the couple claiming that their pooches “have better social lives” than their humans.

The Phoenix On Westheimer

Craft Brewery in Houston - 2.64 mi

Established in December 2006, Phoenix On Westheimer is a Houston neighborhood brewpub. This “home-away-from-home” invites guests to “a welcoming place” and features an extensive selection of house brews and craft beers from other popular Texas breweries. They also carry craft beers from other states, several national brands, and even European imports. There is wine, cocktails, and non-alcoholic beverages, of course, and the food menu is just as extensive. Because it’s a sports bar, after all, there are 5 large projection screens and 24 LED TVs. They even say that if a game is “televised or legally streamed”, they should have access to it. Not interested in the game? There are other ways to unwind, including billiards. Still not convinced? They have daily deals that might just make you drop by for a visit.

Buffalo Bayou Brewing Company

Craft Brewery in Houston - 3.25 mi

The Buffalo Bayou Brewing Company thrives on creativity and imagination. It has a simple mission: (1) “create great craft beer that is unapologetically Houston,” and (2) “bring people around great beer.” Their slogan reflects it – “Houston’s most creative brewery”. Founded by two friends Ras Zarinfar and Ryan Robertson in March 2011, many things have happened since they started at their original location on Nolda Street. Once a boat storage warehouse, they imagined, and created, a successful brewery and taproom business. About 70 craft beers later, they imagined bigger things for their Houston community. Within six weeks, the company raised $1M in funding from 583 individuals to build a 28,000 sq. ft. brewery and taproom. The new location opens in Fall 2019, with three floors of beer goodness. It’s much like, as the owners would like to say, Willy Wonka’s beer factory, but run by a Belgian monk in Texas cowboy boots! The deck offers spectacular views of the Houston skyline! Imagine that…

Karbach Brewing Co

Craft Brewery in Houston - 4.54 mi

Co-founders Ken Goodman and Chuck Robertson started with the distribution company CR Goodman Distribution Co., which brought in various labels into Texas. In 2008, they set out establish their own brewery, and by 2011, Karbach Brewing Company set up brewing operations in Houston. The company grew rapidly fast and the company moved to a larger brewhouse by 2014. In May 2016, the brewery added an on-site restaurant and biergarten. To much publicity in November 2016, the brewery announced the company's acquisition by Anheuser-Busch InBev. With this development, the brewery expects to expand capacity to 150,000 barrels per year in 2019. The brewery continues to produce popular its "mainstays" Hopadillo IPA, Love Street Kolsch-Style Blonde, and Crawford Bock, among others. They also continue to produce their popular seasonal and specialty series beers. Tip: The brewery conducts daily tours with schedules posted on their website. They require visitors, however, to wear closed-toe shoes.

Under The Radar Brewery

Craft Brewery in Houston - 4.56 mi

As with other craft breweries, Under The Radar Brewery got its start in homebrewing. Its three founders brewed in their garage until they realized they could bring their hobby to the next level. Starting out small and opening without so much as a sign, the brewery’s name suggests how things were initially done at the brewery. It also found a perfect spot among condos and townhomes, and further bolsters the under-the-radar nature of the brewery. Their taproom, though small, has an outdoor area, and serves five “usuals” (their core beers) and a couple of seasonal/ special beers. It’s also kid- and dog-friendly, much like a backyard in one’s neighborhood. They’re not canning their brews yet, but do check their website for updates on where their beers are available.

Eureka Heights Brewing Company

Craft Brewery in Houston - 4.73 mi

The six owners of Eureka Heights Brewing Company, three married couples actually, named their brewery after a fault line that runs through The Heights area in Houston. By design, the brewery specializes in “sessionable beers” with low ABVs. Seasonal offerings - some with higher ABVs - complement their core beers. At the spacious 20,000 square feet taproom, a former food distribution warehouse, visitors can see the gleaming stainless steel tanks while enjoying their beers. Open since fall 2016, the brewery is popular for their Wednesday Trivia Nights. The breweries started canning their beers in summer 2018, and these are already available in major stores. The team keeps things around the brewery light and humorous. For example, the owners usually name their beers after inside jokes or references.  Food is available via local food trucks, and the outdoor seating area is pet-friendly.

Holler Brewing Company

Craft Brewery in Houston - 4.74 mi

After a long circuitous life journey, husband and wife John and Kathryn found their true calling by establishing Holler Brewing Company. Thank the beer gods that the Hollers decided to move to Houston in 2009. To prepare, both ditched their unrelated old jobs, and separately undertook a different route towards the brewery business. John earned his diploma from Siebel Institute of Chicago. Kathryn, meanwhile, racked up hands-on experience at a brewery in Florida. In November 2016, they finally opened the brewery and haven’t looked back since. At the taproom, find a rotating list of about 6-8 beers. Stop by often. They have created over 100 brewing recipes since they started, and you’re bound to find something new with each visit. As if the beers aren’t enough, every Wednesday is Steak Night with their partner, Snow Topi.

Platypus Brewing

Craft Brewery in Houston - 4.84 mi

Platypus Brewing is a craft brewery and taproom serving “handcrafted beers and Australian-inspired comfort food” in cozy digs with a patio.

Craft Beer Cellar Houston

Craft Brewery in Houston - 5.67 mi

True Anomaly Brewing Company

Craft Brewery in Houston - 5.70 mi

True Anomaly Brewing specializes in “hop-forward ales, Belgian-style ales, and wild/sour fermented ‘explorations’”. With this kind of lineup of craft beers, the anomaly would be the right word. The story behind the brewery’s name is also based on the founders' day jobs. Also, the founders started as homebrewers. And, 10 years after and countless beer batches brewed, they finally decided to start a brewery. True Anomaly is also space-themed. This includes the building's exteriors. And also, the “contemporary-industrial interiors”. Plus, the NASA posters hanging from the walls and the names of its beers. All of which are related to the founders’ backgrounds.

4J Brewing Company

Craft Brewery in Houston - 5.74 mi

Great Heights Brewing Company

Craft Brewery in Houston - 5.87 mi

Sean Bednarz and Patrick Christian of Great Heights Brewing Company have been friends since fifth grade. During a camping in the summer of 2015, they stopped by at various breweries in Colorado, and started discussing the possibilities of opening one. In 2017, a few days before Harvey struck, they opened their doors to their new taproom. Prior to opening the brewery, both Sean and Christian held desk jobs with long hours. They say that putting up the company is “living the dream”. What makes their brewery extra special is that they chose to establish it in their old neighborhood of Garden Oaks/ Oak Forest. Today, Sean handles the brewing part while Patrick takes care of the sales side. Tips: The brewery is open daily but hours vary (check their website). The patio is pet-friendly, and there’s soda and popcorn for kids. There are food trucks from Wednesdays to Saturdays, but they don’t mind if you bring food from outside.

Saint Arnold Brewing Company

Craft Brewery in Houston - 6.53 mi

Saint Arnold Brewing Company is known for brewing world-class beers and delivering them to the customers as fresh as possible. Founded by Brock Wagner and Kevin Bartol, they chose Houston because it 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. Seven years after graduating, he revisited the idea, enlisted Kevin's help and the brewery was off and running. They brew several different beers that are available year round, as well as seasonal and a few single batch brews. They have a small crew that does everything at the brewery from brewing the beer, filtering the beer to bottling, and selling them. They are available in bars, restaurants, grocery stores, liquor stores and warehouse stores throughout Texas and Louisiana.

Brash Brewing Company

Craft Brewery in Houston - 6.68 mi

Brash Brewing Company is from the same man who brought Houston the famed Petrol Station, Ben Fullelove. The taproom opened to the public in late 2015, but the brewery was actually founded in 2012. Legal hurdles kept Ben from opening the brewery in Texas, and the brewery operated out of Massachusetts at its start. When Texas laws changed in 2013, Brash Brewing moved its operation back to Texas, and Brashland (Brash’s taproom) soon opened. Enthusiasts describe Brash Brewing as an “edgy brewery”. Their in-your-face attitude notwithstanding, the brewery scores many fans with its stouts and IPAs. The taproom is also heavy on the soundtrack with heavy metal playing at the jukebox. “You won’t find any strawberry beers or pilsners on tap,” says a review, but they do feature guest brews from other local breweries. Quick note: Many first-time visitors have difficulties finding Brashland. One last thing - they have circa 80's arcade games available!

Moon Tower Inn

Craft Brewery in Houston - 6.69 mi

Located in Houston, Moon Tower Inn attracts an eclectic, unpretentious crowd that gives you that small-town, everybody's-family feel. After a year’s hiatus and major renovation, they reopened in early 2013, offering “more the 60 different craft beers.” Though the space remains true to its previous form with the large patio and beer garden as the centerpiece, there are new elements such as an on-site brewing operation. They pump out some serious game dogs that are plump and meaty with over-the-top fillings, gourmet sausages such as the wild boar. In addition, Moon Tower also offers tons of specials, such as dollar beer nights, burgers and the monthly growlers giveaway. You won't have any problems finding space out on Moon Tower's covered patio or in their giant, fantastic yard. There are plenty of long wooden picnic tables to fill with friends, pints and sausages.
