Teufel Hunden Altbier Announced

“Teufel Hunden” is not a term known to many unless one speaks German or has served in the United States Marine Corps. June 2018 marked the 100th anniversary of the Battle of Belleau Wood in France, and a historic part of U.S. Marine Corps lore.

Lasting for almost a month, this battle resulted in almost 10,000 U.S. casualties, but for the Germans fighting, it was as if they were fighting ghosts, or “Tefuel Hunden” – Dogs From Hell. As hard as they fought, the members of the 5th and 6th Marine Regiments continued to push the offensive and earned forever the term “Devil Dog” for all of the Marine Corps.

The Meaning of 5 by 5

We are often asked what 5X5 stands for. The proper pronunciation for our name is 5 BY 5. As with our business model, our name has its history in military service.

The term 5X5 is rooted in the communications within military forces through WWII to mean "I understand you perfectly." The first number represented the Signal Strength of a radio communication, and the second number represented the signal clarity on a scale from 1-5 -- 1 being the worst; 5 being the best. Therefore 5 by 5 means the signal has excellent strength and perfect clarity - the most understandable signal possible. Five by five is the predecessor to the term "Loud and Clear" or "Lima/Charlie" used by military units today.

Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Hopiness

It has been a stressful set of months leading up to this point, but 5x5 Brewing is in the home-stretch. Our equipment is almost completely fabricated, our future home is getting the last of its renovations finalized, and licensing just needs some signatures and a green light from TABC.

We truly appreciate our 5x5 family for all their support throughout this process. So, on this special day in history, we celebrate the arrival of one of America's most shining symbols of our tenacity and enterprising spirit! Cheers to life, liberty, and the pursuit of HOPINESS!

What's Hoppening - June 1

When you take on a project like opening a brewery things can drag on. That being said . . . we certainly are not dragging our feet! All of us at 5x5 Brewing Co. have been diligently working to bring you our latest creations. 

Construction on our brewery is advancing nicely, and our equipment is being fabricated as we speak. You will also see a notice sign outside announcing our licensing process,which (let us tell you) takes quite a bit of time and patience.
