4J is a women-owned and family-operated craft brewery in the Houston/Spring Branch area. The family, including previous generations, has lived in Spring Branch for nearly 100 years.
The name 4J comes from the four “J” siblings – Jessica, Jackie, Joanna, and Jennifer. Having four girls whose name all start with a J made it tough on poor dad. He would refer to each of the girls by order of birth. The youngest, #4, started home brewing with Dad years ago, living by the motto “makin’ some and drinkin’ some.” The beer was always a hit at family events so one day, #4 and Mom decided to “steal” Dad’s hobby and shape it into a business. Dad, the official taste tester, quickly warmed up to the idea because he always has enough beer to drink. Mom and #4 sure do have their work cut out for them making sure he leaves some for others!
Please join our family, and stop by for a brew or glass of Texas wine!
