Eccentric Brewing Company got its start after winning a $72,000 grant. Awarded by the Midland Entrepreneurial Challenge, its owners Jamie Ehl and Aaron Pachlhofer soon began local operations in May 2018. The brewery is credited to be the first craft beer brewed in Midland. The brewery's creations are now available in about 14 locations around Midland, but the pair is still finding their footing in the Texas’ craft beer industry. With twelve craft beer creations so far, they have yet to establish their own taproom.
The brewery started distributing their beers on July 20, 2018 at Midland Beer Garden, whose owner also helped clinch the grant for them. They describe their first brew, Eccentric No. 1, as “a bold, amber ale (showcasing) the classic flavors that have made Belgian beers famous”. Eccentric #2, meanwhile, is “a Belgian pale ale that begins with aromas of tropical fruit”.
Tall City Brewing is one of the newest additions to the Texas brewery landscape. Its five owners shared a common dream of creating a brewery for Midland, and wanted to create a beautiful taproom to complete the dream. They made that dream a reality this past November 2019. The brewery's owners are Jeff Thomas, Erich Schmidt, Nicholas Schmidt, Jarrod Sparks, Josh Sparks, and master brewer Jack Sparks.
The owners promise “an amazing craft beer experience” at their taproom. There will be "something for everyone" including wine, carbonated mineral water, and cold brewed coffee for those who prefer other beverages. Currently, the taproom opens from Thursdays to Sundays (hours vary). They launched with five beers including Five Hour Drive Honey Blonde Ale and Haboob Hefeweizen.
The Patio Drafthouse beautifully marries together great craft beer and delicious Mexican dishes. On-tap, you'll find they have a wide array of local craft beers as well as classic brews. Great food pairings, of course, are expected where beer lovers can be spoiled with juicy burgers, tostadas de ceviche, or their salmon spinach salad. Their flavorful Chicken Poblano is a must-try that's grilled chicken breast topped with avocado, melted cheese, and poblano sauce - a treat for the palate.
Lee and Lisa Friske, the husband and wife team behind Frisky Restaurant and Brewing, loved beers. They also had a dream. They used to run a successful welding business but had always wanted to chase their dream of opening a brewpub. And chase it they did.
After selling the welding business, they bought a 3-acre property and set to work on their dream. Lee enrolled at a brewing institute, and Lisa took culinary classes. Meanwhile, both started joining brewing competitions and took home medals. They finally opened their dream brewpub on August 2018. Lee actually “loved beer before he loved beer”. He used to collect beer cans as a kid and became fascinated with the beer can designs. Their brewpub has earned good reviews for its beautiful design.
