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 and taproom 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. But if beer isn’t your thing, we have wine, cider, seltzers, and non-alcoholic options too, and the kiddos are welcome to run and play at “BVB Park.” Also, call us to book your next event: casual rehersal dinners, parties, reunions, corporate events or meetings for up to 100 people. Welcome to the family, ya’ll!
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.
Westwood cinema 6 is a small theater in Brenham, Texas. But don’t let our size fool you! We play all the current films our six screens can hold!
