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.

Description: An inviting, 5% abv ale that we call a 4-grain breakfast beer. It was modeled after a bowl of cereal.

Description: That’s right, The Original Pretzel Stout. This 6.5% abv stout is as black as West Texas Intermediate and is brewed with over six pounds of crushed sourdough pretzels per barrel.

Adventure Pairing: There Will Be Stout on a cool spring Texas evening after a long day of...read more
Description: This is a heavy-duty 9% 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. Adventure Pairing: The Imperial Texan was brewed to enjoy around a fire with close...read more

Description: Why wait until October? It’s name is close to the more familiar October beers you’ve heard of, but it doesn’t have much more in common. The Martin House fall seasonal is brewed to 6% abv with oats, caramel malts, and cherry wood smoked malts.
