The Gilstrap clan, brothers Brian and Matt plus Brian’s wife Annie, took their passion to retail. They were avid beer brewers and their taste for the homemade outgrew their home so they opened East Texas Brewing in downtown Tyler.

They have an impressive microbrewery, a small bar area, a large patio, and so many fans they are enlarging. This month, on St. Patrick’s Day, March 17, they are scheduled to open their expansion project that includes a restaurant, The Porch at ETX, and a stage with additional seating. The Porch menu includes sandwiches, salads, burgers, appetizers, and desserts.
