The Lone Pint Brewery
Welcome to our website! We've been brewing beers for quite sometime now but we're just getting started with our website. So check back often as we'll be adding more content all of the time.
The Lone Pint Brewery is a grassroots insurrection with the true beer lover in mind. We are dedicated to creating distinctive local Texas ales that are tasty, hoppy, and quaffable.
We are very proud to be a part of the burgeoning Texas craft beer scene.
Support your local Brewery!
Update, May 18th:
Tornado Shark Strong Ale is shipping tomorrow. Go quaff a pint!
On Tuesday the 21st we are having another Tour de Lone Pint.
Update, May 12th:
We will be having our second brewery tour this weekend, May 18th, from noon to 3pm.
Tornado Shark, our American Strong Ale, will be ready for kegging come Friday. Look for it in your favorite watering hole soon after (or at the tour on Saturday).
Update, April 24th:
Thanks to everyone that made it out to Magnolia for our first brewery tour. It was a great time.
Many thanks Ronnie! We owe you a beer, or three.
Update, April 15th:
Our new tap wall is here just in time for the tour on Saturday. Thanks Mark!
Update, April 11th:
Yes, our first tour is on 4/20. Everyone gets a tasters cup and three tokens. We will also have proper pint glasses for sale ($5) which we will fill using the same tokens.
This Tuesday, April 16th, we are having
a Lone Pint Pub
Crawl Ride. It begins at 6pm at Cottonwood
in the Heights: 3422 N Shepherd Dr. 2nd Stop at Liberty Station: 2101
Washington Ave. 3rd Stop at Moon Tower Inn: 3004 Canal St. Then back to
Cottonwood. We'll give out cards and put a sticker on for each location
visited. Those that completed all stops will get a Lone Pint pint glass.
Update, April 4th:
We will have our first official tour on Saturday, April 20th, between noon and 3pm! Please come take a tour and quaff a few pints of ale with us.
Jabberwocky IIPA and Pioneer Yellow Rose are out and about. Very tasty.
On May 4th we will be out at the Katy Wild West Brew Fest. Well worth the trip if you dig craft beer.
Update, March 6th:
A lot is going on...let's start from the top.
On Friday we brewed our first batch of Lone Pint Pioneer. This beer will be a one-off, never brewed before, unique batch named after a different Texas hero each time; in this case Yellow Rose. The Pioneer Yellow Rose is a single malt, single hop brew, using a brand new hop named Mosaic. It is currently fermenting and will be available in a few weeks.
We also dry hopped our Imperial IPA: Jabberwocky. Here is photo showing how much hops we use to dry hop our IIPA. Yes, that is a 44 gallon Brute bin nearly filled to the top.
On Saturday we participated in the Brew-off held at The Refinery. Nine Texas breweries were in attendance and we tied for third place! Not bad considering we have only been in business for three months.
Update, February 26th:
This Saturday (March 2nd) we will be participating in our first beer competition. It will take place at The Refinery from noon to night, featuring only Texas breweries. Stop by for some tasty Texas brew!
Update, February 12th:
Thank you to everyone who came out to the Magnolia Marti Gras Festival on Saturday. It was a good time...and we managed to give away quite a bit of beer!
Don't mind the unicorn, he cleans our brewing kettle.
Update, February 1st:
We recently had an article written about us in the Examiner (Thanks Bryan!). Click HERE to read it.
Update, January 24th:
We are finally on tap in Magnolia! GenuWine Tasting Room and The Golden Retriever is proudly serving our beer. Whole Foods in Bellaire is now selling growlers of Lone Pint as well. Check out the "On Tap" section for tap updates.
The brewers night at Outlaw Dave's was great time; thanks to everyone who came out!
Click HERE to listen to our radio interview with Outlaw Dave. I edited it with a nice montage of photos outlining the past year...enjoy.
Update, January 17th:
Tomorrow, January 18th, we will be at Outlaw Dave's Worldwide Headquarters (6502 Washington Ave 77007) from 5-7pm doing a meet the brewers night. Our IPA and Brown Ale will be pouring. Come hangout and grab a pint!
Update, January 14th:
Our "On Tap" list has been updated. Pints are currently being poured at plenty of great beer joints in Houston and we are just beginning to tap (pun intended) into the Dallas/San Antonio/Austin markets. Due to some of the bars rotating their taps, we may come and go.
Apologies are in order for the local Magnolians, as we have not secured any taps locally. It is our goal to rectify this shortly.
Update, December 18th:
We delivered the first kegs of our English Brown Ale: Gentleman's Relish. The "On Tap" list has also been updated as we are beginning to deliciously pour onto the Houston beer scene!
Thank you to everyone who has stopped by the brewery to give their support. Please continue to do so!
We promise to start having an official brewery tour date soon, along with a grand opening party. Stay tuned.
Update, December 3rd:
We finally shipped our first kegs on Friday, November 30th! It is our IPA: 667 Neighbor of the Beast. We will maintain a list of beer bars that pour our pints on the "On Tap" page.
Go out and grab a pint!
Update, November 18th:
Based on our October 15th update, all has not gone as planned (and rarely does when dealing with government agencies).
However, we are approximately one week away from sending our first keg to market; patiently awaiting TABC's blessing for our final label approval.
It turns out that the first beer to hit the bars will be our IPA: 667 Neighbor of the Beast, followed by our Brown Ale: Gentleman's Relish. We will post which bars will offer it once it happens.
Some people will do anything for a Lone Pint!
Update, October 15th:
Three batches down. We currently have Gentleman's Relish, our Northern English Brown Ale, in the brite tank, with a third batch of Old Slapper fermenting.
We nearly have the new equipment figured out with regard to strike temps, flow rates, etc. Contrary to what one may think, a stuck mash makes for a long, frustrating day; not recommend.
If all goes as planned, look for Lone Pint in Houston beer bars in approximately three weeks.
Update, September 23rd:
We brewed our first batch of beer yesterday! It is an English Bitter named Old Slapper and is currently in the fermenter bubbling away.
Overall it was a good day. However, we do have a few logistical things to work out as our use of whole hops makes cleanup a bit tricky...
Below are a few images taken throughout the day. Enjoy!
Update, August 27th:
The Brewing Equipment has arrived! We are getting the water, power, and steam plumbed.
What a beautiful sight.
Don't worry Doyle, I have it!
No yelling damn it!
Installing the Hot Liquor Tank.
Cold Liquor Tank, Fermenters, and Brite Tank
