A new brewpub is headed to Houston’s Near Northside in late 2019, promising “a patio with killer views.” That’s what Local Group Brewing co-founder Michael Steeves said in a press release announcing the news that this brewery with on-site kitchen and an air-conditioned taproom is moving into 1504 Chapman Street in Hardy Yards.

Steeves, Todd Donewar, and head brewer James “Huggy Bear” Wolfe are behind Local Group Brewing, which will feature more than 20 taps, eight of which will be connected directly to ten-barrel serving tanks for beer freshness.

The 7,500-square-foot space is in the works from Method Architecture and contractor GSD Construction, with a plan to gut the space, add that patio along with windows and garage doors, and dress the brewpub up with and white oak and steel furniture. The hunt is on right now for an executive chef for the upcoming pet and family-friendly hangout.
