Our Beer Philosophy
Martin House Brewing Company strives to create beer that becomes an extension of the lifestyles of its consumers. Our beers range from bold and burly to bright and refreshing and are meant to be paired with life’s adventures. The Martin House value of “Unbound by Tradition” highlights the belief that our beers will not be stymied by existing categorical guidelines. Rather, our beers find a place to truly shine and be unique outside-of and in-between those traditional categories. Thanks so much to our friends at 9 Digit Productions for the amazing artwork.
The Imperial Texan
This is a heavy-duty 8% abv red ale with a profusion of hop flavor and aroma. This beer is as big and proud as Texas. Because we add almost two pounds of American hops per barrel very late in the beer making process, The Imperial Texan is able to retain a wondrously piney and resinous hop character that perfectly balances its smooth but strong and dry malt backbone. This beer has a sticky presence that puts each sip perfectly on the tongue.
The Imperial Texan was brewed to enjoy around a fire with close friends while reminiscing over the day’s killer mountain bike ride.
Day Break – 4 Grain Breakfast Beer
An inviting, 5% abv ale that we call a 4-grain breakfast beer. It was modeled after a bowl of cereal. It’s made with barley, wheat, oats and rye, and is finished with honey. The hop character in this beer is subtle and lends hints of black currant and mint. We ferment this beer very dry and add milk sugar to create a delicate and unique sweetness. The large quantities of honey and specialty grains enable this low-alcohol refresher to provide a unique taste that’s like a sunrise in your mouth.
Daybreak is designed to be enjoyed responsibly throughout the entire day. Bring it with you on the disc golf course or for a Sunday afternoon hike.
River House Saison
The River House Saison is a pale colored and sessionable beer at about 5% abv. We created this beer to satisfy the thirst of both aficionados and novices. The River House Saison is something refreshing and easy drinking, but with an exciting and fascinating flavor. A special yeast blend created by Martin House gives this beer hints of pepper and earthiness. Plenty of flavor and aroma hops yield a floral, spicy, and citrusy essence.
Throw a few in your cooler, put your cooler in a kayak, and join a few of your closest friends. You’ve got the making of weekend trip you won’t soon forget.
There Will Be Stout – The Original Pretzel Stout
That’s right, The Original Pretzel Stout. This 6.5% abv stout is as black as West Texas Intermediate (but infinitely more edible and environmentally friendly) and is brewed with over six pounds of crushed pretzels per barrel. Guess what? There’s no style guideline for this one. The salty fingerprint of the pretzels works with the sweet and roasty flavors of the chocolate malted & roasted barley to give this beer a flavor that is much greater than the sum of its parts.
There Will Be Stout on a cool spring Texas evening after a long day of climbing at Enchanted Rock, you deserve it.
