For this week’s #NeighborhoodSpotlight, join us as we meet with Dave Ohmer, general manager and brewer at Urban South Brewery HTX. Urban South has been a staple brewery in New Orleans since 2016 but has only been open in Houston since February. Their Houston taproom serves as a way for them to really get creative and adventurous with their beers and see how the public reacts.
The main inspiration behind Urban South Brewery came from when the founder visited Europe and tasted their beers. He realized that he had been missing beer of this quality when he was in South Louisiana and wanted to bring this kind of beer back to the United States. They aim to combine the heritage of European beer making with the brashness of new American styles. The Houston taproom really serves as an R&D facility where they really push the boundaries of American beer and see what turns out to be a hit.
