Copperhead Striker IPA is the first beer I had from them. I remember seeing it on the shelf late this summer and being really excited to see a new, smaller brewery on the shelf! I swear I wrote about it, but I lost the write up somehow? I've bought it a few times since then because it's daaaaaang good, but as I...

Did you know that City Acre Brewing Co. sells bombers to go? Me either. I found out on a Sunday morning while trying to find a brunch spot. Lucky me, I found City Acre offers bunch. I would be making a huge mistake if I didn't take a second to tell you how good their food is. I had the Brewers plate - I think - a plate full of goo-ood food for around 10 bucks!...

The post that almost never happened: After a few weeks of gathering beer from all over town, and one long ass drive to Galveston Island, we did it. We had them all. We met up with a few other friends for a potluck meal just before Thanksgiving, and the Top 5 Best IPAs in Houston was born. None of us are official BJCP judges or cicerones (yet), as you may have read elsewhere on the site, but here's our take as consumers - just regular dudes that...

Fast forward almost two years, and I'm in the garage trying to fix my wife's headlight. I knew I wanted a beer, and when I opened up my fridge, Art Car IPA smiled at me almost as to say, "You're fixing the car, dude. I'm the one." Bingo, Art Car IPA it is. Saint Arnold Art Car IPA smells of fruity hops, and the taste...

When it comes to Belgian beers, I either love them or I don't. The flavors are just too complex to leave room for any gray area. This Derrickman Dubbel is good, and it's even more special knowing that as I'm drinking it, it's gone. It was a good beer, and I rated it accordingly. What'd you think - Derrickman Dubbel leave you gushing?...

We asked a bit about the philosophy behind the beer and who they're trying to reach. Bobby explained to us that Back Pew Brewing isn't really interested in brewing beer to transition people from macro to craft. He believes there are plenty of other breweries that'll do that just fine. "We brew beer that we believe in, simple as that." That's why they put so much effort into brewing a...

Last time I had Derailler, it was icy-cold outside, we were at Cycler's Brewing interviewing Clay, and we had it straight from the tank. It was cold and could've benefitted from warming up a bit, but with the temperature outside, that wasn't a luxury we could afford. Despite the cold temp, the beer was delicious. This time...
