Austin

Established in 1839, Austin is named for the founder of Anglo-American Texas, Stephen F. Austin, and is the capitol of Texas. Like most other cities, Austin usually had at least one brewery until the late 1870s, when beer from St. Louis and Milwaukee began to arrive in refrigerated rail cars. One last interest historical footnote: William Haas, one of Chicago's pioneer brewers, sold his Chicago brewery in 1839 and moved to Austin. Could he have opened a brewery here?

Kevin Brand developed a taste for craft beer working in Austin in the 90s. He moved to California and spent 10 years in another field until he realized he wanted to brew beer. He returned to Austin to open his brewery where he plans to use as much organic ingredients as possible.
