Prost Alehouse, the newest tap and brewhouse in Pflugerville, held a ribbon-cutting March 15. The converted historic space at 115 E. Main St. serves many house-crafted beers.

What’s happening?

With the support of the Pflugerville Community Development Corporation, owners Troy and Iven Dudley successfully navigated challenges related to infrastructure and code compliance. Purchasing the property in 2020, Prost was originally scheduled to open its doors in August 2023.

Originally a day care, the building has since been repurposed into the brewery and taproom it is today.

“So here we stand four years later, on the brink of a new chapter, our brewery stands as a testament to the power of the community, teamwork and the spirit of entrepreneurship,” Troy Dudley said. “We're humbled to be a part of the vibrant community here in Pflugerville.”

The Prost menu boasts a range of beverage options from light to dark and sweet to hoppy. The company has also partnered with a local food truck, Van’s Damn Tasty Tacos and Ronburguesas. Patrons may order food from the patio.

Also of note

Head brewer Kevin Decoud said the brewery strives to remain as close to traditional German beer brewing as possible, importing the grains for the beer straight from Germany.

The brewery also adheres closely to traditional German Purity Laws in which only four ingredients are used, Decoud said. He explained there are no enzymes or additives used throughout the brewing process—just malt, hops, yeast and water.

The entrance to the building leads visitors directly into a front-and-center view of the brewery where Decoud meticulously manages the intricate processes of brewing. Then, upon walking upstairs, guests may order from the list of beers made in-house, then grab a seat in the cozy taproom.

PCDC Executive Director Amy Madison highlighted the dedication of everyone involved in this project, noting the work it took to repurpose the old building was difficult.

“The fact is, one of these days this is going to be the scene of what is happening in the entire area. It is going to be reflected in what we do down the street in downtown east—everything that comes out of the ground [in this area],” Madison said.

Looking ahead

To celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, Prost will be hosting Irish music and a bagpipe show March 16. The brewery will also be selling green beer.
