Houston and much of the rest of Texas have witnessed an upsurge in business over the last couple of years. Not just any business, but more specifically the business of beer. Every time we turn around, it seems another new brewery has been granted a license by the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission and can now begin selling beer commercially. And within the next two months, there will be yet another brewing operation added to the growing list. The operation has been christened Texian Brewing and it needs to clear just a couple more hurdles before it can begin distributing and selling its beer.
What Do You Know About Texian Brewing?:
If you’re like most people, you may not even know much about Texian Brewing (yet!), so let me fill you in on a few things. The brewery is the brainchild of Joshua Haley and it is located at 1125 FM- 359 in Richmond, Texas. It is the first ever brewery in Richmond and takes its name from the famed Texian Army- the legendary military organization that fought against the Mexican army during the Texas Revolution and helped Texas win its independence. Texian Brewing already has its licensing from the TABC and is now in the process of gaining government approval for its beer labels, so it is only a matter of time until the taps begin flowing for the first time at a tavern near you.
Texian Brewing plans to use its pilot system for the first two months of brewing while it awaits the arrival of a 30 BBL system in December. Since it will be technically the winter season (Okay, the “cool” season, since Houston doesn’t have a true winter), the plan is to release, at that time, the winter seasonal: Fireside, a vanilla coffee porter. And there is a very good chance that Sugarland’s Flying Saucer will serve as host to the first commercial tapping of a keg of Texian Brewing beer.
What About the Beer?:
As for the beer, Texian Brewing has already announced the starting lineup of regular offerings. Expect to see these products on tap within the next few months:
· Old 300 Pale Ale
· Battle Line Brown Ale
· Broken Bridge Dunkelweizen
· Fireside Winter Seasonal
When Can I Get Myself Some Texian Brew?:
As stated above, November is expected to be the month for the official launch of Texian Brewing beer. The goal is to open for tastings and tours in January or February and start bottling the beer in the spring of 2013.
