When you’re thinking of the places you can’t wait to visit once we’re past the coronavirus, think about this: will they still be there?

Every business in Katy faces an uncertain future. Now more than ever, when you spend money with a small business, you’re voting for its continued existence. We hear you. We appreciate you. We need you.

Everyone knows social gathering places like Battlehops are hurting, but it’s not just us. Practically every business is limited right now in ways many of us can’t imagine.

Many businesses are working day and night to help the community any way they can, whether it’s repurposing manufacturing facilities to create protective items, or giving families ways to stay safe, fed, and happy at home while doing their absolute best to keep jobs alive in Katy. And many are just as scared to lose their business as they are of this virus. Maybe more.

What can you do today to help Katy’s small businesses be here for us in the future?

  • Buy online gift cards. Save them for yourself to use later or give as gifts for the holidays.
  • Buy to go or delivery, if available.
  • Share on social media. When you buy from a business, don’t keep it to yourself. Encourage others to do the same.
  • Check in and write reviews.

What’s a Board Game Brewery?

You may have heard there’s a new Katy brewery. (That’s us!) But if that’s all you know, you haven’t gotten the whole story. Battlehops Brewing is Katy’s board game cafe and brewery in one: we like to call it a board game brewery. What exactly do we mean by that?

It means rather than focusing primarily on beer production, like a brewery, or primarily on board games, like a board game cafe or store, both beer and board games get top billing at Battlehops.

Battlehops Brewing is unique in that we’re producing beer, sodas, and coffee just one room over from our gaming taproom, where we have 400+ board games and custom-built tables.

Why a board game brewery? Board games bring people together. Beer brings people together. It’s delightful when we get to do both!

Our world feels increasingly disconnected, but every day at the brewery, we see people connecting over analog fun. That’s one of the things we enjoy the most about owning Battlehops.

What’s it like to visit our board game brewery? Battlehops is a social, community space where you’re invited to take a break and wind down with beer and gaming. While you might be interested in either beer or board games, we encourage you to enjoy them together because we’ve designed the brewery to deliver on both.

Often, people come for the beer, but pick up a game or two because it’s hard to walk past a wall of hundreds of games and not check one out. We love to see that! Playing a game adds another dimension of enjoyment to the beer experience. Board games can be immersive, like reading a book, but at the same time, they’re hands on and social. It’s good for your brain, stress relief, and of course, it’s a lot of fun.

We’re proud to offer a unique experience to the Katy community. We hope when you walk out of Battlehops, you feel a sense of satisfaction and joy from spending time playing board games and enjoying beer. And that you’re making plans to come back again soon!
