The largest craft beer brewery in New Orleans picked Houston for its first foray out of Louisiana. Urban South Brewery plans to open up a Houston brewery this fall, bringing a 14,000-square-foot location to 1201 Oliver Street in Houston’s Sawyer Yards district. The Houston brewery will include a 10-barrel brewhouse and canning line, along with a public taproom with a large patio and beer garden.

“Houston was an easy choice for our first satellite brewery. The connections between the city and New Orleans run deep, and we love that their craft beer culture is forward-thinking, innovative and rapidly growing,” founder Jacob Landry said in a press release. “We’re excited to be a part of this creative community, sharing the grassroots gospel of good beer in the South.”

Right now, Urban South Brewery’s known for brews like Holy Roller IPA and a lager called Paradise Park, but the Sawyer Yards will create Houston-specific beers too.
