Brewery Spotlight

Baa Baa Brewhouse

If you’re looking for some amazing British ales, then this is definitely the place to be. Baa Baa Brewhouse has been in the business since April 2016, and people are still going crazy over their interesting suds. This nanobrewery is out of Houston in the Brookshire area. Despite the travel distance, the small-batch brewery is almost always packed with customers having a ball. Today, it is billed as one of the smallest and most-cherished breweries in the greater Houston area that beer fans love revisiting.

Does the name bring back memories of your childhood days? Fond memories of listening to nursery rhymes back in the day is exactly where the husband-wife duo, Marcus and Kinga, drew inspiration from while naming their family-style brewery. Even their tap handles are one of a kind, made of kids blocks, equally reminiscent of our childhood days.

Co-founder and brew master Marcus, the once geologist now age-old home-brewer (in Colorado), knows his beer. He says that science, geology, and travel have heavily influenced his brewing process. On the other hand, his wife, Kinga, having studied law, helps him run the place and is a strong partner. To Marcus, beer making is an iterative process, which only means that they constantly experiment and come up with better tasting suds for their customers more than often.

The place is more than just mind-blowing beer. This warehouse-styled brewery has a basic setup in terms of sitting arrangement with a laid-back “at-home” ambiance. Beer, conversations, and watching children play at the backside – can there be a better start to your weekend?

Baa Baa Kolsch, Ennie NEIPA, and their Father Goose IPA are extremely famous among consumers, and as for the favorites among neighbors, the balanced and light Nottingham Donkey stands out.
