    7 Canned Beers to Drink This Summer

    There’s a variation on Stockholm Syndrome that Houstonians know all too well: when summer is in full swing, dashing any hope of escape from the sweltering heat. It’s time for outdoor barbecues (huddle around the shade of that one tree, it might help), weekends by the pool, trips to Galveston, and of course, the greatest

    Adiós, Don Jalapeño

    I can still vividly remember the first time I tried a No Label beer: the very polarizing Don Jalapeño. After work on a rather warm Wednesday evening in May, I sought shelter inside the Stag’s Head just off Richmond. Before even taking my first sip, the aroma hit my sinuses, the sweet but fiery pepper

    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

    New Beer Cans and Bottles All Over Houston

    Only a few years back, the only beer you could find packaged from Houston breweries was a handful of bottles able to fit into a small corner at a beer department. Today, cans, bottles, and even prepackaged growlers from Houston breweries provide enough options to fill entire aisles. I got a chance to catch up

  • 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.
