Concho Careers: The Process of Making Beer


Zero One Ale House is a popular destination in downtown San Angelo and has been brewing their own beer since 2015. Erik Zovel opened the brew-pub in 2012 as just a restaurant knowing once he got established he would add his own beers to the menu. 

Before brewing beer and owning a restaurant, Zovel was an architect. Once he started home brewing it inly took him a few kits before he was hooked. In 2015 the first three beers he brewed were a amber ale, rye pale ale, and a stout. 

In total it takes three and a half weeks before any of his beers are ready to taste. For Zovel he rely’s on his own palate for the taste of his beers and said “there was a huge learning curve going from self-taught to big batches.” But, after three years Zovel seems to have his brewing recipes down and has anywhere from three-eight on tap at a time.
