We started Roughhouse Brewing in January 2019 with a drive to do meaningful work that brought us closer to our land, ourselves, and our community. For us, Roughhouse represents the playful and loving familial aspect of our lives coupled with the old, rustic qualities of home and our history. For you, we hope it’s a comfortable spot to meet and share a beer and connect with each other.
Located on our family’s 50-acre ranch in San Marcos, our family-owned brewery serves refreshing American farmhouse beer that complements the Texas backdrop—dry, crisp and refreshing. At Roughhouse, our yeast-centric ales undergo 100-percent fermentation in American White Oak foeders (large wooden barrels) using our house, mixed culture, which includes yeast harvested from the Pasternak Ranch. The brewery’s water is supplied by our on-site well tapping into the Cow Creek section of the Trinity aquifer—providing some of the highest quality water in Central Texas.
Thank you for taking the time to learn more about Roughhouse Brewing.
We look forward to hosting you at the ranch or sharing a beer around town! We are dog-friendly and welcome all well-behaved dogs on a leash in our outdoor space and patio.
