Oktoberfest: Story of a Party

It might come as a surprise to many of you, but Oktoberfest didn’t start as a beer festival and it is celebrated more in September, than October, in Germany! The first “Oktoberfest” was a wedding reception for Prince Ludwig I, who married Princess Therese of Saxony-Hildburghausen. The marriage took place…

what’s the HAZE about?

With the introduction of the pilsner hundreds of years ago, the look of a beer became a point of focus for drinkers. At the time, it was an interest in having brilliantly clear, golden beers like liquid sunshine. In recent years, starting in the American Northeast, a move towards cloudy…

Located in the historic town of Fort Bragg in California’s Mendocino Coast, they have won 70 awards in national and international competitions. Upon tasting this beer, it was pure satisfaction.

Saint Arnold • 5 O’Clock Pils

“Light, crisp and easy” is the definition of what a summer beer should be, but flavor should not be lacking in that formula. Saint Arnold has taken the Czech Pilsner, beloved for its ease of drinking, and infused it with flavor through dry-hopping to create a flavorful beer that doesn’t…

Ommegang Brewery has brought us some of our best selling beers like Abbey Ale, Three Philosophers and Hennepin. This one should be no exception considering they’ve teamed up with Leifamns Brewery. Rosetta is an ale aged with cherries and presents bold notes of cream and cherry tart with a big…

Real Ale Gose

The Texas summer, all 9 months of it, is almost unbearable. Real Ale has brewed a nearly perfect offering for this heat with their Gose—a tart, mineral-driven wheat beer with a touch of lime. Packaged in cans for poolside, lakeside or river-bound drinking; Real Ale Gose is everything you want…

New Belgium Brewing Rampant IPA

Rampant Imperial IPA is everything hop fans have come to expect from
 the style with a little something extra–a surprisingly reasonable
 price. Rampant can stand toe-to-toe with the biggest, meanest IPAs in
 the store. This ode to bitterness is first and foremost a floral
 experience. The herbaceous front reminds me…

Brewery Ommegang Hennepin

One of my personal favorite Saisons, Ommegang’s Hennepin delivers plenty of flavor yet is still refreshing in the Texas heat. One of the classic American Saisons, Hennepin exhibits the spicy overtones of freewheeling Belgian-style fermentation and the ripe juicy apple and pear tones of an especially friendly farmhouse ale. If…

Ranger Creek La Bestia • 750ml Bottle

Ranger Creek Brewing La Bestia Aimable

I am beyond excited by what’s being produced by Texas craft breweries. Beer has taken hold of Texans in the most amazing way. For a long time, our state was viewed by most (including Texans) as only a place for the big name producers. Now the rest of the nation…

Left Hand Polestar Pilsner

Left Hand Brewing Company Polestar Pilsner

Left Hand's Polestar Pilsner is one of the most easily overlooked 
beers in the stores. This warm-weather gem comes in a six-pack so 
evocative of a cold clear night that it would be more appropriate as 
a winter warmer. Instead, this is one of the lightest, most refreshing
 craft brews…

Avery Brewing • White Rascal

While you'll have no trouble finding an aggressive IPA, a
 double stout or Scotch ale in cans these days, the milder more 
sessionable craft styles seem to be much less plentiful. Happily, Avery's can release of White Rascal is bucking this trend. One of my 
favorite American wheats, White Rascal…

Boulevard Tank 7 Farmhouse Ale

Boulevard Brewing Company Tank 7

My favorite style of beer is easily Saison. It’s a Belgian-style beer with a storied past, light, crisp, and easy drinking with layers of flavor. Boulevard has taken this style, known for yeasty spice (pepper) and hoppy fruit flavors/aromas, boosted the alcohol and dry-hopped it with a modern American hop…
