Celis is a brewery in the United States. The most widely known brews are Celis White, a Belgian-style "witbier" (white beer), Celis Pale Bock, and Pale Rider Ale, named for the Clint Eastwood film.

The brewery was founded by Belgian brewer Pierre Celis, who had already founded the well-known Hoegaarden Brewery, named after his home town Hoegaarden in Belgium. Many people believe that Celis relocated to the United States, but he actually never did (however, his daughter Christine and now ex-husband Peter Camps, who managed the Celis brewery, did live in Texas). However, he still became a leading figure in the craft beer movement of the 1990s.

Celis Brewery was located in a small building in the northeast of Austin, Texas near the highways US 290 and I-35. Miller Brewing bought a stake in Celis Brewery and managed distribution. Years later, Celis had the choice of buying back his shares or selling out to Miller at a pre-negotiated price. He chose to sell. Miller ultimately closed the brewery, claiming that the beers were not generating sufficient revenue. The last of the beer was delivered to stores in February 2001.

In late 2002, Michigan Brewing Company announced it had acquired the Celis brand name from Miller. Celis White and Celis Pale Bock began to ship to pubs again in December 2002. They now produce Celis White, Celis Pale Bock, Celis Raspberry, and Celis Grand Cru.
