bakfish-beer glassPearland will soon be home to its first microbrewery with the anticipated January opening of BAKFISH Brewing Company located at 1231 Broadway Street. Two years ago, a casual conversation over beers between co-owners Brian Allen and Kris Szecsy about brewpub law changes emerged as a full-fledged effort to open their new business.

bakfish ownersLeaving their full time careers – a chemist in the oil and gas industry for Kris and business development in aviation for Brian, the BAKFISH name derived simply from their initials “B” and “K” with “fish” added as an homage to Kris’ background in marine biology plus the emphasis of being located on the Gulf Coast.

Brian, a native Pearlander, conducted a bit of research only to find the Houston area south of Loop 610 is underserved for brewpubs and soon after their Pearland location was born.

With over 8,000 square feet, BAKFISH Brewing Company will offer 5 core beers including a blonde, wit, brown porter, single IPA and double IPA plus seasonals. A 20-gallon pilot system will allow Head Brewer Kris an opportunity to test new products.

While Kris focuses on perfecting brews and testing new products, Brian manages the front of the house including the 3,200+ square feet of space available fbakfish beer kegor private events, 2,000 square foot tap room plus 1,200+ square feet in the actual brewery. With a seating capacity of 200, the duo plans to offer a variety of events to draw visitors including food trucks, game night, partnerships with biking and fitness enthusiasts and more.  BAKFISH is pet-friendly and kid-friendly.

The duo says right now they have verbal commitments from various local dining and drinking establishments to carry their product.

“We’re very excited to be part of the Pearland community and look forward to rolling out a few events to celebrate including two soft openings before our official ribbon cutting ceremony,” says Brian Allen co-owner of BAKFISH Brewing Company.
