Lame Duck pours a medium amber color, with the perfect amount of head. In the recent haze craze, anything amber that you can see through is sometimes dismissed. The color isn't too clear, which sometimes indicates a thin watery beer. Your nose can't miss the citrus fire that exudes after pouring....

When the crowd was finally mellowed and entranced by the live musician, who was covering 80’s/90’s ballads, Jeff was able to join me as well as a fellow author and a few brewers from Back Pew Brewing in a game of darts. It was during my back to back bullseye throws that I learned the story behind Lame Duck. The beer had originally been called...

Lame Duck, before they started canning it, was a brewery only beer. The first time I went to the brewery and tried it, it was love at first sight. It left me heart broken though because I couldn't make it out to the brewery often enough! Then 11 Below expanded their production and that allowed them to begin to can Lame Duck! ...

Kangaroo Killer Pale Ale by Copperhead Brewery is quickly becoming a go to brew!

Pine Belt Pale Ale is a bit aggressive for the style, but I still really enjoyed it. It's a year round beer and suitably so as it's refreshing enough to stand up to the Houston heat that fills 10 months of our calendars. APAs are typically a bit more gentle than IPAs when it comes to IBUs, ABV, and hop flavor, but this one...

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....

I believed that because it was an APA, the consistency would not rival most other international IPA and wow was I dead wrong. It’s ominous and intimidating design should have warned me that this was the ale you could not mess with. The after taste of hops still lingered strong after one gulp, and...
