Brewpub to be Houston area’s 53rd craft brewery
Spring, TX, August 7, 2018 – Fortress BeerWorks is the latest addition to Houston’s rapidly growing beer scene. The family-friendly craft brewery plans to open this fall in a 6,620-sq.-ft. space located at 2606 Spring Cypress Road in Spring, Texas. Fortress BeerWorks will be operating with a brewpub license—meaning it has the ability to sell beer on-premise and to-go—and will be the greater Houston area’s 53rd brewery (per Houston Beer Guide’s Houston Breweries & Brewpubs Map).
“As huge craft beer fans ourselves, we’re beyond excited to become a part of Houston’s quickly expanding craft beer scene, and eager to help slake the thirsts of the beer drinkers of our great city,” said head brewer and co-owner Dion Billard. “It’s an invigorating time for craft beer in the greater Houston area. We look toward our neighbors to the west at Lone Pint in Magnolia, to the north at B52 Brewing, Copperhead and Southern Star in Conroe, and to the south at 11 Below as inspiration, and can’t wait to make beer that will further cement north Houston’s reputation as a can’t-miss craft beer destination.”
Mr. Billard says Fortress BeerWorks expects to launch with a Double India Pale Ale, Blonde Ale, Witbier and the brewery’s signature Smash IPA as they open their doors with seasonals and special releases throughout the year. More good news for beer lovers is that Fortress BeerWorks will offer Crowlers of their beer to go—the Crowler having supplanted the Growlers as the preferred to-go vehicle of choice for many beer drinkers—and may also enter the 16-ounce can sale arena down the line as well.
Fortress BeerWorks has plans to send product out to retail shelves as well, though expects to spend much of its focus on providing the best possible experience for its patrons at its taproom. The brewery expects to be open Thursday through Sunday at the outset, with expanded hours an eventual possibility. Additionally, Fortress BeerWorks will partner with local food trucks to ensure there is always a food option for taproom visitors.
Chris Caudill of NAI Partners, Houston’s 5th-largest commercial real estate firm, represented Fortress BeerWorks in the lease transaction for the space. Lee and Associates’ Thomas Leger and Chase Cribbs represented landlords Blake Vincent and Richard Werner in the transaction.
