Houston Brewery Series No. 1

5:40 AM

Happy first day of February... of 2019!? Can you believe it?! Because I sure can't.

Last year, I shared 3 different coffee shops I explored the previous month, and after a full year I hit almost all of the coffee shops within the main loop. As much as I would love to continue the series, I knew I would have a hard time driving out to coffee shops outside the loop on a regular basis. SO, after going to a few different breweries in January, I have decided to take on Houston breweries. There are so many scattered throughout the city and new ones popping up all the time, so what better excuse to drink more beer than to commit to going to 3 new breweries each month for an entire year?!

And here we go!

956 Judiway St, Houston, TX 77018

  • New brewery in the Heights area - they just opened in December!
  • Small neighborhood brewery feel
  • Lots of tables for groups
  • Outdoor games - Jenga and corn hole
  • Get a flight to try more of their beers!
  • Completely outdoors (don't go on a rainy day like we did!), although they do have large standing umbrellas and heaters

938 Wakefield Dr, Houston, TX 77018
  • Still relatively new, they opened in August 2017!
  • Indoor space with outdoor patio
  • Board games and cards available
  • All the grains used in making their beer is given to local farmers for livestock feed
  • You can bring your own food! Otherwise, they have a permanent food truck (The Purple Flour Pizza) every Wednesday-Sunday

 2000 Lyons Ave, Houston, TX 77020
  • Texas' oldest craft brewery
  • On-site kitchen with great food options
  • Beer Garden and Restaurant just opened up last year and it's very, very spacious 
  • They run FREE facility tours that are fun and informative
  • No outside food or alcohol allowed
  • Go on your birthday for a free pint!

I would love some of your recommendations for any breweries you might know of that is worth checking out! This past month, we took one of our Instagram followers' recommendations (Walking Stick) and loved it so much - please send us more!
