Austin is set to welcome one of the city's largest new breweries with the addition of the Flemish Fox Brewery and Craftworks, a new brewery set to open in North Austin in early 2017. Flemish Fox is the brainchild of Christine Celis, the daughter of Pierre Celis, the Dutch brewer credited with sparking the city's craft beer scene. Particularly known for his specialty Belgian-style witbier, Celis' brewery was unfortunately bought out by the Miller Brewing Company and would eventually shutter, thereby ending the family name.
Looking to revive the long family legacy of brewing, Christine Celis is partnering with her daughter Daytona, who has also recently been working as a brewery at the local Uncle Billy's brewery. When Flemish Fox opens, it is set to be one of Austin's largest breweries with an extensive, four building warehouse that will house a production and distribution facility, a gift shop, beer garden and 3,800 square-foot museum that will host original brewing equipment from the family's Celis Brewery.
