Mostly Harmless got screwed, though. Pumpkinator vs. Rocket Fuel in the Sweet 16 is gonna be brutal. I’ve got EZ7 as my Cinderella. Think Yellow Rose can win it all

    Saint Arnold Bishop’s Barrel 17

    Saint Arnold’s barrel-aged series has reached its post-hype phase. Don’t let that stop you from hunting for the latest iteration, out today, because it’s delicious. A couple years ago, you needed a spreadsheet and a hashtag to track down a single bottle of each Bishop’s Barrel release. You also had to go to a bar

    8th Wonder 4th Annual Celebr8ion of Beer

    This weekend might be one of the busiest of the year with the rodeo, Saint Patrick’s Day, and March Madness. The main attraction on Saturday, March 18th, is on the Eastside, where 8th Wonder Brewery will be holding their annual brewed-up music festival for their 4th anniversary. We chatted with 8th Wonder president and co-founder

    SpindleTap Nails it With Houston Haze

    When I wrote “Who will be Houston’s Tree House or Trillium?”, I figured we’d see some breweries gradually approach the style and brew some reasonable attempts, but that it would take some time before we saw a true player on the hazy AF juice front.

    Ingenious Brewing Is Poised to Fill a Hoppy Void in Houston

    Out of all the local brewery responses to the “Who Will Be Houston’s Trillium or Tree House?“ essay, there was one that carried an unexpected air of intrigue, given that it stemmed from a producer that hasn’t even opened yet. Amid the thread of a Facebook post about the article, one commenter innocuously announced the

    Houston’s First Hazy IPA Can Release is March 3rd at B-52

    Conroe’s B-52 Brewing Company is releasing their hazy IPA, Wheez the Juice, in cans on Friday, March 3rd. Wheez the Juice is an IPA brewed in a similar fashion to the Northeast-style IPA that Larry has been talking about for the last several weeks. B-52 is hesitant to use the term “NEIPA” to describe this

    A look at Copperhead Brewery’s Feeding Frenzy IIPA

    Apparently I should write about things I want to see happen more often. Since publishing “Who will be Houston’s Trillium or Tree House?” a handful of our area breweries have gone public with their intentions to attempt to brew a beer closely adhering to the style hallmarks — huge tropical fruit flavor thanks to obscene

    Who will be Houston’s Tree House or Trillium?

    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?

  • Awesome review, Really excited about this beer release!!

    by dj Brewski Saint Arnold Bishop's Barrel 17

  • I am betting that a Brash beer will take it all. My money is on EZ-7 but maybe that's just what I drink the most. Would also like to Blood Belt go far, that beer rocked!
