Day drink?

Which Breweries Are Opening Their Taprooms?

Starting Friday, you'll be able to drink pints outside at some breweries in the area.

Urban South HTX will open its patio only starting this weekend.

We're now in phase 2 of Gov. Greg Abbott's plan to re-open Texas during the COVID-19 pandemic, which means bars, wine tasting rooms, and breweries can now host people again. We've compiled a list of Houston-area breweries for you to find out just what they're doing.

If a brewery is opening its taproom, it will do so Friday, unless otherwise noted.

Remember: If you're dining or drinking out in public, follow social distancing guidelines (at least six feet between you and anyone else), wash hands often and thoroughly, and consider wearing a face mask.
