A Brew Renewed
Frost Town Brewing was born from an idea to brew uniquely Texan beer inspired by the people. The concept underwent many changes over the years, but we always stayed true to the mission of our founders: serving refreshing, sessionable beer for our local community. The plan started back in 2013 with the visionary, Paul (while drinking an IPA, probably).
Delays, a new location, a new name all followed. Finally, with a team assembled in 2018, the brewery began anew, embracing the reverence of Texas brewing history and developing recipes from local inspiration. John, Kyle, and Hannah took the reins with a passion for independent craft beer and ambitions for what the Houston brewing scene could become.
Once we learned of the beer history of the bygone Frost Town neighborhood, we knew the name was a perfect fit. After all, who doesn’t want to head to Frost Town during a hot Texas day? After many different brews, brewery visits, and discussions with fellow beer lovers of Texas, we are ready to serve y’all.
Frost Town is considered one of the first neighborhoods in the city of Houston.
Early residents settled along the banks of Buffalo Bayou on lots of land purchased by the Frost family from the Allen Brothers. Frost Town emerged as a flourishing immigrant community, with periods of German and Mexican influence in the neighborhood.
Census records indicate that Frost Town was home to one of the earliest commercial breweries in Houston, just across Jackson Street from our location. Other prominent breweries in early downtown Houston include Magnolia Brewery and Gabel’s Brewery. Much of Frost Town has since been paved over by highways, but there’s a living history underneath the city. For more information on the history of Frost Town or the archeological digs of the area, visit our friends at the Houston Archeological Society.
Craft beer brings people together, and we want everyone to feel welcomed to share a pint among friends in our community. We’re here to offer a safe space and a smiling face. After all, this beer is for y’all!
Awareness of our impact is built into our values. We acknowledge that the process of brewing and serving beer affects our community and our planet. As we grow, we will be continuously focused on becoming more aware and more environmentally friendly. Here are some steps we are taking right now to reduce our impact on the environment:
Delivery of spent grain and yeast to a local cattle ranch to be used for feed
Native landscaping to promote a healthy local ecosystem
Using local suppliers where we can
Limiting plastic products in packaging, service, and operation
