Tomball's first brewery, Bearded Fox Brewing Company, will open its doors to the public for a soft opening tasting event Saturday afternoon.

The brewery, located on 11729 Spring Cypress Road, Tomball, in the Plaza One Shopping Center, will be open to the public from 4 to 7 p.m. Admission is free, and guests wanting to sample beers can purchase three 12-ounce beer tokens for $12, or they can purchase three tokens and a branded pint glass for $20.

Co-owners Mike Sturm, Marcus Garcia, Steve Early, Trey Looney, Randall Clark and Russell Klasel began construction on the brewery last summer and have since begun distributing beer at a handful of local eateries, including Cypress establishments The Shack Burger Resort and the 21st Amendment Lounge. 

The brewery's beer lineup includes a red lager, an imperial India Pale Ale, a molasses stout and a coffee porter.

Sturm said he hopes the brewery will officially open in mid-June but will be hosting a series of similar soft opening events for the public.
