Rye’d With Pride was brewed with rye malt and dry hopped using a combination of Centennial, Idaho-7 and El Dorado hops, then lagered for 8 weeks to perfection.

The release was accompanied by several vendor tables, including one run by Cole and Brett, who were auctioning off HTown Beer Guys merch and canned succulent plants. The auction raised an additional $250 for Grace Place.

Counter Common Beerworks and Kitchen is located at 5413 Bellaire Blvd, Bellaire TX. 77401
