Houston Breweries and Brewpubs Map

As Houston’s brewery scene has expanded in its size, it has also grown and gained both local and national attention because Houston beermakers have created their own unique spin on what is arguably the most popular style in the country: the New England Style India Pale Ale (NEIPA). The NEIPA substyle – adored for its massive fruits and tropical flavors with almost no bitterness smooth and creamy body that is often reminiscent of the taste of orange juice and may even taste similar to one–has marked a change in craft beer. These highly flavorful beers, which usually come packaged in 16-oz cans – rarely are sold in retail stores, which usually leads to thirsty beer drinkers lining out in front of breweries outside to purchase cans the same day that these beers come out of the cans due to their short shelf life and the availability.

The Houston brewery groups that are leading the charge for the new England IPA — or Hazy IPA, as is often called–are SpindleTap Brewery, B-52 Brewing in Conroe, Baa Baa Brewhouse in Brookshire along with Innovative Brewing in Humble. Each brewery has established a solid reputation based on anecdotal evidence for their distinctive and unique takes of the style, as well as the evidence to back them up. According to the popular app for evaluating beer on mobile, Untappd SpindleTap is rated with an average rating of a remarkably sturdy 4.27 five stars, for its unrefined IIPAs. Baa Baa a 4.1 out of five; while B-52 and Ingenious each score a 4.0 five out of 5. which is the highest of four marks in the group of Houston brewery owners who have released five or more styles of beer in the year 2018.

While their overall successes haven’t brought about the expansion of square footage yet the SpindleTap brand–whose appropriately named Juiceton Double IPA (pictured on page 1) marked a turning point in the style as well as for local Houston beer. The brewery and Baa Baa Brewhouse have recently expanded their brewing capacity by adding new fermenters and tanks which highlight a healthy craft beer industry in Houston now and looking ahead
