So imagine the joy in my face when I popped the cap of this brew and a flood of aromas were released. Hints of caramel with a quick punch of hops followed by a balance of citrus invaded my nose as well as the sizzle of carbonated beer filled my...

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...

The nose on Half Nelson is like a bouquet of bright flowers and citrus fruits. I was in love with it as soon as the smell wafted into my nasal cavity. Considering Mosaic and Nelson Sauvin are typically said to give amazing tropical aromas, I don’t know why...

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...

This brew was perfect for my current weekend plans, for at that very moment I was in a fierce battle of Cornhole and smoking pork belly on my charcoal grill. Boomtown Blonde, when poured, produces a fountain of golden liquid that settled with a...

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...
