5th Annual – 2020-2021 Houston MVB


5th Annual – 2020-2021 Houston MVB

Wow. 5 Years. First and foremost, thanks y’all. For real. 

We started this little site because we didn’t think Houston’s emerging craft beer scene got the quality attention it deserved, and y’all have proven to us week in and week out that our time isn’t spent in vain. When we started there were a small handful of little blogs that were pretty good, and zero major news outlets covering the topic.

Fast forward to 2021, and now every big news company in town is posting articles and videos about craft beer, and a few have even been so kind as to copy our pages on their own site. Imitation is the most sincere form of flattery, right? 🙂

From adding new people to the team, to adding an online store, to becoming a part of the beer industry by working on photo/video projects and designing labels/websites for breweries, Beer Chronicle has grown into what it is now because of you.

We’re humbled by y’all’s support, readership, and every time you share our stuff on social media.

Thank you.

Now, if you’ve been along for the ride since day one, you know we started this thing in Spring of 2016 and really got the site going on July 13, 2016, better known as 7-13. We couldn’t have not planned it better.

In typical Beer Chronicle Fashion, we don’e want to make our birthday just about us.

For our FIFTH Birthday, we want to shine a spotlight on one Houston brewery, the Most Valuable Brewery (MVB), of the 2020-2021 season.

Now, the second half of 2020 was wild, and 2021 started off a little rocky. Hopefully somebody has done something that you deem worthy of being titled MVB!

Vote here, share the link, and get all the homies in on it! But hurry! Voting ends July 31 at midnight.



MVB Voting – What’s in it for You?

3 Random voters will be chosen for a swag pack that’ll likely include beer, beer stuff, and other stuff. It’s always fire. We may even bust out some Houston Beer antiques one of these days.

Furthermore, every voter will receive a discount code for our store site. We don’t run sales, and we don’t offer very many discounts because, to be brutally honest, our margins aren’t that great! Hah! Either way, this will be the biggest disocunt to date.

Finally, helping shine a little spotlight on your favorite brewery. The makers, servers, and pioneers that you think are raising the bar for Houston beer deserve to be recognized. And you can help in less than 2 minutes.

MVB Voting – What’s in it for the Breweries?

The MVB winner will receive a framed certificate to commemorate their victory, and we’re adding a sick trophy into the mix.

The MVB winner will also receive an ad spot on our site, reaching the tens of thousands of beer drinkers that read our rants and rambles as well as an interview to celebrate their win.

2016-2017 MVB – SpindleTap
2017-2018 MVB – SpindleTap
2018-2019 MVB – No Label
2019-2020 MVB – Ingenious
2020-2021 MVB – Your (favorite) Brewery Here

Winning a GABF medal is almost as prestigious as winning the MVB.

Almost. 😉

Just ask one of SpindleTap’s owners, Brody Chapman. He had this to say, “Thanks for all your support over the last four years. You’ve been instrumental in our growth.”

So, make your country, city, proud and vote!

Beers to you, Houston. 🍻
