BUNA - Another new Texas craft brewery is under development named the Republic of Texas Brewery. With a location north of Beaumont, this brewery will provide the East Texas/Houston area with another local craft brewer.
The brewers John McKissack and his wife Tammy may be better known as "Johnny Max" and "the Queen" for their online podcasts at BrewCrAzY and Beer Talk Radio. A long-time homebrewer and BJCP certified beer judge, McKissack is committed to building his brewery debt-free.
A location is already being prepared in Buna, with a projected opening date of 2011.
