Burklee Hill Vineyards Is Shifting into the Beer Making Enterprise

There’s not much information out there, but rumor has it that the owners of Burklee Hill Vineyards have bought a building near their winery and are planning to start Burklee Brew.

While Burklee Hill Vinyards is not a new venture in itself, their winery is a fairly new venture after starting their vineyard in 2002. They opened the winery in March 2020 after renovating the iconic Kress department store building in downtown Lubbock.

They serve a variety of wines along with their expertly designed menu. The winery owners, Chance and Elizabeth Hill, are all about trying and creating delicious food. Although Hill mainly leads the life of a farmer, he also enjoys cooking. Hill’s sister is also a cook in San Francisco, helping them curate the best food for their guests.

Despite being a newer winery, they have already made a name for themselves. Their 2019 Reserve Tempranillo even won a double gold medal and Best of Class award in the San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition in 2021.

Seeing their success with wines, I’m excited to see what they will do with beer. Burklee Brew tentative opening is this fall, which is fast approaching.

I wonder what made her start brewing beer as well as wine. There’s not much information on the new brewery so I’m excited to see how it turns out. It would be cool to see some unique versions of their beer as they are familiar with making wine, but I think we’ll just have to wait and see.
