Sharing Houston Craft Beer

We love Houston craft beer, and we wanted to share it with the world. Nationally, Texas has been killing when it comes to beer, and it hasn’t gone unnoticed. The medals and national recognitions are great and very well deserved, but we wanted to shine the spotlight on Houston craft beer, specifically.

 

The goal is simple: share great beer with the people of Houston in an easy-to-read, no BS fashion. When you have a friend just getting into Houston craft beer, we aim to be their first stop along their journey.

 

While we write specifically about Houston craft beer here, we drink beer from all over, as long as it’s good!

  • Saint Arnold Lawnmower pours just as fancy as its full name. The chalk-white head rises up with tiny, frothy, little bubbles. The brilliantly clear straw yellow color is as welcoming as it is appropriate for a yard cuttin’ beer.

  • I heard Senate Ave Smoke Show Jalapeño Blonde was back on tap, and my ears perked up. I love spicy food, spicy drinks, hot sauce, and my curiosity for craft beer actually started with Don Jalapeño from No Label.

  • Equal Parts Exotica Zombie pours a slightly hazy orange, and the head is chalk white. The head dissipates pretty quickly, but a ring remains to...

  • This reminds me of Sierra Nevada Hazy Lil Thing. I haven’t had it in a while, but it's the one that comes to mind when I drink this Astral Mind Waves DIPA. Despite the 8.2% ABV, the body isn’t too heavy, and the mouthfeel is light and smooth with relatively low carbonation. No turbidity here. The mouthfeel...

  • I can’t fault the mouthfeel since it’s an 8.4% saison, though. From start to finish, fruity, spicy yeast-driven flavors dominate the sip. Considering the ABV, this is a real...
