    You Should Be Drinking Texas Beer Refinery

    I’m gonna cut straight to the chase: Texas Beer Refinery is producing incredible beers that more people need to drink. Now that I’ve gotten that off my chest, allow me to remind you that I love goses. I think they are tasty, I think they are refreshing, and I think you could make a pretty

    Karbach F.U.N. 013, aka Kentucky Habit, is delicious and you should absolutely drink it. But it’s only half the beer you’re expecting. Let’s back up. The latest release in Karbach’s F.U.N. series — their limited, occasional, barrel-aged line — is a bourbon-barrel aged Belgian quadrupel.

    #DrinkNow: attack your cellar

    OK, so now that you know what #DrinkNow is and you’re on-board with the idea, you need a plan of attack against that unwieldy cellar. (If you don’t know what I’m talking about, go read the first two posts of this series.) Here are a few things that should help you make it work: Take

    #DrinkNow: the exceptions to the rule

    After bugging you to stop aging beer and encouraging you to embrace the freshness of #DrinkNow, there’s another thing we should discuss: some beers age really well. This post is about the exceptions to the #DrinkNow rule. First things first: If you don’t know the basics for aging beer, go check out this interview with Adam

    Mongoose versus Cobra has the best flights in Houston

    Back in August, I asked, “Where are Houston’s flights?” Since then, many breweries have begun offering flights, and slowly, my vision for a small-drink Houston brewery scene is coming true. At the same time, a few bars have begun offering flights, including what is probably the greatest flight program in Houston at Mongoose versus Cobra

    New Year’s Resolution: Drink (Somewhat) Healthier Beer!

    We’ve officially reached the beginning of a new calendar year which means it’s time to reflect and aspire to a better 12 months than the previous. Beware of all your friends on social media with that unoriginal “new year, new me”, though. Most of us want to make improvements in things such as relationships, career,

    #DrinkNow: why you should stop aging beer

    Right now, in your pantry/closet/beer fridge/storage unit, a beer is getting worse. Don’t feel too bad; it’s not (entirely) your fault. But if you’re anything like most craft drinkers I know — and you’re reading this site, so you probably are — then you’re currently the proud owner of beer that is way past its

    8th Wonder February Giveaway!

    8th Wonder draws their inspiration from this great city, whether it be Hakeem and his Dream Shake, NASA’s Mission Control, or local store Premium Goods. Even their name came from walking into the warehouse that is now their home and saying, “Hey, this roof looks like the Astrodome.” They’ve given us a bunch of stuff to give

    #3FIT

    As I reflect on the recent news that the total number of breweries in the United States has reached an all-time high, I find myself thinking more and more about my beer buying habits. I’ve always been the type of craft beer drinker who wanted to try every beer from every brewery. With the knowledge that there

    Favorite Beers 2015

    We asked our writers to send in a few sentences about their favorite beers of the year. We asked them for a favorite local beer and a favorite out-of-town beer. Some of these have been around for years and some aren’t available in Houston. This isn’t meant to be a “best of 2015” article; it’s just
