Houston Beer News

What’s the haps on the hops? With nearly 50 breweries and a constantly growing list, there’s a ton of Houston beer news to keep up with. We won’t kill ourselves with trying to post every event here – follow us on Instagram and Facebook for more of that stuff.

 

However, when some big news breaks, we’ll do our best to share it here first. Dawn “The Dutchess” at Hop Stop Humble referred to us one time as the TMZ of beer. We’ll take it!

 

If you have some Houston beer news that needs to be shared with the masses, drop us a line. We’ll add it to the list.

  • The irony here is that last year we had to work pretty hard to gather all the IPAs, and do it quickly all while being mindful of the bottled/canned dates. This time, we didn't have to worry about freshness nearly as much, but we managed to wrangle all the stouts together much quicker. We met up at Drink of Ages and had Jon partake in the...

  • When they launch Friday December 1st they will be doing On Demand only and then the 2nd or 3rd week in December they will launch their app. Full launching in January with the rest of the options..

  • Many of y'all are already a part of the Saint Arnold Army, others may be avid Pub Crawlers, but how many of you are a part of the Saint Arnold Society? Probably zero as of right now, but you'll be digging through the couch cushions...

  • In its most simplest form, a Crowler is a big ass can of beer. If that’s all you came for, then you’re good to go to your next stop as you kill time at work thinking about beer related things instead of well, work. But in typical Beer Chronicle fashion...

  • Did you miss out on the first two batches of F U Harvey Tekus? Fear not, fellow beer-nerd. You too can give Harvey the bird each time you pour up a cold one.

  • Hurricane Harvey is raining on everyone's parade. Of the 6 people on the Beer Chronicle team, 3 have been impacted dramatically by these floods, and we only represent a tiny sample of the people affected city-wide.

  • Want a F U Harvey Teku? Meet us at Baa Baa Brewhouse today Sat. 9/9/2017. These past few weeks have been tough for the city. If you've been...

  • You've probably been outside of your home and seen firsthand that many of the divisions aren't as polarizing as your friends on Facebook make them seem. But some of them are (for some people). For us, one of those polarizing divisions is standing behind independent brewers. If you're...
