Eureka Heights Brew Co. appears to be happening. There's a website up according to this tweet with some info:

 

There's a website for new Houston brewery Eureka Heights Brew Co. http://eurekaheights.com 

@beernerds @theheightslife



 

From the website:

 

 

Eureka Heights Brewing Company was forged in the dark depths of the Eureka Heights fault line and the hellfire of Houston summer. After a tireless search, we’ve found ourselves an ugly old warehouse to call home.

 

First, we’re going to powerwash the hell out of this warehouse. Then we’re gonna brew some kickass beer – interesting, approachable beers that are crisp, flavorful and (mostly) low alcohol. Oh, and stouts. Lots of them. (Like, more than one.)

 

So buckle up and get your face holes ready, because the space train is pulling into town.

So looks like a former StA brewer is working this! https://twitter.com/TonySwank including comments like:

Also, many references to jorts in tweets with StA, which would explain the legal name!

Looks like you're right. The founder of Eureka Heights Brew Co. is a former Saint Arnold Brewing Company brewer, Casey Motes.


 

Found this tweet on Twitter:

It's official, we're having a brewery! Due date sometime later this year. Follow us! @EurekaHeights




From Eureka Heights Brew Co. Facebook yesterday:

Oh, hello! We’re Eureka Heights Brewing Company. Since we’ve gotten to know each other so well in the last few seconds, you can call us Eureka Heights Brew Co. After several months we have finally escaped the deepest, darkest bowels of the permitting office and just wanted to pop our heads out to see what’s up. We didn’t see our shadow, so either we’re vampires or we have six more weeks of lagering. Anyway, we’re super pumped to join the amazing craft beer scene in Houston.

From Swamplot:


 

Eureka Heights Brewing Company employees will get to work on beer as soon as they’re done “powerwashing the hell out of this warehouse” — that 22,000-sq.-ft. one formerly occupied by Jake’s Finer Foods on W. 18th St., half a block west of N. Durham Dr. (and even closer to the border of the Height’s historically (nominally) dry zone.) The brewery’s webpage also proudly touts its proximity to the trace of the Eureka Heights Fault, which crosses White Oak Bayou about where Ella Blvd. does (just a few blocks to the west of the newly leased space).

 

Other beer endeavors currently fermenting in and around the Greater Heights area include Platypus Brewpub (preparing to slip in behind the Tacodeli and upscale barbershop on their way to Washington Ave), Holler Brewing Company (planned for the Artists Alley section of the Sawyer Yards Development), Allen’s Landing Brewing Company (3540 Oak Forest Dr., a few blocks west of Petrol Station), and the seemingly-yet-unmoored Great Heights Brewing Company, which claims a numberless address on Heights Blvd. on its Facebook page.

***

As of October 2015 (according to the HBJ), Texas claimed some 117 craft breweries, up from 60 in 2011, as new laws around distribution have made it easier to start a beer operation from scratch — the Greater Houston Area is now home to more than 15 and counting.

That Facebook post is gold and I'll support them based off their dry snarky humor alone. Hope the beer is good!

Also, for someone with more effort than I currently have, how many breweries does this make for Htown?

I hope the beer is good. Rumaging through Facebook and Twitter, there are lots of people who've tried the beer and say it's good. The owner is known in the Houston craft beer community and was a brewer for Saint Arnold Brewing Company. The Heights is becoming a local beer mecca.

There isn't any information about this place so the point of the thread is to post what you know. At the time no one here knew who was involved and then someone wrote that Casey is involved or it's his. Not intentionally leaving one out, people who aren't in the know or have insider knowledge don't know anything about this place other than the bread crumbs that's been put out there.

Video of the brewery from Facebook:


Need to beef up our floors for the new tank farm. Moving the old concrete blocks like pancakes. Large, heavy, gravelly pancakes.

I saw a many an egg go through that warehouse in my youth...
 

Can't wait until someone gets the idea to lump Timbergrove in as a part of the Heights one of these days. The blue hair is gonna fly.
 

What's next? After Booker T. Washington's new campus gets completed, and the surroundings get "hip", are we suddenly going to be face to face with StudeHeights? Independence Heights of Greater Heights? North Sunset Heights? Oh, how about NoDo, so Studewood can be as with it as East End is these days.

From Houston Business Journal last month:

 

Eureka Heights Brew Co., one of the latest breweries to launch into Houston's budding beer scene, is working to build out its 20,000-square-foot brewery and open by August, co-founders Casey Motes and Rob Eichenlaub told the Houston Business Journal.
 

The brewery's been under construction since January and will be completed in two phases. Phase I of the buildout will focus on the operations of the brewery; i.e. brewing beer, kegging the beer and having an on-tap presence in Houston's bar scene. That's expected to wrap up by August. Phase II will be more consumer-oriented and will include the taproom and patio.
 

Among Houston's well-known beer bars, such as The Hay Merchant and Flying Saucer, Eichenlaub said the brewers hope to have a presence in bars throughout the greater Houston area, even though they will be self-distributing kegs for the foreseeable future. Bars in Sugar Land, west Houston and Clear Lake weren't ruled out. Houston's bigger beer bars, such as The Ginger Man, Petrol Station, Cottonwood and D&T Drive In are also on the brewer's horizon, Eichenlaub said.
 

And in terms of geography, Motes and Eichenlaub said their primary goal was to find a piece of property in the inner Loop. EaDo housed some alluring properties for brewers, they said, based on the submarket's warehouse-heavy makeup. An advantage of their current Heights digs is the massive industrial cooler it came equipped with, as the warehouse used to be home to Houston-based Jake’s Finer Foods. Jake's vacated the property in early 2010, but that cooling system saved Eureka Brew Co. tens of thousands of dollars, if not more than $100,000, Motes said.
