Southern Yankee Crafthouse At 1312 West Alabama St.


Recommended Posts



A North Houston brewpub has plans to take over the spot recently vacated by a beloved Montrose hot dog purveyor.

City of Houston permits show that Southern Yankee Beer Company has another business, called Southern Yankee Crafthouse, in the works at 1312 West Alabama. That’s the former location of Good Dog Montrose, which closed on November 22 due to the coronavirus pandemic. (Good Dog’s original location, at 903 Studewood Street, is still open.)

A rep for Southern Yankee confirmed the Montrose expansion when reached for comment by Eater, saying the Crafthouse would be related to, but different from, the original brewpub at 930 FM 1960. It’s unclear if that means the brewery’s popular pizzas will be available inside the Loop. The rep declined to give further details, citing uncertainty with Houston’s permitting approvals and the tenuous state of the restaurant industry thanks to the pandemic.

Southern Yankee Brew Pub was originally founded in 2018 by a group of homebrewers and Houston transplants, who began serving up beers like the Who’s Paul Pale Ale, Fuzzy Bastard Cream Ale and barrel-aged special editions. In the summer of 2019, the brewpub added a food truck, called SoYank Pizza, which quickly developed a following for its wood-fired pies, essential sandwiches and fire-roasted chicken wings.

The brewery staff has already began teasing its expansion on social media, with posts discussing their excitement about securing the Montrose location. No word yet on an opening date, but stay tuned for more details as they come in.
