Starbase Brewing is the Official Brewery of Mars
We're a Texas-based craft microbrewery aiming to be the first brewery on another planet. Our goals are to brew delicious beer, promote science and sustainability, and develop new brewing technologies optimized for humanity's future in space.
Established on Earth. Brewed for Mars.
The Brewing Philosophy
Starbase Brewing is creating out-of-this-world craft beers using the highest quality local Texas ingredients. Our beers are inspired by Starbase, Boca Chica, and the RGV, and are tailored specifically to space fans.
We brew a wide range of styles - everything from classic ales to experimental tropical lagers to even an imperial stout.
We have 12 different beers on tap in Austin, and 5 beers in distribution around South Texas.
Massively dryhopped tropical IPA that boasts a juicy vibrant finish with powerful notes of pineapple, peach, and blueberry.
Of Kölsch I Still Love You
Crisp Kölsch with the perfect balance of light malts and refreshing hops. Topped off with loads of tangy Huajillo honey.
Lucky Launch Day Lager
Clean, light-bodied lager brewed with flaked maize and German malts. An aroma of softly-spiced hops and corn chips.
Starbase Brewing was founded by engineers who love space as much as we love beer. We're as passionate about Mars Colonization as we are about Hop Utilization.
We’re obsessed with the science behind beer-making (called "Zymurgy"!), and engineering is at the heart of everything we do.
Our company mission, brewing philosophy, and future brewery locations are heavily influenced by everything happening in Starbase, Texas.
All of our beers are inspired by recent rocketry advancements, and are designed to educate about the future of humanity in space.
This underlying goal of Starbase Brewing is to brew the first beer on another planet, and we are the "Official Brewery of Mars".
We took over a small brewing facility on Burleson Rd in South Austin in Summer 2021. Many renovations followed, and we officially began brewing a few months later.
Our space-themed taproom in South Austin opened on Memorial Day Weekend 2022. Feel free to drop by and say hello if you're in the area!
We started distributing to South Texas in August 2022. We are also hoping to open a location in the RGV as soon as we can.
The Future of Craft Beer
Starbase Brewing is building the brewery of the future. Each innovative area we are investing in can also be applied to colonizing other planets. Some of the first projects we plan to work on include:
• Optimizing the brewery from the ground-up for data collection
• Re-capturing all CO2 from fermentation
• Utilizing reverse-osmosis water treatment for all brewing water
The Future is Sustainable
Starbase Brewing is committed to preserving the environment for future generations. We aim to be leaders in sustainability for the whole brewing industry. We are:
• Powered by 100% renewable energy
• Offsetting carbon emissions and investing in carbon removal tech
• Donating 1% of all profits to science education in Texas
