Beer Review: Kingsbrau from Back Pew Brewing

#HoustonBeerMonth Guest Submission from Ronnie Risner

Fest season is upon us!

I have the fortune of Backpew Brewing being one of the closest breweries to me, and recently they released a fan favorite. Kingsbrau is a festbier that really gets its chance to shine as those summer days leave you yearning for cooler temperatures. Kingsbrau is light enough to quench that summer thirst all day long yet holds well in October’s cooler days and is a perfect beer to camp with!

A pour of Kings Brau Festbier


Kingsbrau lends a floral nose that is immediately noticed along with light citrus notes, the color is deep and golden almost a rich yellow. The first sip yields a malty taste that is balanced and surprisingly light. The crispness of the beer leaves a nice mouth watering feel with a light hop bite at the backend which leaves you ready for another sip immediately. After the first pint Kingsbrau is not weighing you down, and could easily be consumed several more times without feeling bloated. 

Kingsbrau is easy to find thanks to Backpew’s handy tool on their website that allows you to input your zip code to see where the festbier is available near you.

Cheers!

    In my personal opinion, I feel Houston has been lacking in American amber style beer options. What was once a booming style has been dwindled down to just a small handful of breweries offering a solid year round amble ale. I found what is definitely a contender for my favorite amber in Middie Back from Elder Son Brewing.
