    Have Your Cookie and Drink It, Too

    Forget cookies and milk — cookies and beer is where it’s at. As craft beer has become more popular, interest in beer and food pairing has increased. Some of the most creative pairings involve a favorite American treat: Girl Scout cookies. As articles of Girl Scout cookie pairings spread across social media, Ballast Point Brewing

    Mongoose versus Cobra has the best flights in Houston

    Back in August, I asked, “Where are Houston’s flights?” Since then, many breweries have begun offering flights, and slowly, my vision for a small-drink Houston brewery scene is coming true. At the same time, a few bars have begun offering flights, including what is probably the greatest flight program in Houston at Mongoose versus Cobra

  • Untapped Festival 2015 – All the beer. All the music. All the sweat.

    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

  • 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!

  • I agree that Mr Goodman isn't the best messenger, but the message is still valid. The Texas Craft Brewer's Guild, comprised of the vast majority of Texas's small and independent breweries, is also against the Bill. If it passes, every brewery in Texas will be devalued. Investors will be less willing to invest, lenders will be less willing to lend, and breweries will find it more difficult to finance growth. This Bill will do nothing positive for small Texas breweries - it's only purpose is to increase the control distributors have over the Texas beer market. I personally no longer support breweries who have sold out to ABI, but I want that to be my choice and not a government mandate. Michael Graham Co-Founder Austin Beerworks
