    ‘Revisiting’ a historic beer at New Magnolia Brewing

    Over 10 years ago, when my now wife and I were planning our wedding, one of the places we looked for the venue was the old Houston Ice and Brewing Building, also known as Magnolia Brewing. We ended up going with other options, but the Magnolia Brewing Company has always stuck in my head as

    A perfect beer for a Houston Winter

    Last weekend I had the fortunate time of visiting Equal Parts Brewing, located a stone’s throw from Ninfa’s on Navigation. The beer that drew me to them was a new release that they brewed in collaboration with Country Malt Group. Neo-noir is a Munich Style Dunkle brewed with a new chocolate malt from Bestmalz in

    A Great IPA from Great Heights

    The greater Heights area has been fortunate to have a surge of great breweries in the last few years. It started with Eureka Heights, and was quickly followed by other tasty breweries like New Magnolia and Astral. One of my personal favorites has been Great Heights Brewing, located on Wakefield in the Garden Oaks neighborhood.

    A Whole (Foods) New Brew

    Whole Foods Brewing just released their second can this week without much fanfare. I was fortunate enough to be at the Post Oak location earlier this week and saw these cans in the cooler, so I had to grab them to try. This is the first of Head Brewer Chris Shelton’s original recipes that I

    Great Beers and Food Make Local Group Out of This World

    With their official grand opening February 28th last year, Local Group Brewing has had a difficult first year in business. I fortunately got to check them out then and was looking forward to trying more of their beers and food. Then the pandemic and ensuing shut down went into effect, and ended all plans. I
