From Swamplot:

The former North Shepherd Dr. garage of Southern Truck Pros, an auto shop that specializes in diesel trucks, appears to be headed for a second career — as a brewery. The Facebook page for a new company called Astral Brewing, showing off the kick-the-can logo portrayed here, lists 4818 N. Shepherd Dr. as its address — with a projected landing in 2018.

And from Facebook:

Excited to announce that biochemistry PhD and brewing whiz-kid Alex McDonald and I (Jose Ceja ) will be launching Astral Brewing in 2018 in Houston. Equipment is on the way, and we're finalizing the terms of a lease on a warehouse a little north of Garden Oaks.

More on Astral Brewing's renovation of the warehouse in Independence Heights at 4818 N Shepherd:

 

We've never been so excited by the sight of an empty warehouse. This 9000 sq ft+ beast will be Astral's new home.
 

After looking at dozens and dozens of properties, we settled on this spot because the of the location (just north of Garden Oaks) and the possibilities the building offers. Expect a large patio and air-conditioned taproom. Although we won't open until the seasons change a few times, we'll be providing updates on our progress and, more importantly, samples of test batches soon!

Am I the only one for whom mention of N. Shepherd as being in Independence Heights will always be more than a little odd? I get that Shepherd is designated as the western boundary of the Independence Heights super neighborhood, but the actual historical neighborhood itself ends at Yale. Guess this is destined to be one of those arguments like the past ones regarding the historical vs. modern boundaries of the Houston Heights.

Can I throw my two cents in from the sprawling beauty that is Acres Home, mkultra?

 

Having grown up in the Sunset Heights, Yale was always considered the split between Garden Oaks on the west side and Studewood on the east. I still call it Studewood as that's what we grew up knowing it as. Independence Heights and Studewood are the same thing, as oldtimers like you and I already know. However, this only held true from the North Loop to the Burlington Northern Railroad. North of 38th where all the warehouses are, Studewood sprawls across both sides of Yale and that continues north of Crosstimbers. That encompasses Barkwood, Janisch, Martin, Victoria, Thornton, etc. etc. West of Shepherd is Shepherd Park Plaza and Candlelight Forest, at that portion of the old Spur 261. From Crosstimbers to Tidwell, the split is also Shepherd, with Acres Home on the west side, Independence Heights on the east. North of Tidwell, it gets even better. Acres Home (and Highland Village, btw) is on the west side of North Shepherd, Suburban Terrace, Wildrose Gardens, and Parkway are on the east. That is, until you get to Parker Rd. North of Parker, Acres Home cuts across Shepherd now and is considered as such until the 45 service road. I thought it was odd that the Acres Home Dialysis Center opened up at Rittenhouse & Stuebner Airline a few years back. Why would you name it Acres Home? Come to find out, it IS now considered to reside in Acres Home. I never knew...

I sit corrected. As a great sage put it:
