    Saint Arnold Releases Bishop’s Barrel #18 (BB18)

    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

    5 Breweries Put Their Twist on Saint Arnold Classics

    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

    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

    Heights Bike Trail Brewery Tour – Sunday May 7th

    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

    Adiós, Don Jalapeño

    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

    These Are the Beer Bills That Could Impact Texas Breweries

    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

    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

    Saint Arnold Bishop’s Barrel 17

    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

  • 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?
