Where to Find It
Want to see where the beer is made? Come by the production brewery (1331 W 2nd St, behind Randy's Ice House) on the Second Saturday of the month. $10 gets you a tour and two pours. The brewery tours happen as we reach critical mass (usually around 2:30 and 3:30) and the length varies based on questions but is generally 15-30 minutes.

Founder & CEO
A fifth generation Texan, Ian feels strongly that Texans should join together and support local businesses. Ian co-founded Texas Beer Company in 2015 after working for non-profit groups and political campaigns for 15 years. As an extension of that community organizing background, Texas Beer Company is proud to be a people-powered brewery that launched with a Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign. He is married to Co-Founder Amy Everhart and together they have two boys, Reed and Hayes.
Founder & Brewmaster
JD likes to say that being a brewer is really like being a glorified janitor - he spends most of his time cleaning. When he isn't cleaning, he's brewing our delicious beer along with Assistant Brewer Max. Together, they brewed our 2018 Great American Beer Festival gold medal winning Pecos Amber. JD loves brewing beer, drinking beer, and is known to visit breweries wherever he goes. He's also married to our Operations Director, Megan.
Founder & Operations Director
Megan joined the Texas Beer Co team as a staff member in late 2018 and has been cranking out invoices, setting up events at the tap room, filing our reports and occasionally delivering beer ever since. When she isn't behind her computer, Megan can be found operating our packaging line or slinging beer in the tap room. She's also married to our Brewmaster JD.
Max joined the Texas Beer Co team in 2016 as a brewer after working for years at a homebrew supply shop. Max is the mastermind behind many of our favorite seasonals including the Hoppy Clouds IPA and Strawberry Chocolate King Grackle Stout. When he isn't brewing, Max is running the canning line, filling kegs and barrels and rocking a sweet mustache.
jack of all trades
The real question is - what doesn't Rob do? He operates the canning machine, brews, builds little tables to hold the case trays. Since Rob joined the team, our whole outlook on life has changed. We couldn't do it without him.
