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

Special thanks to Isaiah Warner for his help collecting this list of bills that could impact the Texas beer industry and for his help explaining the legislative process in Texas. Update 4/17/17: When this list was originally compiled, sister bills HB 3287/SB 2083 had not been submitted. These distributor-funded bills, which restrict the ability of

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

Saint Arnold’s barrel-aged series has reached its post-hype phase. Don’t let that stop you from hunting for the latest iteration, out today, because it’s delicious. A couple years ago, you needed a spreadsheet and a hashtag to track down a single bottle of each Bishop’s Barrel release. You also had to go to a bar

This weekend might be one of the busiest of the year with the rodeo, Saint Patrick’s Day, and March Madness. The main attraction on Saturday, March 18th, is on the Eastside, where 8th Wonder Brewery will be holding their annual brewed-up music festival for their 4th anniversary. We chatted with 8th Wonder president and co-founder

Pumpkinator vs. Rocket Fuel in the Sweet 16 is gonna be brutal. I’ve got EZ7 as my Cinderella. Think Yellow Rose can win it all

When I wrote “Who will be Houston’s Tree House or Trillium?”, I figured we’d see some breweries gradually approach the style and brew some reasonable attempts, but that it would take some time before we saw a true player on the hazy AF juice front. SpindleTap said “f%7* all that noise” and is on the cusp

Out of all the local brewery responses to the “Who Will Be Houston’s Trillium or Tree House?“ essay, there was one that carried an unexpected air of intrigue, given that it stemmed from a producer that hasn’t even opened yet. Amid the thread of a Facebook post about the article, one commenter innocuously announced the
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.
