Pedernales Brewing in Fredericksburg has a 7th generation Texan at the helm in the form of Lee Hereford. A Fredericksburg resident since 1985, he has several years’ success in the wine industry, selling fine product throughout Texas, Louisiana, and Arkansas, eventually retiring from that industry to establish the brewery in 2009. Together with his brewmaster, Peter McFarlane (with a Bachelor of Science and decades of experience in the beer and wine industries), and Steve Honea, Managing Member (also a native Texas, with a BBA degree in Business Management), the trio make hops and barley sing and welcome visitors to their place of business to try some truly award-winning product.

Guadalupe Brewing in New Braunfels began their planning process in 2009, then its owners successfully graduated from the Siebel Institute in brewing science, followed-up by hands-on training in Colorado. They opened their doors in 2012 and successfully distribute throughout Texas from their facility here in the Texas Hill Country. They take great pride in being a small craft brewery and put their heart into their product, coordinating unique, award-winning beers such as Texas Honey Ale, Gruene Anole India Red Ale, and even Pumpkin Style Texas Honey Ale to name just a few!
