Everything’s bigger in Texas, or so the saying goes. One thing not so big is the craft brewing industry, but this is changing quickly as more and more small businesses apply for brewing licenses. One brewery in the making is located just east of Houston and its owners have decided to incorporate the size of the Lone Star State into its name. The company is Texas Big Beer Brewery and it is slowly progressing toward its ultimate, full- fledged brewery status. Here are a few facts known at this time:
Brewery Name: Texas Big Beer Brewery
Brewery Address: 400 County Road 3136, Buna, Texas
Legal Status: Federally approved to brew beer by the TTB
Owners:John and Tammy McKissack
Beer Product Focus:High alcohol beer
Texas Big Beer Brewery is a different type of brewing operation. Originally, the name was going to be “Republic of Texas Brewery”, but trademark conflicts forced a change in name. Since the state of Texas is known for its large size and since the beers planned for production are even bigger, the decision was made to name the budding brewery Texas Big Beer Brewery.
So why, exactly, does Texas Big Beer Brewery consider itself big? Well, according to official sources, Texas Big Beer Brewery is going to specialize in brewing stronger than average beer. We aren’t talking just a couple of percentage points stronger than average. No, Texas Big Beer Brewery wants to brew full- bodied, tantalizing, robust beer more in line with the strength of barleywine and other traditionally strong ale styles. And, in keeping with the “big” theme, Texas Big Beer Brewery plans to sell its beer products in 22 oz. bomber bottles as well as in kegs.
No official names have been declared for Texas Big Beer Brewery’s product line yet, but given the company philosophy, it should be interesting to see what creative names the company comes up with. The proposed names are likely already assigned, but Texas Big Beer Brewery is waiting for trademark approval before releasing the names to the public.
Texas Big Beer Brewery has been an idea in progress for more than a year, but now that the operation has government approval to brew beer, it should be only a matter of time before the company is up and running full time. The brewery is located about two hours east of Houston, close to Beaumont and near the Louisiana border. In due time, it could easily become one of the renown breweries in the Lone Star State.
