Some of the Most Delicious Beer is Made Here in Brenham Brewery

Craft Breweries in Texas

Brenham Brewery is home to some is the most delicious beer, handmade right here in Brenham Texas by four guys who have been friends for a long time. Like so many boutique wineries and small craft breweries, Brenham Brewery was started in their garage by four friends who really like good beer and were on a mission to see if they could create their own delicious brews. As so many businesses started from home do, this one soon outgrew their backyards and garage, ultimately taking on a life of its’ own.

Started in Bryan/College Station, their craft beer business found its way to its’ new home in Brenham Texas and was christened the Brazos Valley Brewery. Lucky for them, there was already a building that had been set up by a previous craft brewery (though now defunct) that was just waiting for a new master Brewer to take over and once again start producing fine craft beer. Obviously, a match made in heaven commenced.

Brazos Valley Brewery, known affectionately as our Brenham Brewery, now produces some of the most delicious beer made in this part of Texas! Open most weekends, you can sit out on the patio in the biergarten and enjoy a fresh pulled mug of cold delicious craft beer.  Located just a mere  10 minutes from the ranch, you can return to the ranch to  settle into our outdoor  spa for a relaxing  soak after enjoying some  local brews.

What to choose:  they always  have these three permanent pulls plus a selection of rotating drafts to choose from:
1)Golden Ale: Their original brew, the Golden Ale achieves the perfect balance of Crystal hops and Vienna malt. Light, refreshing, sessionable offering that keeps you coming back for more.
2)Cause IPA:  Their IPA is bittered with Columbus hops for a strong resiny bite, then flavored with Centennial and Cascade hops for a floral aroma and citrus finish. More floral hops at flameout and dry hop with Cascade to push this experience over the edge.
3)Silt Brown Ale:  Paying homage to the mighty Brazos River, a malty body mixed with a hint of chocolate, slight caramel notes, and hop flavor as bold as the river it’s named after.

Current brews on rotating selection:

  1. 7 Spanish Angles
  2. Big Spoon Tres  Leches Stout
  3. Roots Radicals AIPA
  4. 13TH Can

Before or after enjoying a cold mug, meander into historic downtown Brenham which is just a block away. Here you will find a smorgasbord of boutiques, antique shops, art venues, fine restaurants and boatloads of charm!  Stop in at Home Sweet Farms and visit their Biergarten where you can enjoy even more delicious micro brews on tap of small production Texas breweries!

For history buffs, Downtown Brenham is on the historic record for its’ original downtown square and archeological architecture. Pick up a walking map from The Visitors Center in The Simon Theatre and enjoy a self guided tour of all the buildings, learning about their history, the history of Brenham and the amazing architecture of the landscape which now house modern restaurants, shops, and businesses.

Brenham is a treasure trove of history for history’s buffs with its relationship as the Birthplace of Texas and as the hub of the wheel for Texas history. Downtown Brenham is home to several museums that showcase times of the past and offer a glimpse of what life was like back in those early settlement days.

Of course, you are going to need a place to call home during your time enjoying our Brenham Brewery, downtown Brenham and all the other attractions that our part of Texas has to offer. The ranch is the perfect place to put your feet up, rest a spell, enjoy the outdoor spa, country life and good food. Each evening come home to a really comfortable bed, private rooms, beautiful relaxing countryside and rise in the morning to enjoy a homemade breakfast before beginning another day exploring and enjoying.
