Infamous Brewing Co. Hudson Bend beer maker expands operations

Infamous Brewing Co. outgrew its Hudson Bend facility in 2015, prompting owner Josh Horowitz to partner with Dallas-area Grapevine Craft Brewery for additional beer production, he said.

Infamous brewed its first beer in Grapevine on Dec. 1, Horowitz said. As a result of the added space, the brewery is expecting to produce more beer, including new brews —Camacho, an 8 percent alcohol by volume, or ABV, beer made from the base of its peanut butter stout, Sweep the Leg, and India pale ale Party Juice—in early 2016, he said.

“[The partnership] gave us the potential to expand and use the extra capacity to brew beers in the [Grapevine] facility,” Horowitz said. We were maxed out on capacity at Hudson Bend at the first of 2015.”

He said the expansion doubles the brewery’s production volume of its most popular labels Hijack and Double Tap Imperial IPA cans—from 60 barrels to 120 barrels of each product.
