Southern Star Brewing


Working to bring people together in Conroe, Texas, Southern Star Brewing Co. is all about community, entertainment, and premium craft beer.

Founded in July of 2007 by David Fougeron and Brian Hutchins, Southern Star Brewing Company was the first craft brewery in the state of Texas to offer canned beer. Since opening their doors, the brewery has specialized in crisp, clean beers to heighten any occasion and appeal to any craft beer lover.

David Fougeron, a native Houstonian, got his start in homebrewing while attending Texas A&M University. It was initially a ploy to save money on beer, but brewing quickly became a beloved hobby and passion of David’s as he refined his craft and started developing some rather remarkable brews. After graduating from Texas A&M with a degree in Wildlife and Fisheries Science, David had trouble securing a job in the field and, on a whim, applied to be an assistant brewer at Saint Arnolds Brewery in Houston. He got the job, and over several years, worked his way up to head brewmaster, securing his future in the craft beer industry.

David spent eight years at Saint Arnolds, and then decided he was ready to take what he had learned to create his own brand. He teamed up with fellow brewer Brian Hutchins and Southern Star Brewing Company became a reality in 2007.

What began as a two-man operation,now employs over twenty people, all dedicated to crafting premium quality brews while supporting the local community and bringing fellow beer enthusiasts together.

Due to their dramatic increase in popularity over the years, Southern Star Brewing Co. had the opportunity to move operations in 2016 to a brand new,custom-built facility that’s all about entertaining. With a massive on-site taproom, outdoor biergarten, live music stage, disc golf course, food trucks, games, and Bingo/Trivia nights - and not to mention award-winning beers - this brewery truly has something for everyone. We are happy to introduce Southern Star Brewing to our Craft Beer Club members. Enjoy!
