The Northeast-Style IPA Spreads its Wings Last April, with a good deal of fanfare (at least within beer geek circles), The Veil Brewing Company in Richmond, Virginia, flung its doors open for the first time on a Saturday morning at 11:00 a.m. Why does this matter to a primarily Houston-based audience of beer lovers? For

Well, 2016 certainly was interesting, wasn’t it? Jose started the year off by telling you to stop aging beer, we hosted a Houston Beer themed March Madness bracket and a bot almost ruined it, Lone Pint (FINALLY) started dating bottles of Yellow Rose, Saint Arnold turned 22, Whole Foods sold beer for $2, and Karbach

I’ve read the articles against standing in line for beer. Thrillist recently wrote one, and there’s an entire thread devoted to debating the subject on Beer Advocate, but here I sit, in my second line in a week for beer. The question you may ask is why? Do I not believe there are great beers

At first, the setting of a WFM beer dinner feels exactly like you’d imagine eating dinner overlooking a Whole Foods would feel: eco-chic and a little sterile. That tone was softened by the gift bags filled with organic snacks and brewmaster Dave Ohmer rocking a felt fedora, complete with a German flag colored band and

Houston Beer Guide managed to get an exclusive invite to the retirement of one of Houston’s greats, a beer that may be departing for now, but will live forever in our hearts. Here’s a transcript of the event: <Lawnmower taps on a pint glass> “Can I get everyone’s attention for just a few moments? Thank

Like many of us, John & Kathryn Holler moved to Houston to work, and, like many us, they found an unexpected home here; they could not think of a single place they’d rather open a brewery. In the four years after moving to Houston from Tampa, Florida in 2009, they grew attached to the city

I have lived in the wonderful, humidity-filled sweat box of Houston for a little over two years. I love the city, and one of the first places that facilitated that love was Petrol Station. For those out of the Loop, Petrol Station is tucked away in Garden Oaks/Oak Forrest area (aka the GOOF) just north

This story will be updated throughout the day, please check back for updates. We will also tweet updates from @HoustonBeer. Update 3:00pm: Karbach has yet to respond to requests for comment. Meanwhile, we were able to reach Scott Metzger, Freetail owner, who was able to clarify the ramifications for Karbach as far as the Texas Craft

Rockwell Grill, a craft beer staple in Cypress for the past six years, is closing. Sunday, October 30th will be their final day of business. Rockwell has been under current ownership since 2010. During that time they built themselves into one of the premier craft beer-centric bar/ restaurants in the Cypress area. Many beer nerds,

I don’t eat a lot of fruit. When drinking an IPA I couldn’t tell you the difference between mango or passion fruit, as many reviews do. “It tastes fruity” or “that has a lot of citrus” may be about as far as I get, so don’t look for my review of the next Brash IPA any
They should sell them in Five packs.

That's a very broad question that depends on what you consider a brewery and what you consider Houston. Last I checked we had 42 breweries & brewpubs on our radar for open or soon-to-be open breweries in the greater Houston area, but that was 2 months ago.

Do you have a list or know exactly how many breweries are in Houston currently?

Whole Foods frequently distributes a very, very good distribution of Houston breweries. I would strongly suspect that many of these three will show up at area Whole Foods soon, if not already. As for singles, individual stores do things differently, so definitely call first.

Hi, Do you know if Whole Foods Market sells these and if is possible to buy single bottles/cans in these stores in the Houston area, like it is in San Francisco? Thanks! Ake
