Texas Trivia

The number of Texas breweries had increased to twenty-seven by 1870. They were all small and continued to be in areas with large German populations. Dallas, La Grange (Fayette County), and Brenham each had two breweries; others were located in Jefferson, Paris, Sherman, Austin, Industry, Hallettsville, High Hill, Waco, Marlin, Bastrop, Bellville, Victoria, San Antonio, Castroville, Fredericksburg, and New Braunfels. Houston was the leader in the state with three breweries. The 1870 census also indicated a total of seventy-seven employees in the breweries. The year 1883 proved to be the turning point for a competitive Texas brewery industry when Adolphus Busch took his technology to San Antonio and with a group of San Antonio businessmen built the first large, mechanized brewery in Texas.
