CYPRESS, Texas – (Realty News Report) – NAI Partners arranged the acquisition of Misfit Outpost’s craft brewery location at 16602 Cypress Rosehill Road in Cypress, the former location of The Shack Burger Resort.
Misfit Outpost is the latest in a string of recent local brewery openings in the Houston area..
Misfit Outpost—a partnership between Fortress BeerWorks and Misfit Brewing—flung its doors open on Friday, Sept. 3. The 5-acre family- and dog-friendly brewery facility offers live music on weekends, a burger-fueled food menu, Misfit features its own beers brewed on-site, and sudsy offerings from Fortress BeerWorks—both on the tapwall and with 16-oz canned to-go options.
NAI Partners’ Chris Caudill arranged the sale for Misfit Outpost, and also completed the lease for Fortress BeerWorks’ current location at 2606 Spring Cypress Road in Spring..
“Since opening Fortress three years ago in Spring, the craft beer community’s support has been overwhelming,” said Fortress BeerWorks co-founder and co-owner John O’Hara. “When the right opportunity arose to partner with Juan, help him go pro and get his delicious recipes in front of a wider audience, it was a no-brainer.”
Misfit Outpost began life as a homebrew project for founder Juan Sanchez, who quickly amassed a devoted following via photographs of his beers on Instagram—many of which were in the highly-sought-after Hazy India Pale Ale category, a beer style beloved by its fans for being extravagantly hopped to coax huge tropical fruit flavors showcased on a soft, creamy, hazy unfiltered body that often resembles a glass of orange juice and can even taste like one.
“While examples of the Hazy India Pale Ale have become a staple in the supermarket beer aisle, larger breweries with national footprints are often unable or unwilling to replicate the over-the-top hop saturation and extreme pound-per-barrel dry-hopping rates showcased by the very best producers of the style,” said Larry Koestler, a craft beer enthusiast, consultant and Houston-based real estate executive. “Hazy Double IPA obsessives generally need to travel directly to the source to secure cans of the top-tier examples of the style to satisfy their craving for overindulgent, palate-coating, citrusy hop nirvana.”
Koestler is Senior Vice President of Marketing & Communications at NAI Partners, the commercial real estate services business of Partners Real Estate Company,
“Houston has a deep and talented homebrew scene, with several local professional breweries having been launched by homebrewers, though this collaborative physical location arrangement between Misfit and Fortress is the first of its kind locally,” Koestler said. ”It’s always exciting when an up-and-comer you’ve been following and have enjoyed samples from goes pro, and I’ll keep my fingers crossed for the next homebrewer that wants to take the leap to the big leagues.”
The past 8 years have seen the total number of Houston breweries increase by 344 percent, with total square footage expanding by 179 percent to 652,533 SF, according to NAI report released in July.
