    There has been some talk and a bit of grumbling among the Houston Beer Knurd community with the Flying Saucer’s decision to end their glass night at their downtown location. Manager Joshua Justice reached out to Houston Beer Guide to offer some information about the decision. Kenneth Krampota: Why did you decide to cancel the glass

    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

    Flying Saucer’s Gose Tasting

    Ever since my first taste of Bayerischer Bahnhof’s Leipziger Gose, I’ve absolutely loved the gose style of beer. The mingling of salt and coriander with a sour wheat base is interesting and delicious, and the low alcoholic content is a perfect touch allowing extra enjoyment of more goses. So when I heard that the Flying

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

    by Christopher Davila Giveaway

  • 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!
