    City Acre: Right at Home at Houston’s New Brewpub

    On Thursday night I attended a preview of the much anticipated City Acre Brewing Co., a brewpub located about 10 minutes north of downtown off U.S. 59 at 3418 Topping Street. Originally slated to open four years ago, but delayed due to complex city regulations and beer laws, City Acre will hold its long-awaited grand opening on July

    Have Your Cookie and Drink It, Too

    Forget cookies and milk — cookies and beer is where it’s at. As craft beer has become more popular, interest in beer and food pairing has increased. Some of the most creative pairings involve a favorite American treat: Girl Scout cookies. As articles of Girl Scout cookie pairings spread across social media, Ballast Point Brewing

  • Untapped Festival 2015 – All the beer. All the music. All the sweat.

    I guess third time’s a charm: after being plagued by weather problems the past two years, 2015’s Untapped Festival was a perfectly sunny sweat-drencher. The weather wasn’t the only thing Untapped got right this year: from beer selection to musical talent, this year’s line-up did Houston proud. I got there a little later than I

  • I wasn't aware they had signed with a distributor, and I'm not aware of any Houston area beer distributors going under. It's possible that they signed with a wine distributor (since they own a winery as well), but it's also possible that Running Walker decided to stop self-distributing their beer to that Total Wine. Where to find it kind of depends what part of town your in. I'd check local grocery stores, Spec's, and any bottle shops you may have in your area.
