The 8th Wonder Brewery is located just blocks away from downtown Houston and let me tell you, it’s pretty incredible! These guys are doing it right, capturing that Texas flavor that you must experience for yourself.
The new tasting room has all kinds of cool Houston memorabilia, including vintage seats from the Astrodome. The distinctive art on the labels along with the cool Houston-themed names for their great beer will bring back great memories for homegrown Houstonians!
Houston is rich in culture and history; this seems to be what the 8th Wonder Brewery is all about. Most nights, you’ll find their food truck, Eatsie Boys, here serving up good eats as well. From time to time, the brewery will throw block parties, feature live music and even Yoga classes!
Everyone at the 8th Wonder Brewery is super cool from top to bottom and that really adds to the experience. Not only are all the beers very good, but they are all quite original. I have my favorites, but I recommend you try them all and see for yourself. Craft beer in Texas is alive and in strive! And in Houston, we have lift off!

HOPSTON – TXIPA
Texas is BIG. And we think it deserves a BIG beer. Most people are familiar with India Pale Ales and West Coast IPAs, but let us welcome you to Hopston, TXIPA. This hoppy and malty brew is balanced and approachable; enjoyable year round, and perfectly suited for the hot Texas summer. You’re welcome and, yes, you may have another.
INTELLECTUALE – Witty Blonde
Somewhere between a Wit, a Blonde, and a Belgian Golden, Intellectuale is an easy-going and tasty beer that stimul8s the mind, the body, and the soul. This clever brew has a light, crisp body with a genius amount of wheat. Mild fruit esters; smartly hopped. On a hot humid day or chill night, Intellectuale is always the intelligent choice.
