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
Doppelbock, 10% ABV, 20 IBU, 100% Awesome
This is a big beer. It’s made with primarily pilsner malt with some Vienna thrown in. We give this beer a long decoction to bring out some amazing caramel flavors without being too sweet. Me Beer is meant to showcase a symphony of what the malt and fermentation can do. As a lager, it is fermented cold, getting it’s ABV to 10%. The result is a beautiful clear, dark hay colored lager that our brewer decided to share with you as piece of himself. We’ll be canning this one, so look for it at your favorite place to buy beer starting mid-April!
Belgian Golden Strong, 9% ABV, 20 IBU
MAs one of our three beers dedicated to the Wheel of Time Series, we felt that Rand needed to exalt royalty. Thus, we chose a Belgian golden strong as our 5th Anniversary beer. We fermented it in fresh toasted American oak barrels for a fluffier marshmallow flavor to help mellow out some of the Belgian notes. You’ll also get some clove on the nose and pallet from the yeast, along with some exciting effervescence from bottle-conditioning! This beer is fit for royalty and will be sold only in 750 ml bottles from our taproom with pick up starting April 3rd at our Anniversary party. CLICK HERE to order!
Have your party at Back Pew! If you’re planning to have 10 or more people (including kiddos) please fill our 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.
