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!

    It’s distinguishable on each sip, though! Each crisp, refreshing sip of Saint Arnold Summer Pils is a reminder that simplicity is deceiving. Nuance. Finesse. Balance.

    In typical Beer Chronicle Fashion, it's not about us. For our Birthday, we want to shine a spotlight on one Houston brewery, the Most Valuable Brewery (MVB)...

  • 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...

  • The flavor of Saint Arnold Santo is perfect to pair with crawfish, BBQ, enchiladas, and just about anything good. It’s light enough to drink a few while packing a punch flavor and aroma wise. Each sip...

  • The blessed well water in Porter is now gracing a few new hop-charged beers, and it seems like Back Pew IPAs are turning a new leaf in 2021.

  • The best selling stout in Texas hits Houston shelves alongside other Lakewood staples. Lakewood Brewing Temptress Stout, the best selling stout in Texas...

  • Who has the best Oktoberfest in Houston? Or Märzen? Or Festbier? Wait, what’s the difference anyhow?

  • Brewed with Galaxy and Sabro hops, this NEIPA pours a bright golden yellow color with light lacing and a head that quickly disappears. While hazy and fairly opaque, it does not...

  • We can't cover every homebrewer in Houston. Hell, we can't cover every bar that's slingin' good beer, much less all the homebrewers, but Misfit Brewing...

  • 2018-2019 MVB Winner is announced.

  • Houston's favorite Houston brewery... in Houston! Voting is open!

  • Upon further inspection, aromas of cherries, chocolate, and airy-bourbon-barrel soothe my nose. It smells like a cordial chocolate out for a night on the town...

  • The super soft mouthfeel starts off with a soft wave of peaches and tangelos, while the spicy finish lingers with bone-dry grapefruit bitterness...

  • Sweet, rich, complex, and fruity-esters dominate each sip as only Medusa could. The lively carbonation adds a refreshing mouthfeel to a beer that could otherwise be perceived as...

  • Since SpindleTap Juiceton recipe has evolved over time into something noteworthy, I figured I'd see how well it held up in a can. For a year. The results...

  • While B52 Gold Bricks 1 led me to believe I was in for a super-hot, liquor-laden beer, my first sip was an eye-opener...
