    Funkwerks Signs With Flood for Houston Distribution

    Flood Independent Distribution recently added Fort Collins, Colorado based Funkwerks to their portfolio.

Going back even further, their flagship Saison

  • This is why we can’t have nice things.

    As long as I’ve been in the craft beer community, there’s been a saying I’ve heard most places I go: “Craft beer people are good people”. I’ve always believed that saying, and with a few very notable exceptions, I’ve found it to be true. Today is one of those exceptions. I woke up this morning to

    8th Wonder February Giveaway!

    8th Wonder draws their inspiration from this great city, whether it be Hakeem and his Dream Shake, NASA’s Mission Control, or local store Premium Goods. Even their name came from walking into the warehouse that is now their home and saying, “Hey, this roof looks like the Astrodome.” They’ve given us a bunch of stuff to give

    History is Being Brewed in Downtown Alvin

    There’s been a lot of talk in the Houston beer community about how the “solution to our problems” will be neighborhood-focused breweries. Houston’s urban sprawl makes it unlikely that we will duplicate the brewery-every-mile format of more developed beer cities, but that also makes it the perfect environment to have a brewery (or two or three)

    Tasting Review: Rotundone from Buffalo Bayou

    Call it serendipity, call it beer Karma, call it whatever you want. I recently wrote about how I think Houston’s ideal beer style is the Saison. While there are were several examples of the style available at the time, none were quite the pepper-forward version of the Saison style that I absolutely love. That is,

    Houston’s Ideal Beer is the Saison

    What if I told you there was a style designed to be refreshing after a hard days work on a hot summers day? It is loaded with fruity flavors that can range from citrus to baked pear, but it is not a “fruit beer”. A moderate spiciness balances out the fruitiness, bringing to mind a

  • 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.
