HCA Field Trip Luncheon to Platypus Brewery

This month the Houston Contractor’s Association broke from its usual tradition of hosting a formal member luncheon with a speaker, and opted for a purely fun event, a tour of the local Platypus Brewery.  The brewery held its grand opening to the public on September 31, 2016.  It currently produces eight different types of beer, and some are available on tap in select bars and restaurants around the city.  All eight beers are available in the Platypus Brewery tap room located at 1902 Washington Ave. Houston, Tx. 77007 and they are open seven days a week.

The tour was a big hit with our members drawing over 180 attendees for a buffet lunch, tour of the brewery and all the free beer you could drink.  Each attendee also left with a complimentary, commemorative pint glass.
