    Thistle Draftshop Is Now Pouring Beer in Spring

    While Thistle Draftshop Owner Mary Thorn never planned to become an entrepreneur, she says the thought was always in the back of her mind. An accountant, her interest in beer led her to apply for a position at Saint Arnold Brewing Company several years ago. She worked there for seven years, sparking a passion for the

    D&T Drive Inn Celebrates 4 Years

    When I moved to the Brooke Smith neighborhood in Greater Heights in 2016, I happily adopted D&T Drive Inn at 1307 Enid as my new local, as I had enjoyed the place many times as an out-of-neighborhood visitor since they opened in 2013, given its convenient location just off I-45 at Cavalcade. Fast forward to

    Flying Saucer Downtown is Opening the Cellar

    Talk to any Houstonian Beer Knurd and they will all agree: Flying Saucer Downtown is the OG Houston beer bar. No matter your opinion of other iconic beer bars in this wonderful city, they cannot compete with the volume of beer that Flying Saucer has amassed in its 17 years. With an ever-expanding stockpile, Flying Saucer is

    Whole Foods Market Beer Dinners: What to Expect

    At first, the setting of a WFM beer dinner feels exactly like you’d imagine eating dinner overlooking a Whole Foods would feel: eco-chic and a little sterile. That tone was softened by the gift bags filled with organic snacks and brewmaster Dave Ohmer rocking a felt fedora, complete with a German flag colored band and

    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

    Flying Saucer Downtown Ending Glass Night

    There has been some talk and a bit of grumbling among the Houston Beer Knurd community with the Flying Saucer’s decision to end their glass night at their downtown location. Manager Joshua Justice reached out to Houston Beer Guide to offer some information about the decision. Kenneth Krampota: Why did you decide to cancel the glass

    She’s sixteen, she’s beautiful, and her beer will be yours and mine. Flying Saucer Houston is celebrating its sixteenth anniversary on August 14 with some amazing beers and sweets from local eateries.

    Beers Looking At You

      It was a couple of months ago while scrolling through my Facebook feed that I first saw mention of Beers Looking At You. The name struck me as interesting and so I started looking into it. I discovered that it would be a new spot to get growlers, and better yet it was just around
