Unknown or unconfirmed or non- Producing

If you have any information regarding these breweries, or others that are not listed, please contact me.

Fremont
The list of breweries fund in American Breweries II and The Encyclopedia of Texas Breweries lists a non-producing brewery in Fremont, Texas.

Jefferson
Kathryn Turner Carter wrote, in her book on Texas stagecoach inns, "Once the state's largest city and inland port, Jefferson today is a living page of Texas history. Another treat those in Jefferson enjoyed were drinks cooled with artificial ice. Between 1869 and 1874, the first artificial ice made in Texas was manufactured in Jefferson; consequently, Jefferson was also the first town in Texas to have a beer manfacturing company." (Page 145.) Michael Hennech has said that the Federal records of breweries before 1874 were incomplete.

Twin Sisters
Twin Sisters is on the Little Blanco River, seven miles south of Blanco in southernmost Blanco County. It was named for a pair of prominent nearby hills, which form a landmark visible for miles around. By the late 1850s Twin Sisters had become the center of German settlement in what is now Blanco County. By 1890 Twin Sisters had three general merchandise stores, a gristmill, and a cotton gin. Max Krueger owned the mill, the gin, and one of the stores. He built a dance hall and a bowling alley, for which he imported beer from St. Louis. When the transportation costs became too high, he opened a small brewery nearby but failed to produce any beer because the brewery lacked cooling facilities. After a series of drunken brawls and shoot-outs at the dance pavilion, however, Krueger discontinued operation of his entertainment ventures.
