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
Italian Pilsner, 4.8% ABV, 25 IBU
In celebration of the new Sopranos movie coming out, we decided to pay homage to the awesome series with this Italian Pilsner. To brew Gabagool, we started with Eraclea malt from Germany and introduced barley from the Adratic Coast in Italy for a bit more protein development. We then use one decoction for some palate sweetness, but keep the flavor profile sharp with Saaz and Hallertau Mittelfruh hops. After fermentation is complete, it gets hit with more hops for a pop of that almost spicy aspect you expect from continental European hops. This brew was kept in the family with the awesome artwork being created by our own sales guy, Matt! Saluti y’all! Just remember: we’re in waste management.
Double IPA, 8.5% ABV, 110 IBU
For this big West Coast double IPA we start by bittering with Chinook/CTZ/Simcoe, and then finish it off hot side with Cascade/Centennial/Citra. After fermenting with a classic west coast yeast, we give it a huge dry hop (single but BIG), for a poppy aroma of danky citrus. Tastes and aroma of past DIPA brewing techniques, 30 Pieces will not disappoint!
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.
