The double horn story
Double Horn is a town in central Texas that was formed in 1855. The town was founded at the headspring of Double Horn Creek and grew to a population of about 50 people in 1884. At the time, Double Horn was complete with a school, churches, and a post office. Around 1900 the population began to decline until nearly all traces of the community were gone in the mid-1900’s. It was only until December 11, 2018 the City of Double Horn was officially re-established in Burnet County, with a population of about 230 people.
So how did the town get the name of Double Horn? The town and the creek were reportedly named after an incident in which a pioneer found the remains of two bucks with interlocked antlers. Presumably, the two deer met at the creek, got into a tussle and died after their antlers became entangled. The Double Horn Brewing Company logo reflects the passionate battle of those two bucks.
Texas is a state where people have been enamored with the history behind the 266,807 square miles of the state that once stood as an independent republic before joining the Union on December 29, 1845. Double Horn Brewing Company’s hand crafted ales and cuisine hope to capture, preserve, and celebrate the pioneering spirit and inventiveness of the rugged Texas souls who founded the little Texas communities that helped establish our great state. Cheers!

Since his first taste of Fireman's #4, Logan knew he was into craft beer. It became a constant pursuit to find new and intriguing beers and to learn as much about the craft along the way.
After a degree from Texas State University, a few failed attempts at home-brewing and an undisclosed amount of craft beer later, Logan landed a summer job at Double Horn Brewing Company while he waited for a "real job" to call him back. Lucky for him former Head Brewer and long-time family friend, Eric Casey, decided to take Logan under his wing and teach him everything he knows about the industry.
After working with Casey, brewing hundreds of "mostly" successful home-brews, and endless research, Logan was finally ready to take over the brew house here at DHBC. Aided by his faithful bulldogs Beans (RIP) and Pepper, his philosophy toward beer is that it's all about the community and keeping them drinking the beer they want to drink.
"The patrons of Double Horn are what make it great, so they deserve a great brew to go along with it." - Logan Hoff
