Cottonwood Creek Brewery & Smokehouse - Hutto
Point City Brewing Co. - Houston
Toasty Bros. - Denton
Village Creek Brewing Co. - Rendon
Weber Brewing - Victoria

More on the two projects hailing from North Texas...

Toasty Bros., Denton

  • Founded by Brian "Toast" Tiensvold, Toasty Bros. has been active in North Texas since debuting its first commercial beer in March 2019. From that point on, the company's beers have been produced as part of an alternating proprietorship agreement with Hop & Sting Brewing Co. of Grapevine.

    A permanent location is on the horizon, though, as construction is currently underway on an existing 1200 square foot space at 104 N. Bell Ave. in Denton. Pop-up events are a regular occurrence on site, as Toasty Bros. continues to raise funds as it works towards opening.

Village Creek Brewing Co., Rendon

  • Art and Sunny Anderson began working to bring Village Creek Brewing Co. to fruition in early 2019. They first appeared on the local radar in April of that year after participating in LUCKapolooza V at LUCK in Trinity Groves.

    By early 2020, they had secured a 4.7-acre site at 6670 Levy County Line Rd. in Rendon, where they've been building a brewery from the ground up ever since.
