Our Story

Since 2004, Independence Brewing has served the Independent Thinkers & Drinkers of Texas. United by a love of beer and self-expression.

We liken ourselves to the venerable grackle — aka the Black Sheep of Birds — because like grackles our beers are bold, loud, and travel in packs. CAW!

Brannon Radicke

Brannon is what you'd call a Native Texan - he was born and raised just an hour south of Austin, in good ol' San Antone. He's been with the Independence team for 6 years, but he just made the move to Austin about 6 months ago.

He got into beer when he traveled Europe and visited 13 different countries, each with a different brewing style. If you've enjoyed Independence brews in the past, you've tasted this man's ideas and influences.
