HOUSTON (KTRK) --What began five years ago as a small local micro-brewery has today become the second-fastest growing craft brewery in America -- and it's right here in Houston!
Named for its location on Karbach Street in Houston's Spring Branch neighborhood, Karbach Brewing Company is not only famous for its beer, but also its brew burgers, outdoor Biergarten, and warehouse tours -- where more than 50,000 barrels of brew is produced a year.

With wall-to-wall windows linking the restaurant to the warehouse, customers can see the actual brewing process firsthand.
"After the barely, wheat, hops and water are combined," explains Marketing Manager David Graham, "the beer is fermented and then put into used spirit barrels to help draw out the flavor even more. "
The aged barrels are also incorporated into the interior design, as furnishings in the bar area.
"At the end of the day, it's all about the beer," adds Graham. "And beer is fun. We try to make sure fun shows in everything we do."
