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

You can drive by this place 100 times without noticing a brewery is there; I know I did. In the age of social media and the craft beer explosion you would think that there was no way a new brewery could open its doors without a flood of publicity, especially in an industry that is

Untapped Houston is this Saturday at Discovery Green, and you’re obviously going. You’re not? Oh. Well, you really should. It’s Houston’s best annual craft beer festival by far, and also doubles as a pretty cool music fest too. Plus, the weather is supposed to be awesome. So, yeah. You should buy tickets. Go. I’ll wait.

Last week, I drove from my lovely Midtown castle to the faraway lands known as “The Heights” in order to sample the new beers at Town in City Brewery. Though the journey was far and perilous (traffic on 45N), I rested easy knowing that soon, I’d get to try some new-to-me and new-to-Houston beers, almost

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)

There’s a new beer festival making its debut in Houston on August 22nd. Organized by Jon Denman, host of the local craft beer and craft spirits focused radio show Drink of Ages, Houston Funk Fest will feature “over 50 wild, farmhouse and sour ales”. Inspired by a recent trip to the South Denver Beer Fest,

Every quarter, Brew York New York compiles a list of the top-rated beers and breweries in NYC, using data found on Untappd. Since I spend quite a bit of time in NYC myself, I love this list as it answers two questions dear to me: What should I drink next? and Which ones have I

About a fortnight past – apparently while I was otherwise engrossed in National Hot Dog Day and Brash beer releases – the web was all atwitter over an unrepentant diner owner in Maine who yelled at a screaming toddler who was disrupting her restaurant. As the internet has become little more than an unfiltered stream of vitriol

Last year, in a celebration of 20 years of business, Saint Arnold held a special “cellar event” that included special beers that were new, rare, or created for that event alone. It was marvelous, and a really nice way to celebrate two decades of craft beer in Houston. This year, Saint Arnold decided to hold

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

I fear that if government can find a reason to shut it down they will. Of course it should be legal, because it's appears to be a voluntary sort of thing right?

[…] I wasn’t expecting was how several local Houston breweries would not only accept the challenge, but in some cases—SpindleTap, Baa Baa Brewhouse and Copperhead Brewery immediately leap to […]

[…] an entire city of beer drinkers this past March with Houston Haze, which, it could be argued is on the level of some of the best NEIPAs in the business. For fans of the style, the Citra- and Galaxy-drenched Houston Haze is one of the most important […]
