Buffalo Sunset is a black IPA that mixes two of my favorite drinks, IPAs and coffee. The coffee comes from the Houston based coffee company, Amaya Roasting CO. The name, Buffalo Sunset, comes from the old Sunset Coffee building that was built on the Buffalo Bayou in 1910. Buffalo Bayou described this series as "aggressive and boundary pushing" and it...

I looked at Copperhead Breweries website and was delighted to see that this was a small craft brewery based out of Conroe that distributed only in Texas; making it a true Texan made beer for Texans. The reason for my cheerfulness was that...

Fresh Nugs has a cleeeeean flavor - man it's so good. The flavor starts off bright and crisp. Since the news of the Karbach sellout, this beer is going to be a bit harder to find. Many local bars that specialize in local beers are saddened by the news and have all but dumped their Karbach kegs. Despite all the bad press, I wrote about these beers before they sold out, and people that don't know much about craft, might not know if we don't tell them....

Is it too early to talk about Christmas Ale? Halloween JUST passed and The Great Pumpkinator won’t rise out of my sincere beer cellar (errr… beer fridge) until next year. Either way, Christmas Ale has been out for a few weeks and good beer doesn’t “show up too early” to me....

It's a sad day in Houston, but a great day at Karbach. News was released today that Houston craft beer powerhouse Karbach was bought out by Anheuser-Busch. Details of the deal have yet to be disclosed, but many within the craft community have said for a while now, "It's not a matter of if Karbach will be bought out, but when." ...

One thing about Yellow Rose is, although average in looks, its overpowering smell arrived before the beer touched my lips. It was a full blitz of citrus and fruity blended aromas. My first taste was absolutely pure bliss. Its perfect blend of citrus flavors with just the right amount of hops made this the smoothest IPA I have ever...

Baa Baa Brewhouse is quickly becoming a force in the local beer scene. They have a solid line up, and I think this Father Goose IPA is the headliner! No disrespect to the other beers they brew - they're legit, Father Goose is just that much better to me. Man, hold up, this might just be Beer Chronicle history in the making! I don't think I've ever...

Yellow Rose IPA is touted as one of the best beers in Houston, but that's a pretty bold statement. While the dank, resinous IPAs are good, and so are the crisp floral ones, this Yellow Rose sits right in the middle, pulling from the best of each. That's why I thought it was...

I had no expectation going in because it's an experimental beer without a name, and it's the first I've officially reviewed by Baa Baa. Marcus and Kinga gave us a fill to take home after we visited them to write up a little guide for Baa Baa. I'm pretty sure I drank it and began writing the next day. However, you may have read before...

Sweet Salvation is the brown ale to end all brown ales. While it's not as heavy as it looks, it's full of flavor - not for the faint of heart. It's malty, nutty and roasty tasting. It starts off with a powerful roasted malt flavor and ends with thick chocolatey, coffee notes. I really liked it....
