Top Beer Brewers You Absolutely Must Visit In Houston
If you love a great craft beer, you’ll be glad to know that we here at Proguard have discovered that Houston is home to some of the absolutely best beer breweries not just in the Lone Star State, but in fact the United States. Whether you are looking for a beer with a smooth, mild taste or one that nearly knocks you off your feet with that first sip, you can find all of this and much more once you start touring some local breweries. Now that you know what’s out there waiting for you, here are our recommendations for which breweries you need to pay a visit to in the weeks ahead.
Buffalo Bayou Brewing Company
Located in Sawyer Yards, Buffalo Bayou Brewing Company is easily our top choice for what should be the very first brewery you visit here in Houston. Known for their creativity, the folks at Buffalo Bayou come up with all kinds of interesting concoctions, including their Banana Foster ale, Creamsicle, and a thick, bold malt known as Smoke on the Bayou. In addition to the brewery itself, you can also enjoy an on-site restaurant that offers great pizza and appetizers, all the while hanging out on the rooftop party area to catch stunning views of the Houston skyline.
8th Wonder Brewery
Giving Buffalo Bayou a run for its money, 8th Wonder Brewery is also one of our favorites. Known primarily for its lighter ales, many of which have Houston-themed names, 8th Wonder also has many beers on its list that have been created in collaboration with local rappers such as Bun B and Slim Thug. Once you make your selection and decide to stay for a while, you can head out to the brewery’s beer garden and admire the sculptures created by Houston artist David Adickes.
Eureka Heights Brew Company
If you’ve just spent the day with family or friends doing something fun like having a softball game or throwing a frisbee in the park, you need to end your day with stopping by Eureka Heights Brew Company. Always innovative, the craft brewers at Eureka have quite a reputation for their cream ales, especially their creations Buckle Bunny and IPA Mini Boss. However, if you really want to try some crazy beer while you’re in The Heights, take a stab at such options as Stun Gravy and Nuke the Whales. A brewery known for having an offbeat sense of humor, you never know what you may find at Eureka.
Great Heights Brewing Company
Should you be like many of us here at Proguard and consider yourself to be a bona fide beer geek, you’ll love the offerings and the atmosphere at Great Heights Brewing Company. Found in the Garden Oaks-Oak Forest area, this place is willing to try anything and everything when it comes to beer. If you are scanning the various selections and are having trouble making up your mind, we suggest the Galactic Fruitier Pellets brew. Described as hazy and hoppy, that’s probably how you’ll feel after drinking a glass or two. But before you get too hazy, don’t forget to try out the beanbag toss on the back patio, and also the Thursday night trivia games.
Spindletap Brewing Company
Along with great beer such as Diamonds in My Mouth, this Spindletap Brewing Company, Northside brewery also has many other activities going on during the year. Some of the most popular events include its chili cookoffs, crawfish boils, and beer dinners. As an added bonus, you can also get some of the best food truck pizza in the state from frequent resident Texzas Wood-Fired Pizza.
Under the Radar Brewing
Living up to its name, Under the Radar Brewing in Midtown is a small yet up-and-coming brewery in Houston. Considered to be a great place for the younger folks to hang out while enjoying their beer, it offers many traditional-style brews that are crisp, refreshing, and make your taste buds sit up and take notice. If you’re looking for an out-of-the-way brewery that is not as well-known, we highly recommend Under the Radar.
