Houston’s beer scene has grown rapidly in recent years, and a brand new brewery has plans to keep that trend rolling when it makes its Clutch City debut.

Just a few doors down from the now-shuttered Oxheart, 160 Foot Beerworks will soon open its doors at 1310 Nance. The fledgling suds purveyor describes itself as a “nanobrewery” that will create small batches of various beers in house. When the brewery opens its doors, only four brews will be on offer.

According to its Twitter account, 160 Foot Beerworks has been in the works since at least May 2016. Since then, the brewery has been building the hype by serving beer at events around Houston, including the Houston Latino Film Festival. Details on the brewery’s beers are scarce, but drinkers will likely find a hefeweizen and Southern Grace, the brown ale that 160 Foot Beerworks has been testing on local drinkers.

The brewery will make its official debut with a grand opening celebration on April 1. The festivities kick off at 10 a.m. with plenty of beer and food trucks, which means that even the biggest boozehounds will need to prepare for a long day of drinking.
