There was talk around Galveston Island as far back as October about Devil and the Deep Brewery’s partners Eric Walker, Chris David, Landers Weakly, and art director Daniel Torres throwing open their doors to the public. As delays often happen, the opening had been pushed back, but today marks the grand opening of the brewery and its beer garden at 2425 Postoffice. Each day of this weekend’s opening will be celebrated with the unveiling of a new brew.
The taproom, with its interior design inspired by the deep blue sea, is set to pour out as many as 10 concoctions at a time from the Devil and the Deep’s roster. As it stands, the brewery is favoring the lighter side of lagers and ales, though some stouts and saisons are available: American Blonde, Brown, Pale, and Stout; Saison de Galveston, Farmhouse Table Beer, Amber, Westcoast IPA; Bavarian Hefeweizen and a Belgian Dubbel; with pilot batches of Golden and Dark Kettle Sour.
Judging by its current location on the Strand, interested parties can attend the grand opening party pretty easily from Downtown. The space will also be rolling out the recreational complements: pool tables, shuffleboard, and darts.
The brewery’s hours are Thursday and Friday from 3 p.m. to midnight; Saturday and Sunday from 12 p.m. to midnight. The grand opening celebration starts at 6 p.m. with no end time posted.
