Overview

The Houston brewery offers an immersive experience, perfect for visitors of all ages. From the advanced brewing technology to the history displays, you will gain a better understanding of the historical significance of one of America’s oldest brewers. Opened in 1966, the Houston Brewery has quickly become one of our “greenest” breweries. The brewery gets some of its energy from landfill gas that is piped in six miles from the nearby McCarty Landfill. On average, the brewery sources approximately 30 percent of its energy needs from alternative energy. The brewery’s energy efficiency and conservation efforts also include an on-site bio-energy recovery system (BERS), where brewery wastewater can be recycled adding to our water conservation efforts.

I’m a home brewer and this was very special to me. Very nice competent guide. Were going throught all processes of brewing including the hop storage and the yeast lab. All staff we met was really nice and clearly was proud of their work here....More

I really enjoyed the tour. Only 10 bucks, came with a couple of free pints, and the gift shop is very reasonably priced.

The tour was very informative. Our tour guide was fairly new and quite nervous but he knew all his information. The disappointment for us was that we're from Canada and when I phoned for information I was told the Clydesdales were going to be there...More

Our tour guide was knowledgeable and kept things interesting. Sundays are slower so if you are more interested in production choose another day. We did see some of the packaging process. The beer tasting experience was a lot of fun!
