    Exclusive peek into Winter Stout’s retirement bash

    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.

    Making Some Noise for Holler Brewing Co.

    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

    Petrol Station Celebrates Anniversary this Saturday

    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

    Rockwell Grill is Closing

    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,

    Review: Saint Arnold Bishop’s Barrel 15

    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

    Let’s dive right into this: Untapped Houston is back at Discovery Green on Saturday. I’m going, and you should, too.

    Open The Taps needs your help!

    Open The Taps was founded just over 5 years ago with a straightforward mission: bettering the environment in Texas for craft beer enthusiasts. We created the organization under a few key principles.

    GABF 2016 Wrap-Up: What happened to Houston?

    Last year, after my annual trip to Denver, I wrote a glowing write-up of Houston’s successes in bringing home hardware from the Great American Beer Fest competition. As you may recall, for the third year straight, Houston breweries garnered two medals, as just part of a strong Texas showing. Were such successes to continue for

    Brash Brewing First Anniversary Party

    October 8 marked Brash Brewing’s First Anniversary Party. The epic party seemed to have brought out every beer and metal nerd from across the city to Brashland bright and early Saturday afternoon. And rightly so, with exclusive merch teasers and exciting guest taps posted on social media since the tickets went on sale in early

  • 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.
