While visiting Galveston, you might be surprised to find out that the cold beer you are drinking at your beachfront BBQ was brewed right here in Galveston!
The island’s breweries and distilleries play a large role in making it a wonderful place to get away for the weekend. While visiting one of the local breweries or distilleries, you can take a guided tour, grab some tasty food, and if your timing is right, listen to some live music.

One of the best local breweries in the area, Galveston Island Brewing is a must for beer lovers. Their unique flavors, including Tiki Wheat, perfectly complements the Galveston experience and is best paired with a night out listening to live music or taking in the sunset.
You will be hard-pressed to find a brewery that has a better view of the Gulf than Beerfoot Brewery. What makes this local brew house unique, though, is its commitment to homebrewers. Not only do they sell their own beers, but they allow others to use their high-quality equipment to produce brews as well.
Devil and the Deep Brewery is located on Galveston Island, a barrier island on the coast of Texas an hour from Houston. The brewery poured their first draft beer in February of 2018 and have built a menu inspired by Belgian and American craft beer styles.
For visitors who are fond of a smooth spirit, checking out the Texas Tail Distillery is a must. Located near the water, this distillery is a bit different from the local breweries, producing well-known spirits such as Texas Tail Vodka and Coastline Whiskey.
