    Karbach Staycation

    Gone are the sweaters and hoodies and henleys, out are the vented shirts and pearl snaps and guayaberas. It’s been a wet spring in Houston, but when the rains leave the moisture stays, and the humidity has descended like a biodome over our fair burg. With the peacoats go the porters, with the scarves the stouts.

    Pint of Science in Houston

    I first heard about Pint of Science from fellow Houston Beer Guide writer, Jack Highberger. Their concept is simple: scientific speakers in bars, where like-minded scientific-thinking individuals who like to drink (read: cool people) can get together, listen to something interesting and impressive, hoist some beers, and discuss. Immediately I became interested, as my love

    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,

    Are You Prepared for the Flood?

    When I think about what inspires me, regarding the future of craft beer in Houston and throughout Texas, I look toward the innovators. The forward thinkers. The entrepreneurs. I am intrigued by those who choose to blend passion, good taste, and a unique vision to change the way we think about the beverages we love

    Rye Fidelity

    Kids today have never known a world without iPods (get off my lawn!), but anyone of legal drinking age remembers that transporting a library of music was once an onerous task involving boxes of albums or casettes, binders full of CDs. Much as the Kindle has done to bookstores and libraries, the digital age has

    Beer, Poker, and Lawnmowers

    Coming out of college I did not care about beer. Why should I? Beer was boring. Beer was easy. Beer was simple. In college, the people around me who drank it did so in mass quantities in an attempt to take on the biggest, baddest, cheapest buzz they could survive. Flavor? What in beer could

    Ode on a Neighborhood Pub

    With apologies to John Keats, some places simply invite one to wax poetic, to recall myriad formal examples of Plato’s ideal, to open the floodgates of memory like Proust’s madeleine. I’m speaking here of those neighborhood pubs so woven into the fabric of their environs that they nigh attain the original function of the icehouse

Yes, Houston Beer Week is here, led by a wonderful group of hard working volunteers (they’re mighty good looking too), through whose efforts HBW is not only back after missing a

  • 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?

  • […] 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 […]
