Dome Faux’m, 8th Wonder Brewery



Dome Faux’m

8th Wonder Brewery

Houston, TX

Throwback Cream Ale

ABV: 5.2%

IBUs: 24

Packaging: Draft, 12oz. Cans



Dome Faux’m is a little stronger in flavor than the average ale, but it’s easy drinking. Overall, it’s smooth and a little sweet and juicy. For the average bud-light drinker, it’ll be a little bit strong. Dome Faux’m’s very crisp, refreshing and balanced on the tongue with a mildly floral hop bitterness on the finish – I love this stuff!

Dome Faux’m has a real light straw color, just like you’d expect from an ale.

Man, hold up! This beer blew my expectations away. I thought it was going to be sort of boring for some reason. I expected a plain old ale.

I rated Dome Faux’m a 5 star because it’s delicious. It’s everything I look for in a beer. I like stronger beers from time to time, but not everybody does. This is the kind of beer I could share with a friend pretty easily. Apparently, I’m not the only one that’s really digging Dome Faux’m. The nice ladies and gentlemen over at 8th Wonder won themselves a silver metal in the 2016 US Beer Open for the American Cream Ale category. Nice!


Artwork/packaging (can only) blue, orange, red and yellow, reminiscent of the old Astros “rainbow” jerseys, with the astrodome as the focal point. Beautiful artwork.

I got my 6 pack at HEB, but I also had it on tap at the 8th Wonder Taproom AKA Wonder World.

This beer is fantastic. I love it. I think it takes a lot to rate something 5 stars – that’s like saying it’s perfect. But Dome Faux’m is perfect. Perfect is quite a statement, I know. Have you had any beer lately that you thought was perfect? Let us know below, and we’ll try and put it on the site. Or if it’s already on the site, maybe we’ll just drink some more of it cause it’s good?

Beers to you, Houston!
