We like to drink good beer! We have an assumption that most people share this thought with us. We’re just a group of family and friends who love good beer, good music, and the people that they bring together. Following this simple passion, we’ve created a family business — an independent craft brewery located a block from historic Downtown Brenham. We brew what we love, name it after the songs that we love, and we’re confident that you’ll love it, too. Welcome to the family, ya’ll!
We are a small boutique winery producing classic varietals and unique blends. Our tasting room and vineyard are located on a hill that provides breathtaking views, encourages you to stop and rediscover the beauty that surrounds you daily here in Washington County, Texas. “Texas Wines from Texas Grapes.” Open Fri and Sun noon-5pm, Sat 11am-6pm, all other days by appointment only.
The Chappell Hill Historic District includes the restored Providence Baptist Church parsonage, the Museum displaying historical exhibits and the Swearingen folk art collection, the Rock Store, century-old churches, Masonic Cemetery, library and the oldest continually operating bank in America. Groups are invited for tours of the historic sites with advance reservation. If you are having a group event or wedding, Chappell Hill may be the place for you! Providence Church is a quaint location for a wedding ceremony – the church holds 130 people. The Museum is ideal for parties up to 120, and the Rock Store can seat 40 people for a more intimate gathering in historic downtown.
The Brenham Heritage Museum is a local history museum located in Downtown Brenham. Exhibits and collections reflect a focus on the history and culture of Washington County. Originally serving as the United States Post Office, this magnificent building, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, was eventually transformed into the museum you see today.
NOTE: The museum is currently closed for renovations.
