Southern Star’s goal with Spring Pils was to create a Texan rendition on a thirst quenching German style Pilsner. It was their seasonal response to the 9 to 10 months of heat that ranged from murky warm to skin baking demon fire that we all know too well living here in H-Town. They created...

It's a good beer. I enjoy it, and I can see myself recommending it to someone that enjoys Belgian wits. There's a difference between I like this, I don't like this, and I don't prefer this - I don't prefer Belgian beers over others, so sometimes I'm a bit reluctant to try them. Glad I tried White Noise, though. I'm gonna give White Noise a solid...

This week, I decided to go back to an old reliable “safety blanket” craft brew from those hard working brew masters over at St. Arnold. Many of us have probably partaken in a St. Arnold lunch or weekend get together, so indulge me for a few moments as I word vomit my enjoyment of a faithful brew....

A couple buddies and I were going to watch the Astros play one afternoon, and we decided we'd meet up early for a beer at Home Plate Grill. We arrive, and the craft selection isn't too impressive. Mind you, this was almost 6 months ago, so their selection may have grown. I asked for a Hopadillo - it's all foamy, they're about to stop serving it, just like the Amber Ale beside it. SMH. "How about those Texas Beer Refinery handles," - I ask again, halfway shouting over...

This delicious concotion has the exact airy fragrance as any regular pilsner and even to the moment of consumption the aroma stays true. The taste though is far from just some ordinary pilsner. It starts with a hard bitter punch and smooths to a sweet finish. Blue Testament...

Copperhead Striker IPA is the first beer I had from them. I remember seeing it on the shelf late this summer and being really excited to see a new, smaller brewery on the shelf! I swear I wrote about it, but I lost the write up somehow? I've bought it a few times since then because it's daaaaaang good, but as I...

Did you know that City Acre Brewing Co. sells bombers to go? Me either. I found out on a Sunday morning while trying to find a brunch spot. Lucky me, I found City Acre offers bunch. I would be making a huge mistake if I didn't take a second to tell you how good their food is. I had the Brewers plate - I think - a plate full of goo-ood food for around 10 bucks!...

The post that almost never happened: After a few weeks of gathering beer from all over town, and one long ass drive to Galveston Island, we did it. We had them all. We met up with a few other friends for a potluck meal just before Thanksgiving, and the Top 5 Best IPAs in Houston was born. None of us are official BJCP judges or cicerones (yet), as you may have read elsewhere on the site, but here's our take as consumers - just regular dudes that...

Fast forward almost two years, and I'm in the garage trying to fix my wife's headlight. I knew I wanted a beer, and when I opened up my fridge, Art Car IPA smiled at me almost as to say, "You're fixing the car, dude. I'm the one." Bingo, Art Car IPA it is. Saint Arnold Art Car IPA smells of fruity hops, and the taste...

When it comes to Belgian beers, I either love them or I don't. The flavors are just too complex to leave room for any gray area. This Derrickman Dubbel is good, and it's even more special knowing that as I'm drinking it, it's gone. It was a good beer, and I rated it accordingly. What'd you think - Derrickman Dubbel leave you gushing?...

Last time I had Derailler, it was icy-cold outside, we were at Cycler's Brewing interviewing Clay, and we had it straight from the tank. It was cold and could've benefitted from warming up a bit, but with the temperature outside, that wasn't a luxury we could afford. Despite the cold temp, the beer was delicious. This time...
