    Saint Arnold Releases Bourbon Barrel Aged Pumpkinator

    Although pumpkin beers have been around for centuries, their popularity has definitely increased in proportion with other pumpkin spiced goods. Go down the grocery store beer aisle, and there will be countless pumpkin spiced options. Some of these beers are good, some seem just to be following the fad, and some stand out above the

    NOLA Brewing to Launch in Houston

    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

    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

    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

    8th Wonder 4th Annual Celebr8ion of Beer

    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

    SpindleTap Nails it With Houston Haze

    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

    Whole Foods Market Beer Dinners: What to Expect

    At first, the setting of a WFM beer dinner feels exactly like you’d imagine eating dinner overlooking a Whole Foods would feel: eco-chic and a little sterile. That tone was softened by the gift bags filled with organic snacks and brewmaster Dave Ohmer rocking a felt fedora, complete with a German flag colored band and

    Exclusive peek into Winter Stout’s retirement bash

    Houston Beer Guide managed to get an exclusive invite to the retirement of one of Houston’s greats, a beer that may be departing for now, but will live forever in our hearts. Here’s a transcript of the event: <Lawnmower taps on a pint glass> “Can I get everyone’s attention for just a few moments? Thank

  • 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.

    by Josh F. Contact Us

  • 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!
