About Frost Town

At Frost Town Brewing, our mission is to serve the local community by crafting unforgettable experiences, refreshing beer, and a welcoming space for all. We believe craft beer is a unifying force for the community, bringing us all to the same table. Our location in the historic Frost Town neighborhood places us at the origins of Houston beer, just down the street from the first breweries in the history of the city. Rather than chasing the trends of other places, we develop brews by exploring what it means to be truly local beer here in the heart of where it all began. Drinking Frost Town beer is a celebration of Houstonians, past and present. It’s drinkable craft lagers and ales meant to be shared with friends. Consider our taproom a communal backyard or a neighborhood icehouse — a gathering place for all beer lovers of Houston.
