A (very) short guide to who to follow on Houston beer Twitter

Trying to catch up with what’s happening with beer in the Space City? Twitter is a darn good place to start. So who to follow to #PlugIn? If you’re reading this, you probably already follow everyone in the list below, but just in case…

@GoodBeerHouston

These guys have been at it for a number of years, and just do a damn fine job of keeping up with the amazing diversity of beer events, releases, tappings, and general goings on across the vast geography that is Houston. If there’s one account to plug into on a visit to Houston, it’s this one. They’ll get you to a great spot with good beer and good people to talk to.

@FlyingSaucerHou, @SaucerSugarLand, @Petrol_Station, @HayMerchant, @Cottonwoodbar, @DandTIceHouse, @nobipub, @GrowlersMontros

Every craft beer bar in Houston has a social media presence, but these bars stand out to me for their interaction with customers, frequent tweeting of specials (and special tappings), and just overall participation in the social media fabric of H-town’s beer scene

@Specs_Beer_Dept, @TheBeerStation, @CornerFoodMart

Again, many supermarkets (especially the HEB locations around town) and the Whole Foods do a nice job of tweeting out special releases and allocations, but these 3 guys have been at it a long time and, like the bars I listed above, are interactive with their customers on Tha Twitterz.

So let’s say you’re at that craft beer bar or store, and you just scored an incredible pint/bottle of tasty Houston craft beer…but there’s no one to talk about it with! The HBG crew is a great place to start — they’ll always be willing to send a few @replies into your timeline …

@HoustonBeer, @astrosguy, @beernoulli, @beer_chris, @nathanmmiller, @beernerds, @LushtasticTX, @ehnovelty, @TheBeerGentlmn, @Jack_Around, @TimSpies, @codyhaskell, @ManuelTransmssn, @Lake_Speed

    On demand craft beer? Not yet.

    If you’re like me, you pay close attention to the latest announcement of some or another company joining in on the push to expand the ‘on demand economy’ into beer, wine and liquor. A confluence of circumstances recently has had me doing more than just watching press releases to using the services. I’ve used a
