Back Pew Brewing makes its home in the hallowed halls of an old church building, but don’t let that fool you into thinking our brewery is conventional. We chart our own course and venture into the beer-brewing unknown. We’re inspired by the unconventional, the strange, and the original. We aren’t afraid to brew boldly, and we never confine ourselves to the straight and narrow. We’re fueled by a passion to create damn good craft beer.
BEERS OF THE MONTH
India Pale Ale, 6.4% ABV, 35 IBU
Tanuki is brewed on the hot side with equal parts Maris Otter and Pilsner malt to keep the beer from being too overbearing malty on the pallet, but to leave a solid foundation for the hops. All of those IBU’s are accumulated during a cold whirlpool of Sultana, Azacca, and Comet hops for a super fruity experience! We ferment it with a Hornindal Kveik yeast for a punchy pineapple type of flavor, then add a healthy dry hop (near saturation) for that extra aroma.
Festbier, 6.2% ABV, 22 IBU
Our festbier has been brewed specially to welcome Oktoberfest season! This straw-colored lager beer presents malt-forward and ready to be drank by the liter! It was brewed with Hallertau Blanc hops, which bring out a bright and grassy flavor on the pallet, reminiscent of Sauvignon Blanc. Pick some up at HEB, Spec’s, or Total Wine today. Prost!
Have your party at Back Pew! If you’re planning to have 10 or more people (including kiddos) please fill out our CONTACT FORM and we’ll get back to you to schedule, otherwise you may be charged a fee at the door.
Bobby Harl, PhD, MBA – Founder and Brewmaster
Bobby’s passion for brewing beer started in 2008 on a home-brew set, and only grew from there. While earning his PhD and MBA at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Bobby also worked with those who came to be his mentors, Steve Scoville and Michael Kwas, who started Little Harpeth Brewing Company. The experience gained at Little Harpeth helped Bobby develop a further appreciation for both the technical and artistic sides of brewing.
In 2014, Bobby returned home to Houston with a dream of crafting beers full of flavor, rich character, and building an awesome place for friends and family to enjoy them. Thus began Back Pew Brewing.
