I am honored to be collaborating with Houston Beer Guide. If you get a chance, check out my website BrittskiBeers.com where I write about my beer travels around Texas, America, and the world. Cheers! Not long ago, it seemed that all beer in New Orleans was mopped up from the gutters of Bourbon Street and

Every year, Sierra Nevada Brewing invites multiple breweries to brainstorm and develop new recipes for a series of (typically) one-off brews for their Beer Camp series. The series seeks to showcase new collaborations with different breweries, and is essentially a meeting of minds; where great craft breweries come together to either develop new and exciting

Today marks the release of the 18th beer in Saint Arnold’s Bishop’s Barrel series. For this entry, Brewer/Wood Cellar Manager Aaron Inkrott drew inspiration from his mother’s oatmeal cookies. BB18 is an “Oat Wine” aged in WhistlePig Rye Whiskey barrels for nine months. The base beer is similar to an English style barleywine, with oats

Saint Arnold Brewing Company is the oldest craft brewery in Texas, but that title doesn’t do justice to the impact they’ve had on the landscape of beer in Houston. I think calling them “The Godfather of Houston Beer” is a more appropriate title. Over the last 23 years, brewers and staff from Saint Arnold have

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

This Sunday, May 7th, Holler, Platypus, and Eureka Heights are teaming up for a 3-stop brewery tour – on bikes. The majority of the route will be along the Heights Hike & Bike trail or on dedicated bike lanes, so it should be an easy ride. It’s even easier when you think about everyone who just

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

Great opportunity to try a Houston brewery I have not tried just yet!

Thanks Charles! We've decided to limit our map to Houston breweries (and breweries that primarily sell beer in Houston and/or its suburbs). While Shiner does have a 77XXX zip code, they are geographically much closer to Austin and San Antonio.

Shiner - Texas's largest craft brewery - is impacted by this barrel limit as well. They're currently the only craft brewery in Texas that isn't allowed to sell beer on site. They're unable to test out "small batch" beers sold on draft directly to consumers. Packaging and distribution is a huge portion of beer manufacturing, and preventing them from testing out new ideas is limiting their creativity and the potential discovery of a great new beer!

Excellent resource, the brewery map. I just want to request that you please add Spoetzl Brewery, in Shiner, Texas. Thank you!
